Patrick Rothfuss is a out and out genius. His writing is poetic yet accurate and builds a engrossing world. It is such a let down that such a great read cannot be finished. I have listened to the slow regard for silent things, and the first half of his second book. But for some reason the second part of both books are not available in Africa. I know that Africa is a backwards continent but at least do us the decency to finish a great story. This Internet is slow enough already......

What did you love best about The Name of the Wind (Part One)?
Great story, engaging characters, this is a book that will hold your attention from cover to cover or you will find reasons to take a very long drive just to hear more.
What about Rupert Degas’s performance did you like?
Excellent and believable performance brings the story to life

For some reason, I delayed listening to this. Now that I have started, I can't stop! (Am currently downloading part 2 of the Wise Man's Fear - the second book is just as good as the first!). Thoroughly enjoying this series....
First - Rupert Degas' narration is masterful. One of the best I've heard (and I have listended to close on 70 audio books in the last 2 years).
As for the story - just the right mix of drama, comedy, magic and general entertainment. The characters are well developed, and the story moves along at a cracking pace, and it's seldom predictable.
If you enjoyed Game of Thrones, or any of Brandon Sanderson's books, this is another one worth spending a few hours with. Patrick Rothfuss is a great story teller.

This book made me laugh and made me cry - and that is as great a compliment as I can make.The story is certainly good in its gender, main character well developped, style pleasant and not hard to follow - and the narration is beautifully done. I think hearing it might be actually even better then reading.... It had me hooked and addicted, and I'm looking forward to continuing the story!

I couldn't 'put this book down'. I would sometimes sit in my car for half an hour listening before I got out. The narration is more like a voice acting performance. Each character had their own accent, brilliant. This book is highly recommended. It had me sitting on the edge on my car seat.

This book makes me wish that I had given four stars to the books I had previously given five. This is five star standard.
