    1. An Opinionated look at:Patrick Rothfuss' The Wise Man's FearBy Eric AllenOne thing I can say for Patrick Rothfuss is that he has great ideas. Unfortunately, great ideas do not a great story make. I have heard rumors that the first book, The Name of the Wind, took eleven years of revisions and rewrites to finally get published. Whether that is true or not, his hard work paid off. Since its release, the internet hype over the future of the trilogy has been building to monumental proportions. Rothf [...]


    3. Well, it's done. And it's been a long time coming Back in late 2009 I finally got the book to the point where I was satisfied with it. It was an okay book. It was a book that if I had to publish it, I knew it wouldn't embarrass me. By May 2010 I'd re-written the book to the point where I was happy with it. It was a good book. It was a book I was pleased with. By my final deadline in November 2010, I'd revised things to the point where I was excited about it. It was a great book. It was finally a [...]

    4. I'm going to have to be a voice of dissent. I found Kvothe profoundly annoying. Here's an excerpt of his typical storytelling, word for word:"I managed very little sleep that night, and Losi came closer to killing me than Felurian ever had."(Post-coital thoughts on the second girl in 20 pages. He's 16.)"She was a delightful partner, every bit as wonderful as Felurian had been. But how could that be? I hear you ask. How could any mortal woman compare with Felurian?"Felurian is a ghost/fairy from [...]

    5. There's a tendency when reading a series to rate the books against each other rather than against the world. I've seen it done to my own books: I loved XXXX of Thorns but it wasn't as good as YYYY of Thorns so 4*.I didn't enjoy The Wise Man's Fear as much as I enjoyed The Name of the Wind. I didn't enjoy A Dance With Dragons as much as I enjoyed A Game of Thrones. But I'm giving them ALL 5* because compared to most books I read they're noticeably better. I won't 4* this book to make my point t [...]

    6. (This review is from 2011.)In case you haven’t heard, today is the release day of the long-awaited sequel to The Name of the Wind, a delightful debut fantasy novel by Patrick Rothfuss. I’ve had the privilege of reading the book, so I thought I’d post a heads-up here for those of you who read my blog, along with a review. (Of sorts.) Also, a reminder, I did an interview with Pat (and he kind of interviewed me back) for . You can read it at this link: amazon/gp/featuremlPART ONE: A REVIEW OF [...]

    7. So, there's an established phenomenon that I don't think anyone has coined a snappy title for yet, in my head I call it "Fabulous but Unpredicted Success Leads to a Complete lack of Editorial Constraint or Outside Input Whatsoever which-in-turn Leads to Creative Stagnation and Catastrophe". FUSLCECOIWLCSC. Foo-Sil-Kec-Oiw-Lecuscu. Not going to be printed in a newspaper any time soon, but it's true in all kinds of media.Generally:1. Someone outside the established system will bring in something n [...]

    8. 4.75⭐️ A farewell letter to my Kvothe. WOW. Oh, wow. It just dawned on me that Kvothe and I won’t be meeting again for another, what, 10 to 15 years? Sounds about right. The inevitable long await is so disheartening and the fury's already starting to creep in.Thus, Kvothe, this's my farewell letter to you.Dearest favourite douche in fantasy,Let's get real, here, you rub people the wrong way (not me. Never me). But people do talk and the consensus is that you’re arrogant, kind of an ass, [...]

    9. I am SO excited to read this. Omg. AHH.EditSecond time reading this, and I decided to listen to the audiobook - I really enjoyed the narration. It was a long audiobook, but it was enjoyable every second of the way.

    10. 4.5/5 starsThe Wise Man’s Fear had all the potential to be better than The Name of the Wind and although this is still an amazing book, putting it in comparison with its prequel show how this one fell a bit short in quality.Picture: The Wise Man’s Fear main quoteThe plot of WMF, still as simplistic as the previous book, started on Day 2 straight after the end of NotW with Kvothe sharing his life journey to Chronicler with Bast listening to it. If you think the pacing of NotW was slow, believ [...]

    11. FINALLY!!How much can I rave about these books? The storytelling is so engrossing, the worldbuilding super immersive, and the characters pull all the stellar elements together in a series that truly defines epic fantasy. You want to KNOW these characters, you want to see them interact, and you definitely want to go on a journey with them.After reading a lot of paperback UF novels, I felt so pleased that this book provided what felt like 4 books-worth of story and development and wonderfulness fo [...]

    12. It's hard to write a review after reading a book like this. It's like reviewing a sunset after a spring storm. Yes, that's a poetic image, and that's what Rothfuss does to your brain. I plan on selling all my worldly possessions soon and devoting my life to chasing the windBut meanwhile, I'll try to do this book justice. It starts much as Name of the Wind ended, with Kvothe still a 15 year old at the University. It spends about 300 pages in this mode. Kvothe has a handful of new adventures at th [...]

    13. I enjoyed the first book, but did not feel the same way about this one. Fantasy books are meant to be the unbelievable, this much is certain, and the heroes that take the starring role are meant to be people of great intrigue and who can accomplish completely incredible feats, but it feels that it's pushed a bit too far in this book.Kvothe not only is an amazing arcanist, a prodigy with a memory so perfect that he can call up how people smelled on a single day years ago, but he's a musician, and [...]

    14. Patrick Rothfussalmost did it again. Healmostwielded his magic like he did the first time; healmost teased me in the same way and made me feel like I was part of the story, but, ultimately, stumbled over his own words. This book had the potential to be like the first, though he didn’t quite pull it off. Its main problem was that it simply had too much story, which translated as a complete structural mess. The plot was good, but there was just too much of it in the word count; there was enough [...]

    15. When THE HELL is this book coming out?? The first book grabbed me by the throat and threw me down and had it's way with me and I am fast becoming impatient in having it happen a second time. This better not turn into another George R.R. Martin wait! Or or or I shall be extremely vexed. VEXED I tell you!Update 11/10/2014We now haves this book and we reads it. Oh yes precious, we do and we loves it. It is the precious. The Wise Man's Fear is absolutely fantastic. Rothfuss has propelled himself t [...]

    16. Patrick Rothfuss's The Wise Man's Fear is a great continuation (book #2) of the KingKiller Chronicle. We learn much about the precocious young wizard, Kvothe, and we get more of a feel for the conflicts and turmoil of the present from which Kvothe tells his story. I kept asking myself, "How is Rothfuss going to resolve that?" I am now one of the seeming legion who are anxiously (patiently?) awaiting the final installment of the trilogy. I'm just not sure how he can do it in one book (even a big [...]

    17. I have almost 1500 SF/F books in my database, and I've probably read 500 more that I forgot to list. I have never read a book that was simultaneously so bad and so good. I suspect that as time passes I will like it less. You know when you go to the local Enormous Portions restaurant and go with the meat in the rich gravy with the fries and onion rings, and the mud pie for dessert, and a couple of drinks, and you enjoy it all. Until near the end of the meal, when you don't feel so good; then you [...]

    18. Patrick Rothfuss sang to me. Literally sang “You are my sunshine” to me last Sunday. More on that later.I didn’t want this book to end. When I was within sprinting distance of the end, I actually put the book down, bought groceries, and vacuumed the stairs. (My husband was pleasantly surprised.) I wanted so desperately to savor those last fifty pages that the parking lot at Target didn’t seem like an ideal location. Thus, I acted like a normal human for a couple hours until I could curl [...]

    19. Prologue:There was an echo of three parts. The first echo was the most obvious one. It told of promises unfullfilled, questions unanswered and time invested. It was an echo of frustration.The second echo was more subtle. A yawning of the mind reverberating through synapses untrained. It was an echo of boredom.The final echo felt like a spiral, winding its way ever downward, digging deeper into the matter of things. It was an echo of reviews within reviews within reviews.Chapter 1:"The wise man's [...]

    20. EDIT:So, I've decided to change my rating to 5 stars. How can I not when the story is so epic and my attachment to Kvothe keeps growing?! Original review: Not sure whether to rate this 4 or 5 stars yet, but I think I'll end up probably changing it to 5. There's something about these stories that you know will stay with you for a while. The more you think about it, the better it becomes. And the more you begin to love and appreciate it. I definitely preferred this instalment to the first book. Th [...]

    21. I like stories where I cannot predict what will happen next. Patrick Rothfuss writes stories like that. Good solid characters and a plot that unfolds as unpredictably as life itself.

    22. *4.5*WOW. wOwWowWOw.I can't really form sentences right now (at the time I'm writing this, I literally spent the past 15 hours reading this book. yeah), so I'll just make a couple of lists here.Things I liked (or rather loved) about the book-Kvothe-Kvothe's insane growth as a character and just as a human-Kvothe's friends (I want my very own Simmon, please + thx)-it's so fucking funny guys you have no idea-getting to see different parts of the world-getting to experience different cultures in th [...]

    23. You know that feeling when you finish a book and think "It wasn't as good as the first, i should rate it with less stars", but then think "It is still excellent, and doesn't deserve less than a perfect score" ? That's the case here. TWMF wasn't the perfect, one in a million book as was TNOTW. It didn't gave us the answers we were seeking, it didn't followed the paths we desired, it didn't even gave us a conclusion on some open fronts. But it was still a great story, and once again, Rothfuss prov [...]

    24. 1.) The Name of the Wind ★★★★★2.) The Wise Man's Fear ★★★★★2.4) The Lightning Tree ★★★★★2.5) The Slow Regard of Silent Things ★★★★★3.) Doors of Stone n/aThis review is going to contain mild spoilers and theory crafting, so I have to caution you while reading this if you are not familiar with this amazing world. “I do this so you cannot help but hear. A wise man views a moonless night with fear.”Obviously I'm being a little bit presumptuous, but I belie [...]

    25. ”Nothing in the world is harder than convincing someone of an unfamiliar truth.”I think an unfamiliar truth that would be hard convincing me about is the fact that the third book might never be released. I do have a theory, maybe the next book is actually 6000 pages long, that's why it's taking this long, right??? Nahh. Am going to put aside my thoughts and theories about the next book and talk about this book for a moment.This book starts off where book one ended and it's actually the secon [...]

    26. 4.5 starsIf, like me, you were so impressed with The Name of the Wind that you neglected all but the most pressing business until you turned the final page, you may have decided to give it a quick re-read in anticipation of the sequel. If you did, you probably spotted this quote in Chapter 43:There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.After a long but worthwhile wait, we now have the second novel in The Kingkiller Chronicle, an [...]

    27. I finished this last nightlly. While there are moments in this book of brilliant writing they are (for me) interspersed with LLLLOOONNNGGG stretches of yawningly boring prose. Had the book been maybe two thirds it's length I think it could have been better.Without spoilers I found that the story of Kvothe wanders along getting almost nowheres I know we established some more of it here, but not a lot and we're about where we were in a lot of ways. The story in the book's "present" is just as anno [...]

    28. I thought that I had reached my limit of disliking the main character and the rambling story in the first book, but this took things to a WHOLE new level. I decided to read this because I was confused by the first book's high ratings and wanted to see if anything improved in the sequel.But guess what? Kvothe's still here. AND HE'S STILL BETTER THAN YOU.Instead of repeating my previous review about this special snowflake/Gary Stu, let me just leave the actual book description here:"My name is Kvo [...]

    29. OK Kvothe is always making the most stupid decisions. But now it's been two days since I finished this book and I MISS HIM. I need the third installment and I know I won't get it anytime soon.

    30. Update 10/8/17:Re-Read with buddies!I'm pretty much exactly where I was the first time I read it. It reads like a wonderful dream and I could keep immersing myself in this story FOREVER. There's no real point where I ever get tired of anything. The text is not only clear, it's mythological and astounding and I frankly love how Kvothe keeps on adding his skills indefinitely. Sure, he's an unreliable narrator but there's so damn much that he has done, so it's really hard to separate the truth as h [...]
