Wow...this book sounds incredible! Onto the wishlist it goes :)

I've really been debating about this book. I've heard alot of good things, but then again it is another of those massive books, and a series no less! Glad to hear that its going to be a trilogy though, that makes it more tempting to read.

Ok, this one sounds very interesting. One for the evergrowing list I think...

I like the cover, I'm slightly less keen on the one that appears on what I assume is the UK edition.

I've read Name of the Wind and it's just as good as everyone keeps saying--better, once you've experienced it for yourself. Kvothe is an explosive character and Rothfuss makes an excellent authorial decision to narrate in first person so that Kvothe's true nature can come through. The length may seem daunting, but so much personality could hardly be contained in anything less.

In regards to the cover art, you know what they say about books and covers...

This book is amazing, one of the best of the year. Its refreshingly original and a incredible read. If you like fantasy, magic, and demons, this book is for you.

I give it my highest recommendation and I believe the name Kvothe will soon be mentioned with names like Drizzt and Eragon.

This book is absoluly amazing the second best book I have ever started reading, I am reading it currently. If anyone knows where to get it on audio please let me know I work and have a family so I do not get much reading time.


finished the book, the best book i have read. The words on the page flow as easy as.... well he explains analogies in the book as well.... by far the best line. Recommend to everyone, you may actually be depressed when you finish it and realize you have to wait months for the next.
