brian tanabe Just read Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind. Wow. If you love fantasy, give this a try. I don't want to compare it to other fantasy greats, but to give you an idea of which ones I think are great: Tolkien, Sword of Truth (Goodkind), Brooks (Sword of Shannara and quite possibly that whole trilogy), and Salvatore (IceWind Dale Trilogy). Nor do I want to compare to other great books in general, but I have loosely called it the Ender's Game of fantasy. This is a phenomenal fantasy novel.

Gus (tweaqslug) | 1 comments I vigorously second that recommendation. The story-telling is spot on with just the right amount of detail and backstory, and excellent pace.
