There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description. A new giant is striding the land. Martin or J. Le Guin, George R. Martin, and J. Tolkein, but never felt that Rothfuss was imitating anyone.
Kvothe "pronounced nearly the same as 'Quothe' " , the hero and villain of a thousand tales who's presumed dead, lives as the simple proprietor of the Waystone Inn under an assumed name. Prompted by a biographer called Chronicler who realizes his true identity, Kvothe starts to tell his life story. From his upbringing as an actor in his family's traveling troupe of magicians, jugglers and jesters, the Edema Ruh, to feral child on the streets of the vast port city of Tarbean, then his education at "the University," Kvothe is driven by twin imperatives—his desire to learn the higher magic of naming and his need to discover as much as possible about the Chandrian, the demons of legend who murdered his family.

This story plods along; it is extremely boring at times; and the protagonist is self-absorbed to say the least. I am still not finished with it and have been picking it up off and on for weeks.
Normally I would finish a book in two days. I just read the reviews of book two and will pass on it altogether. It just sounds like more of the same with nothing wrapped up. And it took the author 4 years to write book two since book one?
Why consider it if it is more of the same. And it has been 7 years since book two and no mention of book three. I guess my standards are different but I think this book is way overblown in the reviews and there is no assurance there will even be an ending.
No mention of book three so there is no reason to believe there will ever be one.

He appears to have shifted to comic books. Again, why bother to start a series when there will never be any closure? Too many good series to waste time on this one. I am more of a historical romance kinda gal. My husband happened to be browsing ebooks and the last thing I knew, this gem was popping up as "based on your shopping history" type thing.
I started reading the reviews and debated I LOVE to read but don't rarely get the chance with young children these days. I decided I was going to buy the book. I then splurged for the audible narration as well!!! That said, many reviews debate over which narrator they preferred. The version I got was with Nick Podehl. I thought he did a wonderful job with this story. He uses different voices for different characters and is consistent.
I enjoyed listening to him narrate Rothfuss' masterpiece. The story itself took me a little bit to get into I actually ended up re-reading them to make sure I was following along. This book contains MANY details and characters to follow worth paying attention to. After I was able to grasp the beginning the rest of the story unfolded beautifully! I already had the second purchased and downloaded audible narration included before I was finished. This book is LONG!
I not ONCE lost interest. At places I almost teared up, I got angry and I actually laughed out loud I am truly pleased with this purchase and look forward to reading more from Patrick!
Well done and thank you for the greatest story I've read in years! This is one of the worst books I have ever read. I went into it optimistic: The story lacks narrative tension; the breaking up of chapters is inconsistent and distracting; the main character is poorly developed; the prose is obtuse.
I truly believe that there is almost nothing of redeeming value in this book. If I had been born a couple of hundred years ago I would probably have been burned as a demon.
I keep it short but it's unruly.

When left to its own devices, it sticks up and makes me look as if I have been set afire. I've never thought of "The Broken Tree" as very significant. Although in retrospect, I suppose it could be considered at least partially prophetic.
My first mentor called me E'lir because I was clever and I knew it. My first real lover called me Dulator because she liked the sound of it.
I have been called Shadicar, Lightfinger, and Six-String. I have earned those names. Bought and paid for them. But I was brought up as Kvothe. My father once told me it meant "to know. Most of them uncouth, although very few were unearned. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon.
