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.

    "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.

    "The story continues...."
    Where does The Name of the Wind (Part Two) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely one of my favourite audiobooks, simply because of Degas' wonderful voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story, the romance, surprisingly even the jumps between past and present.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Slaying the dragon, need I say more?


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

    I think it is hard not to be moved by this story. It feels so real, so human... I honestly can't imagine anyone not liking it.

    Story
    "If this book were human I'd marry it."
    Where does The Name of the Wind (Part Two) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Name of the Wind part two is half of THE best book I've read/listened to, nuff said.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The complexity of the world that Rothfuss has created is so complete that you might question if our own is the real one.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The best is always the following chapter - it's like chasing a teasing lover.


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

    I'm not easy but I'd drop 'em for this book. Is that emotional enough for you?


    Any additional comments?

    You can buy this book but you will never own it; it's MINE.

    Story
    "A classic in the making"

    Forget the Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Song of Ice and Fire this is a superb read. I was searching around looking for something new when I came across this book. Its completely gripping.

    The story is told in past and present tense, the main character is called Kvothe and he is telling the story of his life. Wonderful narration from Rupert Degas.

    Worth every penny, I cant recommend this more highly.

    Story
    "Good but perhaps not great"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book seemed to get excellent reviews across the board, and I was encouraged, as I listened to the excellent "First Law" series under the same premise, and was certainly not disappointed by those audiobooks. While this story was good, I would say I didn't enjoy it to the same extent that others have. It is very very slow - not always a problem, and to an extent you can immerse yourself and enjoy it - but I often felt my self wondering what the point was. I just expected more. I will probably will read the sequel, but I won't rush to it. The blurb does make it sound good, but out of the events described that occurred, I didn't find them individually to be terribly exciting. When we finally came to the events at Trebon, I felt that the reason for Kvothe being there was thin, and it all seemed a bit random anyway. I couldn't see much of a point to it. A lot of time is spent going through small events that don't seem to have much of a point. And as for Kvothe himself, while he was talented, he never came across as a good embodiment of the so-called "competent man" to me, arrogant and rather erratic is how I would put him. Nonetheless, the best critic is still only a frustrated creative person, and I have to give Rothfuss credit for creating an ambitious long story in an original way.


    If you’ve listened to books by Patrick Rothfuss before, how does this one compare?

    Just part one, this review applies to both.


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

    No, but I would say the narration is good but not great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    Story
    "Makings of a great trilogy..."
    If you could sum up The Name of the Wind (Part Two) in three words, what would they be?

    Really enjoyed the Name of the Wind, although quite a long audiobook (parts 1 and 2) it moves along quite nicely. Patrick Rothfuss likes to take his time setting the scene and developing some of the more minor plot lines. At some stages you could be forgiven believing that this could turn into another Game of Thrones marathon but he rounds it off quite nicely for Book two in the series. A great fantasy adventure with a true hero.
