The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive #1) (Audiobook) - DNF 17%.
The Way of Kings - Brandon Sanderson

Technically, this is competently written, and the narrators do a decent job with their parts once I sped up the playback to 1.25 times normal speed. But... 

 

I was bored a lot of the time. It got interesting for awhile. I like Kaladan and Shallan, but they don't make up for the clunky world-building or the overall awkward tone of the writing. This reads like an opus to fanfic much of the time, and it's cringe-worthy fanfic at that.

 

And the whole lighteyes/darkeyes thing just feels weird. Like the author wanted to include something about racism, but didn't want to start up a sh*tstorm by doing it badly, so decided that eye color made a good alternative. Maybe he heard about Jane Elliot's blue eyes experiment and figured it was a good stand in. It's not though.

 

If this were only 200 or 300 pages, I might feel compelled to power through to the end, but there are another 800+ pages to this thing, so my patience has run dry.

The Outsider ★★★★☆
The Outsider - Stephen King

The best and worst of SK: Great characters to invest in, author violating your trust and investment in those characters, awful events fantastically described, wildly uneven pacing, strangely dissatisfying ending. Subtract a star for placing at least part of the events in some bizarre version of Texas where entirely distinct geographic regions are mishmashed together in a way that is completely unrecognizable. Add a star for

bringing back Holly from the Mr Mercedes trilogy.

(spoiler show)

Add another star for an outstanding performance by Will Patton.

 

Audiobook, purchased via Audible.
