I haven't been compelled to leave a review for a while, since trawling my way through a batch of samey fantasy and sf novels. But then I was recommended to read The Name of the Wind and it has gone straight into my top 5 list. I read a lot and am always hoping to recapture that feeling from when I read LOtR and this book has done it. Is there anything better than falling in love with a great book? A few pages in, I knew it was going to be amazing. The world PR has built is vivid and huge, without being overwhelmingly bogged down in detail. I love the characters, they seem so real and the plot is gripping. I read night and day to find out what happened and couldn't wait to get home from work to find out what would happen next. Absolutely amazing.

I've just completed my 7th or 8th re-read, I've lost count now, but still managed to spot things I missed before. Truly a work of genius in so many different ways; it is not only a brilliant, epic fantasy, it also questions the nature of stories and story-telling, human nature, political and social hierarchies, and many other things.

I wasn't expecting to, but I got completely caught up in this. Couldn't put it down for long stretches. Engaging, entertaining and really enjoyable. I hope part three will eventually turn up since I'm already craving part two...

I got this book on the recommendation of a friend as it is normally the sort I would avoid like the plague. I can't bear the endless fantasy series that some authors churn out and any hint of a trilogy or a sequel usually puts me right off; I prefer a book that stands on it's own merits, not in relation to what follows. By about half way through, it became clear that this story would not be completed in a single book but instead of making my heart sink I was quite excited at the thought of more. The Name of the Wind is not perfect, but it is fresh and original and gripping. Best of all it is not a thinly veiled re-hash of Lord of the Rings. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to reading the next one.

Fantastic story telling. Took me awhile to get into it but it's fresh, characters have substance, and the story is simply magic. You can relate to the situations that Patrick conjures up. He's done a lot of research before commencing this book as the story line follows a believable path. Bought the second the minute I finished the first and it's even better

Best book I've read in some time. If you like your fantasy uncomplicated and slightly softer around the edges, yet deep without being tedious, you'll enjoy this.
