Comments to The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

Thanks for the great review. I too was held captive by the depth of the story, its characters, and the amazing detail of the world Mr. Sanderson created. I listened to the book on audio, and wish to thank whoever is responsible for hiring the great talent that read the book. Michael Kramer (and Kate Reading) had me laughing with Wit, crying for Kaladin, and pacing back and forth biting my nails for Bridge 4 and for Dalinar. The only feedback for the audio performance I would give would be to make sure Mr. Kramer and Mrs. Reading coordinate the pronunciation of the character/place names; the one glaring example being the high prince Sadeas.
Unfortunately, now the waiting begins for the next volume. I have been so impressed with how prolific Brandon Sanderson has been, and have loved every one of his books so far. The next Stormlight Archive book is at the top of my "most anticipated" list. It actually moved above the "Wheel of Time" (ironic, isn't it?) and "The Kingkiller Chronicle"......Wow.

Speaking as Brandon's editor, thanks for the great review!
One small correction. When you wrote "The connection between Dalinar and Shallan is a blood connection – Shallan is Dalinar’s niece." you made the connection closer than it actually is. It's not Shallan who is Dalinar's niece but the woman she wants to be her teacher, Jasnah.
