I actually liked this book better than Name of the Wind (the first of the series), which is pretty rare for a sequel. I am not sure why but it certainly helped that this book spent much less time talking about Kvothe's lady love Denna. Sure, she was a major part of this book too, but their relationship does not fit into the classic trope that I mentioned in my review for Name of the Wind.
The other thing that absolutely thrilled me about this book was the way that meeting the Cthaeh changes how the reader understands the narrative of the book. I don't want to give away too much of the story (in case I manage to forget it and read the book again), but the short interaction with the Cthaeh really changed how I was reading the book. It made me even more interested in the path being taken by Kvothe rather than just wanting to connect the story Kvothe to the Waystone Inn Kote. I really liked that.
