Almost everything, from the writing, the characters, the plot, and the narration was all great. But what I really liked was how personal this book felt. One of Little's best, that's for sure.
No I have not, but I will now.
This book was a lot of fun to read, despite it's bleakness. Bentley Little is, however, known for his sense of humor. Do not look for that here. This is a book that is dark, bleak, and full of despair as the Perry family loses control of their average, every day lives.
The story is about an innocent family haunted by their new house, but it reminded me of self-abuse spinning out of control, the unknown anger and angst of adolescence, the fear and desperation of a child stuck in a family haunted by its past and current abuses. This book is about what's not in your control, and how what's good and average can turn to bad and abnormal at any time.
This isn't a review so much as it is a recommendation. Get this book. The production, the narration, the story itself, is all well worth your credit!
What made me enjoy this story so much were many things. One was the characters. Kvothe and Denna and all the others were all so very real to me. Another was the story itself. The Name of the Wind is so thick with story upon story, you'd think you were reading a literary novel.
What made the audio version of this book so successful for me was the reader. Nick Podehl breathes life into all characters with all the passion of a trooper.
Get this book if you enjoy long, complicated, literary fantasy.
