After listening to this book and its sequel, I had a good month before I could enjoy any other book. They all just seemed too bland in comparison.
Rothfuss' world and the characters inhabiting it are perfectly realised. Kvothe's troubles and triumphs will become yours. You'll want to spend time with his friends, because they're your friends too.
On top of that you have Rupert Degas' pitch perfect narration. Not only does he succeed in very good character separation – there is even subtle nuances as a character ages.
One of the best books I've ever read or listened to. Highly recommend it.
