Review

The best epic fantasy I read last year...He's bloody good, this Rothfuss guy -- George R R Martin

Patrick Rothfuss' debut is set in an unnamed but fully realised fantasy world, and his characters are detailed and convincing. ― WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY

Patrick Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous -- Terry Brooks

This is a magnificent book -- Anne McCaffrey

The Name of the Wind has everything: magic and mysteries and ancient evil, but it's also humorous and terrifying and completely believable -- Tad Williams

As absorbing on a second reading as it is on the first, this is the type of assured, rich first novel most writers can only dream of producing ― PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing ... with true music in the words -- Ursula K Le Guin

The characters are real and the magic is true -- robin Hobb, New York Times-bestselling author of Assassin’s Apprentice

Masterful ... There is a beauty to Pat's writing that defies description -- Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistborn

[Makes] you think he's inventing the genre, instead of reinventing it -- Lev Grossman, New York Times-bestselling author of The Magicians

Hail Patrick Rothfuss! A new giant is striding the land -- Robert J. Sawyer, award-winning author of Wake

I was reminded of Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, and J. R. R. Tolkein, but never felt that Rothfuss was imitating anyone ― THE TIMES

This fast-moving, vivid, and unpretentious debut roots its coming-of-age fantasy in convincing mythology ― ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

This breathtakingly epic story is heartrending in its intimacy and masterful in its narrative essence ― PUBLISHERS WEEKLY starred review

Reminiscent in scope of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series ... this masterpiece of storytelling will appeal to lovers of fantasy on a grand scale ― LIBRARY JOURNAL (starred)

Shelve The Name of the Wind beside The Lord of the Rings...and look forward to the day when it's mentioned in the same breath, perhaps as first among equals ― The A.V. Club

"Patrick Rothfuss' debut is set in an unnamed but fully realised fantasy world, and his characters are detailed and convincing." ― WATERSTONE'S BOOKS QUARTERLY
