Review of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss:
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss is the first book in the Kingkiller Trilogy. It tells the story of Kvothe, who now goes by Kote and is narrating his story to a Chronicler. This story takes place in an alternate universe where magic and science have collided and mixed. There are superstitions, demons, religion, love, and war. As Kvothe tells his story, there are several interludes where we go back to present day and he explains some things, or the characters discuss something that has just been told to us. The back and forth between past and present is well done and clear. This story sucks you in and leaves you wanting more. This book ends with the story incomplete and hints at future things to come.
