    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Story

    I loved this book from the beginning all the way until the Sex Faery. But I thought I could push on past the stupid SEX FAERY part, seriously a sex faery. Little did I know that was only the hors d'oeuvres of the crap feast. The culture of the mercenaries was so terrible it was laughable. I listened in complete shock as all the fine writing and beautiful storytelling of the last many hours went down the drain never to return. Rothfuss has lost all my trust.

    I wish audible would refund my credit on this one, but for some reason they wouldn't. Boo.

    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Story

    The actual plot itself is an amazing story, five stars, but every moment that is not about the plot is about this person or that person's obsession with sex. It's insane. It's all anyone in the world seems to care about, talk about, think about -- ten times worse than any teenage boy.

    I'm not saying the story is rife with sexual content, it isn't. It's just all anyone ever talks about in the book, I mean, get a life, people. Maybe sex is supposed to be a theme in the book or something, but if so, it came across like an anvil dropped on the head. I hope the author manages to diversify the characters' interests and obsessions for book 2.

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Its a shame that you can't go to the beginnings of chapters because the track markers seem to be at random places in the middle of sentences and in middle of chapters.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    They go through all the material so fast I just wish they could have covered more of what is in the book. It would be nice to have more examples and clarification. Somehow I didn't realize the book was abridged until I finished it. I just wish there was an unabridged version available.
