    Story
    (330)

    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."

    What did you love best about The Name of the Wind?

    It took a little bit to get going but once it did I couldn't stop listening. Really really good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kvothe - however every character introduced has been every bit as interesting and entertaining


    Have you listened to any of Rupert Degas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time but not the last, he is fantastic and has bought all the characters to life so perfectly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It does all the things that tell you it's a great story - it moves you, you laugh, you get frustrated and cheer when things go right


    Any additional comments?

    A really entertaining audiobook

    Sequel to the extraordinary The Name of The Wind, The Wise Man’s Fear is the second instalment of this superb fantasy trilogy from Patrick Rothfuss. This is the most exciting fantasy series since George R. R. Martin's A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, and a must for all fans of HBO's GAME OF THRONES.

    Thorz says: "Part two of the masterpiece"
    "Just gets better"

    Where does The Wise Man's Fear (Part One) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This whole series so far has been my favorite? It's addictive.


    What other book might you compare The Wise Man's Fear (Part One) to and why?

    Robert Jordan or Raymond E Feist is how I compare this series. The story and characters are never boring and every chapter has a new twist, turn or surprise.


    What about Rupert Degas’s performance did you like?

    He brings every character to life in your mind and his accents are so clever. His voice and tone are easy to listen to and in over 60 hrs of listening to him I've never wanted to switch him off.


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

    I laughed many times and felt exasperated at others when things didn't go the way you wanted for the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this author and narrated.
