it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy, favorites, re-read, coming-of-age

On the second read, Name of the Wind is still a brilliant first novel, a highly enjoyable and nearly perfectly drawn prelude for the series. Kvothe has all the real arrogance of youth and overconfident swagger of a young man who we know will clearly, in some way, be broken.

First Read: October 19, 2008. One of the best written, most precisely plotted and engaging Fantasy novels I've read. Very strongly recommended.

William This is the first part -- the only complete part -- of a trilogy. It's excellent!
