One of my favorite fantasy books in recent years. It's a coming of age, slobs vs snobs wizard school epic. I hate to compare it to Harry Potter, but it's got a lot of similarities (It's not like JK Rowling invented them). The difference is solid, compelling writing, interesting characters and gritty realism (in a fantasy world). So to sum up: Harry Potter + Quality = Name of the Wind.
