I know that we're not supposed to comment on other people's reviews, but I'm going to anyway. A reader mentioned his/her's frustration at the lack of resolution in Rothfuss' first novel of the Kingkiller Chronicles. I can see the reader's point, as I was definitely left wanting more. I think that was the point. Rothfuss, apparently, has a lot to tell us. And that's definitely okay with me.
As for what I came away with? Oh my. It is rare for me to finish a novel and immediately want to begin it again, but I did in this case. Not all of my questions have satisfactory answers yet, but I'm definitely willing to dive into the next novel to see if they get those answers.
I loved Kvothe. I loved the world. I loved the pictures that Rothfuss painted in my mind. The pace of the book, for me, took a while to get going but once it did? Again: oh my.
I only with the next book wasn't taking so long. But if it's as good as the first I'm willing to wait.
