    Oh for fuck's sake

    How long does she pretend to be a Horneater?

    Don't worry, the Shallan parts get worse.

    You shut up, she's clever. No, she may not say or do clever things. She may actually do the exact opposite and come off as a hateable cunt. But if every other character says she is ad nauseam, it must be true.

    She was doing really well until she met the caravan lady. Now I feel like it's going to be downhill for awhile.

    Just have a mouth-guard available for Shallan's chapters. They're not consistently bad but it when they are, the contrast is enraging. And pretty much everything else is fantastic.

    Also, when reading the book, Shallan was only a slight irritant. Some of it bugged me but overall her parts were more enjoyable then not. If you're listening to it, I'm not sure if it's her narrator or if it's Shallan vocalized but much of it is utterly insufferable.

    Because even Shallan is better than the Bobiverse and Skippy.

    I was totally okay with her until she met the caravan woman and I knew things were going to go down hill.

    The narrators are fine, but their fake-horneater accent is awful. That and the fact this turn of events adds hours of unnecessary shit has made me nope the fuck out.

    I wish I'd could slap some sense into BS. Could you imagine how great these books would be without the Shallan parts? But I'm sure a lot people, male and female, tell him how much they love her. Fucking air-sick low-landers.

    Nah, I just need to save it for some time when I'm not paying to much attention. As of right now it's frustrating to listen to it while walking.

    I believe work is the time you are looking for. At the start of an important meeting, "I'm going to throw on some Shallan audio."

    Whenever they mention the Stormfather, I think of Trump.

    The level of gayness has been acceptable so far?

    Creasy has a lower threshold than Rockpup.

    Addressing females as "brightness" is pretty goddamned gay, but I'm powering through it.

    I'm thinking Sanderson is a big Bonnie Tyler fan.
