Patrick Rothfuss' fantastic (and bestselling) debut fantasy novel.

'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

My name is Kvothe.

You may have heard of me'

So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.

The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

Industry Reviews

"Patrick Rothfuss' debut is set in an unnamed but fully realised fantasy world, and his characters are detailed and convincing." WATERSTONE'S BOOKS QUARTERLY

This book is an incredible read

I reread this book recently and it drew me in just as it did the first time. My only complaint is the very first few chapters, in my opinion they are slow and can be hard to read. I remember when i read it it took me a week to get through the first few chapters but after that it's a walk in the park. easier in fact. In the end it a fabulous series that i would recommend to everyone, though a third book would be nice...

Loved the series, still waiting for the next book.

A wonderful book of adventure. It had me hooked from the first chapter. Only con is that the writer has been writing the next book for years and is a couple of years now past the original release date.

Good read

I should have listened to the reviews. Unfortunately this author seems incapable of completing the trilogy. The book itself is a good read.

SO GOOD!

It's got an intense storyline and you need to buy both this and the second cause you're going to want to go straight onwards when you finish it

So after not reading for quite a number of years, a friend suggested that i read this book if I'm in to fantasy. this book revived my love for reading that i thought was completely gone. As designer I'm a very visual person and this book was so hard to put down for me due to the fact that it really took me there and i had a clear picture of everything in this book from the characters to the settings, but none of this detracted from the story, all of the descriptions were so perfectly woven into the story itself that everything starts to take shape very naturally as you read.

Patrick Rothfuss

About the Author


Patrick Rothfuss had the good fortune to be born in Wisconsin in 1973, where the long winters and lack of cable television encouraged a love of reading and writing.

After abandoning his chosen field of chemical engineering, Pat became an itinerant student, wandering through clinical psychology, philosophy, medieval history, theater, and sociology. Nine years later, Pat was forced by university policy to finally complete his undergraduate degree in English.

When not reading and writing, he teaches fencing and dabbles with alchemy in his basement. Patrick Rothfuss is an award-winning as well as Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author.
