After a long wait, the sequel to The Name of the Wind arrives. Too bad the latest book is immensely padded; the main portion of the book finds the main character Kvothe going away from the academy, picking up experience points, losing his virginity and levelling up certain skills. By the end of this small-dog killing tome, we're pretty much at the same place as we started, and I'm highly skeptical Rothfuss can finish the series in the next book, as yet another fantasy writer is set upon with Jordan-itis.

Dave After a long wait, the sequel to The Name of the Wind proves to be a disappointment. Immensely padded, as Kvothe takes a trip outside his school, picking up experience points and losing his virginity and leveling up skills, by the end of this thousand pager small-dog-killer of a book, we seem pretty much to be at the same place we were when we started. Sure Rothfuss is a skilled writer, but one certainly expected more in terms of progression. I also doubt that he'll be able to finish the story in a trilogy as planned, as Jordanitis strikes yet another fantasy writer.
