Just great storytelling... It takes fantasy and magic and makes them both new.
ONE YEAR LATER (almost to the day)...
I can't believe my review of this book was so short! The reason for this update is to say that I still think about this book all the time and recommend it to everyone who is a Reader. I'm reading Game of Thrones right now and I've made note of some similarities in the tone of the two novels.
The major point that the first two books of the Kingkiller Chronicle have going for them over this first book of the Song of Ice and Fire, I think, is that Rothfuss's tale is told from a single point of view. So it's scope is much narrower, but the experience is richer. I fell under the spell of Kvothe's story immediately.
And so will you.
Me los recomendaron, me gusta la parte de niño.
Talk about character development! The story was engrossing and I am excited for the second book.
First things first: I’d like to discourage you from reading this novel because the trilogy as planned by Rothfuss is still unfinished and Kvothe’s amazing story remains untold in large parts. I got this book as a gift from a colleague and despite having been similarly warned by him, I devoured it!
Rothfuss has masterfully crafted a world that is both rich in detail and vivid in imagination, making it impossible for me to put down.
The story centres around the life of Kvothe, an almost legendary wizard, musician and Kingkiller who is now living in obscurity as an innkeeper. The plot weaves together Kvothe's past and present, with each chapter revealing more about his past and how it has shaped the person he has become. The characters in the book are beautifully crafted, with each one having their own unique personality that adds depth and colour to the story.
One of the things I loved most about "The Name of the Wind" was Rothfuss' writing style. His prose is lyrical and poetic, making even the most mundane scenes come alive with vivid imagery. This style of writing, coupled with the intricate world-building, drew me in from the very first page and kept me invested in the story until the very end. (Which made the fact that it’s only the end of the book all the more aggravating!)
Another aspect of the book that I found particularly impressive was the magic system. The way in which magic works in this world is both complex and fascinating, with different types of magic being tied to music and other creative expressions.
Overall, I would highly recommend "The Name of the Wind" to anyone who enjoys fantasy - if only it were finished. The second instalment in the trilogy is similarly great compared to this one, albeit a bit more “explicit” in some aspects…
I just hope I’ll live to see the infamous “Doors of Stone”, the final novel in the trilogy, published. In contrast to, let’s say George R. R. Martin, whom I’ve written off as a complete and unredeemable loss, I fully intend to read Rothfuss one last time.
NB: If you read this and think “this author owes you nothing”, you’d generally be right but Rothfuss actually told us, the trilogy was completely finished several times and promised yearly releases, e. g. here: https://fantasyhotlist.blogspot.com/2007/03/patrick-rothfuss-interview.html
Even his editor is disillusioned to say the least: https://www.newsweek.com/kingkiller-chronicle-editor-believes-author-hasnt-writt...
Nevertheless, for what Rothfuss gave us with “The Name of the Wind” I cannot help but grudgingly award five stars out of five.

The tale of Kvothe, from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages, you will come to know Kvothe as a notorious magician, an accomplished thief, a masterful musician, and an infamous assassin. But this book is so much more, for the story it tells reveals the truth behind Kvothe's legend.

Klassifikation enligt LC
Al principio uno se forma la idea de que el protagonista es cuasi perfecto, aunque con el desarrollo de los acontecimientos se va viendo que hay antagonistas que lo superaran.
AL terminar el libro solo tiees ganas de comenzar el siguiente para ver que ocurrirá. ( )
