This wasn't a book. It was the introduction to the book. It was a hint at character development in a really tiny way with a bit of unrelated plot drizzled on top. I don't know if it's the author to blame or the publisher for slicing it this way. However you look at it, that's the main reason this got such low marks.

Still, I should say something about the writing itself. Mr. Rothfuss has a pretty good handle on his world and writes most of his characters with a careful and accurate brush. There's little danger in getting folks mixed up because of their dialogue or actions. It's less the mechanics of his writing that bothers me than the organization of it.

This book is written in the third person, but most chapters are first person retrospectives of the main character's life. It's a story being told, and as such the author gets some leeway in commenting on things with the benefit of that character's hindsight. It's a neat structure and I didn't mind it at all. It became distracting later on, though, when these interludes (not the whole-chapter breaks, just the short commentary ones) would creep in and kill the pacing of the story. It seemed to happen most when the main character would remember a specific woman, when once again (for the 300th time) words were not sufficient to describe something and he has to have a quick flashback within a flashback to make a poetic metaphor.

Most disconcerting to me was that by 60%, I no longer cared for the main characters. They annoyed me. My sympathy was lost and try as I might to find it again by the end, it just wasn't there.

I have the second book laying around here, but I have a strong suspicion that it won't see the top of my to-read list. ( )

This wa san AWESOME read, probably one of my favorites ever!!! ( )

This was recommended to me by a friend who was reading it for her book club. I'd like to have known that it was a) part of a series b) part of an UNFINISHED series c) super long and kinda boring.
I think I might have liked it better if I'd read it as a younger person, someone with more time left to read long-ass books and also to wait for the series to be finished and possibly have to re-read the long-ass book before being able to finish the series.
So many cliffhangers, and also the "ending" leaves one wanting more. Female love-interest is her own person and mostly interested in her own survival and comfort, not starring as the "female love-interest" in someone else's fantasy tale. This is written in such a way that most readers would describe her as fickle and irritating.
I don't know, I just wasn't impressed. ( )

Near the end our adventurer, Harry Potter, met up with Bilbo and fought a great dragon! Then he said something about the wind to spite the vicious Draco. The end!

Oh, I guess it is ok if you can't read the Hobbit or real Potter books. If you want to read a book like this check out "The Last Apprentice". That is an excellent book! ( )

I don't like how he ended chapters with things like "little did I know that was the worst mistake of my life" and then I didn't get a direct correlation to the statement.

It's a huge book. A lot was covered but it definitely isn't a single book with a full plot. ( )

To my mother, who taught me to love books, and opened the door to Narnia, Pern, and Middle Earth.
And to my father, who taught me that if I was going to do something, I should take my time and do it right.
And lastly, to Mr. Bohage, my high school history teacher. In 1989 I told him I’d mention him in my first novel. I keep my promises

Anger can keep you warm at night, and wounded pride can spur a man to wondrous things.
I only know one story. But oftentimes small pieces seem to be stories themselves.
Fear tends to come from ignorance. Once I knew what the problem was, it was just a problem, nothing to fear.
Wisdom precludes boldness.
