Storytelling at its best! Everything that Nick Podehl touches is gold.
I just discovered Patrick Rothfuss about a week and a half ago and have already read almost everything by him. I’m an instant fan! I LOVE his writing style. THIS is what I have been missing from other authors and I didn’t even know.
The story was slow and a bit convoluted for me
Beautifully written, and easy to get into. I feel a trope in fantasy is that many of the characters are without moral flaws, but here they are in abundance, which made me feel personally for the characters. Narrater did a great job as well.
Awesome book. Grips you from the start and leaves you thirsty for more.
Second favorite book
Loved listening to every minute of this audio presentation!!
I enjoyed this book more than Name of the Wind, it was not as overly descriptive and the character had more experiences. There was a lot more light hearted humor in it as well. I listen while I work, so I really like that it is a loooong book, and I was sad when it ended. I am even sadder to find out the third book has not been finished yet.
If the second novel in a trilogy is supposed to be ‘the weakest,’ then book three of the Kingkiller Chronicle is going to knock me flat. I’m fully invested in Kvothe now, that is why the reported “slowness” of the plot compared to book one did not bother me at all. The narrator commits without being ridiculous and has a consistent hold on difficult fantasy words.
This book build on interesting ideas but the story progression is to slow and tedious. It is built on single events where everything in between is a lot of repetitive descriptions and fluff to fill the 43 hours it takes to go through this fella
Patrick Rothfuss was born in Wisconsin where long winters and lack of cable television brought about a love of reading and writing. His mother read to him as a child, and his father taught him to build things. If you are looking for the roots of his storytelling, look there. He still lives in central Wisconsin, still lacks cable television, teaches at the college he grew to love as a student and the long winters force him to stay inside and write.
