Description

I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the university at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.

So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeeper - from his childhood in a troupe of travelling players, through his years spent as a near feral orphan in a crime riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic.

In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.

The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best.

Read by Rupert Degas.

Boring, I recommend this book to no one :(

Unfortunately, i found this book very uninteresting and difficult to finish. Although the variety of themes and persons involved, there is no real intrigue. The performance was fine though.

Amazing half a book...

Patrick Rothfuss is a out and out genius. His writing is poetic yet accurate and builds a engrossing world. It is such a let down that such a great read cannot be finished. I have listened to the slow regard for silent things, and the first half of his second book. But for some reason the second part of both books are not available in Africa. I know that Africa is a backwards continent but at least do us the decency to finish a great story. This Internet is slow enough already......

One of the best books I have ever listened to

What did you love best about The Name of the Wind (Part One)?

Great story, engaging characters, this is a book that will hold your attention from cover to cover or you will find reasons to take a very long drive just to hear more.

What about Rupert Degas’s performance did you like?

Excellent and believable performance brings the story to life

Not quite 5 stars

While well written, book is a bit slow in parts and the adventures become repetitive. Reading is good.

teenage heroic fantasy adventure novel

good writing and performance, but I want my 28 hours back! it's much longer than it should be, and the ending is meant to entice the reader to buy the next book, which is even longer.
The book does a surprisingly good job at introducing that world of strange magic, and explaining its source, which even makes sense to some degree. The characters, however could use more depth. Overall a captivating read, but leaves some things to be desired.

Totally overrated story

in spite of all the rave reviews of this book, i found this story slow, directionless, and at times down right boring. i should have read all the reviews that complained about the lack of an underlying plot to this story before wasting 29 hours listening to this.
no i will not reading the 2nd book, and as for third ... who cares?

Amaising Book, Amaising Performance

What did you love best about The Name of the Wind (Part One)?

First and foremost I have to comment that the performance that Rupert Degas gave in this book was absolutely stunning. He truly gave life to the characters. Even though I read the accents as different when reading the paper version, Rupert takes his impression of the characters to hights and actually fills the characters with more life than my imagination did. Nice One Mate

What did you like best about this story?

This story was truly new and distinct for me. As one that has been mired in classic Tolkien style fantasy since childhood Patrick Rothfuss has given me a vivid new world to lose myself in.

Though the story in the first book doesn't try to paint a huge amount of detail about the world you do get a clear indication of the time and technology of the setting. What Patrick does do is give a wonderful interplay between characters that are both believable and unique. The book is very character centric ,as you would expect from a book written mainly in the first person, but it is the quality that the characters are realised that makes this book truly a work of art. I can't wait for the next book. (*looks sternly at the publishing company for not releasing it sooner >8 | )

The only problem I had with the book (and let me say this is the moan of a person that wants more than is good for him) is that it finished too soon. Like one of those batman tv shows that stops just as things get really intense. I know its not a good reason to give the story 4 stars instead of 5, but since the next book in the series is not available in australia we can all just blame the publisher ;)

Decent story ruined by ridiculous narrating

A pretty decent story overall, I will get the second book, but it is somewhat ruined by the ridiculous narration. The guy actually shouts when characters are speaking loudly, which results in a pretty annoying difference in volume at times. Still I got through it and otherwise he is good at making different voices for characters.

I love the this book so much

I expected more from the songs, because it's a key part of the story. But in general I am really satisfied with this book.

Großartig

The Name of the Wind ist eins der besten Fantasybücher der letzen 20 Jahre. Quasi ein Harry Potter für Erwachsene.
Das Hörbuch ist gut gelesen, allerdings brauchte ich eine gewisse Eingewöhnungszeit. Umgangssprachliche Passagen habe nicht immer verstehen können, zumal sie manchmal sehr schnell gesprochen wurden. Das ist z. B. beim Song of Ice and Fire deutlich besser.
Sehr angenehm ist, dass die Kapitel nicht sooo lang sind, was bei mir mit dem Einschlaftimer bis Kapitelende gut passte.
Genug geschrieben - Day 2 wartet.

ACHTUNG: Halbe Audioqualität zum vollen Preis...

Eine meiner Lieblingsserien, eine fantasievolle Welt mit liebevoll gezeichneten Charakteren. Besonders die Magie hat es mir angetan. Inhalt und Sprecher verdienen die vollen fünf Sterne.

Was mich dagegen sehr ärgert ist die halbierte Klangqualität die sehr an eine 70er Jahre Telefonverbindung erinnert!
Ein Blick in die technischen Daten offenbart:
Audio: aac, 22050 Hz, stereo, 62 kb/s - Normal wäre: 44100 Hz, stereo, 125 kb/s

Halbierter Frequenzbereich und halbierte Bitrate, was auch deutlich zu hören ist - und ja, ich habe beim Download "Beste Qualität" ausgewählt.

Für den vollen Preis finde ich das ziemlich unverschämt, daher nur einen Stern in der Gesamtbewertung.

Great story without a question, but ...

The speaker does a really bad job in characterizing the characters and exaggerates it with his interpretation he voices beyond the unrecognizability of the mood of the book. Hes having a great voice, but it often feels like he doesn't really know the book.

Rather boring

After raving reviews on some social media I was expecting a very special new fantasy world, but was sorely disappointed.
The world building wasn't anything that hasn't been done in various classics like LOTR etc.
The hero, although supposedly incredibly clever, was neither interesting nor likeable. Most relevant characters were male, and the female characters lacked definition.
The whole story went on and on without getting more exciting, and the intervowen love story didn't manage to make the whole thing more interesting. The main love interest was supposed to be mysterious and amazingly beautiful, but just managed to seem annoying.
The reader although excellent at accents, tended to be sloppy with his endings, which was almost unbearable.
All in all not a very enjoyable listening experience. I kept hoping it would be getting better, but gave up at the third part.

Großartig! Nur ein Pferdefuß...

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

Ein ganz wunderbares Hörbuch. Tolle Geschichte, tolle Figuren, fantastischer Sprecher. Das einzige Negative ist, dass es der Author mit dem letzten Teil auf sich warten lässt.

Tried to like it, but couldn't.

Kvothe, the main charakter can do no wrong. He is best at absolutely everything. The writing is decent, even though sometimes overburdened with allegories. The story is tedious. Characters are flat and act like comic book vilains and heroes.

Great story, fabulously read

The story rounded up by diverse characters, an interesting system of magic and all its levels in a medivial society where the main character has to stand ups and downs while developing towards a creature you can guess at the end because the author will not tell in this part of the serie.

Loved the idea of the protagonist being a master story teller! It checks all the other boxes too.
