    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.

    Overall

    I'd just like to say that I don't work for DAW or Brilliance Audio, either..
    That being said, Patrick Rothfuss is an amazing writer. I read this book on a whim, picking it up one day on the recommendation of someone in the bookstore, and found it to be one of the most amazing pieces of prose I've ever read. The narration is quite well done, bringing the character of Kvothe to life quite well. I'm not sure that the gentleman who gave the book a bad review quite understood what was going on in the book; it's the life story of a man not yet thirty as told to a scribe in the common room of a inn. It doesn't have the in-depth worldbuilding of a Jordan or a Martin, but it's up there in terms of storytelling and character development.
