Publisher's Summary

Part Two of The Name of The Wind (Unabridged).

'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'.

So begins the tale of Kvothe - now an unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. With his reputation at the university and the Eolian growing by the day, Kvothe's story takes him to Trebon and his legendary encounter with a dragon.

    "Delighted this book was split in 2 parts :)"

    I was, for the first ever time, really really pleased that what was published as a single book was split into 2 parts in Audio. Simple reason was I thought I had finished book one and only had 1 more book to go - only to find I actually had 3, was a great moment :) Cant rave enough about this series, the story, the Narration, the luxurious length. Completely engrossed and I cant image what on earth will fill the hole this will leave in my listening schedule. Would have to say that the Narration is without doubt the best I have ever heard, brings this story to life so well.

    Story
    "Exciting epic fantasy filled with mystery and more"
    What made the experience of listening to The Name of the Wind (Part Two) the most enjoyable?

    I couldn't stop listening to this book! I had to get my dear mother to buy it with an audible credit and send it me as a gift cause I couldn't wait to hear what happens next. By the end of part one I was hooked.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are so many well written characters in this book, but I think the ones I find most appealing are the ones contained within the lore and mythos of these books. The Name of the Wind is a story about a story, which contains other stories to make the world seem rich and immersive, so I found the characters like Tehlu and Ecannis the most intriguing.


    Which character – as performed by Rupert Degas – was your favourite?

    Again Rupert Degas does such a good job at performing a vast variety of characters and is able to give them a each there own identity that even from voice and accent he is performing I was immediately able to tell who the character was. What was even better was that was when that character was doing an impression of another character and sound like both. I did particularly enjoy all the posh characters that Rupert performed though, it was easy to unsympathetic towards them given the context of the story when they all sounded like pompous brats.


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

    I had so many emotional reactions. Probably most of all when things would get so tense that I couldn't handle it and I'd have turn it off for 5 minutes, go make a cup of tea and mentally prepare myself for what came next.


    Any additional comments?

    I found out about his book on a buzzfeed article titled "12 fantasy novels that are actually good despite their covers", I'd read a couple off of there and this was the last one on the list and came the most highly rated from the person who wrote the article, I did a bit of research and there is nothing but glowing praise for this book, and you won't be disappointed if this is you kind of thing.

    "The Name of the Wind Part 2"

    Perhaps the most intriguing thing about this book is the narration - am I the only person who thinks it sounds as if it is Richard Burton reading it? He brings so much texture to a really good story

    "Good stuff"

    A strong story, and quality voice acting which really works.
    Not sure why we pay twice to get one book in this case - but it's worth it if you're paying by credits rather than cash.

    "Narrator is excellent, story is good"
    Would you try another book written by Patrick Rothfuss or narrated by Rupert Degas?

    Yes, both the author and the narrator are new to me and I've been highly impressed by both.


    What other book might you compare The Name of the Wind (Part Two) to, and why?

    The story of the boyhood days of a legendary hero reminded me a little of the Belgariad.


    What about Rupert Degas’s performance did you like?

    Rupert Degas is now the most impressive narrator I have discovered, some of his voices are just beautiful.


    Did The Name of the Wind (Part Two) inspire you to do anything?

    It inspired me to check whether audible have broken one book in half and sold it to me twice.


    Any additional comments?

    Like most of the other reviewers here I was less than impressed to discover that that this was a single book sold in two halves. This story is not quite as engaging as the first book was but I think it needed to fill in a lot of bridging material to bring the characters into adulthood. The narrator though is excellent and if nothing else I'm glad I discovered him.

    "Scam"

    I loved the narration, although on occasion, when Rupert Degas recounted what the characters said, he didn't seem to give the utterance the same meaning as Patrick Rothfuss had intended, as described in the text.

    The story is brilliant. It played out in my head like a film. Patrick Rothfuss has a masterful attention to detail.

    My only bicker is that the book is split into two parts, as is the second book. This seems like a bit of a scam to me and if it weren't for the fact that I hate to change narrators in the middle of the story, I would look for the book using a different audio-book seller.

    It has made me want to look in different places for subsequent books and if I find that the books I want are not split into two by other sellers, and that they are reasonably priced, I will probably cancel my subscription to Audible.

    Story
    "A new epic"

    Following on from part one this is shaping up to be a very intriguing and entertaining trilogy. The narrator is frankly one of the best and I would honestly listen to him read the phone book. There was a concern that around two thirds of the way throgh I thought this was going to change from a character based narrative to an action based one where the main protaganist stumbles from one disaster to another, and I know that that is a popular construct but I felt, following part one and most of this part it would be a shame. Thankfully the author reverted to the former. just downloaded the next part

    "A fantastic story beautifully read"
    Which character – as performed by Rupert Degas – was your favourite?

    All of them! Rupert Degas does a fantastic job of bringing all of the characters to life. His accents are spot on


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

    Both


    Any additional comments?

    This is a genuinely great story which has been read and edited beautifully. The slight change in tone of Rupert Degas' voice can be barely noticeable but suddenly you're on the edge of your seat listening intently, desperate to find out what happens next!

    "Fantastic, well written and beautifully narrated"
    Would you listen to The Name of the Wind (Part Two) again? Why?

    I wasn't that interested in this book but when I read all the reviews I thought 'that many people can't be wrong' and they weren't. The story is a little slow but so well written and narrated that it kept me spellbound.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy these books from audible!
    Two of these books are each split making them 4 books. They are available from iTunes as complete books saving you money. They are also available on the US audible site as two complete books. I don't like being ripped off!
