    "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...."

    "Amazing, chilling and funny"
    Overall

    The book was released March 1st. It wasn't up on audible yet so I went to a traditional book store and bought a copy.It is now 12:30 am on March 4th. I finished it 30 minutes ago, now audible has it up and I just bought a copy and am going to start it again tonight.

    I read a hundred books a year and I've never done anything like this before.

    Read the name of the wind, then read this. It's better in just about every way.

    In this heart-stopping installment of the Demon Cycle, humanity continues to struggle against the demon plague - even as survivors hold out hope that the Deliverer will save them all. On the night of the new moon, the demons rise in force, seeking the deaths of two men, both of whom have the potential to become the fabled Deliverer, the man prophesied to reunite the scattered remnants of humanity in a final push to destroy the demon corelings once and for all.

    Any additional comments?

    This book suffers from as being the middle book in an established series. There are several abrupt changes in a few characters personalities and world elements that depart from the first two books (Inevera, how wards work, types of demons) . I anticipate though that this means Mr. Weeks has figured out the end and that these changes will improve the final two books in the series which I look forward to reading.
    If you enjoyed the first two books then you will enjoy this book. Mr. Weeks again does a great job showing a character's history and it's influence on the characters actions. Even if he only applies the consistency to some of the characters.

    An author whose previous, wildly successful novels have earned him a reputation as fantasy's master of magic, Brandon Sanderson continues to dazzle audiences with this tale of princesses and gods. In this extraordinary world, those who attain glory return as gods. And those who can master the essence known as breath can perform the most wondrous miracles - or unleash the most devastating havoc.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Brandon Sanderson? Why or why not?

    I've read the rest of his books, this is probably the worst of his books but still decent.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I would have preferred the narrator for the mistborn books. Some of the intonations were just off and not very good.

    Joyce’s experimental masterpiece set a new standard for modernist fiction, pushing the English language past all previous thresholds in its quest to capture a day in the life of an Everyman in turn-of-the-century Dublin. Obliquely borrowing characters and situations from Homer’s Odyssey, Joyce takes us on an internal odyssey along the current of thoughts, impressions, and experiences that make up the adventure of living an average day.

    A fantastic novel and at times the narration is perfect. The last two chapters especially are great. Unfortunately the lack of indication when a chapter starts is a serious drawback. Lee does a great job bringing out the accents and Dubliness of this book though.
