    The Name of the Wind is a fantasy novel by Patrick Rothfuss.

    Summary of the Book

    At first glance, no one would have assumed that the innkeeper Kote had a terrible secret. The town of Newarre is so far off that news reaches it slow, yet a mysterious man called the Chronicler arrives to the town, investigating an idea that he could find one of the most notorious figures of recent history there, hiding in plain sight. When he confronts Kote with his hunch that he is none other than Kvothe, the master swordsman, magician, musician and Kingkiller, the innkeeper originally brushes it off. Yet, Kote’s own pride forces him to reveal his past, and he begins telling the man his story. He begins with his childhood, explaining how he was influenced by a scholar named Abenthy who knew the Name of the Wind. Kvothe explains how he managed to find his way to the city of Tarbean , where he lived as a poor urchin. Later, he applied for admission at the University, and despite his lack of funds, he becomes a formidable student. Along his way, he meets a mysterious woman named Denna and falls in love with her. However, he doesn’t know that his feelings for Denna might be the cause of his own undoing.

    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.
