It was at times disconcerting to have Patrick read both in Kvothe's voice and Denna's. A whimsical criticism but I would have loved a female voice to do her lines to do the budding relationship justice. Fantastic stuff all the same!
This is simply one of the best books I've read in years. Rothfuss has created something great. I haven't read a book from a single point of view in quite awhile and it was very refreshing. Kvothe's story draws you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat nearly the entire time. I've made it through book 2 as well and am anxiously awaiting the next one. The structure of the books is interesting in that, in my opinion, it feels like the three books are going to feel like one massive book instead of three distinct ones. The ending just kinda comes. It feels like you are supposed to keep reading.
If you have any interest in fantasy novels, you are sure to like this one.
The story kept me engaged and I wanted to know what happens next.
The main characters boldness to asking for what he wants and challenging the system to get to the truth of his journey.
Kvothe - the main character
When he stood his ground about being admitted to the university and when despite his punishment he is promoted.
For some reason, some of the chapters got cut off midway and the narration would jump to the next chapter.
I look forward to Day 2!
This is the book I always recommend to first time audiobook listeners. The reason is the style of the book; this book is mostly in the format of a man telling his story in a bar, ideal for an audiobook. Unlike some audio books, you never get lost with scene changes, long lists, or repetitive headers in emails.
Without giving away too much, I would have to say one of the most memorable moments was Kvothe's (main Character) musical debut at the Eolian (musical venue and bar).
Again, trying not to spoil anything, but my one of my favorite scenes would be when Kvothe is trying to impress Master Elodin, misreads the situation, throws himself off of a roof and sees the look of shock in Elodin's eyes.
“You may have heard of me.”
This is my favorite audiobook due to it's story/plot, "magic" based in physics (energy in = energy out with efficiency considerations), format of the book (main character telling a story), and it's potency (ability to impact my emotions even after multiple listens).
I love this book. The story is so captivating and the performance is amazing, bringing every word, every phrase to life. I've listened to this book twice now, and I'm taken in everytime. Definitely recommended.
this one of the best books my wife and I have listened to for a long while. we are eagerly awaiting the next one. I would recommend it to anyone who like sci-fi or epic books. I believe it will be one of the beater books written on our life time. Thank you Patrick .
author is very descriptive and you're never lost unless it's in the story itself. the reader is also very fitting keeps you interested the whole way through.
