The Name of the Wind is an excellent piece of fantasy literature, roughly on par with George R. R. Martin's "Song of Ice and Fire" books, albeit not as impressive as a jarring, unique work like Mieville's "Perdido Street Station." The book is a story-within-a-story, as the old protagonist, Kvothe, tells the tale of his youth. Rothfuss has created a hero who is likable and easy to relate to, but who is flawed and in some ways is unlike typical fantasy heroes. The story's focus is on Kvothe's struggles to overcome adversity of various sorts, usually armed only with his razor-sharp wits and the clothes on his back. It's a definite page-turner, and it's also very accessible to a younger reading audience; I'd say this could be shelved as easily in the "young adult" section as in the regular SF&F section of the bookstore.

It's an excelent book, full of imagination, magic, mistery, love and passion, everything one could hope to find in a book. As a personal opinion the book is by far one of the best creations of the past years. Not only does the story captivates the reader but makes it feel and live every word in the book. Kvoth the main character wins the heart of those fortunates who's lives are crossed with this, his story. Patrick Rothfuss made us believe again in magic, "The Name of the Wind" show the world that no matter who you are, where you live in, or what you believe in, imagination is the most powerfull tool as it is magic itself. There are not enough words to describe the gratitude towards the author for bringing this work of art to the world, but mostly because "The Name of the Wind" is just the beginning of a mind blowing trilogy. Readers all over the world are waiting impatiently for more of Kvoth's adventures, and so am I.
