I love the book good story I can't wait to get my hands on the 3rd book. I have read these books 3 times working on the 4th time and every time I read them I get for out of them that I missed. Good work man
I made it more than half way through this book. I'm disappointed, this is very highly reviewed. To me it just read like a 16 year old boy’s fantasy life. Super cocky and talented boy has a hard life and scrapes by to become the most awesome hero of all time along with getting the “perfect” girl. The made up words and languages just seemed clunky and obviously fake. Yes they are made up, but some authors manage to make you feel like they are real. The language and mannerisms of the characters was so 21st century. It felt very flat and forced to me. I had to stop listening when he started perusing the girl. That in particular felt the most like an adolescent fantasy.
I reread / relisten to this book every few months and it's always as magical as if I were exploring it for the first time. Rothfuss has woven together a stunningly lavish world that is easy to fall into and terribly hard to leave. Do yourself a favor.
Reviews were great and I wanted a longer story for a credit so I gave it a shot. Not worth it. Not nearly enough interesting things happen for a 27 hour book. Too many fantasy stereotypes, too many fails of logic.
A boy's life story entertwined with fantastical embellishments. This is the book I reread over and over again. Anxiously awaiting book 3 that my favorite character may have closure in his adventurous life.
