Step 1 of "some people need killing," a theme we'll hear again. Then I noticed that perhaps 0. Then the author tells us that year-old Kvothe knows ten thousand songs and stories. We are told that this is possible because he and ALL his clan can always remember a song perfectly after hearing it once. We are reminded that he is the best lutenist in the world, at 16, and he even says that he is. I give Rothfuss full credit for finally telling us that there are some things Kvothe is not good at. Then he spoils it by suggesting that it's only because they don't interest him.
There's no doubt that he could become the world's best in an hour if he wanted to. Then, after all that, he makes very slow progress in the Adem way. I like the way Rothfuss leads us into thinking Kvothe is learning something from the Adem. Then he leaves them, and within a very short time he's slaughtering another dozen baddies. This time the "some people need killing" is actually spoken right out. He also crosses the continent, often on foot, carrying a heavy box full of money that never seems to get in the way or slow him down.
The antigravity properties of his new cloak were never mentioned but they must be there. Ah, the cloak. Made by Felurian. Jesus on a tricycle, can this book really have had an editor? I can't imagine that a professional editor would leave this Felurian part in the book at all, let alone at the length it is. It's time he got laid?
You can do that in two pages. He needs a magic cloak? Same thing. But no, he has to outwit a millennia-old fairy while demonstrating that despite zero experience he is already the best cocksman in history. As other have mentioned, there are a lot of cardboard characters. But the Maer is very good.
Review of Wise Man’s Fear – Book 2 of The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss
Kilvin, Hespe and some of the Adem are good. Elodin and Bast we can't decide about, but they are interesting. Auri's too weird, and seems tacked on, but no doubt she'll be important later. The Adem culture was a good piece of worldbuilding; the Severen culture OK but not great. In the end, this is just another "ridiculously talented kid from the poor side of town overcomes all obstacles, reluctantly shoulders burden of being the guy who judges everyone and slaughters many of them while women swoon at his feet. And I admit that Rothfuss has left us some broad hints that Kvothe has a lot of growing up to do.
That might fix some of the above.

Fairness: This is a genre people like, and within that genre it is an excellent book. I just don't care for the genre any more, and it's probably because I am old and have read a lot of them. LATER ADDITION: I admit that it is also possible that Rothfuss is going to stun us in book 3 with some plot developments that make everything fall into place as the characters mature, and we realize that the trilogy is some form of "with great power comes great responsibility" lesson.
View all 10 comments. Prologue: There was an echo of three parts. The first echo was the most obvious one. It told of promises unfullfilled, questions unanswered and time invested. It was an echo of frustration. The second echo was more subtle. A yawning of the mind reverberating through synapses untrained. It was an echo of boredom. The final echo felt like a spiral, winding its way ever downward, digging deeper into the matter of things.

I sat in the cinema to see the newest Johnny Depp movie, an epic 5 hour piece about film-making. I had my glases on, a six-pack of beer and my nachos.
I always had nachos.

With cheese that could stretch as long as the wheel of time. As the movie started I was excited. There he was. Johnny Depp. He entered a white room. Nobody entered a room like Johnny Depp. It was graceful, an art of walking never to be seen again. A walking dead to our modern society, lost on an island of purgatory.
In the white room a simple chair awaited Johnny and there he sat. As simple as that. Sat there like noone else could, beautifully, but without moving again. After two hours of watching Johnny Depp sitting in 3D, I fell asleep and found myself transported into the white room. Nobody asked a question as eloquently as Johnny Depp.
You do nothing since 2 hours, you just sit there! Where's the movie? Can't it just be beautiful without anything happening? It's a movie about movie-making and therefore it needs no real movie. Wait a minute. It is my dream, isn't it? You ask yourself why you're talking to me, when you could talk to, let's say, a sexy actress? You know how they are, you don't wanna mess with them.

Wow, this Johnny Depp was a fantastic actor! So, what do you want to talk about?

The Black Swan? She's one of my favourite characters there. For somebody who doesn't know how to start, you wrote a lot already. Do you think somebody is still reading at this time? I know him.
He's great, we're Facebook friends! That Johnny Depp is really sleight of hand, if you ask me. Look at his status update: Still at the university, took a term off to work for a foreign government. Did a lot of camping there, picked up karate and a new language, got laid a lot. Fun summer.

This seems to be great content for a nice novella of pages. Get your shit together! You just said "shit" on a public review. So, one last question, Natalie. If you know Kvothe, why is he so irresistable to women in the book. I mean He's just great, it doesn't have to be logical.

You know, it's still called fantasy. What good is a review, where you review nothing? If you like a story without story, then you like a review without review. And if you don't like the review, you may not like the story and therefore like the review.
I can't loose," said the reviewer. The first part was a rustling of pages, of future deeds and revelations. It was a hope of satisfaction. The second part was a quickening of pace, of new places and faces.
