The Rhythm of Tedium
Reviewed in Australia on 24 November 2020
Book could have been much shorter. Too many characters (Kaladin, Shallan, and Navani) have repetitious chapters that repeatedly drill in the same details.
I understand Kaladins particular mindset on a personal level, and do see what the point was. However there are ways to present it without being boring.
That said there was a lot of interesting events in the book. I feel it was worth reading, if only for the hope that the next book will deliver a climax. However the notion of ever rereading this book makes me shudder.
