Brandon posted Update 5 for Oathbringer (Stormlight 3) on Reddit. Obviously you shouldn't look at this thread if you haven't read Words of Radiance.

I gave in to the peer pressure and started " the way of kings" ,~50 pages in,so far so good. Even though i read all the GoT books in english ,I already encountered quite some words I don't knew and had to loook up. Sometimes you can guess them due to context or similiar words from otherlanguages. I will get through it anyways haha.

Edit: I forgot to ask: Will there be a explanation to what a spren is? If so you don't have to do it but I got a bit confused with them and what they do. In these few sites i read there were already a couple of different forms. Windspren,bloodspren,rotspren,
Rainspren?
My thought so far is that they are some kind of spirit created by the Stormlight energy.

Right now we're still learning what the spren are, but they all seem related to some sort of concept. They gravitate toward whatever that concept is, whether it be emotional or physical.

95% Hype. Also, Arcanum Unbounded is out. Panda already made a huge connection and I'm reading Edgedancer.

Finished Edgedancer. I have thoughts. Also read Khriss's notes in the rest of the book, and here's how I feel:

my random thing... for whatever reason, when desribing sazed, or maybe party the name, i don't know... but for some reason sazed to me is Argonian from elder scrolls
Image

i can't stop it either... i keep trying and it's not working... whenever sazed shows up, there's a giant lizard in the room, and because i've played elder scrolls, it's not weird to me in my head.

STORMFATHER!
So I thought I will give a little update of my impression so far. I'm done with ~ a thirth of "The way of Kings" (350sites of 1100)
I like how he has alot different "approaches" to things even thoguh a fantasy story in a rather mediveal isn't the newest thing. I like how he describes the people from different countries, the thayleen with their ridicolous eyebrows, the parshmen with marble skin and so on. The difference between Parshmen and Parshendi, the different take on the roles of Males and females (still don't get the thing with the safehand and the freehand) .
I like the mysterium about the Spren and all their forms and the gemstones as payment, alight with Stormlight.
The thing with the character Dalinar Kholin and his Visions whenever Highstorms are raging and the myths about Voidbringers coming in these Storm reminds me slightly of the Aether/Warp energy from the Warhammer 40k universe (the so called Chaos dimension)(Blood for the Bloodgod!) but not enough that I would call it a inspiration (which I would say is good)

Also I wwanted to ask if I should keep to the stormlight archive when I'm finished with this book or if I should read the first Mistborn?
