The Name of the Wind
The Name of the Wind: The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day One | 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.

"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."

HOLY HOLY. I‘ve never read a book so fast. 11 days with 661 pages. That‘s incredible for me!! I don‘t even know where to begin. Everything was phenomenal and there is everything for everyone. The whole magic system is so unique and easy to understand. There are real consequences where I begged Kvothe not to do/go something/somewhere. Drew me in. This is a book that should be read by everyone. I LOVE IT. Top contender of my favorite read this year!

Rothdell And yes, I‘m going to buy the second one as soon as I can!! 4d

It took me a long time to enjoy this book. The book is based in a world with little context of it. But after I got into the story, it really took off. The story is a high recommend but with the caveat that it is a series but the third book is pending. Apparently, the author is playing the George RR Martin and not getting the book out.

Page 222 out of 661. I find myself sharing all of Kvothe‘s emotions... Sorrow, happiness, love, ambition, and anger. I find myself stopping at a part where he is happy so I can enjoy the rest of my day!

GUYS IM IN LOVE. All I think about and want is to sit down and read this book! It seriously might be the best piece I‘ve read all year. 111 pages out of 661.

Took a week off to reset my mind (what I tell myself so I can watch tv and play games), but girl, it feels good to read again!! I don‘t have much fantasy on my timeline, but this book is a gift from my old co-worker. I‘m only 34 pages in and I‘m already hooked! 630 more pages to go!

DrexEdit Beware its the first of three and the third book is not done yet. It doesn't bother me, but I know some people don't like starting a series they can't finish! 😊 2w
LauraJ I did the same thing last week. It was lovely to read and watch tv with no guilt! 2w
Rothdell @DrexEdit I actually prefer it this way! I like to be with the fan base and share the hype when the finale drops. When is the new one suppose to hit? “Edit: spelling/grammar” (edited) 2w
DrexEdit @Rothdell well, I marked it “to read” on goodreads in 2014. 😜 there have been some rumors that 2020 will be the year though. Patrick Rothfuss has a huge fan-base so there‘s likely to be lots of hype! 2w

SPOILER ALERT: A bartender, Kote, tells the story of his life as Kvothe the legendary arcanist who looked for the name of the wind and found it. All throughout the book Kvothe goes through the loss of his family, to hardships, to living life at his dream place of study.

I just took a “What Kind of Reader Are You?” quiz from the Random Penguin and apparently I‘m the book club boss. Which is funny because I‘ve been to all of one book club meeting. I definitely talk too much, though.

Also I‘m finally making some headway through my Name of the Wind reread! I‘m loving reading the physical book the second time through.

This is a fun story. I know that, currently, there are only two books in the series, but it seems like there could be ten eventually. Is it just me?

Caterina Maybe that's why he's having such trouble getting the third in the trilogy out, he's trying to fit too many books in one! 😂 2mo
Pedrocamacho @Caterina Seriously! I‘m still a little shocked that they only completed one day of three days of storytelling! I am now assuming that each book of the trilogy is a day of said storytelling? 🤷‍♀️ 2mo

ThalassaLuna @readingjedi Honestly, that was my biggest concern too. I usually like to wait until the entire series is out, but it doesn't look like it will be anytime soon for this one. So now I'm getting pre-angry that I won't be able to finish the story haha 2mo

I wanted a change of pace with something different and this one delivered!

I enjoyed the relaxed pace that allows the tale to unfold naturally and unrushed. If you're looking for fast-paced action, this is not going to be a good fit but if you want to take some time and get to a few interesting characters and be walked through the making of a hero then check out this book.

SimplyShelia @8little_paws Thanks it's from am area not far from where I'm from. It's called Stone Face, it's just over the border going from Kentucky into Virginia. As for the book, everyone likes what they like and even that changes sometimes throughout life. 2mo

My final stats for #TheReadingRush. I met my main goal of reading 1000 pages and notched up more badges than I was expecting! I didn‘t count my audiobook listening towards my pages read, but I listened to 90%+ of the Name of the Wind this past week, which is pretty impressive because it‘s a very long book!

This was super fun and I‘m excited to participate again next year!

Magical Systems. On Goodreads, I found a list of some books with Magical Systems. This is only a couple of them. I haven‘t read these books but I‘ve heard that they‘re good. I‘ve seen that people have been complaining because Patrick Rothfuss hasn‘t finished the #kingkillerchronicle series yet. I‘d like to read the first book but I‘m going to wait for awhile because I‘m already in the middle of a Fantasy series right now that I like.

IvoryLunatic Apart from Harry Potter, The Kingkiller Chronicles are my number one favorite fantasy series. I think he‘s built such a good world and love the characters. But yes. I do wish he would get on with the next book. 3mo

This book has been on my TBR for so long, I even have a paperback copy, but have been hesitant to start because it is SO long. I‘ve been looking for another good long audiobook to listen to now that I‘ve finished going through the whole Harry Potter series.

I‘m about 11 chapters in so far (out of 94?!), and really enjoying. The narrator does great voices, and the intro of the story was really enticing. Excited for this audiobook journey!

I was recommended this book by my penpal. And I was hesitant at first but all I heard were good things about it.& it was fantastic. I love the different arcs that are taken throughout. First person for the story and third for the present. I really loved the different vocabulary that was used. I already ordered the second book and right now the third is set to come out next year and I really hope it doesn't get put off again cause that would suck.

Read 400 pages of this yesterday which I think is a record for me. About a quarter of that at the thermal pools (school holidays!) Who else has thermal pools in their city? These ones are pretty dated but my bones enjoyed the heat 🔥

This is a 5 star fantasy. A fully fledged epic, which stands up to the best of my classic reads but also (thank you lord) depicts gender and class issues thoughtfully. ⬇️

AutumnRLS @Centique yeah, it's one of those infamously unfinished series (Think George RR Martin or Scott Lynch). Rothfuss is a really complex guy.

I will wait as long as it takes and then preorder the final book as soon as it's available. ❤ 3mo

Name of the Wind | Patrick Rothfuss

An interesting tale that starts on an ominous note. Kvothe is telling us his story of survival as he became an orphan and found his way, and left his mark, on the world. Somehow, he became the stuff of legends. For fantasy lovers as there's a major magical quality to this tale.
