:: The Name of the Wind

The Name of the Wind is an amazing book -- gorgeous flowing prose, a plot that draws you in and along, places so vividly described you'd swear he'd actually been there, and characters so three-dimensional -- not just Kvothe but all the secondary characters as well -- that you feel as if you've actually met them, not just read about them. Both the world and the people that he creates are so real that almost immediately you fall into the story, forget you're reading and feel rather that you're living it, seeing events with your own eyes. It's rare writing that drills straight into the imagination like that without (apparently) needing to pass through the eyes or requiring translation by the brain. Like you're mainlining the story. I'm in awe of his skill. On to Book 2 immediately! (And then of course the Big Wait, because part 3 isn't out yet. I hate waiting. Grrr. Curse you, Patrick Rothfuss!!)
