If you fell in love with Melanie in the million-copy-selling post-apocalyptic phenomenon The Girl With All the Gifts - there's more to the story... Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy. The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world. To where the monsters lived.

This book is second only to Name of the Wind. I've read the book and listened to the audiobook. I am anxiously waiting for the third book to come out. Patrick Rothfuss is an amazing writer. His writing is so easy to read ... and read ... one more page ... no one more page ... until you're up way past your bedtime.

I had no idea what I was going to be listening to when I started. But I listened to it almost straight though and thought it was interesting. It's definitely given me ideas on things I should talk to my kids about.
