The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Really a fantastic book. I'd heard a lot about this one during my Wheel of Time reread, and I'd wanted to get to it for some time. Rothfuss does a great job creating an engrossing, complex character and placing that character into a full realized world. The conflicts are superb, the supporting cast memorable, and you get the feeling that something really grim is just over the horizon. The one was worth the hype. The only downer is that it isn't a standalone novel, and it ends very much in the middle of things. Still, I eagerly await the next one.
