A lot of people enjoyed t does not mean that I did I ve read a rare few books I disliked than this one Agree or not that s my HONEST opinion You don t have to agree with me but I don t have to like this book I have never read a book so vacuous vapid pretentious and up ts own ass as The Wise Man s Fear Check out my other reviews a review of three parts revisited dawn was coming the keys of a laptop lay The Great Smog of India in stillness to continue a review andt was a review of three partsthe most obvious part was a vast echoing uestion made by answers that were lacking f there had been pages words would have wrapped and scattered across the sheets of paper beneath anxious hands deas would have formed and floated and chased the uestion across the mind like a wisp of summer breeze The Sex of the Angels, the Saints in their Heaven: A Breviary if there had been to kvothes story he would have played and traversed across the four corners of civilisation brushing the uestion away like an unraveling half forgotten dreamf there had been a third book but no of course there was no third book n fact there were none of these things and so the review remained across the nternet the noise of distant conclusions and theories were posted across forums but these Popular Hits ideas were slender as a thread with one counterpoint breaking them leaving only mumbling posters and unsatisfied thinkers but those thoughts faded too leaving nothing but a second part of the review waiting like an endlessndrawn breaththe third part was not an easy thing to notice f you read long enough you might begin to feel t n the warmth that floods your heart as you fall n love with a story The Creative Habit it wasn the heavy words that lay across pages reluctantly turned because the end was coming all too uickly and The Rest of the Story it wasn the hands of the girl who sat on her bed enchanted typing the first thoughts and feelings that came to her during the nightthe girl had true brown hair brown as a mouse her eyes were bright and attentive and she typed with the sure direction of one who has read and reviewed many books over time the laptop was hers just as the third part was hers this was appropriate as t was the greatest part of the three holding the others nside tself t was deep and wide as autumns ending Lords of Life: A History of the Kings of Thailand it was heavy as a great river smooth stonet was the patient cut flower sound of a girl forever awaiting the continuation of a storythanks for ntroducing me to kvothe john even though you dont like him P 5 stars This review s from 2011In case you haven t heard today s the release day of the long awaited seuel to The Name of the Wind a delightful debut fantasy novel by Patrick Rothfuss I ve had the privilege of reading the book so I thought I d post a heads up here for those of you who read my blog along with a review Of sorts Also a reminder I did an nterview with Pat and he kind of nterviewed me back for You can read t at this link ONE A REVIEW OF THE WISE MAN S FEARAll right so the review of Wise Man s Fear will focus on one uestion Is Simon Spatz: From Holocaust to Halifax, A Story of Survival and Success it as good as the firstThe answers yes and I feel that A Life in Two Worlds it s uite a bit better Thats saying a lotThere s the review I figure that There s a tendency when reading a series to rate the books against each other rather than against the world I ve seen The Hitler Kiss: A Memoir of the Czech Resistance it done to my own books I loved XXXX of Thorns butt wasn t as good as YYYY of Thorns so 4I didn t enjoy The Wise Man s Fear as much as I enjoyed The Name of the Wind I didn t enjoy A Dance With Dragons as much as I enjoyed A Game of Thrones But I m giving them ALL 5 because compared to most books I read they re noticeably better I won t 4 this book to make my point that The Doré Illustrated Balzac Droll Stories it s for me not as good asts predecessor I ll make that point here With wordsReaders often get confused between the journey the destination and the story When the reader thinks the story lies at the end of the journey and the writer thinks the story IS the journey t can cause tensions between themReading TWMF part of me was always wanting to get back to the thing where the thing was where my knee jerk tells me the story lies e making solid progress at the university Tracks and Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates: A Guide to North American Species in order to tackle the Chandrian And that really doesn t happenn this very long book In fact so little happens n that direction that I wonder f Rothfuss might not wholly evade that Gwydion's Dawn issue Certainlyf he s to conclude the story n three books t seems that a drastic up Mj 12. Die Geheime Regierung ing of focus and pace or a 10000 page book would be reuired to deal with Heliax and friendsSo let s put to one side the fact thatf you think the story Strahlend In Purpur Und Goldd. Heilige Reich Von Konstantinopel is about revenge on the Chandrian then basically nothing happened and notenstead that all the side adventuring was fun to read and very well writtenKvothe continues to be brilliant at everything The fact that on one page late on we discover he s not genius level at mathematics hardly balances that he picks up a difficult new language makes startling progress at marshal arts and Sierra Wildflowers: Mt. Lassen to Kern Canyon impresses a sex fairy with his sexing even thought s his first timeIf you let go of your destination desires this El Guero Tellez/ Tellez the Blond: Reportero de policia!/ Police Reporter! is an enjoyable book with great prose The story meanders seemingly without direction In fact a big chunk oft Haunted Louisiana: The Most Haunted Houses in Louisiana is about Kvothe and friends meandering without direction hunting banditsn a vast wood The aim doesn t feel particularly mportant protecting tax collectors n a distant land the meat of A Mistaken Match it doesn t feel very exciting they wander for a LONG time and much oft feels pretty random the sex fairy encounter comes out of nowhere but even so I plain enjoyed reading Lodz it we get our little band group dynamics we get story telling around the camp fire and each told storys a fun bit of fiction n tself It all sounds a bit dull when I lay The Diminished it out but the deliciousness like the devils n the detail and I kept coming back for In the end we re back at the university and bugger all has been accomplished On a basic level we re pretty much where we started and left wondering how this story s going to move forward But on an entirely different level I ve consumed a 1000 page book n an unheard of for me two weeks and enjoyed pretty much every minute of t So five starsI now at long last join the

that absolute badass move you pulled toward the end of the book well let s just say that that move put you right back up onto my top five male characters n fantasy You took me by surprise and that s why I love you These two books have given me a lot of first experiences You were the first character that I ever truly loved The Name of the Wind was the first fantasy book that utterly engrossed and enthralled me the whole way through made me forget the world around me and a personal favourite of mine gave me the first ever chapter Jackass Jackass that became my favourite until very recently It was knocked off the top spot by Mo divinity mo problems from Fool s Gold I mean come on need I say And last but certainly not least what s Mehr als das in a name PLENTY because The Wise Man s Fear still remains my favourite book title to date Your creator really knows how to pick em The bad I would ve absolutely given you the full 5 stars but I have somessues that have yet to be resolved For starters what re you still doing at the university t s been two tomes with over a thousand pages long and somehow you re still lurking around that damned place I loved the whole university aspect n the first book but I expected you to move on to different adventures And second most of what you did here was travel from place to place doing one thing after another then repeating the cycle again The first book set up so much tension and mystery that I thought I d finally get some answers here but alas I did not And I was willing to forgive that after all there s still the finale to consider but still give a girl somethin And though I enjoyed the ride Abby and the Bachelor Cop it was lackingn the one thing I appreciate than anything Eye to Eye in books suspense and dramatic tension I NEED TENSION Kvothe I needt like I need air maybe not to that extent but trying to make a point here I need to be at the edge of my seat reading one chapter after another that gets my pulse racing Don t

Patrick Rothfuss ´ 5 Download455 starsThe Wise Man s Fear had all the potential to be better than The Name of the Wind and although this s still an amazing book putting t Always Look Twice in comparison withts preuel show how this one fell a bit short All For You: Halfway There / Buckhorn Ever After / The One You Want / One Perfect Night in ualityPicture The Wise Man s Fear main uoteThe plot of WMF still as simplistic as the previous book started on Day 2 straight after the end of NotW with Kvothe sharing his life journey to Chronicler with Bast listening tot If you think the pacing of NotW was slow believe me that Rothfuss managed to slow Any Man Of Mine it down even Don t be fooled by my six days reading pace of this tome Thiss actually one of the slowest paced books I ever read Annalee And The Lawman in my entire lifeAre the plot and pacing bad for the story Not s actually really great The Apollonides Mistress Scandal it had the sense of danger that the previous book lacked andt still followed the root of the series I ve always love slow paced or fast paced book eually but for a book that s filled with 994 pages Rothfuss could ve done so much with the story especially with ts pacing Looking at t from bird s eye view the overall story Anything For His Son is fantastic There are somemportant events that provide Anticipation information to why the present worlds n ts state especially the meeting with a new entity called Ctaeh This meeting tself added a lot of depth to Kvothe s chronicle and the trilogy s overarching story It s only after this encounter that I realized why KKC fans are so eager for what events may occur n The Doors of Stone However as great as the plot s WMF suffers from the nfamous 2nd book syndrome Annie and the Outlaw in which there are a lot of unnecessary emphases on the filler contents Themportant story aren t given enough focus and the filler parts are given way too many I know the fillers parts are necessary for Kvothe s character development but they could ve been cut down or replaced with something much ANNIE AND THE PRINCE important to the present story For example compiling from the available two book that s around 1600 pages out of those pages Kvothe spent around 600 pagesn the University that s the entire length of NotW already I admit I love the time Kvothe spent The Single Dad's Redemption in the University but I m starting to think Rothfuss had a horrible grudge with student tuition and student loan as those 600 pages and most of Kvothe s chronicle up to now had to do with settling that tuition rather than givingnformation on the Chandrian Also The Name of the Wind had Kvothe s chronicle told right from he s 8 years old up to when he s 15 years old The Wise Man s Fear only focused on Kvothe s life until 17 years old that s only 2 years despite having almost 400 pages than NotWMy previous point doesn t mean that I dislike the book or saying that A Christmas Affair it s a negative point not s not I stated that only to emphasize that the plot HAD a lot of potential to be engrossing than the current state The worst part of the book for me however should not be a surprise to anyone who has read this already Denna This s what made my reading enjoyment of this book decreased Not only Denna s personality encapsulates everything I don t ever want to see n a girl Kvothe s hundreds of pages The Apple Orchard infatuation with hers really tedious and When Hitler Took Austria: A Memoir of Heroic Faith by the Chancellor's Son infuriating to read Kvothe s and Denna s stupid romance really put a sour taste to my enjoyment of the bookt was okay n NotW but t only got worse here that I literally face palmed myself at one point For me every time Denna s not n the picture the story became compelling despite how slow paced and fillery t s t s not an exaggeration to say that Denna s one of the worst heroine of all time out of all medium for me Luckily this part s the only problem I had with the book the characters the scarce actions music world building and prose still work together n bringing the charm of the seriesKvothe s has a lot of greatly written character development whether you like t or not t really depends on your preferences and patience I personally like Ensimmäinen maailmansota it I do think again his sex spree ever since his meeting with Felurian could be cut down a bit Kvothe himself as a characters uite complex yes he s a genius kind hearted charming and talented but at the same time he s also temperament stupid n love and made a lot of rash decision which kinda eualized his character It s the uestions we can t answer that teach us the most They teach us how to think If you give a man an answer all he gains s a little fact But give him a uestion and he ll look for his own answers The other side characters Bast Simmon Wilem Elodin Auri and a new addition Tempi continue to captivate me I love their The Lion Seeker interactions developments and can t wait to see how the story concludes for Kvothe and themn the last bookThe magic system Sympathy which n my opinion s a combination of Voodoo Dolls curse mixed with science received a lot of focus here and I was really enthralled by Tom Waits - Mule Variations it To see howt finally utilized n combat s amazing Don t get me wrong as before the action scenes are really scarce n Fact Out Of Two Books In Total You Ll Only out of two books n total you ll only around 50 pages of actions give or take but when t s there t s written really wellPicture Kvothe The ArcaneThe book s focus on music continued to be my favorite part of the series despite lacking n content compared with the other factors this time t s a rhapsody that I can t ever get enough of I love how the music were mplemented with the world building *which must say s fantastic to say *I must say s fantastic to say least Amazing exploration on the lore different cultures from each part of the world and Das Augsburger Bekenntnis intricate metafictional stories within stories combined with Rothfuss s highest rank prose the book never fails to capture my attention whent doesn t have Denna And Then You Die (Aurelio Zen, in the plot Anyone can love a thing because That s as easy as putting a pennyn your pocket But to love something despite To know the flaws and love them too That Letters of Euler on Different Subjects in Natural Philosophy: Addressed to a German Princess is rare and pure and perfect At the end of Day 2 this particular uote summed up exactly how I feel about The Wise Man s Fear Yes the book hast flaws and missed potential but despite that I still love this book and the trilogy I really enjoyed reading Christiane und Goethe (Spiegel-Edition, it and I will definitely recommend this trilogy to anyone who s looking for anntricately great adult high fantasy book This The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe V. Wade is going to bencluded Jager's Mate into one of my favorite trilogy of all time and Doors of Stone have a huge potential to turnt nto the number one best trilogy of all time for me But as we all know Rothfuss pretty much pushed himself nto a corner with his storytelling decision on this bookThere are way too many things to resolved Leaving Rock Harbor in Kvothe s legend and stories from the past and he also has to conclude the present story as well Unless the last books around 2000 pages which t won t be since Rothfuss confirmed that already I really don t know how t can have a satisfying conclusion but Ketamine: Dreams and Realities ift can then this will truly be a trilogy to remember The Last Prairie: A Sandhills Journal it alreadys When you wait a few span or month to hear a finished song the anticipation adds savor But after a year excitement begins to sour Kvothe The Name of the Wind How about 6 years for a book Oh well that particular Door won t be opened for many years to come I predict 2021 or probably never anyway Overall the unfinished Kingkiller Chronicle Siege is a fantastic high adult fantasyt had t flaws but the method of storytelling s uniue and engrossing that you should read t do take nto mind though that you re going to wait for a LONG time for the conclusion of the trilogy before starting Zarathustra's Secret: The Interior Life Of Friedrich Nietzsche itPicture The Wise Man s Fear by Marc Simonetti You can find this and the rest of my Adult EpicHigh Fantasy Sci Fi reviews at Booknest So there s an established phenomenon that I

69 it It was a long time coming An Opinionated look atPatrick Rothfuss The Wise Man s FearBy Eric AllenOne thing I can say for Patrick Rothfusss that he has great Caliban's War ideas Unfortunately greatdeas do not by themselves a great story make I have heard rumors that the first book The Name of the Wind took eleven years of revisions and rewrites to finally get published Whether that s true or not his hard work paid off Since ts release the the Message of the Apus internet hype over the future of the trilogy has been building to monumental proportions Rothfuss has developed an almost rabid cultlike following of fans yearning to know what happens next The Name of the Wind gave us many mysteries and few answersThe first book was a fun read that while flawedn terms of story and character was uite entertaining and extraordinarily well written It was like the ramblings of an old man talking simply to be listened to Like cake Double Play it tastes good but has little nutritional valuen Frau, komm!: die Massenvergewaltigungen deutscher Frauen und Mädchen 1944/45 it Make no mistake I really enjoyed the first book but as a followup to a great book The Wise Man s Fear wasnsultingly bad We were left with many burning uestions at the end of The Name of the Wind Would Kvothe learn to control the Wind How would he be thrown out of the University Would he ever become an Arcanist Would he find some way to make money Would he ever avenge his parents How did he come from the promising youth seeking clues to the supernatural beings that murdered his family to the broken down Les Enfants Terribles innkeeper telling the story Would he ever make any sort of progress with Denna or would my book simply explode while I readt because of the pent up sexual tensionWere any of these uestions answered or even addressed The Vampire Book Two in this book Not a one So let s take a look at The Wise Man s Fear Or as I like to callt The Name of the Wind 2 Kvothe Gets LaidWe begin where The Name of the Wind left off with a much older Kvothe now an nnkeeper telling the story of his life to the king s Chronicler It s a story n three parts told n three days much like the silence that haunts his These Witches Dont Burn inn At first I didn t get the whole silencen three parts thing but then I realized the writer was trying to be clever and failing miserably at The Black Jersey it As Kvothe begins his story the book switches from third person to first person He begins his next term of schooling at the University Some of his teachers love him others hate him He s made friends and enemies Unfortunately we ve already read this before It seems like the last half of The Name of the Wind has basically been retold heren the first half of The Wise Man s FearLuckily the plot finally Tangled Threads (Elemental Assassin intervenes and Kvothe takes a year off from his schooling for adventure and hopefully to fill his pockets with a little money to fight off his abject poverty An acuaintance conveniently knows of a rich and powerful noblemann a distant land that The Heat of the Moment: Life and Death Decision-Making From a Firefighter is looking for a clever young musician to help him win the heart of the lady he has his eye on Fortunately Kvothe happens to be a clever young musician ConvenientTo make an extremely long story short he foils an assassination plot gains the nobleman s trust and helps him woo his Lady In a completely pointless tangent he s sent on a mission to bring bandits to justice loses himself on a tangent from the tangent when he meets a seductress who teaches him how to please women Then the tangent from the tangent takes another tangent to another distant land where he learns to tangent from a group of tangentary tangents buts tangented by yet another tangent after leaving when he tangents upon some young tangents n need of being tangentially tangented away from wait what as I talking about again Oh right I m reviewing a book One could say that the entire last half of the book s just one gigantic tangent that has absolutely nothing to do with anything and ultimately leads nowhereFalling out with his lordly
Kvothe returns to school with an that for his services his education and expenses at school would be taken care of At which point he resumes his school life as Potty Training Magic: The Fun Way to go Nappy-Free Fast if nothing has happened and the book ends rather abruptly again with no climax no conflict and no resolutionThe good Rothfuss has an excellent sense of humor Kvothe can be entertaining at times when he s not acting like annsufferable smartass which Tiny House: Live Small, Dream Big is most of the time The world and the magic system are very well thought out and the different cultures and races seem very distinct and real The writingtself s excellent So good n fact that most people don t even realize what a god awful mess every other aspect of the book The Breakdown of Democratic Regimes: Crisis, Breakdown and Reequilibration. An Introduction is Despite all the bitching I do about this bookt was worth reading at least once for the humor or to see the train wreck for yourselfThe bad Firstly t s very evident that Rothfuss has ABSOLUTELY no respect for women whatsoever Almost every woman Young Mr. Obama in this books a figurative Inside Tunisia's Al-Nahda: Between Politics and Preaching if not literal whore that exists for the sole purpose of pleasuring comforting or otherwise confounding Kvothe News flash Pat women are people too The same as you and me with thoughts feelings and desires all of their own that do NOT typically revolve around somencomprehensible and fantastical yearning to please. «Todo hombre sabio teme tres cosas la tormenta en el mar la noche sin luna y la ra de un hombre amable»El hombre había desaparecido El mito no Músico mendigo ladrón estudiante mago trotamundos hér. Men Just thought you d like to know Half of this book s copy and paste from the first book The other half has little to no point and goes absolutely nowhere There s no conflict there s no suspense there s nothing like a normal story arch There Love's Pulse is no climax because the book doesn t build up to anything Like I said Patrick Rothfuss has greatdeas but no storytelling skills to apply them to The whole narrative Okfuskee: A Creek Indian Town in Colonial America isncoherent and nonsensical You have to reward your readers with a climactic event or two for sticking with you through the whole book PatFar too much time Los hombres me explican cosas is spent on characters telling allegorical stories that really have little point or purpose except to take up spacen a book that Academic Strategy: The Management Revolution in American Higher Education is already FAR too long for what actually happensn t They take up huge swaths of the book and leave the characters with very little n the way of worth afterward The lessons they learn could have been simply taught through other means or much much shorter stories The huge amount of tangents that the story takes makes Plautus it feel as though the writer madet up as he went along It s really so Managing from the Heart incoherent and so rambling that I believe this book should have been marketed as a collection of short stories than a novel The freuentnterruptions back to the present day where Kvothe discusses aspects of his story are annoying and hugely distracting breaking up whatever little suspense that the writer managed to cultivate Not a single uestion raised Crown of Violet in the first book was answered or even addressedn this book n fact this book picks up as though there were no uestions left by the first book and does nothing to either build up the mystery of them or move closer to answering them It s as though the writer completely forgot all of them and moved on to something elseIf you ve read The Name of the Wind you have no need to read The Wise Man s fear because you ve already read A Coney Island Reader: Through Dizzy Gates of Illusion it It s basically the same book and theresn t a single thing necessary to the overall story that happens Creating the Constitution: 1787 int When book 3 eventually comes out you could probably pick Time After Time it up after reading book 1 and not have missed a single thing This book was completely unnecessary and utterly pointlessI have never liked the first person perspective very much It gives a very narrow view of the world as you can only see experience and feel the world through the eyes of a single character You have no other views to give perspective I always find the contrasting views of different characters to give the world and story a lot flavor than simply following the words of a single character However some of my favorite books are writtenn first person It can be done well and for the most part Rothfuss does good things with Rosie's Mom: Forgotten Women Workers of the First World War it but when he moves to the parts of the book that happenn the present day he switches to third person and the contrast In the American Province: Studies in the History and Historiography of Ideas is jarring and almost as distracting as the actualnterruptions themselves Especially because he does not seem to be as talented African Perspectives on Colonialism in writing third person as hes at writing first personRothfuss goes out of his way to shoehorn the title of the book Staying Dry: 99 Tips to Bring You Back from the End of Your Rope into the storyn several places and Madonna Red it s really distracting It was like he came up with a great sounding title and then completely drew a blank on why the book should be called that then dropped a couple referencesn after the fact He also seems to think his readers are Humanism and Education in Medieval and Renaissance Italy: Tradition and Innovation in Latin Schools from the Twelfth to the Fifteenth Century idiots and freuently talks down to themThe ugly Lots and lots of sex There are so many sex scenesn this book that I started to wonder Innocent on Her Wedding Night ift shouldn t have had a shirtless ripped long haired dude on the cover and a title like Warrior of Passion or some such nonsense from the porn er I mean Romance section of the bookstore Everywhere Kvothe goes women are throwing themselves at him I wonder what his secret The End of Sacrifice: Capital Punishment Writings of John Howard Yoder is Must be the Axe body spray In real life no man has women constantly trying to jump his bones simply because he s the main charactern the story of his own life Especially not sixteen year olds who are often thought to be younger than that by appearance That s called pedophilia and most people tend to see that as very WRONG News flash women don t typically think or act like that If I were a girl reading this book I think I d find myself highly offended by this It s almost as though he s the bearer of the One Wang Yes the fabled One Wang of Power The One Wang to rule them all The One Wang to find them The One Wang to bring them all and The Dominican Intervention in the darkness well you know Denna IHAAAAATEFREAKINGDENNAOh my holy hell I hate this character Talk about doing EVERYTHING you possibly couldn character creation wrong I get that the writer obviously wanted to make a mysterious female character for the male lead to fall for someone who euals his own mysteriousness And that sort of thing CAN be done well but here Elusive Equality: Women's Rights, Public Policy, and the Law it s definitely NOT You can only dragt out so far before The Clairmont Correspondence: Letters of Claire Clairmont, Charles Clairmont, and

Century: From Sects to Science interest Why do I hate her so much Because frankly she s just a badly crafted and written character Shes bland So much so that Rothfuss should be both highly embarrassed and ashamed of her She Neighboring Lives is boring Shes annoying She tries to be clever but Chernobyl Zone (I) isn t AT ALL Shes not a realistic portrayal of a woman The Algiers Motel Incident in the slightest bit She serves no purpose to the plot whatsoever ands blatantly shoehorned Washington Seen: A Photographic History, 1875-1965 in where she does not belong because someone decided that every work of fiction just HAS to have a love storyn t Her faux mysteriousness s badly written contrived BS that does little but annoy the reader and make her even painful to sit through And most «My Name

meaning of the term In short she Iwo Jima: Legacy of Valor is completely unlikablen any way shape or form Besides being completely unlikeable neither she nor Kvothe act like they give two damns about each other and their relationship fails completely because t s been dragged out FAR too long Even the most rabid Twi tard would likely agree on that pointSometime n the story SOMETHING has to happen between them You can t just keep building up between two people that honestly have no reason to fall Stone of Asylum (Dance of the Crane in love with each other and callt a love story DO SOMETHING And for the record I do not count an argument that has absolutely nothing to do with their relationship Carmen: Libretto in any way to be something happeningn said relationship Rothfuss keeps playing up her mysteriousness to such a degree that I finally just started flipping through and skimming the last few chapters with her The Mercy Seat in them because she pisses me off too much I gett she s terribly mysterious GET TO THE DAMN POINT ALREADY She turns an otherwise entertaining character Summer and Smoke into a whining crying spineless emo stalker Her characters so distracting and utterly painful to be subjected to that she completely ruins the book all on her own If every other gripe I had about the book mysteriously disappeared the presence of Denna alone would have ruined Head Over Heels it Worst of all this painful mess of a love story has yet to serve any purpose to the overall plot Oht may come Sprichw�rter: H�fflicheit Zier, H�chste Vernunfft Und Klugheit, Was Auch Zu Ewiger

book but suffering through this horrible boring emotionless and frankly unbelievable abomination for two books leading up to Roula Rouge: Roman its asking too much There haven t even been any hints whatsoever that Monsieur Saguette and His Baguette it mayn fact be mportant later on to what passes for a plot n Patrick Rothfuss universe It s a contrived annoying distracting and frankly painful waste of timeRemove Denna from the series entirely and Poor Man's Imaginary Friend its a much better series I do not know who came up with the rule that Freedom by the Sword: The U.S. Colored Troops 1862-1867 - South Atlantic Coast, Gulf Coast, Mississippi River, Southern States, Reconstruction in every work of fiction there must needs be a love story but guess what Sometimes you really don t need one It becomes superfluous and takes away from the storynstead of adding to Love and Magic I: 9 Paranormal Romances it This series certainly would benefit a GREAT DEAL without one Why Because Rothfuss doesn t know the first thing about love whichs painfully obvious Hummingbird if you ve read even one scene between Kvothe and Denna He doesn t seem to understand what loves or how Beyond Identity Politics: Feminism, Power and Politics it works He seems to subscribe to the George Lucas version of love Two talented and good looking people are together TADAAAAAAH IT S LOVE now shut up and enjoy your ridiculously over the top computer animated explosion fest of a climax If you can t craft a believable and compelling love story STOP Take two steps back And completely removet from your book because the story Das Licht brennt ein Loch in den Tag is better off withoutt than Das alte Haus its when La Folle de Chaillot it completely fails A love story has to develop and always be moving Whethert be forward or backward t must always be going SOMEWHERE The characters have to get to know each other and fall n love through mutual experiences and differences not randomly meet know each other and fall In Schlesien geboren, in Schlesien gelebt, aus Schlesien vertrieben: Erinnerungen in love through mutual experiences and differences not randomly meet and there and have a boring conversation with a convenience that stretches credulity and coincidence alike The supposed relationship between Kvothe and Denna goes exactly NOWHERE andt leaves you wondering why the author keeps trying to tell us that there Safe Enough to Soar is even a so called love story between these two characters at alln the first place There has to be some sort of progress made You can t throw two good looking people together that have no reason to fall How to Think Like a Great Graphic Designer in love with each other and callt a love story There Caravaggio. is nothing about this love story thats a even a love story and b the slightest bit nterestingAnd yet Kvothe continuously pines after this girl as though he has any sort of meaningful relationship with her when there s no reason whatsoever for him to even care that she exists other than that she s a girl and he s a boy There may be some small one sided physical attraction on his part but physical attraction does not eual love The attraction Cases in Marketing Management is NOT mutual however and thats plainly obvious Handgestenerkennung im Interaktionsszenario in the way that Denna acts and speaks to Kvothe The lengths to which the author goes to assure us that theres a love story here are almost as creepy as the lengths to which Kvothe goes to stalk her Especially because she has expressed no romantic The Emperor's Club interestn him at all and freuently attaches herself to other men IN HIS PRESENCE INCLUDING his arch nemesis Ambrose AND THEN Kvothe himself basically bones every girl he meets n the entire book OTHER THAN HER What s this This sn t a love story It s like watching a rock try to get t on with a piece of wood They constantly boink other people throughout the book and seem to have no romantic feelings toward one another at all Do you even understand what love Písně Vrbovýho proutku is Pat From this book I can definitely say that you do not I haven t seen such a failure to write a compelling love story since Attack of the Clones And I m not just biased against love stories because I m a guy I will admit that I do enjoy the occasional well done love story so long ast actually serves a purpose to the plot or makes me feel that these characters truly do love each other and deserve to be together two things that are lacking here so much so n fact that t completely and utterly ruins the entire series from the first page Denna walked Factory of Tears in on The moment she showed up was the moment this series wasrrevocably ruined I can t wait for her foreshadowed death because I will cheer with joy the day I read her last words Until then I award Patrick Rothfuss the George Lucas Totally Understands Love Stories Award So after all Broken by the Alien is said and dones The Wise Man s Fear really as bad as I make My Family, A Symphony: A Memoir of Global Adoption it out to be YES IT IS But at the same time no It reallysn t that horrible If you can Reform or Revolution Other Writings (Books on History, Political Social Science) ignore that this entire books completely pointless and full of a non love story that Butterfly in the Wind: The Life of Tojin Okichi, Concubine Against Her Will of the First American Consul in Japan is really starting to gratet can be uite entertaining The sense of humor and Kvothe as a character are enough to keep you nterested through the good and the bad alike Denna s annoying and pointless but you can skip any chapter about her and miss little to nothing because she s not Zombie, Ohio important to the plot and serves no purpose at all except to make Kvothe so lovesick that he screws 25 other girls during the course of the book shrug Yeah I don t gett either If sex scenes offend you you ll be doing uite a bit of skipping As I said before this book was completely unnecessary and did nothing at all to ultimately advance the plot or the characters If you come at t at all to ultimately advance the plot or the characters If you come at t a work of comedy rather than part of a grand epic fantasy then you ll likely be entertained by the humor On the other hand you could pick up book 3 when Promises, Promises it comes out and not be lost at all because this book was about nothing The characters did not learn grow or progress at all andt ends as Memoirs of an Old Dyke it begins with Kvothen school dealing with the same problems he was dealing with Boo and The Backyard Zoo in the beginning He hasn t taken anything away from his misadventures He hasn t learned any lessons He s the same character he was at the beginning There s a great storyn here somewhere the author keeps hinting at great events to come but he never takes any steps closer to them It s the best book about absolutely nothing that you ll ever readAt the risk of A Laboratory Text-Book of Embryology inviting nerd rage the likes of which GOD has never seen I give The Wise Man s Fear 1 star It loses pointsn complete lack of plot endless tangents repeated use of pointless allegory and Whippersnapper inflicting Denna s completely horrible side story on us The only thing that kept me reading this book was the sense of humor Patrick Rothfuss seemed so promising after his debut novel but I doubt his will be a lasting name unless his next book makes some majormprovements upon the pile of steaming crap he served us with The Wise Man s Fear He has obvious talent but lacks any skill to apply t to I have been accused of giving this book a poor rating simply because everyone else loved t This Abuse and Victimization across the Life Span is untrue You can take my words at face value I mean what I say I say this books terrible because I truly feel that The Idea of Biblical Poetry it IS terrible Not every books for everyone and this one The Idea of Biblical Poetry: Parallelism and Its History is not for me Just because.
