    My review probably won’t be able to do this book justice. Well, justice is dead but I’ll see what I can do.It’s not an exaggeration to say that my expectations regarding Oathbringer were extremely hard to contain. I had heard a lot of fantastic things about this series the first time I went through The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance last year, but I read through them many years after their original release dates. Oathbringer is a differ...

    4.5 stars. Finishing Oathbringer was both a satisfaction and a disappointment. Satisfying because this book was absolutely astonishing in every way that I expected it to be. Disappointing because I wanted it to be longer (even though it's almost 1300 pgs and it took me over two weeks to finish it). What can I really say about Oathbringer? Questions that I have waited years for answers were finally answered, all of my favorite characters were amaz...

    Well, this was disappointing. Easily the worst so far. I postponed writing a review hoping some time and a re-read would somehow improve my opinion of the book. It didn’t.Part 1 was passable. Part 2 was watered by too many unnecessary PoVs. Part 3 was watered by too many sub-plots and not enough interaction between characters. Part 4 didn’t manage to pick up the pace. Part 5 tried to squish so many events it became chaotic. The plot takes ove...

    The Storming genius has outdone himself. Again! Words of Radiance was easily the best book I've ever read, which naturally resulted in some pretty high expectations going into Oathbringer. As much as I've tried to smother it after waiting for over 3.5 years, I just had to accept that it was futile. Who am I kidding? Sanderson has completely smashed all expectations by offering yet another best book I've ever read. Is Oathbringer a literary master...

    5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/11/14/...A full five stars to Oathbringer and nothing less. If you’ve read the two previous volumes in the Stormlight Archive, you’d probably already understand; this series is a masterful, meticulous continuation into the journey to explore the mysterious world of Roshar, and once again this third installment is revealing so much more about our characters and their roles in thi...

    Holy c**p.This was amazing.I thought it was going to be hard to top the first two doorstoppers, but this one not only outdid the others in page-count but also in the quality of the storytelling. Every aspect of it was brilliant.I'm not usually one to gush on and on about epic fantasies. Most are pretty okay and I can slog through and eventually enjoy certain ones like GoT all right, but a few really manage to jump right out there and grab you wit...

    This will just be a quick informal review as I know better reviewers have already written essay long assessments on what they think about Oathbringer. This is a difficult one for me to rate actually. The Stormlight Archive is probably my second favourite fantasy world following Malazan. I adore the characters so much. Kaladin is brilliant and I really liked Shallan's development, especially with reference to Veil. (We didn't get to see too much o...

    I am so in love with this world. And by that I mean Roshar - the spren! the storms! the spren! the Listener's rhythms and forms! THE SPREN! - but definitely also the entire Cosmere. Brandon Sanderson has created something incredible here and I'm enjoying every part of it.As for this book specifically, it was a terrific ride. We learned more about the history of Roshar and the desolations and we got some big developments in the current situation. ...

    You NAILED IT. You... genius human.First of all, this is NOT a review. There are plenty of well-spoken, coherent people in here who can give this book the justice it deserves far better than I can. This is me incoherently recounting my emotional state while I was reading it.WOW. So freaking much happened that I don't even know where to begin. It all started out well and mellow. There were lighthearted funny moments and all around ‘’calm’’...

    "Having power is a terrible burden, the worst thing imaginable, except for every other alternative." Power and its burden seems to be a major theme in Oathbringer, which features a number of exciting and frustrating developments in its 1200 pages. (The most frustrating revelation of all is the fact that we will be waiting until 2020 at least for the fourth installment.)Every Stormlight Archive volume is a character study of a different Knight Rad...

    Full review now posted!Rating: 6/5 starsThis book deserves all the stars in the Cosmere. And then some.When I read The Way of Kings, it became one of my favorite books of all time. When I read Words of Radiance, it supplanted its predecessor, which I find to be incredibly rare for a second book in a series. I was understandably impressed, but while I was excited for Oathbringer, I honestly believed there was no way it could be better than the boo...

    **UPDATE: Because ever since I read this book it has completely wrecked me from making significant progress on anything else. It's the sign of a great book when a month and three other books can pass, and your mind is still trapped by this one. Read at your own risk 😭😭😭😭.** “The question is not whether you will love, hurt, dream, and die. It is what you will love, why you will hurt, when you will dream, and how you will die. This i...

    While trying to compose a review that will do this series justice, the question becomes not whether Oathbringer was an amazing installment in the Stormlight Archive series, but how do I explain how fiercely I loved it without gushing like a fangirl? Suffice to say it’s on a pedestal. I can see so many of the brilliant ideas within it shaping fantasy works for decades to come. It truly is the next evolution in the genre similar to that brought o...

    5 "Sometimes a hypocrite is nothing more than a person who is in the process of changing" StarsSpoiler Free Section:I always feel like I get more when I read a Sanderson book. Not only is the story fantastic but the book itself is always beautiful. The art inside the book, maps and the cover jacket are always exquisite and make owning the hardback a necessity. Then there is the audio which is always well performed and makes something this size ev...

    It’s self-evident that if you’re reading book three of a series that requires a Sherpa to place each volume on your bookshelf and that is part of a series that has, as of yet, SEVEN unpublished volumes to come (don’t you die on us, Sanderson—DON’T YOU DIE!), you probably enjoyed the first two (in my case, check and check). So, if you’re reading this and wondering if you should dive into this series despite the fact that there are rumo...

    *** 4.75 ***This book was all about accepting the journey and the multitude of faults and falls it consists of, rather than look at where it has gotten you and what the destination was to begin with... The first book was the journey of Kaladin, the second Shallan's, and this one is all about Dalinar, the Blackthorn! I might write a review, eventually, when I am more capable of gathering all my thoughts, but for now I just need to say - READ THIS ...

    Review for Way of Kings Review for Words of Radiance No surprise here that a Stormlight book clocks in at 5 stars. I think this book really establishes Sanderson as THE preeminent epic fantasy writer of our day (and I will Internet fight you if you disagree). Before diving into spoilery analysis of the book let me say this was on level with the previous two books: amazing world building (natch), nuanced character development, wonderful story punc...

    Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.Having recently finished a binge read of the first three novels in The Stormlight Archive, I can honestly say my mind is filled with this intricately detailed, amazingly epic story, so much so that I am finding it difficult to put into words my feelings for this series and, specifically, its third installment: Oathbringer. Mainly, this is due to the distinct originality and uniqueness of this book, which is hard...

    3.75ish stars.After three books, I think I pretty much have a feel for this series, and I think it’s safe to say that it will never be a 5-star series for me. Not that it’s not great (I will continue to have the next installments pre-ordered on audible), and it will consistently be a solid 3.5-4 stars, maybe even 4.25 eventually, but Brandon and I just aren’t soul mates. To quote Matthew Quann’s great review, “Sanderson isn't writing th...

    Another amazing volume in this epic series. I find myself at a point much like in Book of the Fallen where how do you review this without giving away spoilers or just reviewing all the events? So much has happened. So much has changed. I think at times this book outshined its predecessors it terms of action, suspense, unforeseen reveals and especially character development. After three tomes to deliver new nuances into beloved iconic characters i...

    This is not my review but a guest contribution by my brother, at my behest.The first part of this review contains a minimal amount of spoilers. The second part though is fraught with them.I snapped into a familiar stance, honed by the perusal of thousands of pages worth of the Stormlight Archive already. It was here at last. Anticipation sprens would have had a field day around me. After gleaning as much information from the cover as I could (a R...
