Name Of The Wind, The

Patrick Rothfuss
My name is Kvothe. 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. You may have heard of me. So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

As dire as described in all of the 1-star reviews:
* terribly written, young-adult fare
* big strong alpha-male hero who can do everything,
* clumsy clumsy clumsy
* all characters are one-dimensional
* all scenes are one-dimensional.

I mean, it's just awful, and when the big strong green-eyed hero switched to recounting the bone-damagingly boring story of his ONE-TRUE-LOVE, then I just couldn't take it any more.

Shame on all those who give this pile of amateur crap 3 stars or more.

This was an amazing book full of adventure and magic and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It took me longer to read this book than normal but I still greatly enjoyed it. The book is an emotional roller coaster as it follows the main character through his life as he relays the story to a writer. The ending leaves off in a good place and sets it up for the next book. I would definitely read this book again if I found time to. ~Meg
