The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicles #1) by Patrick Rothfuss
The Name of the Wind (The Kingkiller Chronicles #1)

I read a lot. A *lot* - I have owned thousands of books in my life, mostly science fiction/fantasy. Tolkien is my guiding light. With that said: Patrick Rothfuss is an astounding talent, and this book is one of the finest fantasy novels I've ever had the delight to read. The world he has created is *alive* - full of the little details and casual observances that you'd expect in a factual biography of a real person. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this to everyone who reads fiction.
