Told in Kvothe’s own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen. The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet’s hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.
You know I think I read the first few chapters of this novel and never finished it and I have no idea where my book went. Unless I read it at a bookstore with the intention of buying it and completely forgot about it. It’s been on my TBR list for years… I think it’s time to just buy it.
And it’s time for me to just read it. I’ve had it on my shelves for a few years now. I bought it a while back after reading some of the Game of Thrones books and was looking into something else to get stuck in.
Haha now you’re just rubbing it in. 🙂
