I think it's only fair to say that I should back out of this. I've not articulated myself as well as I should have, and some of my comments have been - I admit - unnecessarily critical or harsh. It isn't my place to criticse Rothfuss so heavily without reading his books, simply basing my arguments on recurring elements of reviews.

Hopefully anyone hasn't found my posts too frustrating, but if they have, then I apologise.
