What can I say about this book except praise? This is the kind of high fantasy I love and adore: a complex story with complex, multilayered characters, and just enough hints about future events to keep you on the edge of your seat almost constantly. Rothfuss is a master storyteller (I wouldn't be surprised to find out he was of the Edema Ruh), and despite getting told at the very beginning of the book that Kvothe had been expelled from the university, I (incresingly desperately) kept creating scenarios in my head where he could stay there forever.
I want to find out what's going on in the world in Kvothe's present day-storyline. And I'm desperate to know more about his life, and especially about the woman.
