I had to read this book twice because I didn't take the time to enjoy it thoroughly first time around. That was my fault as I rushed it. This is a book that you need to take your time over, drink in every sumptuous paragraph and enjoy the author's slow unwinding of the tale. It really is beautifully written and I never appreciated that until I decided to give it a second go because of the extraordinarily good reviews on this site. Big learning curve for me and a big thumb's up for Mr Rothfus. :-) ( )

Patrick Rothfuss' acclaimed novel The Name of the Wind has perhaps one of the highest average ratings of all the books on Goodreads (4.55), with almost 250,000 5-star ratings. Nothing could go wrong with such a novel ... or can it? I'm very difficult to convince with fantasy novels; few authors within this genre (namely [a:J.K. Rowling|1077326|J.K. Rowling|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1415945171p2/1077326.jpg], [a:George R.R. Martin|346732|George R.R. Martin|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1351944410p2/346732.jpg] and [a:Mari Ronberg|3482534|Mari Ronberg|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png]) have so far managed to hook me right from the first chapter without losing their quality throughout the course of their novel(s). In this book, Patrick Rothfuss focuses on the fate of his protagonist Kvothe in a clever, thoughtfully structured coming-of-age story about his difficult youth, his teens and early adolescence, after which the second part of the trilogy will pick up to recount later parts of his life. As it turned out, the first installment in the Kingkiller trilogy was way more difficult to get through than I originally thought after reading about positive comparisons between TNotW and the Harry Potter books.

Which leads me directly to main parts of my criticism: the similarities to Harry Potter. I tried hard, really hard not to constantly compare those two books with each other, but too much reminded me of Hogwarts in this book, and those similarities were not always in favor of TNotW. First of all, the world-building in this novel is intriguing, though not extraordinary. The author didn't include any reasons for caring about the world, so that ultimately I wouldn't have been in tears if an earthquake had shattered this world completely.

Secondly, the character development of the protagonist, who is also the first-person narrator of the tale which is incorporated in the framework plot, is what main parts of this book are about, yet so many other characters included in this book lack originality and varying aspects which could help to find reasons to care about them at all. If I am honest, I was disappointed by the cast of characters. We have Kvothe - the most well-developed character of the book - and Denna, a mysterious and unique female protagonist who is superbly introduced and implemented into the story ... and apart from them, I can't even recall most of the other characters' names.
And this is exactly the point when I can't help but compare this book to Rowling's Harry Potter world.

The similarities are rather obvious (and I won't even mention how Kvothe might be called a second Harry): What is called Hogwarts in HP, can be found as the University here. Everybody knows Draco Malfoy - but few know he has a twin brother with different looks, but very similar manners called Ambrose in this book. Of course, we have other characters: Simmon and Wilem, who were introduced as Kvothe's friends and might have had the potential to turn into interesting characters and good friends for Kvothe. The latter they did, yet they remained stereotypical and like blank pieces of paper. Patrick Rothfuss also introduces a bunch of female characters, all of them unmemorable and boring (with the exception of Auri who might have more potential in the upcoming novels). And last but not least, there are the teachers of the University. In Hogwarts, we have Snape, Lupin, Hagrid, McGonagall, Trelawney, Filch ... all of them memorable figures every HP reader should have no trouble with connecting to their specific characteristics. And in The Name of the Wind ... it was simply impossible to feel interested in any of the teachers. Maybe someone else felt different about this aspect, but I wasn't able to pretend interest in even one of them.

However, if you feel in the mood for it, you might just as well find hundreds of similarities between J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels and Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. I don't accuse Patrick Rothfuss of copying certain plotlines, because all those aspects are rather common in fantasy novels and I don't think for even one minute that Rothfuss looked at the Harry Potter novels and thought, "this looks nice, I might use it for my own book". No, my reason for listing these lies mainly in my personal feeling that The Name of the Wind was not very original and did not live up to its hype. Feel free to disagree with me.

Patrick Rothfuss has a lot of adventure, romance and violence to offer in his book. We get to care about Kvothe early one because what happens to him helps us relate to his character, but there was nothing specifically outstanding about the character himself. What convinced me of awarding at least three stars was the well-developed plot, the atmosphere of the University itself and the romance part which felt natural to the story and as a requirement for the characters to develop into what they later became.

(Initially after reading the novel, I was still ready to give it 3.5 stars, but more than a month after finishing it, the impression it left on me is so vanishingly low that I can't award more than three stars for the positive aspects I outlined in my review.)

I do realize that my review is not written very objectively, but since I wasn't able to find literary significance in this work, I ultimately decided to center my review around my subjective thoughts. Most of you will think differently about the book - after all, just look at the average rating -, so just keep in mind that this is my personal opinion and all of you can feel free to love the book as much as most of you do.

What I liked about this book:

Character development: I liked the way he develops both his primary and secondary characters. They don't just say things that advance the plot, they are play their parts well. I remember stopping several times to enjoy the interaction with relatively minor characters.

Humor: It's a reasonably witty novel, I found myself chuckling both at the banter between the characters and also at some of the soliloquy observations of the main POV characters.

Page turner: While I was reading this book several friends and associates noticed me not wanting to put the book down (when I got home, when I got to work ... I figure that's a good thing).

What I thought could have been improved:

A couple of times in the book the author mentions relatively modern concepts such as 'germs' which feel like they're out of place in the medieval setting (even with the existence of magic). I didn't spot anything that would really explain these discrepancies and found them slightly jarring. ( )

AND I AM FINALLY FINISHED WITH THE NAME OF THE WIND! Whew! That took me forever to do. Seriously guys. I started this book in September of this year for the book club that I started with friends and family.

Aaron had been trying to get me to read this book for about a year and it was finally chosen. I can't even start to explain to you the feels this book made me have. I sobbed, I laughing for days, and I had to take many breaks from how much it broke my heart. This book was a gambit of so many emotions, characters, and places. It was beautifully written. Like poetry.

"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."

This book is only part one in a three part series following Kvothe through his life. The next in the series is The Wise Man's Fear. It is over 1,000 pages and I know that it will take me a while to read. If it is anything like the first book. I am also scared to read the second one, because apparently Rothfuss is taking his sweet ass time writing the 3rd in the series. I really hate unfinished series, especially since people have been waiting for over 10 years! ( )

I had seen this on multiple websites, high on various fantasy reading lists and it did not disappoint me. The story within a story presentation is one that hooks me every time and the character of Kvothe is a very sympathetic one to me.

I loved the book and I am looking forward to reading the next one in the series.

While I still would have preferred the print version of the book, the audio version was very well done and Nick Podehl, the narrator, does an amazing job bringing the characters and the story to life. ( )
