Review of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

The Name of the Wind tells the story of how a boy called Kvothe came to be one of the great legends of his time.

It probably won’t come as a surprise that I like this book a lot, since I am the one who added it to the Collection. I have already read both books in the series twice, and I strongly suspect this will not be the last time I return to them.

Is The Name of the Wind a perfect book? No, by no means. And yet, I love the characters so much that I am willing to look past its flaws. For a more extensive review of this series, read in our Collection Post why I think it deserves to be added to the Collection.
