Phenomenal read for yourself or excellent gift for any lover of Fantasy books
I'm a hard convert to my Kindle, but sometimes I come across a read that I enjoy so much I want to own a hardcopy. Something I can display proudly on my book shelf, lend to friends and have on hand for the inevitable technological collapse of modern society.
I loved this read. If you enjoyed Wheel of Time, are reading the Stormlight Archives (book 3 out next week!) or are a fan of the epic fantasy genre, you will too.
Whether or not it's your jam this is a great buy for a Christmas gift to anyone who fits the above literary description! I've actually bought this as a present for my brother and can't wait to share Rothfuss' world with him.
The Name of the Wind : 10th Anniversary Deluxe Illustrated Edition
4.55/ 5 (461,720 ratings by Goodreads)
By (author) Patrick Rothfuss
'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 - currently known as Kote, the 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 yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.
The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.
