What an unusual book. Normally a book isn’t written from the first person, but this one was and that made it unique. In addition, the story-line is interesting, just not dynamic nor does the reader find themselves on the edge of their chair wanting to find out what comes next. But at the same time it is a good book, interesting and worth the read.
Thank you Patrick for a wonderful story. If it were a book in hand my fingers would surely be sore, for I hated every time I had to hit pause. I look forward to the next book which I'll be downloading right now.
I've re-read both books in this series at least twenty times. I've started a cult following amongst my friends and could probably start a church in the name of Patrick Rothfuss.
This book is fantastically well written, the feel of the words whether listening or reading gives a feeling intended to help readers, or listeners set a scene. He also does a fantastic job of foreshadowing things to come in later books that you may not catch the first time around, but make a second listen all that much more enjoyable!
Well Kvothe obviously, he is a daring character with a ton of wit, charm and good looks. However, as he is the books main character it would be tough for him not to be our favourite. So I will say Bast because the more you get to know about him the more intriguing he becomes and the more deep.
There is a point where Kvothe gives a bit of "Hot foot" to a smarmy professor. I absolutely love the depth of hate I feel towards the professor and the amount of satisfaction I feel when Kvothe deals out a bit of much deserved pain.
Always call a jack a jack, a spade a spade, but always call a whore a lady, she has been through enough.
This is a must read if you are a fantasy fan. All you Game of Thrones advocates who are losing your favourite characters one after the other. Look no further!
After an odd start this book teaches out and grasps you hard. It takes you to another world and follows the life of a hero exploring and explaining how he came to be where he is today... As a simple innkeeper.
My husband and I are truckers, so a captivating book is a must! This was true of this book for the both of us. We have gone on to the sequels and plan on continuing.
GREAT narration, which an audible book depends on, regardless of how good the plot or writing style.
The writer is awesome. His talent with words plays through the main characters own quick wit.
