What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? There's no better guide through these mind-expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and best-selling author Neil deGrasse Tyson. But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in digestible chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day.

One of the best books I've read since a very long time. It made me lose myself in toughs with every other sentence. Plus NdGT's voice is perfect for this...

Harry is a pain through out. Stephen Fry is always a plus but some of the tones he chose here are overdone. Of course most are purely brillant. The overall story lacks some coherence. Most of the time, I found myself wondering if all the Wizard World population was simply dumb, or if it was some poorly written scenaristic shortcuts. I've always loved the universe, but even that cannot compensate for the absurdities in this particular story, in terms of people's behaviors and general mood, i.e. how the story made me feel while reading, though this bit seems rather subjective, in the end. ^^

Sequel to the extraordinary The Name of The Wind, The Wise Man’s Fear is the second instalment of this superb fantasy trilogy from Patrick Rothfuss. This is the most exciting fantasy series since George R. R. Martin's A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, and a must for all fans of HBO's GAME OF THRONES.

Pat Rothfuss is a pure genius whose talent find a wrecked vessel in Rupert Degas lack of narrating talent. Where the story is rich and deep, the characters highly enjoyable and relatable, and the settings always so easy to picture, the monotony of the voices, the persistence to use deep voices and out of touch accents, and non synchronicité between tones and situations, succeeded on turning my favorite book in the World in one of the worst listening experience of my life.

I'm truly sorry for all those who discovered this book through this audio version : it really didn't honor it at all!

This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

Only surpassed by the following one, The Wise Man's Fear, The Name Of The Wind is undoubtedly the most well-crafted fantasy story of this century, so far.
It's too bad the telling does not always fit the writing. Some are too much, other not enough. Yet it was to be expected. Plus it's not that bad at all.

The stunning debut fantasy novel from author Peter V. Brett. The Painted Man, book one of the Demon Cycle, is a captivating and thrilling fantasy adventure, pulling the reader into a world of demons, darkness and heroes. Voted one of the top ten fantasy novels of 2008 by amazon.co.uk. Sometimes there is very good reason to be afraid of the dark…Eleven-year-old Arlen lives with his parents on their small farmstead, half a day's ride from the isolated hamlet of Tibbet's Brook.

Amazing story, albeit it could use a more accurate rendering of emotions. Peter V. Brett storytelling is so great I could almost hear the characters' voices while reading. Hearing them now in a most of the time different harmonic, set of emotions and tonality really made me unease. Still it was done well enough to be enjoyable. :)
