While it took me about 8 chapters to finally get into the book, once I did I found it hard to put down. Great story line...I did find the ending lacking.
This audio book is fantastic, assuming you can make it through the painfully boring first 6 hours or so. I can understand why a few people gave this book a horrible review. If I hadn't pushed through those hours, I would have given it a horrible review too. However, after listening to the whole thing, it is an incredible book. I will be continuing the series.
This will join Lord of The Rings in the pantheon of fantasy series. Patrick Rothfuss creates a fantasy world that blends the mystical and archaic with the modern and enlightened, and provides us with a compelling protagonist in the form of a bright and curious boy who will one day become a legend.
Just a simple guy who likes to listen to books that keep me coming back for more.
Yes I would it has so much to offer, in the imagination of what a story can give. I enjoyed it very much and want more.
Kvote of coarse he knows things and messes with the writer.
I do not read well so when Nick Podehl is the narrator I listen to the book, he is clear and brings excitement to the story.
I think the title it has is what it should be. It brings interest to the tag.
Will there be another book to conclude this story?
The book starts out extremely slowly and the author uses some tired devices to tell the story, such as having the main character dictate his early history to a "chronicler". The story is engaging but as so many authors do, Rothfuss uses entirely too many words to get a single thought across. Since this is a series, it's understandable that we only learn part of the main character's history but it sure takes a long time to tell it. Perhaps it was the slow narration pace, but I might have enjoyed reading this book more than listening to it.
As to the narrator, Nick Podehl, I almost stopped listening early on and returned the book to Audible. Mr. Podehl does some great character voices throughout the book but he misses the mark for the older version of the main character, Qvoth. We're supposed to believe that this guy, who has faced many hardships and lived through many things, still sounds like his 12-14 year-old self? Not the best part of this performance.
