Loved it, some repeating ways of obscuring plot devices that annoy, but well worth reading. Now looking forward to the next king killer book to be written and released.
This is a thoroughly engrossing and enjoyable tale. Though not as quickly paced as the first book, this is a wonderful addition to the series. For fans of the first, this book will answer some of the questions that linger from book one, while asking a series of new questions that will have to be answered in the final installment. I eagerly await the next chapter in this magnificent trilogy and look forward to joining Kvothe on his final journey.
The first book had no plot or climax. This book wasn't as boring but it was still painful. The constant first person talk is horrible. The person telling a story about a person telling a story about a person telling a story about another person telling a story was irritating. The constant talk about sex was painful. The worst part was that it was yet another book that doesn't stand alone. I won't be reading the 3rd book but I feel bad for those that do. This guy knows how to tell stories but he doesn't seem to know how to write a book. I suggest he read Mistborn for a clue.
Book one and two are awesome and Nicks voice is perfect for Kvothe. Just wish the third book would come out sometime soon, though in all honesty I could start book one again right now haha.
I loved it! I think that this epic should be categorized as a classic, if it is not already! I have listened to all of the kingkiller stories so far, each more than once, and find each time to be a joy. I have difficulty waiting for the next one. If you enjoyed Tolkien, DragonLance novels, Rowling's Harry Potter, and other such works, you will want to add Rothfuss to your collection!
This is my favorite book of all time! If you read the name of the wind you will enjoy this book even better! Such an addicting story i could not stop listening. The voice actor is remarkable and probably the best I've heard on this app. Remember how mom used to read to you? He does all the voices of everyone differently (this is incredibly impressive) and it's so easy to become immersed in this world. This is what fantasy novels brings to the table. A world before technology rules where men seek mysterious wonders of the world. Real adventure and wisdom that'll perhaps help you discover adventure and take action in your own life. PLEASE GET THIS TRUST ME YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
A masterful sequel to the name of the wind, this book delivers everything promised in the first and continues an incredible hunger for the rest of the tail.
The long wait during his journey had me eager to rejoin old companions left at the University. I have a larger hunger to know where those companions have gone when we finally reach the present day for the final time. It is a wonderful thing to care about all the characters so very deeply not just the lead. Well done and thank you for world and characters worth knowing
