The Name of the Wind
By Patrick Rothfuss
Quite simply one of my favorite books. When I first read TNotW I wound up having to call in sick to work because I couldn’t put it down and was up all night. The main character is a Sorcerer named Kvothe. He is telling the story of his life to a historian so the tale goes back and forth between the past and the present. Unlike some books that use flashbacks, in this one it is always very clear which you’re reading about. The sequel “The Wise Man’s Fear” was released in 2011 and yeah I loved that too. I also recommend checking out his blog at www.patrickrothfuss.com he’s pretty entertaining.
“My name is Kvothe, pronounced nearly the same as “quothe.” Names are important as they tell you a great deal about a person. I’ve had more names than anyone has a right to. “
