The Name of the Wind: The Kingkiller Chronicles – Patrick Rothfuss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This easily became one of my favorite books ever. This is one of those books that you sit down to start reading and realize that hours have gone by and you haven’t moved from the position you started the book in. This is definitely one of those books that you fly through because you can’t put it down and it just pulls you in.
The writing flows so naturally it doesn’t even feel like your actually reading a book that’s almost 700 pages long, and all the characters were surprisingly relatable for a book in this genre. You would think that reading a book about a man telling his life story, including seemingly mundane tasks like class and trying to earn money would be boring, but that was never the case with this book. Every word had a meaning and there was always something more to the “average” scenes than what you originally thought.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, whether they enjoy this type of fantasy or not!
