The FangirlNation Online Book Club November Edition met with appropriate garb and drink as we discussed The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicle) by Patrick Rothfuss.Check out the recorded broadcast of the video down below featuring: Toni (senior correspondent of FangirlNation), Sarah (correspondent for FangirlNation) and our two guests: Nix of Firebrand Leather and Kellie of Kelldandy Cakes.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss is considered one of the most successful and popular epic fantasies currently out there. What makes this even more outstanding is that this is the first novel from Rothfuss and it has been picked up Lionsgate for a movie/television series. Good work Mr.Rothfuss!! (as the rest of crumble our papers and seep in jealousy).
The story is told in three books, each book representing a day of storytelling. While journeying, The Chronicler is saved and meets the legendary figure, The Kingkiller–who is tending to a lonely bar alongside his apprentice Bast. Reluctant at first, Kvothe tells his story from the beginning, with the brutal end of his family, his gritty orphan upbringing, and his rise to be at the University.
The novel is dense, immersive, and just one of the best stories out there. We all pretty much agreed how much we loved this book that why it warranted the attention it is getting. It is definitely a book that everyone should pick up and enjoy. We predict that the movie and/or the movie series will be epic. We are not allowing this to be a flop. Ya hear production people?! We are expecting this to be epic!
