Стал замечать, что теперь неотъемлемым атрибутом папика со спиногрызами становится детский самокат через плечо.
Видимо личинку без самоката теперь тут же забирают социальные службы.


“Rhytm of War”, Brandon Sanderson

As usual with Sanderson, by the mid-book the story becomes a slog.
Kaladin tries to escape Pursuer, over and over again. It’s almost like “Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner” series.
Jasnah chapter was a total disaster. Why this fight was even necessary? To show that she’s a Mary Sue, that’s not only smarter that all men, but also fights better than all man? I brace myself for Part 4 and return of Shallan again.
Venli is still the best character by far. The conflict between her and Eshonai is very well done, each side has a rather clear motivation. Venli thinks Eshonai takes all her glory, while Eshonai feels limited by Venli. Both compete for their mother’s love.
I can’t see where the entire Sleepless/kremling stuff goes. Like we didn’t have enough sides in this conflict, now we have spying crabs?!
Finally, again there’s mention of Szeth’s new sword, and how Odium fears it. I wonder if it’s not just Odium’s ruse. Since the sword is clearly evil. Just like Odium.
