Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 28 hours 4 minutes


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. "It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing...with true music in the words....Wherever Pat Rothfuss goes...he'll carry us with him as a good singer carries us through a song." - Ursula K. Le Guin, bestselling author and winner of the National Book Award

    Have already read this book so many times now, looking for tips for the last book, every time I find something new. Excellent writer, great narrator. Simply love this series, can't wait for the last book.

    Wonderful story. Excellent narration. Felt a little rushed in parts, but loved it nonetheless.

    Amazing books! They are so good that we buy them and hand them out to our best friends (ok well, sometimes complete strangers!) I really enjoy the world that Mr Rothfus has created. I have read them all (more than once) and started a road trip and these are the books I want to accompany me. The narrator is sometimes difficult to understand, but very good at switching roles.

  • Bruce A

    Great book, very well written. The descriptions provided by the author make you close your eyes for a brief moment attempting to place yourself in that scene. So much mystery and questions surround this booking leaving you yearning for more.

  • Patrick R

  • Robert H

    Never mind the negative reviews. This is a great book with FANTASTIC narration. Sure it's a bit predictable, but it's well written and paced pretty well. I'd enjoyed it thoroughly!
