Sorry for this, but, really? Link: https://www.tor.com/2017/10/17/oathbringer-by-brandon-sanderson-chapters-22-24/ "I am no philosopher, to intrigue you with piercing questions." "I am no poet, to delight you with clever allusions." "I have no doubt that you are smarter than I am. I can only relate what happened, what I have done, and then let you draw conclusions." But, why is this going on for 24+ chapters? The other books had chapter quotes that provided world-building information. Why is Sanderson wasting space writing edgy inanity? How did this stuff get through the editing process? It provides nothing, it does nothing, it has no impact on the story. It doesn't even build Jasnah's character after the 3rd chapter quote. We get it, Jasnah is a humble heretic. Does the 10,000 page Stormlight Archive really need to be 10,001? Sanderson's novellas are good and great. His epic fantasies are becoming trash. P.S. is there a method of editing/merging posts a week later?
