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.
Praise for The Kingkiller Chronicle:

“Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous.”
—Terry Brooks, New York Times-bestselling author of Shannara

    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.

    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.

    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!
