Gorgeously written. As good as the first one, if not better. Kvothe's adventures are vivid & real, and Ambrose Jekis is a moron.
This is the second book in the Kingkiller series. Not quite as good as the first, but it has its moments. In this one Kvothe gets a little randy, with several people and one faerie. The whole Felurian bit seemed to drag for me, but all in all not too bad. Really looking forward to Doors of Stone...

Ugh. Name of the Wind was a fabulous, detailed, rich beginning to a promising fantasy series. Wise Man's Fear is slow, indulgent, and ultimately pointless. It makes me fear that Rothfuss has no idea where he's going with this.
