THE NAME OF THE WIND

Son of a bitch....I just finished The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss....remember how excited I was over the latest Dean Koontz book and the Dark Materials?...Well, they suck bite and blow compared to this book..I fucking love it...It is was pie I would have eaten it already..If it was Antonio Banderas I would have fucked him...three times..and been standing by waiting for him to catch some zee's before jumping his bones again...This book rocks...I didn't want to put it down...I didn't want it to end...and when I got to the last 30 pages and realized that there was more story left and not enough pages I knew that this was going to be a series..ooooh lovely day in Valhalla..I want to buy 100 copies and just give them to everyone I know that is a big reader and loves books..
So run, do not walk, to the nearest book store or library and get this book...promise me..you won't be sorry..You will love me for it..You will write sonnets to me...leave me money in your will and offer to whisk me off to some deserted island to have your way with me..(well, maybe not)...But I know one thing and one thing for sure..
You'll be one happy motherfucker when you read page 662..

Mama Kelly said...

Just added it to my wishlist ... but purchase will have to wait until April when the paperback comes out

:-(

Nit Wit said...

I'd go out right now and buy it but I spent all my money on beer and lewd women. Unless The Boss will share some of her bingo winnings. Might have to wait till Friday.
I guess I'll have to finish Duma Key now.

billy pilgrim said...

right now i'm on a streak of wrestling biographies, take a look in the catalog for rothfuss when i'm done with rasslin.

sage:i like to run around nekkid during the summer time..when i lived in my little house before i moved to the old farts retirement apts. i would go out at midnight and do nekkid rain dances...on just nekkid dances for the hell of it...i miss that..
rocky:hmm, the book is about Kvothe(pronounced like quothe).
It starts out at an inn where the inn keeper Kote(who is really Kvothe) is tending to his business..and then there are demons, and townspeople..and a chronociler who realizes that Kote is Kvothe and ends up writing his life story...which is what it's all about ..the first book is The Name of the Wind, the Kingkiller Chronicle :Day one..it's about Kvothe's life from his time with his parents, to his going to the Univesity (all of this takes place in a country like England but not...)..to the start of his adventures..It's like harry potter, but not...no forget the harry potter inference..Kvothe kicks harry potters ass...trust me..you'll love it..
more cowbell:antonio banderas...Sigh*
Kath:good girl..let me know how you like it..

jan said...

So...you liked it? I've been reading through the list you gave earlier, but I've got the library on high alert for this one. Thanks.

Anne Johnson said...

I'll give you my two children and my two cats and my parrot if you get that excited over my novel when it comes out. If you can't beat 'em, bribe 'em!

Seriously, thanks for the tip. If it's better than Dark Materials, it's tops.

Pixie said...

texlahoma said...

I'll tell shelly about it, I have to take ritalin to read anything longer than a few pages.

The Reverend Jon Boles said...

I'm about halfway through Cormac McCarthy's "No Country For Old Men." Enjoying it so far. Definitely see why the Coen Brothers made it into a movie; very violent and filled with dark humor.

Christie said...

I rushed down to OKC to the B&N, and they had to order it?! But I'll be patient.

anonymous:sigh*...that's sooo far away...

Elizabeth said...

Yes Ma'am! I'll get right on it!

Nit Wit said...

When the library here gets a new book the waiting list is about 6 months before you get to read it.
I prefer to own my own hardcover books. One thing I do is read them again and again.
I also read a lot while eating which can get messy.
Now back to watching the space shuttle on NASA TV.

Sweet, will have to check this one out. I've been doing the audio book thing lately; hopefully it's available in that format.
