DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND

My name is Kvothe.

I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

You may have heard of me.

So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature-the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

A spellbinding intro into the trilogy, rich in storytelling and detail!

R. Hußmann, Thalia-Buchhandlung Bergisch Gladbach

An innkeeper and his apprentice, that's what one is supposed to find. But Chronicler knows better. He has come to the legendary Kvothe to write down his story - the truth and not all the stories that have evolved around time. The stories are exaggerated of course and a lot of them pure fiction, but Kvothes' real story is anything but plain and simple... It might not sound that enthralling. Someone sitting in an inn and telling his lifetime story. But it actually is! Rothfuss has such a brilliant way of creating a story in a story, of stetting things up in a tavern just to immediately pull you out again and into the world he has created. Kvothes story is honest up to the very last detail and yet so moving and engaging that I couldn't stop reading. I have to admit though that the book takes it's time to really get rolling, especially when Kvothe describes what happened to him the first years after his encounter with of the Chandrian. And it is also not a novel to read in a day or two during your coffee break. This story demands time and attention of the reader. BUT good stories take their time to be told and when you decide to stick with it you will be rewarded a thousand times! What I enjoyed most was that every time when I had been consumed by Kvothes story, some event (like a visitor) would draw me back into the tavern, reminding me that I am as well just a listener to a story. It is very well made (not at all in a way that bothers you while reading). But the thing I liked best about the book is that the prologue is repeated at the end. It was such a nice experience because it really send of the feeling that the story has been wrapped into these words. It also gave the notion that this was the first part of the story, a little bit like a play on stage being cut into acts. Very well done.

Epischer Auftakt

David Eichhorn, Thalia-Buchhandlung Karlsruhe

Patrick Rothfuss` ausgezeichnetes Erstlingswerk ist ein originelles Stück Fantasy. Komplett aus der Ich- Perspektive erzählt es die Lebensgeschichte eines außergewöhnlichen Mannes und ist der spannende Auftakt einer Trilogie, die noch so einiges verspricht. Eine absolute Empfehlung für alle, die gute Fantasy mögen!

Schon lange habe ich kein Buch mehr gelesen, welches einen so eleganten Schreibstil aufweist und trotzdem nicht hochgestochen wirkt. Kvothe ist ein Held, der auf Anhieb sympatisch ist. Er ist zwar mächtig, hat aber Fehler und Schwächen, die in nahbarer machen als andere Helden. Die Geschichte ist so genial aufgegleist, ich habe es einfach so verschlungen. Den zweiten Band 'Wise mans fear" habe ich ebenfalls schon gelesen, genauso gut. Jetzt warte ich, wie so viele andere auf den dritten Band, der hoffentlich bald mal kommen wird.

Rothfuss verfügt über ein irrsinniges Erzähltalent und das nützt er von der ersten Seite weg aus. Sprachlich auf überaus hohem Niveau lockt er seine Leser in Kvothes Welt. Mit einer Liebe fürs Detail erschafft er eine fantastische Geschichte, die nicht nur von ihren intelligenten und stichhaltigen Beschreibungen, sondern auch von großem Amüsement lebt.

Sooo pretty!!
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 17.01.2018

The stunning cover design, the pretty deep red edge and the beautiful black & white illustrations make this book the perfect gift for every "Kingkiller Chronicles"-fan (or fan-to-be ;)). (for the 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)
