One of the best, It's kind of in it's own league. Happier than most the books I listen too. I felt like I was actually allowed to fall in love with the characters, and the story. I wasn't constantly afraid they were going to die horribly.
Simon. Gotta love the happless rich guy trying to hit on every bar wench. Arguably he was more funny than Kvothe, who just exudes broken soul.
Nope, no experience here.
The Silence of Three Parts, really sets the tone.
If you're looking for a good book, go no further.
The narrator was engaging, and he made it very easy to distinguish between the characters. I was never left confused about who was "talking". Mr. Podehl reads with an excellent rhythm, not too slow, not too fast, which holds attention and entertains.
Mr. Rothfuss always left me wondering what could happen next. The dialogue was quite clever.
Kvothe was an interesting character; however, he seemed almost too perfect. He could do nothing wrong. Even his mistakes ended in his benefit.
I did not read the print version, but this story is soooo, so very, very good that I can imagine the print would be a page-turner. I could not get enough! Nick Podehl is a skilled narrator, bringing the story and characters to life - you want to LIVE in this book.
In it's epic-ness, I compare this book/series to the "Song of Ice and Fire" (Game of Thrones) series in that there are well-developed characters, the action spans over time and across many lands, there are intriguing nuances that appear and reappear connecting the story in intelligent and curious ways... It is a scintillating tale that keeps the reader's mind engaged throughout!
I laughed a lot, I empathized quite a lot as well. My most extreme reaction is that I just LOVE the book, and the sequel, and am all too eagerly awaiting the release of the third. It's the first time I've ever felt so put out that a book was not at my avail. It's been hard to find a book to listen to following this one. It leaves me wanting more...
Get it. Read it. Listen to it. Listen and read it again. You will enjoy it all the way through.
Storytelling done right.
All of them. He brings personality and uniqueness to each character.
In a world where 7 words will make any woman fall in love with you...
I love how the author brings this rich fantasy world to life while still making you believe it could all be real.
Go read the book. Go do it. Now.
Side note: Nick Podehl performed as if speaking the name of the book itself. Perfect. (Minus early pronunciations of Kvothe LOL)
One of the most epic adventures I've ever read. I will always love this series. I believe I will still be reading these in 50yrs. Just so you know, incase you ever read this, you write books for me too.
The perfect Kvothe. Absolutely perfect. He does a great job as all other characters. You can really see his voice coming out of them in your mind.
always hard to stop listening. Sometimes I even fall asleep with is playing. #sorrynotsorry
