I am taking my time with The Name of the Wind, the 700 plus page debut novel by Patrick Rothfuss, and enjoying every page and paragraph. Literally! This book just hums along at very enjoyable pace, constantly changing gears. Keeping things interesting. This is easily one of the best pieces of fantasy literature I have ever read. The characters are well drawn, and the prose is as smooth as a newborn hobbit's butt.
I'll post a review of The Name of the Wind when I finish it, but I can already confidently recommend it. Hell, I'm already looking forward to the continuation that is due out in August of this year.
