Everything Else / Re: ARE YOU WATCHING WIMBLEDON!?!?!?!

That was INCREDIBLE. I was riveted, even after 10+ hours.

We've only got three chapters and there's already Hoid speculation?? Ah, this is going to be a fun read...

Seriously, after just that, wow. I felt the SCOPE.

This is supposed to be something like a 10 book series, right?

Noooooo!!! August 17th was perfect! By the 31st I'll be in over my head with graduate work.... Blast.  :(

Gah, alpha readers. A pox upon them all and their cursed good fortune!

I'm with you! I was flipping out like a kid in a candy store as I was reading it.

The Stormlight.... WOW. That is sooooo cool. And the setting. We often rave about Brandon's magic systems, the fight scenes, etc. But I like the setting, at least what little was described in the prologue. I felt like I could see it.

And, ok, the Shardblades materializing out of thin air? How cool is that? Szeth didn't take the Shardblade, but could he have taken it if he wanted? Also, is the 's' silent in the pronunciation?

Found it at a B&N. I have yet to find a locally owned/run bookstore in Orange County, Mission Viejo area. Other wise I'd support them like crazy.

On a side note: The prologue was bloody freaking genius, coated with awesome, dipped in chocolate. (it was my first taste of SA so it blew me away) I'm really going to enjoy this series, I can tell.

That is the perfect description! I was trying to find a way to tell a friend how freaking awesome the prologue was, and that is definitely the right way.

Also, I haven't seen it at Borders yet. A friend who I've recently converted to Sanderson fandom was there yesterday to pick up a copy of "The Well of Ascension" and he didn't see any. Borders is always behind on these things... at least for books I am interested in.

Warbreaker comes out in paperback in March... (don't know if you can wait until then, but just a heads up... I marked it in my planner.  ;D)

I would recommend Elantris... and then in a couple of months, if she likes Elantris, you can pick up that Warbreaker paperback for her and she'll know you're still thinking about her.  ;)

I'd say the better a book is, the harder it is to match fans' expectations with a movie. A great book is far longer, more detailed, and more complex than any movie can be, so trying to adapt one into a movie results in an abbreviated and altered pale reflection of the source material. It may be a great movie in its own right…but a lot of fans of the book don't see that. They just see how the script writers had to butcher the book to get there.

So true. If this ever gets made, and even if it really is an amazing movie, some part of me will inevitably be let down. I'm too emotionally attached to the book and the characters the way they are to be completely satisfied.

Yeah, that cover left something to be desired... I need a copy with the new cover... my old one is worn out. I'll have to keep it though, as a holy relic of all the people I've converted to Sanderson fans with it.

I still think starting the process of getting tattoos on the entire back is pretty hardcore.... but you're right, Steel Inquisitor tattoos are a whole different level of hardcore. That's a scary level of hardcore.

^ That is hardcore. Can I nominate Creative_Vortx for the title of Superfan?

Did I really just see someone posit DWAYNE JOHNSON for the role of SAZED?!

I couldn't have read that right. Please tell me I didn't read that correctly.  :o

Under no circumstances should Keanu Reeves be let near this.

bahaha... I totally agree. And neither should Vin Diesel. *shudder*
