Hi!

Hello all,

So I am relatively new to Brandon’s books: I read the Mistborn trilogy barely a year ago, and have since then read all the Cosmere works, except Arcanum Unbounded and White Sand (my copies of those arrive Friday!). But, impossibly, no one in my social circle has read Sanderson*, and thus no one with whom I can espouse theories on the Cosmere.

I was hoping you would fill this gaping and chasmal hole in my life.

Love the site and look forward to future discussions!

*On the bright side, I have ready birthday and Christmas gifts for the next decade …

(1) Welcome! I'm also relatively new to this and just barely ahead of you with finishing AU and WS. (2) Beware of the cookies. (3) I am surprised by the number of people who have never heard of Brandon Sanderson. I myself am fortunate to have some friends who got me hooked on his work but this forum has been an awesome complement to that circle. (4) Have an up vote.

Ah, I just remembered something that may be of interest to you: if you sign up for Brandon's newsletter you'll get a download link for the unpublished manuscript form of White Sand. I'm about halfway through it and have loved it, especially getting to compare the great artwork in the graphic novel with the more elaborate prose description of what is going on.

Lastly, what is your preferred point of view for narratives?

Thanks! It depends: I find Shallan and Dalinar very engaging as they're such complex and proactive characters, albeit in different ways; Lift has been the funniest narrator, if only during her interlude; though I'm truly hoping for the chance of a POV from Jasnah.

I think what @Fatebreaker meant was which type of POV; as in, first, second, and third person.

Thank you! I already signed up for the newsletter but I'll look for the download link. 

And I'm missing something here ... what's wrong with cookies?

Oh, nothing at all! They are just spiked too delicious!

Here, have one from me too! Plus an upvote!
