Incredibly intriguing and engaging, both the narration and the plots won't disappoint. Can't wait for the next one !!! \
The entire world. All the characters. Our hero! I love the way the author has made ALL of the characters special, usually the only girl of interest in the book is the one the hero falls in love with, in this book all of the are fascinating. He doesn't only have one friend but a bunch of them, and they are all well written characters. The author stays within the boundaries he has in his world, nothing in this book leaves me rolling my eyes thinking it doesn't make sense or that a character is acting out of character.
I love the time at the university, and all the moments with Elrond.
Kotve, of course! Bast is also awesome. (Forgive my spelling of names, it's one of the hazards of LISTENING to a book!)
This was a long book to listen to in one sitting, but I did manage it over 3 days.
Our hero! It pains me to wait for the final book to be released, and at the same time I am dreading this end of this magical world!
I've read the book twice before I bought this version. This was my first experience with audio book in English and I'm amazed. The quality for the recording, and Nick Podehl's performance is great!
Sure I would recommend it. The story is amazing and the recording is fantastic!
I like Nick's creation of accents! It gave me a more deep perspective of the environment where the story passes.
No one has ever made a giant flashback interesting until Rothfuss..this makes Camus' The Fall look clumsy and wooden...o it was! Well leave it to Rothfuss. If he can make a giant flashback work next Book is a one-sided conversation on existentialism lol...
When the protagonist turned out to be such a wimp and got pounded in his own Inn by a couple of soldiers...what was Rothfuss thinking? Don't go all G.Martin on us cause you kill off the protag in this one... end of flashback!
The fact that his performance was so seamless that I never thought about him once!
When you give up sleep three nights I guess that means you like the book?
I have long had a sneaking suspicion that he drinks his advances and then takes up writing only when completely broke thus the exorbitant times between books...someone get him a Dragon SRS so he can get all Steven King, unedited, stream of consciousness on us.
I love a good story, especially one with a bit of a dark side.
This is seriously one of the best stories out there. I could sit around a fire on a never ending night and listen to Kvothe tell his story for days. I can't wait for the next book, and hope that after his life is told, and written, his legend will continue with his future.
I have an english degree from the University of Wisconsin River-Falls (UWRF). I read, write, and listen to stories daily.
This book is impossible to review properly. Instead I'll say that this book makes my top five along with East of Eden, David Copperfield, Kidnapped, and Name of the Wind. Nick Podehl does a nice job, but occasionally mispronounces a name.
This series is so fun and funny at times.We're listening to Games of Thrones, but we find the this series to be so much more interesting and creative. Lighter too. The Author does an excellent job with the many many characters, but the listeners don't get confused.
I have yet to write my review of the first of these two books, but I will soon. This second book is just as good as the first only extended. In fact I was quite surprised to find out that it is about twice to three times longer than the first. Despite that though, it is a marvelous read and really holds your attention. Am going to have to research as I'm sure there is more coming just likely not published yet? Am eager to find out what happens to young Kvothe and his Denna and even Bast and Chronicller. Loved the character Tempe as well. :) A must read!
This tale snares you in the beginning and just won't let you go.
This series is now in my top two for favorite listens, only possibly edged out by Jordans wheel of time, but that may change with the coming of book three.
