Just wow!

First of all. Flipkart service was really good. Good packaging and the books were also wrapped in bubble wrap.
Secondly binding is okayish, multiple readings may affect the binding (what more can u expect from a paperback.) And the pages are not so good.
Thirdly if i talk about the books themselves. Have u ever dreamt a very good story which u lost when u woke up... This book is like that dream and was written for u to know what u dreamt.
I read these books in pdf in 2017 and i was so mesmeri...

Reads like the Wind

Having heard about this book everywhere i decided to give it a go. The Prologue itself blew me off.
This book reads like a thunderstorm. This first person narrative of an Anti-hero marks the beginning of a saga that has NO parallals. Beautiful prose, mixed with adequate humor and lots of action, The Name of the Wind packs a massive punch to other fantasy greats in the market.

Young Patrick Rothfuss does to fantasy what Brandon Sanderson did with Mistborn, with incredibly more panache.

This is just too meta. This is just too awesome.

This book is about storytelling.

A deeply moving art in itself, storytelling just becomes that much more fascinating and involving, the more meta you go. And this book shows you how. Patrick Rothfuss, himself a student of anthropology, sociology, medieval history, and a host of other talents, writes the ultimate fantasy: Telling your own story because it simply needs to be told.

So this book is about storytelling. It is the story of a storyteller, sorry.. 'the' storyteller, the legend, the...

Awesome..Just Awesome.

This book is one of those book that once you start reading, you just go on reading and reading. This is my favorite book, even above Harry Potter. I've read quite a lot of books in this genre, and trust me, I haven't found a better book than this. If you want to read about a hero saving a damsel, a poor lad growing up to become a hero, magic, sword and sorcery; This book has everything!
It is even informative and knowledgeable. You'll love the quotes and the structure. Personally, I love the...

Really Nice

currently this review is only about the quality of book and package:
cover: the cover of book is beautiful and and the book title is raised but it's a bit thin compared to other paperbacks (4.5/5).
paper quality: pages of book are....u know......thin(even by the standards of paperback) and is of okayish quality(3.5/5).
binding:you will have to handle the book with a little care because it's a bit thick,but don't worry about the binding- its good,and the book opens fully, without any difficult...

A worthy start....

I just completed the next in the series and this seems a good start. Although this book is nowhere near the next one, it delivers satisfying fantasy material for readers to establish a thrilling series.

One of the better modern fantasy books

Pretty well written. Good language that flows and inspires. Good world. The author takes the time to build it and immerse the reader in it.

My only complaint is that it ended abruptly. Almost as if the printer had run out of paper and chopped a longer book. But for this, it would have earned 5 stars.

Recommended.
