Download Ô The Name of the Wind ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook 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 travelin. As an avid adult fantasy reader out of all the books that I ve been recommended The Name of the Wind has always been recommended to me the most Google Goodreads book reviewing sites 9gag even some people who don t read a lot of fantasy books they have all praised the series highly and now that I ve read it it s in my opinion that the fame is totally well deserved there s no doubt that this is truly a fantastic high fantasy bookIn terms of plot overview the book is simplistic enough Kvothe Kingkiller Kvothe the Bloodless Kvothe the Arcane the man of many names tells the story of his life to the Chronicler who will write Kvothe s entire chronicle starting from his childhood up to his present life as an innkeeper in Waystone Inn Kvothe will tell the entire chronicle of his life within three days and The Name of the Wind encompassed Day One of his storytelling That s it that s really the basic premise of the story you can even call this novel a high fantasy memoir if you want It s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head Always All the time That story makes you what you are We build ourselves out of that story Picture Tarbean by Dan dos SantosIf you haven t read this book yet you re probably wondering why this book became one of the most highly acclaimed fantasy books of our time Honestly I have to agree that it s seriously one of the best out there it s simply amazing and there are a lot of factors in the book that worked so well harmoniously towards producing that result However there s one single element in the book that excels above all the othersIs it the charactersCould be The Name of the Wind is thoroughly a character driven book and if the characters weren t well written the book would pretty much be screwed The whole book is told solely from Kvothe s perspective it s written in third person POV for the present timeframe shifting to first person POV during the flashback seuences which means you ll be seeing the first person POV often than the other Trust me they are extremely well written Kvothe is a memorable character and his narrative is wonderfully compelling to read The Name of the Wind is his coming of age tale covering his life from the time he was eight years old up to his fifteenth year When we are children we seldom think of the future This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind We will read about Kvothe s struggle during this period of time and how his life was an ever changing cycle fortune and disaster Plus the addition of empathizing side characters such as Bast Simmone Elodin and Auri made the book even intriguing However I have to say no it s not the incredibly well written characters that dazzled the most to meIs it the world buildingWell it s true that the world building of Temerant is tremendous and intricately crafted The currency mythology legends songs and a uniue magic system called Sympathy felt so real and believable to me they enhanced the immersive and vivid nature of the narrative And yet no it s not the world buildingWhat is it then the actionNo don t come into this book expecting a lot of battle or war scenes because you ll most likely be disappointed The narration is extremely engaging and also intense in some places but there are approximately only twenty pages of battle scenes in total The Name of the Wind will not pull you into the usual grand tale of Good vs Evil where the main story revolves around the protagonists struggle against the villains to save the world So no it s not the actionIt s music the part that captivated me than anything else in the book was its depiction of music Music is a proud temperamental mistress Give her the time and attention she deserves and she is yours Slight her and there will come a day when you call and she will not answer So I began sleeping less to give her the time she needed There s a huge emphasis on music right from the beginning of the story all the way to the end No matter what the genre we read we are all obsessed with music Music is vastly integral to the overall uality of the book it s insane how beautifully written the depiction of music and sounds are I could see the way the fingers and strings dance to form the music I could hear the audience in the tavern cheering when Kvothe played the lute vigorously I could hear the silence of the crowd when Kvothe stopped playing and most of all I could feel the emotions oozing out of the audience through the music music that was created specifically through words and letters One of my favorite scenes in The Name of the Wind is when The Lay of Sir Savien Traliard a legendary tragic ballad composed by the most famous Edema Ruh was performed It s so masterfully written and right now in my head I have my own perception of how this song should sound I can t wait to see how that perception compares to Lin Manuel Miranda s rendition of this song in the upcoming TV series adaptation of this novelPicture Playing For His Pipes by Dan dos SantosIt s a tricky business to find the right formula to unify all these magnificent elements in a book especially with music being one of them But Rothfuss managed to do itHow did he achieve the superb balance for all those factorsSuperlative prose Seriously I can t stress this highly enough Rothfuss s writing style is unuestionably phenomenal there s a glimpse of grace in almost every word you ll read in the book Without Rothfuss s prose The Name of the Wind would probably receive a 2 or 3 stars rating at most from me Patrick Rothfuss is a master craftsman with words and his prose deserves only the highest of praise from me There is a myriad of uotable or should I say Kvothable statements and phrases throughout the story that made me feel like writing them all down in my notebook and yes I did Words are pale shadows of forgotten names As names have power words have power Words can light fires in the minds of men Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts It s meticulous brilliantly unputdownable elegant lyrical and poetic It s evident how the fourteen years of revision and editing brought fruition to this absolutely marvelous resultBy the end of this book I realized The Name of the Wind has immersed me in an intricate role play situation Through reading this book I became than myself I am not just the reader who read a masterpiece called The Name of the Wind I am not the Chronicler who wrote Kvothe s journey and I am not Kvothe s loyal apprentice I am the one they call Reshi Bloodless Six String and I am the I in the chronicle My name is Kvothe you may have heard of me Now I encourage you to read my storyPicture The Name of the Wind by Marc SimonettiYou can order the book from Book Depository Free shipping You can find the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions

Download Ô The Name of the Wind ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook 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 wiza. I have no interest in imagining I m someone who is stronger deadlier smarter sexier etc than myself a famed hero in a miltoast world little different from modern North America I read fantasy to immerse myself in strange worlds ripe with danger and conflict To uncork primal wonders And there is none of that in Rothfuss book His world is about as strange and dangerous as a mashed potato sandwich His protagonist is comically overblown wish fullfillment for people who weren t popular in college I m absolutely mystified that this novel is so highly regarded by so manyI welcome fans of the book to explain its appeal Specifically Writing uality I found the uality of the prose very poor Cliches abound the author tells rather than shows and the language is neither poetic nor elegant So for those who find the writing uality high I d like to hear some examples of writing they feel is poor uality Content I have no interest in wish fullfilment in fiction So what other content does this novel offer me as a reader Is there something in the plot or setting that makes this novel stand out to you as exceptional

I ll give this 5 with no begrudging I m pretty easy with my 5 they re not reserved for the best book I ve ever read just very good books I thought The Name of the Wind was very good I read it in what for me was a very short span of time it had that ish uality that best sellers needCan I see what makes this the single best selling epic fantasy for a generation apart from George Martin s series No Excepting that perhaps the lesson is that to be head and shoulders above your competition in sales all you need is to be better by a nose after that the non linear dynamics of the market take over and elevate you to godhoodI loved the writing and that s very important to me Rothfuss often treads the thin line between prose and poetry and fortunately it s excellent poetry that he brushes up against The uality of the writing breathes magic into even fairly ordinary scenes and makes some of the important ones extraordinaryThe story itself is mostly compelling It uses the reverse of the device I saw recently in Blood Song of a framing story that s not in the first person delivering up a first person narrative Our hero Kvothe has bags of attitude and is a total genius at everything To balance out his all power we have his poverty bad luck tendency to dig himself into a hole and his powerful enemies Kvothe s real powerful enemy sits in the background as a motivator presumably story for books 2 3 while his school boy adversary at the university fills in for bad guy for most of the bookLike Blood Song and many other really successful books TNOTW is at its core a school story Harry Potter Wizard of Earthsea etc all feature magic schools for Blood Song and Enders Game it was a battle school but the point is that the schools lessons masters combo sells bucket loads if you write it really well and plumb it into a compelling larger pictureWith magic the school system also provides a painless way of educating your readers in the magic system you have by virtue of it being delivered through formal education elected to useWas there anything wrong with it For me the whole and then I broke another string and I was very hungry and dirty in Tarbean sections were rather slow and lengthy I understand their role in the story but they felt overplayed And at the end the whole business with the draccus felt tangential and diluted the endgame for me But no nothing of great significanceA final observation throughout the book we like Kvothe are constantly aware of money Kvothe s poverty is a driver and source of tension He is constantly coming into money losing it incurring costs We almost know the contents of his purse at any time and the price of all his needs To me this was very reminiscent of Dostoyevsky s work and to a lesser extent Dickens where a similar focus on the number of coins in our character s pocket is maintained and the need to cover their expenses drives much of the storyIn short though given the impossible level of expectation built up by years of hearing how incredible this book is the text made a very good attempt to live up to its reputation Join my 3 emails a year newsletter prizes
