Somewhere between a sketch and a painting, so I might actually continue this one day but it turned out so differently from how I had envisioned that I did not feel like continuing for now. Stormlight Archive is one of the best book series I’ve read in a long time, by far.
Kaladin fron the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson
*Give you the story with occasional clues of some secrets and possible plot turns to maintain mysteriousness*
*Gives you a shitton of clues sprinkling them like a drunken Santa - in the chapters, epigraphs, flashbacks, interviews - and still blows your mind up to pieces with EVERY finale of EVERY book*
Until 1932, the 180-page booklet by de Carvajal, a secret Jew who was burned at the stake by the Inquisition in Spain’s colony of Mexico, resided in that country’s National Archives.
Then it vanished. The theft transformed the manuscript into an object of obsession, a kind of Maltese Falcon, for a coterie of Inquisition scholars and rare-book collectors. Almost nothing was heard about the document for more than 80 years — until it showed up 13 months ago at a London auction house. The manuscript was on sale for $1,500, because the house had little sense of its value.
One thing I do love about Brandon Sanderson’s work, is that you’ll get stuff, like:
“Somehow we’ll find it. The balance between whom we wish to be and whom we need to be”
And then, you’ll find these gems:
“‘She assumes,’ Wax said, 'that out detective style isn’t normally the punchy-punchy, stabby-stabby type,’
'To be fair,’ Wayne said, 'it’s usually a more shooty-shooty, whacky-whacky type,’”
FAVOURITE BOOK SERIES (1/?): Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson
Life before death, Strength before weakness, Journey before destination.
“There are two kinds of people in this world, son. Those who save lives, and those who take lives.“
“And what of those who protect and defend? Those who save lives by taking lives?”
“That’s like trying to stop a storm by blowing harder. Ridiculous. You can’t protect by killing.”
