Told in Kvothe's own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen. The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet's hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard. (Goodreads)
 *slow clap* 

I'm not gonna lie it took me a long time to read this book and I was very confused by a lot things that happened, fantasy just isn't my forte. That being said, once I got into this book and started knowing Kvothe better and understanding the world, I really loved this book. Even though I found there wasn't a ton of action, it was the writing style that hooked me, it was wonderful! This is a mammoth of a book with intricate details and a whole new world to learn, I highly recommend this book, just make sure you're ready to take it on!

Everything that happens in this book, Kvothe is just like... Deal with it.
