Review: The Black Prism by Brent Weeks


Rating: (abandoned; never to return…?)
Date read: August 27 to October 04, 2013
Read count: Chapters 1 to 3

After more than a month of making very little progress, I think I’m done with this book and, to an extent, done with Brent Weeks.

Prejudices are hard to put aside when you know you don’t like what the author has previously written. With that said, this book isn’t as bad as I thought. It’s actually much better than The Way of Shadows. (That’s a compliment, btw.)

So I am marking this as “read” as a note to myself that I will not be returning to reread at a later time.

Even though I hated Weeks’ Nightangel series (that name will never not be hilarious), a friend suggested I should do away with prejudices and general distaste for Weeks’ writing and give this book a chance. You won’t regret it, he promised. I better not, was my response.
