BOOK REVIEW: THE NAME OF THE WIND BY PATRICK ROTHFUSS

They say, writers should write what they love and Patrick Rothfuss seems to do so. He love stories. Telling them is one thing but to live and tell them is astonishing. And how a writer can live in the stories?… By his imagination. Imagination is infinite. You certainly don’t have to pay for it. It is legal to use. And it’s the best thing a human has got, I believe.  The Name of the Wind . At first, I never wanted to read it. But then, when strongly recommended by one of my friend, I borrowed his copy and read it. Now I can say, I can’t wait to read the second.  The Name of the Wind  introduce us to Kvothe, a figure which is hard to ignore not because he has red hair but because the mysterious intelligence the character has.

At the start level, the book is slow for a few pages, and it took me sometime to adjust. May be I was reading after a long time. But after reading the book, I read the starting few pages again. And I must say the style used by Patrick keeps things as simple as possible and he tries to create an enclosure by his words such that if a reader is immerse in his words, he will find hard to emerge out back to reality. The book, I must say, after reading 50-70 pages is very hard to put down. Though they say, the start and the end defines a book, I must correct them, ‘their’ saying might work for a story or a novella for they are short in length but for 600 plus page novel like The Name of the Wind you need to give it some time and at least 50-70 pages might be sufficient to start being judgmental about the book. Most of the times  this will work for fantasies as they happen to be a bit bulky in the length.

As I said the story will bind you from it roots and you will be immersed in the world of Kvothe. The culture, the geography ,the background of the story and especially my favorite part, the characters, which are developed at such a level that they won’t disappoint the reader. According to one interview, Rothfuss spent 14 years in developing this trilogy and I don’t know the truth, nor am I being judgmental here.

So I would recommend this book, but then you might end up reading the trilogy.

3.5 out of 5 from me.

How many books do you read in a week?

I was wondering just how many books most of you read in a week?  Now me, I can read anywhere between 4-6 books a week. THIS depends on how I feel and if the book is real interesting.   Sometimes I can even read a book a day. My friends and fellow associates at work joke that everyday they see me I have a new book to read. Sometime they are right.  Now my oldest niece and nephew read just as fast as I do. When they run out of books to read on their kindle , they will log on to my account and read a book from my library. They will even go in my room and look at the 600-800 books that I have in there that need to be read or I have read. Their taste in books run pretty close to mine. I actually taught both of them how to read pretty young. My nephew who is 20 learned how to read at about 8 months old,  my niece who is 17 learned at 4 years old. We later learned she had autism, which caused her dyslexia. Now she does not let that stop her with anything she wants to do.
