it was amazing

Just great storytelling... It takes fantasy and magic and makes them both new.

ONE YEAR LATER (almost to the day)...

I can't believe my review of this book was so short! The reason for this update is to say that I still think about this book all the time and recommend it to everyone who is a Reader. I'm reading Game of Thrones right now and I've made note of some similarities in the tone of the two novels.

The major point that the first two books of the Kingkiller Chronicle have going for them over this first book of the Song of Ice and Fire, I think, is that Rothfuss's tale is told from a single point of view. So it's scope is much narrower, but the experience is richer. I fell under the spell of Kvothe's story immediately.

And so will you.
