Synopsis :
Kvothe is a name most people have come to know. He is a boy with powers beyond reason. So when a collector of stories stumbles upon him in an Inn, he can’t help himself and asks if he can get the real story of Kvothe Kingkiller. Kvothe agrees and begins a tale of love and loss, hardship an friendship.

Review :
Wow! This is storytelling at its finest! Kvothe, the main character is also the narrator. He takes you on a  journey through his crazy life and you are instantly sucked in.

Favorite Quotes :

“Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.” 
― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

“Using words to talk of words is like using a pencil to draw a picture of itself, on itself. Impossible. Confusing. Frustrating … but there are other ways to understanding.” 
― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

“Go out in the early days of winter, after the first cold snap of the season. Find a pool of water with a sheet of ice across the top, still fresh and new and clear as glass. Near the shore the ice will hold you. Slide out farther. Farther. Eventually you’ll find the place where the surface just barely bears your weight. There you will feel what I felt. The ice splinters under your feet. Look down and you can see the white cracks darting through the ice like mad, elaborate spiderwebs. It is perfectly silent, but you can feel the sudden sharp vibrations through the bottoms of your feet.
That is what happened when Denna smiled at me.” 
― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

“Are you hurt?”
“Absolutely,” I said. “Especially in my everywhere.” 
― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
