This has definately become one of my favourite sagas, and is beautifully read by Rupert Degas. Highly recommend these imaginative, adventurous books, and I can't wait for the next installment.
As you find more and more about the chandrian, Kvothe's progress in the school and the secrets of the university you only want more more more.
The reader is truly excellent. I read book two (rather than listenning to it) and it was simply not as good. The plot is original. I was entranced. hard to put down is the only problem.
Now i'm hanging out for book 3 (day 3) which appears is not yet written - gutted when i realised this.
The Name of the wind and Wise mans fear are simply my favourite Audiobooks. The story is great and I just need to find out what is happening next. Hurry up with the next one. Please. Please please.
Rothfuss has a refreshing take on the classic Fantasy epic. A Really good listen!
He brings the characters to life in a great way
Quite humorous at times!
I haven't read the print version
Tempe has to be one of the most solid secondary characters so far -
A wonderful array of character voices.
The Fairy seer creature in the tree was wonderfully creepy!!
I began the book in a cynical frame of mind, as I recgnized the now familiar trend in fantasy fiction to drag out a story with meaningless meanderings,and thereby reduce the picture frame to a blotch of too many characters and no dimensions. I am afraid I was right. The landscape while beautifully afixed, has too many flitting two dimensional charcters who do not develop depth and personality,much in the sad tradition of George RR Martin. It is a crowded tale that does not bring anticipation for the future of the main character.Qvoth is a classic narcissist who manipulates all circumstances to suit himself and does not inspire my sympathy. His relationships appear to only serve his ego.
Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny.
The narrator did a splendid job given the matter.
I think Patrick Rothfuss need not trouble himself to continue this series as it is evident the story has nowhere further to go.
This whole series so far has been my favorite? It's addictive.
Robert Jordan or Raymond E Feist is how I compare this series. The story and characters are never boring and every chapter has a new twist, turn or surprise.
He brings every character to life in your mind and his accents are so clever. His voice and tone are easy to listen to and in over 60 hrs of listening to him I've never wanted to switch him off.
I laughed many times and felt exasperated at others when things didn't go the way you wanted for the characters.
Highly recommend this author and narrated.
Book 2 of the kingkiller chronicles ends up being better than the first book in most parts. Here Kvothe is shown kind of "growing up" and and metaphorically speaking "getting his karate lessons".
There are some great original quotes in the book, which relate to the title of the book.
However, I still want to strangle Denna as she adds little to the story beyond a certain amount.
People who've listened to the first book can see more action here in more ways than one. This book isn't PG13 so be careful.
He gets the characters, just perfect.
If you love a great adventure and really amazing story, then this book is for you.
