Kvothe's chronicles of his life in the university is some of the coolest and funniest fiction writing I've ever seen. And apart from his relationship with Denna, Kvothe is extremely relatable and fun to read.
The name of the wind is kind of like a mix between Sword of Truth, Harry Potter, and A Song of Ice and fire.
Harry Potter because it chronicles the hero's school life for much of the book.
Sword of Truth because it follows a very small cast of characters, and almost completely ignores everybody else.
A song of ice and fire because it uses a completely unique world, with its own geography, theology and physics.
Probably, though grudgingly so. The incredible awkward way in which the narrator performs "special accents" throughout the book lead me to miss very important parts of the dialogue, and his use of lifelike use of autistic sounds made me cringe and seriously consider ditching the book mid-read.
"The life of the greatest Arcanist to walk the four corners of civilization"
