The lyrical fantasy masterpiece about stories, legends and how they change the world. The Name of the Wind is an absolute must-read for any fan of fantasy fiction. 'This is a magnificent book' Anne McCaffrey 'I was reminded of Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, and J. R. R. Tolkein, but never felt that Rothfuss was imitating anyone' THE TIMES 'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his 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 the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read coming-of-age adventure. Readers adore The Name of the Wind: 'The quality of the writing breathes magic into even fairly ordinary scenes, and makes some of the important ones extraordinary' Mark Lawrence 'This is why I love fantasy so much . . . The writing style is smooth, the pacing just right . . . I would easily recommend this to anyone who enjoys fantasy, but also to people who enjoy great stories told wonderfully well' Goodreads reviewer, 'For the love of God, if you haven't read this book and love these kinds of high fantasy novels, READ IT!' Goodreads reviewer, 'The story is fantastic, the writing is amazing, and if you have a heart the main character will capture it' Goodreads reviewer, 'Patrick Rothfuss is such a talented storyteller and there was never a dull moment throughout the entire book! . . . The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece and Patrick Rothfuss is a freaking genius' Goodreads reviewer, 'This story was, simply put, excellent . . . Rothfuss has more than earnt his reputation. I'm so glad this book lived up to the hype . . . A jaw dropping five stars' Goodreads reviewer, 'One of the best fantasy books of all time' Goodreads reviewer, 'A legitimately wonderful story that is written beautifully . . . This should be one of the required reading books for any fan of fantasy' Goodreads reviewer,

Lite seg i starten, men blir sedan mycket fängslande när man får lära känna huvudkaraktärerna. En bok som är svår att lägga ifrån sig!
En stor fantasynörd , 23 januari 2014
En utav de bästa böcker jag läst, om inte den bästa! Rothfuss skriver på ett sätt som bara han kan: enkelt, vackert, poetiskt och underbart fyndigt.
Detta är en sådan bok som du stäckläser långt in på natten, bara för att du måste läsa ett kapitel till. En sådan bok som gör att du börjar gapskratta på bussen och inte ens bryr dig om folk tittar konstigt på dig. En bok som du kommer gå runt och tänka på i flera veckor efter att du läst ut den. En underbar bok helt enkelt!
