Sanderson, Brandon (Calamity)

For some reason, I didn't really care much about this final installment in the Reckoners trilogy. For some reason, where the characters were going and why they were going in particular directions wasn't enough to keep my interest. For some reason, the conclusion seemed foregone, like too much had been revealed already in the previous two books, so we aren't left to wonder about anything.

Maybe there weren't as many silly metaphors in this one. Or maybe the romance wasn't intriguing any longer. Or maybe the Professor's story arc was boring, because why should we care about him, again? The conclusion was both teenage cute and moralistic, as expected. But, I'd rather get the next installment of Stormlight Archive instead. He's doing far more interesting things in that series.
