'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.

My name is Kvothe.
You may have heard of me'

So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.

The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

    Loved from the first moment. A master of words himself, I didn’t need much to imagine every last detail. A beautiful read.

    Hands down the best two books I have ever read (eagerly awaiting number 3). I promise you will not regret reading this, Patrick is a genius! Beware however of expecting to do anything productive once you start ;)

    By DievichRB
    The characters are fantastic and the story is so smooth and light that you don't even feel when it's over and you wish it never ends this is my second time and can't wait for the third.

    In the Name of The Wind- Patrick Rothfuss, probably one of the best books I've ever read, and I read everyday. As someone whom is not usually a fantasy reader I was a bit skeptical at first. However upon picking it up I found that I couldn't put it down. Patrick wove a story about love, magic, wizardry, friendship and battling foes. At times I laughed out loud, and at times I cried, but I always felt something! Sensational book 👍😊
  • Disappointed

    By SluJones
    I was excited to read this because it's do lauded but I was sorely disappointed. Ive rarely read anything with a less likeable protagonist. I found him smug and irritating and, even worse, just boring. Maybe it's just me and I don't get it but I just couldn't get through this book.
  • Corrupt

    By JessJess33
    I'm sure this is a great book but my iPad and laptop both say it is corrupt. It only shows up as blank pages. I have tried deleting it and redownloading it and Resetting my iPad but nothing. I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else. I was really excited to read this.

    I don't usually read fantasy novels and was turned into this series by a friend. I can't put it down. Absolutely brilliant.

    Filled with characters to love and hate, places you'd love to visit and music you'd give anything to hear. I found myself cheering Kvothe on in his adventures, cursing the turns for the worse, and eager to turn the next page and find the answers to all of my questions. On to book 2!
