Read in January, 2007

this was a good diversion from the stuff I've been reading lately... however, it was a little monotone, and also kind of meandering. i realized about halfway through that judging by the pace, there would have to be at least two or three more sequels to fit in all the crap that is alluded to in the beginning when the main character starts telling his story to this "Chronicler" character.

All that said, it's clear that the Rothfuss guy has a way with words and can write some great and very imaginitive stuff from time to time and part to part. Some of the prose is very lyrical, and some of the prose is actually poems and or folk songs that come across pretty authentic... the writing about the music seems well done, too- I wouldn't be surprised if he had some kind of music background.

Anyway, a good read, a good start to a series that I might continue reading if nothing else is around when the next book comes out.

Austin I don't know. I think that might have been the effect Pat might have wanted. Give you a nice intro into a fantasitical tale then just hint and give you a large cliffhanger so you get hooked into the next book.
