Bibliophile Adventures Episode 12: Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind (2007)
This week Michael from Germany takes us into Patrick Rothfuss‘ 2007 fantasy novel The Name of the Wind. Told in Kvothe’s own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen.The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet’s hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.
“As with all the very best books in our field, it’s not the fantasy trappings (wonderful as they are) that make this novel so good, but what the author has to say about true, common things, about ambition and failure, art, love, and loss.”-Tad Williams, New York Times best-selling author of MEMORY, SORROW AND THORN, and SHADOWMARCH
