This is a great follow on to The Name of the Wind. The books seems to get a bit stuck in a few of the adventures but I am totally engaged in the story and anxious for the next book in the series.
Yes! The story captures your attention immediately and the narration is great!
Once you start listening to it, it is hard to stop. It kept me awake until crazy hours in the night.
Yes, The name of the wind. The narration is great in both books.
I am looking forward to Day 3 narrated by the same Nick Podehl.
Dark Tower, Sword of Truth & Wheel of Time ..done!.. Patrick Rothfuss is the new master and Brandon Sanderson is a god! I have 3 cats.
Patrick Rothfuss uses language that infuses the mind with imagery that is rich in detail. The Wise Man's Fear is template breaking Fantasy from the genres new master.
It's not often when you find extraordinary writing with extraordinary narration. While the book is long I was still disappointed for it to end. I just wish the next book was available.
I will read every thing Patrick writes. He came out of the chute bucking on the back of a
horse that has never been rode...and he's a champion in his first rodeo... Go Patrick and don't look back".......Paul T.
Disciple of the written word and Audible fanatic. I am an Urban and Epic Fantasy Fan. I also enjoy some Paranormal Romance.
Over and over this is that good
Every character is so well written and so realistic.
No this is my first but I really enjoyed it
Why would a Hero hide behind the guise of a bumbling innkeeper? What does he fear?
Read this series it is a must add!
The story is wonderfully detailed, nuanced, and I'm sure the book is an incredible page-turner. But I have to give my biggest kudos to Nick Podehl, who managed to bring so many different and diverse characters to life. He gives a unique voice to each different ethnic group, age group, gender, and species. As far as I'm concerned, Nick Podehl is the Mel Blanc of audiobooks.
Well worth my credits. It is a long story, so be prepared. I love this world Patrick Rothfuss, can't wait for book three, in 99 years.
I will keep this short and write a more complete review at the end of the series, but I have to jump in and say WOW, what a fantastic couple of books so far! Incredible story, enjoyable characters, edge of your seat-nail biting parts and parts that truly made me laugh out loud. I had no idea what to expect, and I have a hard time breaking in a new series by a new author, but this just grabbed me and didn't let go! I wish I had extra thumbs so I could give it more than just two thumbs up.
Also, I can honestly say that out of my entire collection of audiobooks, Nick Podehl does the best job narrating, dare I say PERFORMING these books! I have not heard talent like this since Robert Inglis reading the Tolkien series. Not only are the voices and accents he picks for the characters clear and distinctive, he matches them perfectly to the characters, and has almost as many different voices an Mel Blanc! The stories would stand out on their own, but Mr. Podehl has added a level of enjoyment to these books that I feel truly completes the whole experience. It saddens me that I am not articulate enough to properly express how brilliant this performance is.
If you are at all on the fence about this series, or if you just came across them, I give them my highest recommendation. You will truly enjoy this series!
