About This Item

Stated first hardcover printing with the complete number line. A near fine book in a fine dust jacket. The dust jacket is the first state DJ with the doorknocker/gargoyle image (one of two first state jackets, ISFDB bibliography). A clean, bright, and tight copy that shows only a minor crimping to the spine ends and an overall light foxing to the text block and page ends (common for this title), else fine; housed in a crisp, vibrant dust jacket that shows no significant flaws. Not remaindered, not price clipped, and not ex-library. A beautiful copy protected in a mylar cover and shipped in a sturdy box.


Told in Kvothe's own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen.The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet's hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.

The best books ever, my complete favorite. I can't wait for the thrilling #3!
On Aug 25 2014, Good Old Books said:
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfus is one of my favorite books, and, so far, fantasy series. The third and final book MAY come out soon but it doesn't really matter as I want to cherish it. I really look forward to reading more of his work as his books seem to be driven really well with characterization rather than the story. The story is mysterious and wonderful, too, though!

Often times fantasy books are plagued by the shadow of Middle Earth. This is not true of Rothfuss' book. He has created a place and characters out of new cloth. They are people and places born out of the author himself and they live because he makes them live.It is evident that this is a first book. The second in the trilogy is to be published in March of 2011 and I am sure the story will be tighter and more carefully crafted. Nevertheless, The Name of the Wind is an excellent book full of danger, mysteries, love and strange adventures. Although my willingness to believe was stretched on occasion, Rothfuss never exceeds the bounds of what might be possible somewhere. I appreciate that. He respects his readers as much as he does his characters.This is a nice fat book. You won't finish it in an afternoon. When you do have to put it down to go do the dishes or answer the phone you will regret that you must do so and you will think about the story as you complete your obligations in this world.You will like this book. You will want the next one. What more can I say?
