The Name of the Wind: Review

2913377I finally finally finished this book, not that the book is boring or anything, i just did not have the time to read it! On the contrary this book is simply brilliant. Soon, after reading it, I had to put this book in my all-time-favorite-books-list.

It is not your usual adventure tale, this story is told in a narrative (fictional) autobiography style which itself is quite unique, and as a story-reader I really enjoyed. But the real beauty of this book, apart from the amazing story and plot, is the writing. Not that I’m a language and literature professional, but I can tell when something is written nicely. Rothfuss, the author, has a true gift for writing, and that’s what made this book extra special.

The Plot is outstanding, keeps you hooked up. At first nothing makes any sense, but as you keep going, everything will fall into place, leaving you stunned by the details and thought which went to create such a story. One thing I did learn after knowing “Kvothe’s story” was that never to judge a person as they appear to be, you never know what has happened in their life and what they are going through.
The story has its ups and down of entertaining and boring parts, but I didn’t find any part that dragged, somehow anything mentioned will have a role to play as the story progresses.

I really look forward to reading the second part as this part is not the end of Kvothe’s adventures.

I definitely recommend this to you if you like mature adventures, with magic involved, dark era setting, and where you can’t predict what will happen next.

Overall 5 out of 5.

My Top Series of All-Time

Hey guys!

Whenever someone asks me to recommend a book to them, I get so torn between which book to choose because it’s not necessary that what I’ve liked in a particular book work for all. While some books are good, some are great, but a few become memorable, and that last part is completely subjective on how and what you were feeling in real life while reading the story.

For me, the following series come to my mind whenever I’m discussing recommendations. All the series are fictional and are arranged by genres. They are in not in any particular rank and only the first book is linked.

ALSO PRIME DAY IS HERE, which means IT’S TIME FOR A BOOK HAUL!

 

AND let’s not forget that MY BOOK, Shards,  IS ON SALE (July 16-19th)!
