Number of Pages: 662
Reading this book aloud to my wife. This is now my 4th time through it and it is phenomenal every time. If you ever enjoyed a piece of fiction, you should give this book a try. It’s genuinely the best fantasy novel I’ve ever read.
Masterful.... There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description.
The best epic fantasy I read last year.... He’s bloody good, this Rothfuss guy
It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing...with true music in the words.
The great new fantasy writer we've been waiting for, and this is an astonishing book.
Best one in general was probably City of Miracles by RJB or The Name of the Wind
I know I'm very very late to this but I absolutely loved this book. I also read its sequel which was good but I have a lot more opinions on the second than the first. I loved the style of writing, the world, the characters. All great.
An extremely immersive story set in a flawlessly constructed world and told extremely well
This is a magnificent book.
It's not the fantasy trappings (as wonderful as they are) that make this novel so good, but what the author has to say about true, common things, about ambition and failure, art, love, and loss.
Hail Patrick Rothfuss! A new giant is striding the land.
Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous.
Jordan and Goodkind must be looking nervously over their shoulders!
The characters are real and the magic is true.

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.
