DescriptionThe riveting first-person narrative of a young man who grows to be the most notorious magician his world has ever seen. From his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime- ridden city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, "The Name of the Wind" is a masterpiece that transports readers into the body and mind of a wizard. It is a high-action novel written with a poet's hand, a powerful coming-of-age story of a magically gifted young man, told through his eyes: to read this book is to be the hero.

Reviews for The Name of the Wind
By far my favourite book I've read. If your into fantasy this is a must read! by Johann Roache
Finally a solid fantasy novel. Patrick Rothfuss has all the necessary elements of an excellent story teller. I can only hope the following books in the series will be half as good by Hagai Yanai
I've never read anything like this! Patrick's style of writing is wholly unprecedented in my experience. Definitely read this book if you like fantasy, magic, mystery,... While reading, the taleteller keeps you fascinated by keeping you in the dark on the whole, but shedding just a bit of light on part of the puzzle at exactly the right times. It's tragic, funny, horrifying, touching and fascinating at the same time. by Stephanie Vandenbroucke
