I finished The Name of the Wind. What a ride! The characters and Rothfuss’ style have completely hooked me! I had to purchase The Wise Man’s Fear quickly to out what happened next. I love these books and the wonderful, careful word choice. I’m enthralled with the characters and I love the world. In The Wise Man’s Fear however, I got stuck for a bit in the land of Fae. I don’t know what happened, I just didn’t want to continue. Once I took a break, I devoured the rest of the story. I’m anticipating reading the companion story of Auri in The Slow Regard of Silent Things and, of course, buying book 3, when it’s published.
In the mean time, I’ve picked up some other recommended books and I am now enchanted with another world, the world of the Mistborn. The magic is fascinating and the books are well written enough that, when book one ended last night at after midnight, I picked up book two and kept going for another hour. Fun characters, fascinating magic and very easy to read. Looking forward reading the rest of the Mistborn series and maybe more by Brandon Sanderson.
