Cannot wait for the next. This kept me up many a late night. Kvothe is such a gripping character. Hope they make a film of this.

Where was the editor?!

One of my main peeves with The Name of the Wind was the pacing; the University episodes dragged interminably while the sections set elsewhere (especially the dragon incident) seemed rushed and ill-fitting, with all the wrong pieces padded out (too much 'here, peg peg peg' and not enough Chandrian). This recurs in TWMF, but I guess in the name of plot advancement. Again the Maer section was loooong (I loved the politics of rings but enough of bloody Denna's sad tragic life) as was the section with Felurian (which could comfortably been edited to half the length just by removing adjectives. I also find it very implausible that Kvothe would be, er, as impressive as is implied).

There are some jarring turns of phrase in the prose itself ('Nekkid'? Really? Why?) that would not seem out of place in dialogue- but in narrative sections of a book whose prose is often so utterly lovely, even poetic, they seem rather odd. Really adds that 'former fanfiction writer' gloss to things. Unprofessional and unnecessary.

Better than The Name of the Wind. Would have got five stars from me despite all this on the strength of the action scenes alone, but I hate Denna. Dyanna. Deena. Doofus. Whatever. Get over her already, avenge your family, and settle down to raise pegs and havoc, Kvothe.

Finishing of this book made me very sad, it was like saying goodbye to a dear friend.
Can't wait to start on the next one!

This book has left me chomping at the bit for the next instalment. I will be so happy and sad when the final book is released.

Good rolling story bring on book 3, long wait for it, maybe he'll finish it early, maybe he will not. Keep the high balls low.
