    After kickstarter takes their cut. Which will be significant, since this is the most funded project ever

    I mean they charge the same fee for any sum money so it’s not like he’s getting extra taken out. He will get 90%+ of the money, which is insane. Not sure I’m a fan of the move.

    Could definitely backfire if the swag is shitty or shitty quality.

    I would start with Mistborn

    Elantris is his first novel and it’s good but it’s not indicative of how good his work becomes / is as a whole. Mistborn is is great and more accessible than Stormlight.

    Mistborn is where I started after A Way of Kings overwhelmed me. Go Mistborn.

    Yea, I wouldn't touch Stormlight Archives until I feel like I understand the Cosmere, generally.

    I also have like 60 pages left in Rhythm of War. Really want to finish but I have to do stupid work.

    Truman if you want to play just the tip you can read The Emperor’s Soul which is a novella and a quick read. My favorite sci-fi / fantasy novella ever.

    I started with elantris because it was a smaller commitment and I wanted to see if I liked his writing. Loved elantris and have started mistborn.

    Amen to this.

    but then mistborn.

    Elantris is one of my least favorite Sanderson books.

    So… I’m just now getting around to reading Rhythm of War even though I preordered it. Don’t judge me.

    Anyways, does anybody else find Lirin as grating as I do? It takes a lot for me to hate a character. Usually, I just find them boring/annoying, but I actively loathe Lirin. When he told Kaladin that he should have been a better slave I was speechless.

    Just finished RoW. The Sanderson Avalanche felt kind of tame this book… idk.

    Also felt like 30% of this book could have been cut and nothing would be missed. Still overall enjoyable but the weakest Stormlight novel to date imo
