  • Anywho, probably more will come from this book. I can't wait to hear the next chapter! Everyone should read this book! "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss. You can find him here on DA too

    COMPLETE AND UNABRIDGED EDITION 'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title. Read by Rupert Degas (p) 2012 Orion Publishing Group

  • Oh, The Name of the Wind. Nearly universally praised, my copy came to me via one of my favorite microaggression stories to tell. (Moral of the story: don’t randomly tell people you hated a book because the protagonist was gay—you will run into a queer woman eventually.) With the release of its sequel, The Wise Man’s Fear, in March, the book blogosphere has been overflowing with praise for Patrick Rothfuss. While my copy languished on my shelves for the better part of ten months, I did finally get around it—after I’d built up a substantial buffer, eying its seven hundred plus pages warily. But I needn’t have bothered; I tore through this marvelous piece of work in a handful of days.

    While Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind does borrow heavily from most fantasy stories, it is also very different. There isn’t much adventure in this book. Plenty of legend and world building, a ton of character driven stories, and a lot of characters to keep track of, but precious little adventure. You can tell that the author is building things up to it (introducing the ancient evils, etc) but it doesn’t get there in this book.

    The Name of the Wind starts when Devan Lochees, known as the Chronicler, finally tracks down the man known as Kvothe—Kvothe the Bloodless, Kvothe the Arcane, and Kvothe Kingkiller—in a small town called Newarre, where Kvothe is lying low as an innkeeper with his protégé, Bast. As dark forces make themselves known even in this remote part of the world, Kvothe agrees to tell Chronicler his story over three days. On the first day contained in The Name of the Wind, Kvothe tells Chronicler of his childhood among traveling actors, his years living on the streets, and his training at the University at an age most boys only dream of it. Through sheer wit and pluck, Kvothe puts himself on the track to making a name for himself—and what a name it will be.

Like George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones, another fantasy series of books that sat idle for years before generating Hollywood interest, The Name of the Wind has been around for nearly a decade. The book was published by DAW in March 2007 and spawned a second book, The Wise Man's Fear, in 2011. A third book, tentatively titled The Doors of Stone, is expected in 2016, and likely sparked the renewed interest in The Kingkiller Chronicle. The fact that the series is seen as having enormous franchise potential has the stoked the frenzy.
