Update Schedule

There was once an update schedule. It lived a good life, a peaceful life. A quiet life. But then... things began to change. It became more and more erratic, sometimes completely disobeying its very reason for existance. And at last, the update schedule could take no more. It cast off its chains and went free, seeking new lands where it would be appreciated. This message it left where once it had lived, to warn other schedules of the peril.

Review: Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell

Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dob is Hoid. Brandon Sanderson can't fool me. (Too long spent away from Hoid-hunting may have made me just slightly desperate.)
I'm not exactly certain how I ended up with the ebook, but I did, so I read it. The introduction made me pretty sure I wouldn't like it- no Hoid? Weird rules based on Judaism?- but I was pleasantly surprised. I do wish he'd left out the Judaism bit; his rules really had nothing to do with ours. Mostly it was laughable when you considered his source. But in general, this book was pretty good. It ended too happily, but all Brandon Sanderson books do. I'm not sure it added anything to the Cosmere, but considering it by itself it was fine. Very well-written, which was reassuring after Firefight.
A pleasant break from Varney. Very quick read.
