“There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.”
My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.
So begins the tale of a hero told from his own point of view—a story unequaled in fantasy literature. Now in The Wise Man’s Fear, Day Two of The Kingkiller Chronicle, Kvothe takes his first steps on the path of the hero and learns how difficult life can be when a man becomes a legend in his own time.

What are you waiting for, then?
If you have any curiosity at all about this book, if you haven't already read "The Name of the Wind", if you've ever wondered what, really, is in a name... you should be reading this book right now.
No, I mean it. Right now.
And then... you can join the rest of us while we wait for the third, and presumably final, book of this series to be written. And pity those who haven't read it yet.
Read it. Now.
If you are literate, you must read Rothfuss. I am an avid reader of fantasy and scifi books, and this is probably the most captivated I have ever been by the sheer beauty of the writing itself. The story is great and pulls at your emotions effectively, and though the core "systems" (magic, etc) are not terribly unique Rothfuss more than compensates with a vivid world and interesting cultures. I was excited to see other societies emerge in this installment which spoke of a world as rich and complex as our own. The protagonist continues to evolve and show added layers of depth, while maintaining the basic mystery which drives the series: how did he become the man he is today (and, ultimately, is he a hero or antihero?)
Great book a real page turner had me turning all 1000 pages within 20 hours straight
