New favorite fantasy series. I would describe it as a book in between Game Of Thrones and Harry Potter. ( )
  Bookie379 | Apr 16, 2021 |
I've been wavering between four and five stars for this, and so considered 4.5 stars as the middle ground and was willing to round up thanks to how accessible and engaging the book was. (As an aside, I want to posit that while 5 whole stars isn't granular enough, people that rank in tenths of a star are obnoxious.) Writing this review, however, convinced me that the book isn't quite great enough not to deduct a star, so I'm rounding down instead.

This book would be a solid 3 star book, losing a star thanks to writing a nearly 800 page book with yet another story about a boy magician going to magic school - and no, five years of traveling with a circus and living on the streets did not make up for that - except that his non-subtle trick of alluding to legend and then working backwards kept me captivated. That alone accounts for a star, as gimmicky though it is.

The rest of the stars come from a number of compelling narratives and characters in the book. The system of magic working through the brain and through physics was a wonderful touch and gave a good amount of weight to Sympathy. While not completely supplanting the obtuse difficulty of Grossman's magical system (especially given that the lead character of Rothfuss' book is annoyingly good at everything, which will come back to haunt us later on in this review), the mind compartmentalization and use of the first law of thermodynamics made for a superior and more tangible magic system to all the finger, wand and staff waving of most fantasy novels. I'm not as convinced by the idea of names having power, but as the book barely delved into the concept, I will reserve criticism.

The main character that engaged me considerably was Denna. Simultaneously sexist and feminist, the duality of her character and her relationship with Kvothe left me consistently curious and wanting to know more about her. I don't feel like calling her character's role either sexist or feminist is quite right, as Rothfuss wants you to know that it's the world that is sexist, and that in a sexist world, options are limited for a woman. And yet, as independent as he wants to paint her, she's also very dependant on those around her, and attracts suiters as much for her looks as her charm. (Not that she can ever truly be described, as Kvothe cops out by saying, before his student harps on about her ears.) As by example, she's allegedly an accomplished singer, but she is described singing only once in over 700 pages. Still, I found Kvothe's obsession with Denna and his reluctance in pursuing her to be compelling, and I enjoyed her role in the book all the same.

My other favorite part of this novel is the myth building that Rothfuss uses. Not only the myth of its lead character, but also the Christian inspired religious story concerning the son of Tehlu and the demon he sacrifices himself to kill, as well as the mystical history of the primary antagonists of the story, the Chandrians. Though it doesn't take up much space in the book, I thought his consideration in building up a religion and myths was deftly handled and highly enjoyable.

So why one star removed? I alluded to some problems above, and they're severe enough not to be ignored. Most of the book is about Kvothe's edification, which is a mechanic as old as time in coming of age stories, but Rothfuss spends far too much time in the University in particular. Granted, it's not Harry Potter with sixish books of schooling, but it still feels overwrought to the point where I couldn't help but wonder if he couldn't have shaved a few hundred pages off. Even Kvothe's three years living on the streets, while interesting, seemed more episodic than character or narrative forming. By the time he's settled in the University, he chums with his friends as if he had an average upbringing, except he's poor. I'm not sure how many of you keen eyed readers realized that, but Kvothe is very poor. His only other distinguishing trait is that he's good at EVERYTHING. Which brings me to criticism number two...

A major theme of the book is that Kvothe is not just a magician, but a performer. A musician! And not just any musician... He brings his listeners to tears. And did you know that he's smart too? Schools will pay HIM tuition. And in case being a master magician won't be enough, the book tells us he'll be a master swordsman eventually too.

I can appreciate that Kvothe himself is the central myth that Rothfuss is creating in his trilogy, and as such, he needs to be exceptional. But the problem is that Kvothe is barely anything BUT exceptional. Harry Potter was incredibly entitled, but he wasn't the smartest kid in the room (though he was the most magically athletic, apparently). Quentin Coldwater was one of the smartest guys in the room, but he had a brutal work ethic born from crippling depression. Hobbits are really short and pudgy. If Kvothe has any fault, it's a thick head (figuratively and literally); his arrogance outweighs his intelligence from time to time, but even that doesn't stop him from being exceptional again and again. It's hard to tell if his music serves any purpose other than showing how amazing he is and being the occasional plot device. He has many misfortunes, but even they are mere catalysts to add to his legend. Legends should be incredible, yes, but Kvothe is so incredible that it begs incredulity.

Still, despite my criticisms, the good parts of The Name of the Wind far outweigh its worst parts. It's an easy book to enjoy and it was a pleasure to read. Rothfuss is about as subtle as an elephant, but for the most part that lack of subtlety favors the book more than otherwise. Still, occasionally I would be appreciative if Rothfuss showed a little more restraint. It would save some pages and lead to a more believable main character. ( )

It is rare that I find myself drawn into an epic fantasy story so quickly, but once I started reading this novel it became almost impossible to put down. Rothfuss references just enough of the classics of the fantasy genre (bards, magical semi-human beings, dark forces, mythologies, magical academics) to get old school fans in the door, yet still adds his own flair with a well-thought out magical system to get some new fans as well. The driving force, though, is clearly his characters. He balances some we are barely introduced to (such as Bast, a human-passing fey) with others who quickly become main characters (like the mysterious and alluring Denna), and ties them all together with the protagonist, Kvothe, who tells the story of his life as the vehicle for the novel. Being the first novel in the proposed trilogy, we aren't given much of the present storyline besides the bare minimum, but by the end of the book it is clear that Rothfuss has placed Kvothe's telling at this specific time for some reason that has to do with the Chandrian or possibly the resurgence of magic in the world. I'm quite looking forward to the next two novels, which are sure to be even more fantastic as the young Kvothe continues his magical training at the Arcanum and the elder reestablishes his past while tackling present-day magical dilemmas.

Initially, Patrick Rothfuss’s fantasy novel The Name of the Wind drifts along at the pace of a gentle breeze. But it races like a tempest by the end.

The story starts slowly because Rothfuss sets it up as a tale within a tale. The first few chapters are in third person, hinting at larger events while introducing us to Kote (an innkeeper in a small town), Bast (Kote’s assistant), and Chronicler (a traveling scribe). Chronicler identifies Kote as Kvothe, a legendary magician, and offers to transcribe his life’s story. Kvothe accepts, and the narration switches to first person for the rest of the book, except for occasional interludes back at his inn.

It took me a while to appreciate this structure. At first, I thought Rothfuss would have been better off jumping straight to Kvothe’s point of view and his retelling of how he came to be a clever orphan who self-finances his education at a more adult-version of Hogwarts. Because that story has lots to recommend it: a distinctive, self-reliant protagonist; a convincing magic system; a larger mystery to unravel (concerning why Kvothe lost his parents)—good stuff all around.

For much of the book, though, the scenes in the inn didn’t seem particularly necessary. But as the main narrative proceeds, the interludes allow Rothfuss to drop clues about what’s in store and interject a joke or two. More importantly, the presence of these scenes makes the novel’s inconclusive ending more palatable: when Kvothe agreed to share his story, he warned Chronicler it would take three days to tell in full, and the first day’s recording amounts to the 600+ pages in The Name of the Wind. Days two and three (presumably) require separate books.

A lesser author wouldn’t get away with this. But Rothfuss’s writing is strong (aside from some occasional comma abuse), Kvothe is a hero worth rooting for, and the final sequences are exhilarating. So, like Bast and Chronicler, I’m eager for another day’s tale—I’ve already started reading The Wise Man’s Fear, the sequel to The Name of the Wind.

Rollicking great fun - another magic-school story, yes, but as rich and satisfying as everything that has come before in the genre. A big blockbuster book that actually made me laugh, cry, and cheer (well, not loudly, but you get the idea). ( )
