The Splintercast Reads Words of Radiance, Episode 8: Interludes Set #2


Phew, after that amazing ending of Part Two, we need a little breather I think, so it's just interludes today, where Feather misses some very critical information! What a slacker... Unrelated, but fun fact: when Brandon refers to Words of Radiance is a trilogy, he's referring to the fact that in other markets where the book will be split, there are natural break points. The end of part two is one of them. Neat!

The Taln interlude is probably the most haunting thing I've ever read. That ending...

Also, oh Feather. Missing so much from that Zahel interlude. You just skip right along ;) Hehe. Dork.

Shuuuuuuush I'm not good at picking up hints! WE HAVE ESTABLISHED THIS. I barely remembered that he was the swordmaster, and that was a direct relationship with Renarin, so I REALLY should have remembered it. Oops.

 

I didn't realize it was Vasher with lifesense. I think I thought he had spren-sense, actually...

I missed it the first time too. And then I got the idea that Zahel was a world-hopper, and reread it. My response (second time): O.O

 

When I realized he was Vasher I figured I should read Warbreaker again since I haven't for a few years.

See, I caught that he said "investiture" but I didn't realize I was supposed to figure it out. My reaction to foreshadowy things is "Wow that's probably foreshadowing, I'm sure there will be a reveal later, so I'm not gonna think about it right now because figuring it out would take time and would be work."

 

So I say things like "there are a lot of mysteries here" and I thought we were going to have a big reveal in the book. I'm not any good at these things that I'm supposed to piece together on my own without a big reveal. See: it took me 3 readthroughs to realize Shallan had a shardblade. orz

I have truly enjoyed your reactions Alyx. But I'm beginning to wonder if You and/or Eric have decided to stretch the Splintercast Reads WOR out until the release of Stones Unhallowed.

Hey, I'm all the way edited through Ch. 41. (The Feather-infamous Ch. 41.) And I'm probably going to do more tonight, so he'll be even MORE behind. However, I will also continually poke him on Skype and make him do things.

 

(He says he'll upload the next 3 later tonight, btw.)

I'm sorry! I've been really busy and exhausted this week. It's really the writeups that take time. But yes, next one is coming up very shortly! With, uh, a "well thought out" write up...

I don't know if I believe you Feather, his weekly podcast have come out religiously all eight weeks since June 9, 2012.

Look, when I said there'd be a holiday break and we'd back in the New Year, we never specified which year we would return...
