'My name is Kvothe, pronounced nearly the same as 'quothe'. Names can tell you a great deal about a person. I've had more names than anyone has a right to. My first mentor called me E'lir because I was clever and I knew it. My first lover called me Dulator because she liked the sound of it. I have been called Shadicar, Lightfinger, and Six-String. I have been called Kvothe the Bloodless, Kvothe the Arcane, and Kvothe Kingkiller. I have earned those names. Bought and paid for them. But I was brought up as Kvothe. My father once told me it meant 'to know'. I have, of course, been called many other things. Most of them uncouth, although very few were unearned. 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. You may have heard of me.' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Koth, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling 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. If you only read one fantasy novel this year, make this the title you pick up - The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

  1. Riktigt bra fantasy
    Viktoria, 9 september 2014

    Lite seg i starten, men blir sedan mycket fängslande när man får lära känna huvudkaraktärerna. En bok som är svår att lägga ifrån sig!

  2. Helt otrolig!!!
    En stor fantasynörd , 23 januari 2014

    En utav de bästa böcker jag läst, om inte den bästa! Rothfuss skriver på ett sätt som bara han kan: enkelt, vackert, poetiskt och underbart fyndigt.

    Detta är en sådan bok som du stäckläser långt in på natten, bara för att du måste läsa ett kapitel till. En sådan bok som gör att du börjar gapskratta på bussen och inte ens bryr dig om folk tittar konstigt på dig. En bok som du kommer gå runt och tänka på i flera veckor efter att du läst ut den. En underbar bok helt enkelt!

Övrig information

Patrick Rothfuss had the good fortune to be born in Wisconsin in 1973, where the long winters and lack of cable television encouraged a love of reading and writing. After abandoning his chosen field of chemical engineering, Pat became an itinerant student, wandering through clinical psychology, philosophy, medieval history, theater, and sociology. Nine years later, Pat was forced by university policy to finally complete his undergraduate degree in English. When not reading and writing, he teaches fencing and dabbles with alchemy in his basement. Patrick Rothfuss is an award-winning as well as Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author.
