    I think she's the perfect voice for Rothfuss. He shot his entire load before book 1 ended so the girl writing Barbie, The Little Princess, and unused portions of Pacific Rim sounds about right with the talent writing the books.

    So I was looking last night, both Kingkiller 2 and the most recent Game of Thrones book came out in 2011. Since then Sanderson has released ~13 books (a few more or less depending on what you count).

    I wish I could just forget this guy existed, and I really hate that they gave him tv/movie/game deals. Fuck him, finish your book (that he has said will not come out this year).

    This nerd is trying to figure out how to fill 650 pages of sex fantasy with mermaids and unicorns with 50 pages of locker room talk, and can't even pull that off in 6 years. He needs to just steal scripts from Silk Stalkings or Red Shoe Diaries and call it a day.

    Rothfuss is all like "If Martin can have his books adapted before they are even finished, SO CAN I!"

    Stop twitching and get back to writing you fat lazy fuck.

    Fuck this guy. I loved the first one. Second one was ok. I refuse to read anything else this shithead puts out (If ever). All he has now are excuses.

    I don't even remember the first 2 books anymore tbh, and I'm with you in that I find it unlikely I'll bothering reading anything else he does until the eventual third book someday

    Apparently he accidentally leaked a page while on twitch which also showed a folder which indicated that he didn't update the folder for two years. Someone screenshoted and distributed it and apparently he went into full meltdown and compared it to rape.

    What a tool

    And if it's true that he didn't work on it for two years that book is never coming out

    It makes me sad that he got movie and game deals etc. He doesn't deserve it, he's a supreme shithead

    If what i heard is correct, he was working on book 3 while streaming and didn't realize he was streaming word. Apparently the file hadn't been worked on in over a month (not 2 years) but since it was word, they guessed the book would have something like 427 pages due to word count, etc. and as far as spoilers go, it was nothing earth shattering. Not sure if what i posted is accurate either since it's third hand from a RL friend and i haven't seen the screen shot. But he is definitely a tool.

    Apparently he has a long history of being kind of cunty to his fans. The sad part is he's a pretty average writer imo, compared to a lot of other names who are putting out books at a consistent pace. #1 was a solid-but-not-mindblowing fantasy book, the setting and magic system were kinda cool, but it had a terrible ending, a cringe-worthy romance subplot and a ton of derivative elements. And then #2 came out and went into full retarded territory more than once with the wish fulfillment bullshit (fairy milf, insta-kungfu master, etc). Kinda bums me out that this seems to be what they want to push as the "now you're done with Game of Thrones, read this!" series.

    His actual writing though is amazing. Its ridiculously readable. Like a melange of story telling and almost poetry level prose. You just of kind glide from page to page effortlessly when reading it so much you don't notice or mind the shitty plot things or the Harry Potter-ish undertones. I think he can craft sentences at least as well as Gaiman.

    I've tried to read the first two books again and I find myself skipping over any part involving Denna.

    Just no. It is actually painful to read those parts. The homecoming queen obviously didn't give this dude enough attention in high school.
