Name of the Wind
« on: April 03, 2013, 08:36:36 AM »
I'm relistening to Name of the Wind right now.  Anyone else read it?  Seriously, this is going to be a fantasy classic.  It's so well crafted.  Balances dark, funny, and just a damn good story....


The sequel is equally good.  Can't wait for the end of the trilogy.

Yes! I just read the first one last week, and now I'm about 90% done with the second on my kindle. The way the chapters are written, it's almost impossible to put down. I keep telling myself, "Just one more chapter..."

I am almost done with the first.  Amazing ride.  I am duly impressed by this story.

Second is better - though it doesn't have the scene where he gets his pipes....so....that's a big minus

1/2 way through Wise Man's Fear....  I agree it is better than the first.  Wonderful story.

Since reading this book I've finished a couple of Earthsea novels, the Mistborn Trilogy, and now I'm starting on The Wheel of Time Series. Love me some fantasy. And my Kindle.

It gets better.  Where is he now?

On the road with the mercenaries.  Tensions are getting high.

I just started this book and am about a quarter of the way in and it's really good!

You haven't even made it to the meat yet.  You're going to love it.
