Euryanthe

The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss Why yes, yes you are! I loved every second of the journey this book has lead me on. I felt for Kvothe during his hardships, laughed with him during the happy times, cheered for him during his adventures and prayed he would grow a pair and confess his love. (Although I really disliked Denna. I thought she was a bitch and couldn't really relate to her and the stuff she has been through. I actually just wanted her to die. Maybe in the next book? :fingers crossed:)It starts off with a glimpse into the present, giving us a few choice details, enough to ask ourselves what is going on and how in the hell did a kingkiller become this shell of a man. Said shell of a man then decides to tell his story, from beginning to end, to The Chronicler. I enjoyed it immensely. I loved how, apart from interludes which are set in the present, everything was written as a story. Story of Kvothe, told by Kvothe."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 to make the minstrels weep. You may have heard of me."I loved his character. Because it is written in the way it is written I could understand him completely. Relate to him even. I was pulled into his story right at the beginning and was there with him the whole time and can't wait to check out the sequel. I imagine it has all the juicy parts. I am really curious to find out how he ended up where he ended up. This book then made a great coming-of-age story, the foundation for the things to come. “It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”Another thing I really liked is the cyclic pattern it took. It started with the silence and with the silence it ended. And needless to say that I enjoyed Mr. Rothfuss' writing. At certain times he tends to repeat adjectives, but I forgave that because the story was interesting and I could ignore lapses in language. So all in all, this is a recommendation for everyone who is a fan of fantasy. And even those who are not. :D
