An except of the prologue through to the third chapter of The Way of Kings marked my first taste of Brandon Sanderson's fiction - read about my experiences here if you missed them first time out. In short, I had a fine time. I don't know that I yet love Sanderson's work, but I certainly came away from the excerpt over at Tor.com hungry for more.
My proof - one of but a few to have made it all the way across the Atlantic, I'm given to understand - arrived in the mail a few days after I put up the aforementioned post. I still haven't picked it up.
It's nothing to stress about, mind you. The best and the worst of us feel this kind of fatigue once in a while. The Speculative Scotsman won't be taking a sabbatical, my stubborness alone will see to that - reviews of each and every one of those books will make it onto the blog shortly, have no fear. For the last little while I've feeling a bit meh about reading; it's as simple as that.
There doesn't seem to have been half such a hew and cry over the audio excerpt as accompanied the release of the first selection, so consider yourself well and truly on notice, ladies and gentlemen. The Way of Kings only gets better. If you haven't already, read the first three chapters here - you only need register at Tor.com - and then go listen to the second excerpt. Doctor's orders, you hear?
