    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    I rarely write reviews, but I am compelled to help this book achieve even higher status. "The name of the Wind: Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 1" is astoundingly good. As many of the other reviewers have said, it does get off to a very slow start and Mr. Rothfuss seems obsessed with making sure we know and understand his worlds' currency system, but those are my only (and very minor) complaints. Once the book gets up to speed I dare you to stop listening for more than a day. Buy this book, you won't regret it!

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Tom says: "Excellent Story, Distracting Sound Engineering"
    "Grumpy "wizard" and BAD narration"
    Overall

    I've never written a review before but I am compelled to write one here since this book is so well rated...


    The first thing you'll notice in this audiobook is obviously the narration. For this one aspect alone I would have never bought this book. Mr. Marsters has three settings, "talk in a gravelly monotone", "make a random disgusting mouth/saliva noise" and "sigh heavily into the mic". If you're used to amazing narration like that found in the "Wheel of Time", you should click back on your browser now.


    **Granted I listened to this book with earbuds. The disgusting sounds and sighing may scale down through speakers**


    Secondly, the story line is decent but this is more detective mystery than sci-fantasy. If you're looking for cool wizard stuff from a hero who can give it as well as he takes it, look elsewhere. The hero is a grumpy crotchety man who gets beat up a lot. Not my style.
