I thought the opposite about Obelisk Gate, actually! I thought it was much more sympathetic to Essun, whereas Nassun is shaping up to be a little sociopath. (Maybe because of who the narrator was?) I also had a easier time with the second because in the Fifth Season, everything was SO bleak (well, it's all bleak) but also I couldn't get any feel for the world. I think it was because the protagonists are so set apart from all the rest of society, so you only get the briefest glimpse what life is like (mostly before places are destroyed). With Obelisk Gate, because they're settling into the comm, I guess it felt a bit more personal?

A friend has just recced me Too Like the Lightning, so we'll see if I pick it up. I have a lot on the to-read shelf.
