I never write reviews normally but the kingkiller chronicles deserve the highest praise. It captivates, enthralls, and pulls at the heart strings because it is so vivid and whilst being a fantasy novel, the heroine is flawed, yet likeable and most importantly, relatable. There are many great moments of humour as well. Any reader that appreciates a good story and beautiful writing should read this, no matter the age. Even the non fantasy readers would appreciate Rothfuss' story.
