I don't generally read much fiction, but I loved this book and the Name of the Wind by Rothfuss. I think I like the downtrodden youth rises to greatness genre(my favorite character in this book was the spear guy).

Does anybody know of any similar novels? I'd love some recommendations, thanks.

The Warded Man by Peter V Brett is pretty good and along those lines. It has a fairly typical fantasy with a somewhat unique magic system based around runes. I haven't read the sequel, but people tell me its good. I think of the book as Wheel of Time-lite.

I read that earlier this year and got partways through that before I gave up, just got really bored with it. The whole book basically revolved around one character, which is fine, but I couldn't bring myself to care about him at all. Maybe it's the writing style, but it just put me off.

I must have really skimmed this book first time through. what is that and how does it differ from surgebinding?

There was some witch who would grant you a wish in exchange to taking something of yours in return. The wish is almost never what you actually wanted but what she takes usually isn't crippling either. At some point in the past Dalinar made a wish and lost his memory of his wife. If I had to speculate, I'd say he probably wished for his brother back.

It didn't go into much detail beyond that.

Man I regret reading that Legion excerpt when we probably won't get a sequel for a year or more.
