    Patrick Rothfuss
    It all began when Pat Rothfuss was born to a marvelous set of parents Throughout his formative years they encouraged him to do his best, gave him good advice, and were no doubt appropriately dismayed when he failed to live up to his full potential.In high school Pat was something of a class clown His hobbies included reading a novel or two a day and giving relationship advice to all his friends despite the fact that he had never so much as kissed a girl He also role played and wrote terrible stories about elves He was pretty much a geek.Most of Pat s adult life has been spent in the University Wisconsin Stevens Point In 1991 he started college in order to pursue a career in chemical engineering, then he considered clinical psychology In 1993 he quit pretending he knew what he wanted to do with his life, changed his major to undecided, and proceeded to study whatever amused him He also began writing a book.For the next seven years Pat studied anthropology, philosophy, eastern religions, history, alchemy, parapsychology, literature, and writing He studied six different martial arts, practiced improv comedy, learned how to pick locks, and became a skilled lover of women He also began writing a satirical advice column which he continues to this day The College Survivial Guide Through all of this he continued to work on his novel.In 2000 Pat went to grad school for English literature Grad school sucked and Pat hated it However, Pat learned that he loved to teach He left in 2002 with his masters degree, shaking the dust from his feet and vowing never to return During this period of time his novel was rejected by roughly every agent in the known universe.Now Pat teaches half time at his old school as an assistant sub lecturer He is underpaid but generally left alone to do as he sees fit with his classes He is advisor for the college feminists, the fencing club, and, oddly enough, a sorority He still roll plays occasionally, but now he does it in an extremely sophisticated, debonair way.Through a series of lucky breaks, he has wound up with the best agent and editor imaginable, and the first book of his trilogy has been published under the title The Name of the Wind Though it has only been out since April 2007, it has already been sold in 26 foreign countries and won several awards Pat has been described as a rough, earthy iconoclast with a pipeline to the divine in everyone s subconscious But honestly, that person was pretty drunk at the time, so you might want to take it with a grain of salt.

    This is why I love fantasy so much. After a recent string of okay fantasy novels, a couple of good ones but nothing to get really excited about, I've rediscovered my passion thanks to this book. I'm so impressed, and so in love, I can't begin to describe it. But I can try to give you a feel for the book, if I can figure out where to start and how to do justice to this masterpiece.Kvothe (pronounced like "Quothe") is a world-renowned figure of mystery with a disreputable reputation - a hero or a [...]

    I have no interest in imagining I'm someone who is stronger, deadlier, smarter, sexier, etc. than myself - a famed hero in a milqtoast world little different from modern North America. I read fantasy to immerse myself in strange worlds ripe with danger and conflict. To uncork primal wonders. And there is none of that in Rothfuss' book. His world is about as strange and dangerous as a mashed potato sandwich. His protagonist is comically overblown wish fullfillment for people who weren't popular i [...]

    I kinda liked this book. But my opinion on the matter probably shouldn't be trusted.

    I'll give this 5* with no begrudging. I'm pretty easy with my 5*, they're not reserved for the best book I've ever read, just very good books. I thought The Name of the Wind was "very good". I read it in what for me was a very short span of time - it had that 'more-ish' quality that best sellers need.Can I see what makes this the single best selling epic fantasy for a generation (apart from George Martin's series)? No. Excepting that perhaps the lesson is that to be head and shoulders above your [...]

    I'm sorry, Mr. Rothfuss. For realz, actual sorry. Honestly. I tried giving your book two stars out of pity, since I so wanted to like it and I'd feel bad about giving it one star and dragging down your average rating. Though you don't appear to need my pity. Your book has the highest average GR rating (4.49) of any of the book I've read. I finally dropped my rating down to one star because it's just a steaming pile of crap and I couldn't take the embarrassment of having posted a two-star rating [...]

    As an avid adult fantasy reader, out of all the books that I’ve been recommended, The Name of the Wind has always been recommended to me the most. Google, , book reviewing sites, 9gag, even some people who don't read a lot of fantasy books, they have all praised the series highly and now that I’ve read it, it’s my opinion that the fame is well deserved and there’s no doubt that this is truly a fantastic adult high fantasy book.In terms of plot overview, the book is actually highly simpli [...]

    Holy special snowflake, Gary Stu. You know the type of socially awkward insecure guy who seems to lurk in the corner of every university class trying to correct everyone and whose only purpose is to make sure the world at large realizes just how much better he is at everything? And despite never seeing any actual evidence that he's God's gift to humanity, you genuinely DO NOT CARE either way and just want him to shut up? Welcome to 600+ pages narrated by that guy.I wanted to love this book SO mu [...]

    Okay. Wow. Let's back the hell up here. How is this so highly rated? Are those genre-establishment reviewers who're thrashing about in paroxysms of fawning five-star NEXT BIG THING OMG joy wearing blinders or just so used to mediocre fantasy that this book actually comes across looking good in comparison? Why do these high fantasy disappointments keep on keeping on? Whose brilliant idea was it to throw around the GRRM and Harry Potter comparisons, thereby actually getting me to waste my pennies [...]

    MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListIT WAS NIGHT AGAIN. The Waystone Inn lay in silence, and it was a silence of three parts. The most obvious part was a hollow, echoing quiet, made by things that were lacking. If there had been a wind it would have sighed through the trees, set the inn's sign creaking on its hooks, and brushed the silence down the road like trailing autumn leaves.This is only part of the prologue to THE NAME OF THE WIND that drew me right in, the whole prologue was so beautif [...]

    ”Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts. There are seven words that will make a person love you. There are ten words that will break a strong man's will. But a word is nothing but a painting of a fire. A name is the fire itself.”Okay, there are books andthen there are BOOKS!!!I guess this said it actually doesn’t take a lot to figure that “The Name of the Wi [...]

    I must preface this review by stating that my experience with fantasy is somewhat limited: the Harry Potter books, George R.R. Martin, a dozen scattered other novels and series. The more of it I read, the more I realize traditional "epic" fantasy of the multi-book series tack is not quite for me.Or maybe I am bad at choosing, since I really like some of it (Martin, Bujold). Some of it, not so much. Take, for instance, The Name of the Wind, one of the most celebrated fantasy debuts in years, with [...]

    Originally posted here.This is definitely one of my new favorite books, so if you're a friend of mine, prepare to have me brutally push it on you until you give in and give it a go.One of the reviews I read compared it to The Song of Ice and Fire and Lord of the Rings, saying that the book was equal to the best of fantasy written thus far. Well let me tell you, this doesn't stand alongside the fantasy greats, it knocks them off the shelves.It isn't just some fantastic epic that you read for fun [...]

    Upon this second reading, I've come to the conclusion that the audiobook for this isn't the greatest. SO, if you're reading it for the first time I INSIST that you read the actual book. 100% the best way to read this book. Also I am SO READY for book two.

    "I must confess myself disappointed."(For those who don't get the reference, it's a line that Voldemort uses in Goblet of Fire - the movie version at least. I am using a Harry Potter reference in retaliation to all those people who are somehow comparing this to that series, for the sole reason that there's a freaking magical university. Really, there's very little comparison aside from that. I mean, not even to get into how the whole tone and whatnot is different, but, really, the fact that ther [...]

    OKAY WOW. THAT WAS FREAKING BRILLIANT AND I AM UTTERLY ABSOLUTELY ENTIRELY OBSESSED. And noooo I'm NOT GOING TO STOP SHOUTING. I shall keep shouting!! Because I loved it so!! It had like a checklist of so many things I love that it's most emphatically a Cait Book. And what is this checklist, you ask? Well, sir. Here you go:CAIT'S CHECKLIST OF GOODNESS IN BOOKS:• young genius narrator ✓• who is totally too sassy at times because #clever ✓• magic ✓• plus an intensely amazing MAGIC SY [...]

    When I began reading this, I did so with a yawn. It initially appeared quite basic and completely uninspiring. I almost stopped reading after twenty five pages, shocking I know. If I did that it would have been a massive mistake because this is one of the best fantasy novels published in the last twenty years. Those first few pages did nothing to encourage me, but as soon as I realised that this is, essentially, a story about a story, I was hooked of Rothfuss’ magic.This series has such a huge [...]

    THIS. BOOK. WAS. SO. FREAKING. GOOD.I'm not over it. Everyone was right it's amazing and I love it so much and I'm still sad the third book isn't out even though it's been basically six years it's fine EVERYTHING IS FINE.This book has all the makings of a great fantasy. Amazing world building. Characters that you connect with & that grow. Plot that moves along very well and is supremely interesting. It's got it all.One thing I also appreciated is how simple the magic system is. It's pretty e [...]

    Patrick Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind (The KingKiller Chronicle #1) is a work I should have read a long time ago. This is a magnificent and wonderfully-written epic fantasy novel! I actually started it a little over a year ago, but didn’t get very far. At the time, I had been plowing through books, and I’ve since discovered that this is not the way to get to know or appreciate The Name of the Wind. This first book in The KingKiller Chronicle emphasizes the early years of a wizard named K [...]

    I don't have words adequate enough to express how much I enjoyed this book. Kvothe is now one of my all-time favorite characters. The world Patrick Rothfuss has created is so vivid and rich and well-imagined. I ate this book up because it was SO DARN GOOD!!! Seriously, no coherent and structured review here because I am just gushing over how fantastic this book is. If you even remotely enjoy fantasy books (and especially if you don't think you like fantasy) go read this book now! 5/5 stars and a [...]

    ETA #2: Spare me Rothfuss fanboys who just want to pick fights over negative reviews. I thought the book sucked. My thinking the book sucked in no way impacts how much others enjoyed the book. And if you are uncomfortable that I point out the lack of strong female characters, the main character as essentially a male Mary Sue, or the fact that the entire book was pure male fantasy wish fulfillment, then perhaps you should consider some personal reflection on why those points upset youA: I had to [...]

    I really disliked the main character, to the extent that I couldn't get more than 1/3rd through it. The other problem I had was the language: Kvothe's eyes are described as shards of ice just a sentence before his voice is likened to a sharp steel blade. Ah well--there's lots of other high fantasy in the world.

    else fine
    I really, really wish I could give this negative stars.

    I just caved and bought this book, even though my birthday is in less than a month IT'S JUST SO BEAUTIFUL I COULD NOT WAIT.

    1.) The Name of the Wind ★★★★★2.) The Wise Man's Fear ★★★★★2.4) The Lightning Tree ★★★★★2.5) The Slow Regard of Silent Things ★★★★★3.) Doors of Stone n/aI always feel like when I write a review for a five star book I'm not doing the book justice. It's easy for me to write what worked or what didn't work, but it's hard for me to describe magic. The book even touches on this and how it's impossible to describe some things. It would be easier for me just to c [...]

    I heard a lot of hype and great things about this book from just about everyone and their mom in order to tell everyone else and their mom who has not read the book to read it so they can fall in love and rate it five stars. So I took a shot and check this book out of the library, ending up hating the book mostly because of the main character, Kovthe. Everything that he does to me might as well be a flaw, the flaw of being rational , not thinking of the consequences or the emotional effect it wo [...]

    They say writers should write what they love, what they're passionate about, and Patrick Rothfuss loves stories. The Name of the Wind introduces us to Kvothe, a legendary figure now living a quiet life as an innkeeper. This is the first book in a trilogy, and takes us through the first day of Kvothe telling his story to The Chronicler, a wandering scribe and collector of stories. Rothfuss also shows us the power of stories. Kvothe is shaped both by the stories others tell about him as he grows u [...]

    So many of my favourite reviewers on have praised this book to high heaven, so obviously I jumped at it without a second thought, just to end up feeling "meh" about it.It would seem, sadly, I expected too much. Something I'm not wont to do, but even the best slip up, I suppose.Still, I really hate not loving this book. However, it isn't all bad. Let me tell you the good things first, like why it's getting 3 stars:1. The ideaI love the switching back and forth between present time and the past. [...]

    I don't know what to say that would give this book justice. It's been a while since I have completed it and yet here I am unable to stop thinking about it. Yes, it's true. This book was slow, really slow. But this book isn't like all fantasy books out there; good training to defeat evil, though there's an element of evil here, but it's not the focus of the story. Not at all. This book is the story of this young man who is considered a legend, you read to find out why and how he became this legen [...]

    6.0 stars. One of my All Time favorite novels. This is essentially a perfect novel. Having just finished it I can honestly say that even at 662 pages, there was not a slow or dull moment in the novel. I loved every page and can not wait for the sequel. HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION!! Read it!!
