i saved a drab colored lizard who thrashed desperately in your makeshift bird bath this morning, around eight. he was beneath your notice.
This is Day 1 of the Kingkiller chronicles, where Kvothe is dictating his life story to Devan Lochees, the Chronicler. In Audiobook format, the reading takes 27 hours. Either Kvothe talks considerably faster than the narrator, or Rothfuss has a much deeper sense of adventure than time.
And for me, that's indicative of what you can expect. Rothfuss doesn't mind taking a long path for these stories, but they are a rollicking good tale. This really does come across a Kvothe's memoirs, a series of almost discrete tales that show how his legend was building, doling out tidbits here and there to give it some sense of cohesion and movement that hopefully will pay off in the last book of the trilogy. Hopefully.
This story is fantastic. I've listened to it at least 3 times the only issue i have is the 3rd book isn't written yet for me to listen to. Can't wait to continue this adventure.
This is the best book I have read in quite some time. It's refreshing to see a story that has been properly thought out and the editing properly handled.
I'm not much for writing reviews so I'm just going to say it was a great book this was my second time reading it through. it seems to help you pick up a lot more the little hints and stuff of the upcoming story enjoy.
One of the easiest ways for me to explain how much I enjoyed this book is that, as soon as it ended I started over from the beginning. I rarely find the time to indulge myself with a book, so making the sacrifice of time for the same book twice is a great feat. I'm ready to start the sequel.
This is the first of what is expected to be three novels. The first and second novels have come out but as all of the complaints on the web point out, we are still waiting on the third novel. With that said, the author is exceptional. His writing style is very good and translates well into narrative readings. The reader in this case is exceptional and the same is true of the second novel. The story draws you in early and keeps you moving. The characters are interesting the plot is solid and believable --if any fantasy can be described as believable. The school section of this novel is interesting but is only intended to be the beginning of what will become journeys post graduation.i'm looking forward to the last portion of this trilogy? And there is a short novelette he has written that is a side story in this Fantasy world.
It's awesome & I would definitely recommend it! It's an awesome substitute for those of u that are waiting for the next Game of Thrones book!
Loved it, great audio, great story. It turned me, a realistic fiction reader, on my more adventurous day, into an avid listener. I was sucked so deeply into the story that I would have to remind myself at times when I had set it down to attend to my children, that it wasn't real. I found myself with the names echoing through my mind until I would tuck away again and listen to as much as I could get away with.
