I finished The Wise Man’s Fear on Wednesday night, and all day Thursday I felt a sense of loss knowing that the story wasn’t over but there were no more pages in this particular book. I missed the characters, the poetry of the story, the mystical feeling and most of all I missed Kvothe.
The first book is called The Name of the Wind, it is equally as addictive. You must read them in order.
Once you are in the world of Kvothe it’s very hard to step out. I mean how can you put down a book that speaks like this “If you want to know the truth of who you are, walk until not a person knows your name. Travel is the great leveler, the great teacher, bitter as medicine, crueler than mirror-glass. A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet introspection.”
At chapter 95 I did feel a small disconnect, if you feel the same, stay focused and keep reading, don’t skim. I can’t tell you more, no spoilers. The storyline is important.
Please go and find The Name of the Wind, read it and then read The Wise Man’s Fear. These are books you will read more and more slowly as you see the pages grow fewer, until you are actually re-reading paragraphs in order to lengthen your experience.
