Name of the Wind
Name of the Wind | Patrick Rothfuss
The riveting first-person narrative of a young man who grows to be the most notorious magician his world has ever seen. From his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime- ridden city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, "The Name of the Wind" is a masterpiece that transports readers into the body and mind of a wizard. It is a high-action novel written with a poet's hand, a powerful coming-of-age story of a magically gifted young man, told through his eyes: to read this book is to be the hero.

Finally got round to reading this fairly recently and loved it!
Can definitely see why so many people love it so much.
A brilliant, character driven epic that has clearly inspired many other authors.

I didn't manage to complete my goals for #awesomeapril but I did make good progress with my non-fiction choice of Incredible Journeys. I did complete the tagged as my fiction choice. Now moving onto my next fiction read, which is the next in my #thingsincommon thread. Picking up on wonders in the titles of IJ and new read Circus of Wonders by Elizabeth MacNeal.

Wasn't my favorite of the year, but a decent fantasy. This one did the thing that I struggle with for many fantasy worlds. Why CREATE a world where women are second class citizens? Are authors really that uncreative? But it was still pretty interesting and got me started on my audiobook kick.

I might be misremembering this detail, but I vaguely recall Kvothe spinning out his story next to a #fireplace in book one of the unfinished Kingkiller Chronicles. Fantasy books are always more appealing to me during the winter months & I have a few on my TBR that I am looking forward to potentially reading over the next couple of months. I heard a few days ago that he created a bit of buzz by reading the prologue to Doors of Stone & said it👇

vivastory is “moving forward.“ Whatever that means. #wishesandblessings @eggs @alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 5mo

As recommended by Rachel Parris on ‘Between the covers‘, this was really good! Like if Robin Hobb wrote Harry Potter for adults! It‘s a chunkster and I got restless at the 3/4 mark (prob more me than the book!) but amazing world building, characters to really root for and a plot that keeps you guessing! A fab read! 👍 #betweenthecovers

Pat, it hasn‘t been 84 years, but it‘s been 1.5 decades since the release of the first book. This trilogy has slowly leaked from my brain overtime. Someone asked if I had read it & for my thoughts, & I realized, why? I can‘t recall. I know I had ❤️‘d it, I know I had been excited. I know that I lost hope of a conclusion about 5 years ago. I wish litsy had polls, Bc I want to know! Whose holding out hope? Whose given up? & Who doesn‘t care anymore?

thegirlwiththelibrarybag About 7 years ago, when it was recommended to me, I thought I‘d wait and start when the last book came out... And at this point it‘s kind of in the “no longer care” basket 12mo
AmyG Oh, I barely remember anything at this point. 😳 12mo
LazyLibrary @AmyG Same! Like almost nothing lol 12mo
LazyLibrary @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Yeah, not even worth it due to lack of conclusion. Neither books can stand alone. It‘s in my NLC Basket as well. 12mo

Oh man, this really is a chronicle. So here comes my #unpopularopinion: I don't mind reading a chunkster if there's good reason for it to be a chunkster. This whole 660 pages was just the beginning of Kvothe's life story which was interesting enough but I still felt like it could've been told in half the amount of pages and still not feel rushed. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I don't know what's wrong with me. Everyone else loved this book. Maybe it was just my mood, but I thought it was too long and too rambling and slow. My interest waxed and waned with the action. It"s like listening to your grandfather give directions and he goes on and on--get to the point!

Congratulations @TheLudicReader

1 - A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie. Why? I work a LOT. It‘s an easy listen with great narration that takes my mind off of our crazy world with an even more insane world! Light on heavy world building & all about the morally gray characters.

2 - The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It‘s a magical coming of age epic fantasy. Lovely prose. Great narration, world building & character development.

🖤🎉👇🏻

Twainy I rarely re-read/re-listen to anything other than work texts. I was embarrassed to say Harry Potter but I love those audiobooks also. I drove to work listening to those when they came out (have them all on CD & Audible & I‘ve re-listened to those also. Fantastic narration) 👇🏻 1y
Twainy Everyone I‘ve gifted The Name of the Wind to has enjoyed it. From a 12 year old boy to a 70 year old grandma. I don‘t give books as gifts unless they are requested but this is a book I‘ve given to at least a dozen people in the past (never as a gift but as an add-on or “just because” gift). 1y
TheLudicReader Thanks so much for playing! 1y
Twainy @TheLudicReader thank you for posing the questions. I just finished book 2 in Abercrombie‘s new trilogy and now I‘m wishing I had time to re-listen to TNOTW! 😁🤗 1y

4.5🌟 Simply put, I loved this book. It is not as action-oriented as many fantasy books, but that is not to say that it doesn't move quickly. In many ways, it is a coming-of-age tale wrapped in the trappings of high fantasy. It is hard to say what gripped me, but this book gripped me from beginning to end.
