Description

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. Picking up the tale of Kvothe Kingkiller once again, we follow him into exile, into political intrigue, courtship, adventure, love and magic . . . and further along the path that has turned Kvothe, the mightiest magician of his age, a legend in his own time, into Kote, the unassuming pub landlord. Packed with as much magic, adventure and home-grown drama as The Name of the Wind, this is a sequel in every way the equal to its predecessor and a must for all fantasy fans.

Engaging and gripping, The Wise Man’s Fear is the biggest and the best new fantasy novel out there.

2 books 2 narrators

Nick Podehl telling was much better than Rupert Degas’ Too bad only Degas did book 2. Way too many accents, hard to understand while Podehl’s was so easy to follow (even for a French)

Best story ever but oh so poorly narrated

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!

Simply wonderful.

The story and the stories within the story are just amazingly captivating. The narrators voice will keep your attention for hours and still wanting more.

Awesome Series

What does Rupert Degas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I honestly don't think there are words to express what richness and depth Rupert Degas' character voices brought to this audio book. Such amazing range and authenticity, I was totally and utterly lost in his narration.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next in the series to be turned into an audio book!

2nd in Series, still Excellent

Much of what I said in my review of the first book of the Kingkiller Chronicles still applies. There are sections here that tend to be rather long-winded, but all is forgiven in writing which is this good.

I'm afraid the talented Rothfuss/Degas duo may have spoilt me for any other fantasy novels, but I'll keep hoping for an equal. (Or at least close).

Why different narrator?

Loved the book, but would have liked to have the same narrator as the first, and all in one book. This guy was good, but the shift was jarring. Am very annoied at what I assume are some weird licencing rules.

Can't wait for day 3

This is an example of how a good story can develop a sequel that captures the same intriguing mysteries and colorful characters as the original. Can't wait for part 3.

Great, but a bit long winded in parts

There are parts of this book I thought were amazing and others I skipped through. All in all I enjoyed the descriptive writing and great characterisation but there were parts that dragged.

Any additional comments?

Flawless part one of book two of the series, capturing me just as much as the first book did. There is just too many good things to say about this book. I couldn't have asked for more and I loved every bit of it. A must read for any fantasy lover.

Rupert Degas does it again!

Any additional comments?

A fantastic second book. Now an eager wait for the third... Having tried the versions with both Nick Pohdl and Degas I can warmly recommend Rupert Degas for his deep and wide range of voices, and somehow the British accent lend itself better to epic story telling. For some reason the Degas version is split in 2 parts but it is really worth the extra credit.

A Unique Fantasy Tale

What a breath of fresh air. Extraordinary beings are made believable and relatable. Love the series and I'm eagerly anticipating the next book.

Thankyou to Patrick Rothfuss for retiring from being a professional student and becoming a talented author. Please keep it up.

Thankyou to Rupert Degas for turning the words into a magical experience.

Part two of the masterpiece

If you could sum up The Wise Man's Fear (Part One) in three words, what would they be?

Amazing story, period!

What did you like best about this story?

The diversity of the situations Kvothe gets involved with.

What does Rupert Degas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He give amazing life to all the characters. He is hands down the best performer of the once you'll find in audible

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me laugh several times.

Any additional comments?

This story is going to have you on the edge all the time. All the parts have a meaning so be patient when it appears to drive away from the main plot. The Felurian part is wonderful!My only complain is why it was decided to divide the book in 2 parts? The other version found here is just one audiobook of forty-something hours so why not Degas' one? I could not help to feel that they want to leech more money from the consumers. It is still worth to pay for this version that is divided in two because Degas really injects something that the other performer cannot match. This is the only reason because I did not give it 5 starts on the overall category.

Rupert Degas is trully amazing

Apart from the book itself wich needs no more praises than it already has, i can only thank Rupert Degas for a wonderful and deep storytelling. It is obvious that the narrator had a special care for the characters as ALL of them had diferent accents, and we can always tell wich character he was impersonating by his narrating. Hands down my favorite. And i wish he did more fantasy, because i sincerelly would listen just for his narrating. 10 stars!

ACHTUNG: Halbe Audioqualität zum vollen Preis...

Der zweite Tag einer wirklich spannenden Lebensgeschichte. Geschichte und Sprecher sind absolut empfehlenswert. 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.

Beautiful

The language, the performance, the story. All of it is beautiful. Anyone even remotely interested in Fantasy novels should give the Kingskiller Chronicles a try. Also as a woman it always makes me gleeful how well all the women are written.

Fantasy for the patient reader

If you read the prequel, Name of the Wind, you will realize that the pace and style of the story did not change much.
Readers, who expected a narrative, which would increase their heart rate a little bit, will be disappointed. There is not much action and the suspense is as lukewarm as it was in the first book.
Readers, who enjoyed the beautiful lanquage, the colorful and poetic description of the first book, will love this book as well.
The book consists of 2 parts, Kvothe at the University and Kvothe as an assistant of an aristocrat.
The University part is not different from the first book, the same friends, the same enemies, the same painful lovestory and of course the continuous struggle with poverty.
The scenery changes, when Kvothe becomes part of the entourage of an aristocrat and there are some dramatic developments, but as before, the suspense comes in small doses.

It is a lengthy, slow moving story, but there is a lot of beauty and style. To my surprise, some of the characters gain a lot more profile, a definite improvement versus the first part.

Rupert Degas rockt!

Eines der besten Hörbücher die ich bisher gehört habe. Schon als Buch sind die Kingslayer Chronicles fantastich aber Rupert Degas haucht diesen erst richtig Leben ein.

Rupert Degas ist für mich schnell zu DER Stimme von Kvothe geworden und auch die anderen Charaktere stellt er fantastisch dar.

Jetzt wo ich Buch 2 (beide Teile) fertig gehört habe bin ich etwas traurig. :)

Different performer from the first book

The problem is not that the performance is bad. It's simply different in Names /Accents from the first one, which makes it quite uncomfortable for the first hour or two.

Highly recommended!

I was absolutely addicted. I must admit, that there was a bit of a lull in the story from about chapter 100 to 120. I didn't enjoy these chapters as much and this is why, I have only given it 4 stars. There was also a little mistake in the audio during chapter 150 at 4mins and 32seconds...a bit that gets repeated. Other than that, I listened at any chance I could get and was completely immersed in this insanely good book.
