I wouldn't be able to say, haven't looked at the print version, but the narration is excellent.
The journey, particularily his chase of romance. Kvothe is an excellent character
The PEEEEG Chapter was absolutely brilliant, showcasing podehl's talents, the rest was standard, but very solid.
Many, learning of kvothe's folly was one of my favorite parts!
Great book - However Rothfuss suffers from GRRMartin-ism. After a few years he is still unable to finish this trilogy. It is very frustrating to get invested in these novels with no end in sight.
This was a great listen. the way it was dictated and the odd spot in the story that it ends seemed fitting and didnt leave me disappointed with having to wait to buy the next.
The book really hits some slow parts and the book overall seems to be all exposition for future books. The beginning is terrible and should be skipped to the point where kvothe starts to tell his story. The majority of the problems stem from Kvothe's own decisions.
I got this book because it was on sale and I cannot believe I have never read this series! I can't wait to download the others and listen to them. So well narrated. Such a powerfully creative and believable story. Recommend without hesitation!!
A great book! The narrator's voice is not my favorite but just a personal preference. With that said, he doesn't do a bad job with the main character but leaves something to be lacking for any accents. There was one character I honestly could only understand maybe one word in three. Luckily he is only in one chapter. The plot makes it worth a listen though.
After reading this book 8 times, it was wonderful to have the voices for each character come to life through Nick Podehl's voice.
Patrick Rothfuss is my favorite author of all time. Hands down. His story of Kvothe is not only epic fantasy, but also extremely relatable. After reading it several times and listening to the audio book version of it, I can honestly say that I have not yet been able to get through this book without weeping through the heart-wrenching dark parts, sitting on the edge of my chair during crucial moments, and laughing out loud at some of the small, amazing, beautifully subtle jokes that he makes between characters. I can't wait for the third book. Seriously, go buy and read this book or buy and listen to the audio book. You won't be disappointed.
Nick Podehl is a magnificent voice actor. I loved how his voice fit for Kvothe's character. Although, I must admit, I heard him having a slightly lower baritone while I was reading it. I loved how seemlessly Podehl was able to capture not only the voice, but the essence of each character as well. I will definitely be looking for more audio books read by him.
Thank you, Patrick and Nick, for your countless hours of entertainment, and for bringing this story to life!
Always good to see good fantasy novels, and Patrick Rothface delivers in spades. The magic is wonderfully interesting and the world while mostly a mystery in this novel is diverse and unique. Definitely a must read.
