I’ve been enjoying the series. It’s simple, direct and entertaining...at least as an audiobook. If I have one complaint...PLEASE stop using the term “smirk” to describe characters when they’re smiling, grinning, sneering, sniggering or leering. Try a ...more

Patrick Rothfuss possesses the magical ability to make the impossible seem perfectly plausible. This is an exceptional attribute in any writer and a crucial quality in an author of fantasy. Like Tolkien and Martin, Rothfuss builds a world you will dr ...more

Something for the philosopher/scientist... At times grandiloquent and self-indulgent, but occasionally grand and even fascinating. I would not recommend this trilogy to a SciFi enthusiast in search of an entertaining adventure. This is an epic journe ...more

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

J.B.S. Haldane
“The Universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.”
J.B.S. Haldane, Possible Worlds

Mortimer J. Adler
“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”
Mortimer J. Adler

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

W.B. Yeats
“Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.”
W.B. Yeats, The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats
