Jeff Jarvis is an advocate for publicness. In this work he does a great job of discussing the ideas of publicness and privateness. Jarvis has convinced me to be more public in my classroom.
I just finished listening to this audiobook. I enjoyed the plot and the story. The one thing I would change is the graphical sex between demons/humans/demi-gods.
At times I was feeling this book along the lines of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files or Ilona Andrews Magic Bites series.
I enjoyed the multiple voices and the mood she was able to create with her voice.
Yes. Not with my kids, but yes.
Magic is fueled by sex. I think this is a nice twist on things, but it was so graphic at times I found myself constantly stopping so my kids would not hear.
While this novel does take a long time to listen to, I would definitely listen to this again. The story seems to be a simple one: a tavern keeper and his servant tend bar in a tiny town. As the plot unfolds and you realize Kvoth is hiding. The desire to understand why kept me glued to my ipod. I could not wait and immediately bought the second book when I finished the first. I plan on listening to all the books again in order when the third book comes out.
As I listened to Name of the Wind, I could not help but think of Jim Butcher's books. At times I saw Kvoth as Dresden or Tavi from the Codex Alera series. I enjoyed the flashbacks to fill in information. As the entire book is really Kvoth retelling his early life, the juxtaposition between what he is doing and his early life really moved the mystery along. I spent about five extra hours total sitting in my car listening to the book instead of going inside.
I enjoyed the performance.
