A self-professed geek and proud of it, I started reading at a tender age and never really stopped until work got in the way for several years. I regained my voracious appetite for books a few years back and then started to enjoy writing down my thoughts. I am more of an emotional/instinctual rather than a critical reader.
Aside from reading, I enjoy outdoor sports (running, hiking, cycling, an occasional frisbee game), photography and travelling.
The Stormlight Archive is Brandon Sanderson's "love letter to the epic fantasy genre". His magnum opus. From my perspective, he had lovingly and painstakingly crafted a masterpiece that was not just his greatest but one of the greatest of all time.
I didn’t have any expectations when I picked this book up and was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable it was. At first glance, one might mistake this for young adult fantasy. Rest assured, it is not and neither does it have all the standard overused YA tropes which are prone to induce eye-rolling.
