Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

The Wise Man's Fear (Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 2)
by Patrick Rothfuss

For nearly four years, fantasy and science fiction enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting this second volume to Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles. The first volume, The Name of the Wind, won the prestigious Quill Award and was recently voted as the third-best SFF novel of the decade on Tor.com. In this linchpin book of the trilogy, Kvothe continues his perilous search for answers about the Chandrian even as he grapples with more pressing dangers.

I'm going to keep this brief:

I am half in love with Kvothe.  More than half, if I'm honest.
This was easily my most eagerly awaited book of the year, and it came out on my birthday.  There couldn't have been a better birthday present.
It's a rare author who can write a nearly 1000-page book and still leave you wanting more.
'Nuff said.

And if you haven't read The Name of the Wind or Wise Man's Fear, I would suggest you do so.  Now.
I never really tell people to buy books (libraries are lovely things), but this is one of the rare instances where I'm going to.  Do yourself a favor: buy these and love them like they deserve to be loved.


  1. I read the first one and loved it. I really need to go out and read the second!

  2. The hubby's reading this now. Goodness knows when I'll ever get to these tomes though. He's really liking it though!

  3. I agree! I loved this book, except I thought the part with Felurian lasted a bit longer than I would have liked.

  4. I wish I could talk to someone else about this second book. So many questions and wonderings about little things Rothfuss inserted here and there throughout the story of Kvothe that hint at possible outcomes and answers. Now the wait begins for book three.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
