I believe this, I just couldn't get there. There wasn't enough connection for me to buy into this style to begin with. I have a lot of patience for disjointed, disparate lines of thought that make sense in the end (that honestly describes half of philosophy - the other half is the same but absent the sense at the end) but Way of Kings exceeded my not-inconsiderable thresholds. It was frustrating in the extreme and it ultimately made me work way too hard for not enough pay-off in something I'm reading for pleasure. YMMV Yeah, but there's quite a difference between "haven't read it" and "found it so frustrating to read that I couldn't finish it"
