Name of the Wind

Name of the Wind” by Patrick Rothfuss.

One of my best friends recommended “The Name of the Wind” to me. She said it was good and that I will like it. She was spot on! I really enjoyed this book. I couldn’t wait to get home from work every night to read it. Now if you haven’t read the book yet, you won’t fully understand my feelings on the end (so you should go read it!) and if you have read it and still don’t understand my feelings, well please explain to my why it was a good ending? Besides that it got me to buy and want to read the second book. I know that much already.

I did not appreciate the ending. Around page 500 I started thinking there wasn’t enough pages left to get through all the questions I wanted answered. I was right, unfortunately. The ending kind of felt rushed to me. I understand that the book ended when the first day ended of story telling but that doesn’t mean I have to like it.

The book overall though was great. I was a little slow getting into it in the beginning but once I figured out what was going on I could barely put the book down. I stayed up till 2am every night reading it. Right after I finished I went to Barns and Nobel website and bought the second book “The Wise Man’s Fear”. I haven’t started it yet but I will this weekend.

Let me know what you think of this book! :) Happy Reading!
