I love reading his stuff with the annotations.It's written so that there are no spoilers in the annotations past the chapter it's written for. That said, I think they are far more enjoyable to read in a second readthrough. You learn some really cool stuff with them.

You know, Sanderson is one of the few authors I can think of off the top of my head where it is almost more enjoyable to read his books the second time rather then the first. While I loved all of his stuff the first time, I just re-read Way of Kings, and the incredible amount of foreshadowing he throws in throughout the entire book is amazing. And for all that everyone says that Way of Kings is mainly world building, the climax of that book is utterly fantastic.

Man, that was a great read. I was really sad when it was over. I think that's some of his best writing yet.

Just finished the book. Wow! I read it all in one go and couldn't put it down. Well done, Sanderson!

Same here actually. I really enjoyed it, and I can't believe I didn't catch the big twist ahead of time. It's really quite simple looking back at it.
