"Good but not as good as the First one..."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

After waiting for what seemed to be a very long time, we have the second instalment of the Kvothe trilogy. On first impressions it is the most beautiful book I have ever seen, just lovely, like you want to mount it on the wall and will brutally eviscerate anyone who disagrees that it is truly lovely. But to the more important things… The words, the story, the continuation of the legend… Without giving it all away of course. Kvothe learnt a lot in the first book, called the wind, hatched some crafty plots, killed ‘dragons’ and such, as well as having all of his family killed… Not that much happens in this one. Half way through the first book I realised that there was no way this would be a stand alone book (plus it said so inside the cover) and the second book makes me wonder if the trilogy will in fact be a mathematically accurate one. I always thought that after the story in the bar you'd have him going out and doing some more stuff, but with the current rate of events it seems he might need to say up all night telling stories to be anywhere up to the places where he should be. However that said… It is a large book, I did blow off two job interviews because I was reading it and probably didn't get the third job because I was reading it during the interview. If you've read the first one you're going to buy it no matter what, if you haven't read the first one go read it and then you'll read the second one no matter what. I'm waiting till I can order the third one from MightyApe, because as soon as it's out I'm going to be calling in sick days.

"As wonderful as the First."
5 stars"

Simply could not put it down. I read and read and read. I wont detail any of the story, but if you enjoyed the first one, you will not be disappointed.

"A superb sequel."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

After waiting years for this book to come out, it is 100% worth the wait. Impossible to put down. This series will definitely become one of the greatest fantasy saga's of all time.

Sequel to the extraordinary THE NAME OF THE WIND, THE WISE MAN'S FEAR is the second installment of this superb fantasy trilogy from Patrick Rothfuss. Picking up the tale of Kvothe Kingkiller once again, we follow him into exile, into political intrigue, courtship, adventure, love and magic …and further along the path that has turned Kvothe, the mightiest magician of his age, a legend in his own time, into Kote, the unassuming pub landlord. Packed with as much magic, adventure and home-grown drama as THE NAME OF THE WIND, this sequel is in every way the equal of its predecessor and a must-read for all fantasy fans. Readable, engaging and gripping THE WISE MAN'S FEAR is the biggest and the best new fantasy novel on the market.

Author Biography

Patrick Rothfuss had the good fortune to be born in Wisconsin in 1973, where the long winters and lack of cable television encouraged a love of reading and writing. After abandoning his chosen field of chemical engineering, Pat became an itinerant student, wandering through clinical psychology, philosophy, medieval history, theater, and sociology. Nine years later, Pat was forced by university policy to finally complete his undergraduate degree in English. When not reading and writing, he teaches fencing and dabbles with alchemy in his basement.
