  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


This was definitely more enjoyable the second time around, for a couple of reasons I think. First, I wasn’t as hung up emotionally about the cast from the first trilogy as I was the first time around. Second, instead of viewing this as a “western” (which I kind of loathe) I just framed it as a high fantasy set in the wild west—which, I mean, it *IS*. So I was able to really appreciate the incredible world building and magic system that Sanderson created for what they are: INCREDIBLE. Also, I forgot how freaking funny Wayne is. That dude CRACKS ME UP!
