    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. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.

    William says: "Amazing. I want you to listen to this."
    "terrific, captivating, and other great words"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Name of the Wind in three words, what would they be?

    intelligent, humble, grand


    What did you like best about this story?

    the unassuming nature of the intro and believably intensifying progression


    Which scene was your favorite?

    i think it would have to be when kvothe demonstrates sympathy for class, from memory about 12 hours in


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    it did actually make me cry twice, which is the first book ive ever read or listened to to do so, and there a couple of chuckles in it as well, nothing to truly laugh you dry, but i don't think thats what they were aiming for anyway


    Any additional comments?

    the narration is some of the best iv'e ever heard, with the narrator really getting into the characters and shamelessly going along with the book. Be warned though as when a character shouts, he shouts, so just be wary if your keen on super loud listening, your ears will bleed. !!!!!SPOILERish!!!!! I also really like how you know straight up that the protagonist is telling his story, so patrick rothfuss never tries any cheap tricks that kvothe's life might actually be in danger which would insult your intelligence, but even with this moderate handicap he still makes you feel a great deal of suspence when it suits him
