About this item

A hero named Kvothe, now living under an assumed name as the humble proprietor of an inn, recounts his transformation from a magically gifted young man into the most notorious wizard, musician, thief, and assassin in his world.

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, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet's hand, "The Name of the Wind" is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.

I paid twice what walmart is charging for this at my local bookseller. Aside from that, this really was a very good book. Yes a lot of the bits are clichés of the fantasy world, but they are woven together beautifully into a whole that is more than the sum of it's parts. On thing that really sets this book apart is how the story is actually told. It's told as a narration from the protagonist after the fact. We all know he going to survive his mishaps and adventures, but what makes it interesting is how he did it. There is a bit of narrative foreshadowing that fails to pay off, particularly in the "love" interest. I never felt like there was a whole lot of payoff in the relationship with Denna from all the build up, just a bit of passing fancy. But it could be building something for the next book to wow us with. My only regret: I found this book shortly after publishing. Now I have to wait years for the rest to follow.
