This book has a lot more going on than the first book, but in a good way. Lots to keep you engaged!
It doesn't follow the stereotypical fantasy plot lines. It's different enough to be refreshing, but similar enough to common fantasy to leave you happy.
Every single one. Nick Podehl is amazing. I would by an audiobook knowing nothing else than the fact that he narrates. That said, you don't even need the "he said, she said" because Nick's tone and inflection changes masterfully for each character.
Oh that last chapter!!! I hope the third book comes out soon!
One of the best series I've read. I'm a huge SoFaI fan, and Rothfuss is filling a hole Martin has left me.
Well written sorry with vivid, relatable characters. The narrator is extremely diverse in the use of accents and brings the story alive.
This is the second book in the King Killer Chronicles. It is even better than the first book. A large world filled with places and people that feel real. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys epic story telling.
I've read this book and enjoyed it so much I go it again ad an audio book. I enjoyed is just a s much if not more the second time. at first I was unsure about the reader, he seemed young and I wasn't sure if he was any good. now that I've listened to both books I think he is perfect. the reader really captures just how young Kvoth is and makes it feel like you are sitting in the inn with him as he recites his story.
I have a confession to make. When I started this trilogy (with the name of the wind) I stopped listening after less than 5 minutes. Nick Podehls voice threw me off and I was sure I wouldn't enjoy this audio book, that I would jus stick to the book version. In my defense, I had just finished a string of books ready by Michael Kramer and John Lee- two VERY different voice types from Nick. But after a few evenings of reading I just HAD to continue this amazing story during my mid morning walks at work so I came back to the audio version and let me just say this: I'm sorry Nick, you give this series the richness it deserves in voices and acting.
As many reviewers have said, the story is amazing here. Nick Podehls acting makes it feel as if i'm listening to a movie even more. It's been a few years ( I think since i heard the Mistborn series for the first time) since i've been so engrossed in the characters of a book like this.
I already loved this book but the audiobook helped me love it even more. I think nick podehl does a great job at portraying all the different characters with all their different accents, and there are many many different languages in this book. The book is very long and made of many parts, I am holding reviewing it for when the trilogy is complete. I think I love it but I am not going to be sure until I know how it ends ;)
outstanding story although it gets drug out a bit more than it needs to be, seems looks they think the reader/listener is too dumb to understand some things, other than than it has kept me interested and even though I can predict what's going to happen it won't be the whole of it, looking forward to the 3rd day. thanks
