Excellent Read

I've been discontented with my reading choices lately so I bought this book on a whim. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a gripping diversion. I highly recommend it. My only disappointment was that the next book in the series will not be available until next year.

Perfect for the Ludic Reader

Pick up this book now if you're the kind of person who likes to lose himself or herself in a text. Rothfuss and Kvothe will lead you on a journey through a world that exalts knowledge and story-telling.

The rules for the world of Name of the Wind may seem familiar, as if they are nods to a handful of classic fantasy texts. Don't worry about that. What's important here is that the characters will also seem familiar: they read like real people. Mind, Kvothe will seem like a few of the more brilliant people you know, and Denna may seem more wiley than anyone you keep in close company, but these are realistic characters you can and should empathize with.

One warning: I found the first 70 pages to be a bit slow. If you make it past there, you're set for an immersing adventure.

Freakin' sick

This book is awesome. Once you start reading it and get to around page 20 you get really sucked in.

I suggest everyone reads this book.

Hooked from the beginning

This is one of the best books I have read. I was pulled in from the very beginning, and could hardly put this one down. The characters are wonderful, the story keeps you interested at all times, and is fresh. My only disappointment is that I have to wait for the rest of the trilogy.
