Praise

Praise for The Kingkiller Chronicle

The best epic fantasy I read last year.… He’s bloody good, this Rothfuss guy.” —George R. R. Martin, New York Times-bestselling author of A Song of Ice and Fire
 
“Rothfuss’ Kingkiller books are among the most read and re-read in our home. It’s a world you want to spend lifetimes in, as his many fans will attest.” —Lin-Manuel Miranda, Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of Hamilton

“Rothfuss has real talent, and his tale of Kvothe is deep and intricate and wondrous.” —Terry Brooks, New York Times-bestselling author of Shannara
 
“It is a rare and great pleasure to find a fantasist writing…with true music in the words.” —Ursula K. LeGuin, award-winning author of Earthsea
 
“The characters are real and the magic is true.” —Robin Hobb, New York Times-bestselling author of Assassin’s Apprentice
 
Masterful…. There is a beauty to Pat’s writing that defies description.” —Brandon Sanderson, New York Times-bestselling author of Mistborn
 
[Makes] you think he’s inventing the genre, instead of reinventing it.” —Lev Grossman, New York Times-bestselling author of The Magicians
 
“This is a magnificent book.” —Anne McCaffrey, award-winning author of the Dragonriders of Pern
 
The great new fantasy writer we’ve been waiting for, and this is an astonishing book.” —Orson Scott Card, New York Times-bestselling author of Ender’s Game

“It’s not the fantasy trappings (as wonderful as they are) that make this novel so good, but what the author has to say about true, common things, about ambition and failure, art, love, and loss.” —Tad Williams, New York Times-bestselling author of Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn
 
“An extremely immersive story set in a flawlessly constructed world and told extremely well.” —Jo Walton, award-winning author of Among Others
 
“Hail Patrick Rothfuss! A new giant is striding the land.” —Robert J. Sawyer, award-winning author of Wake
 
Fans of the epic high fantasies of George R.R. Martin or J.R.R. Tolkien will definitely want to check out Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind.” —NPR
 
Shelve The Name of the Wind beside The Lord of the Rings…and look forward to the day when it’s mentioned in the same breath, perhaps as first among equals.” —The A.V. Club
 
“Rothfuss (who has already been compared to the likes of Terry Goodkind, Robert Jordan, and George R. R. Martin) is poised to be crowned the new king of epic fantasy.” —Barnes & Noble
 
“I was reminded of Ursula K. Le Guin, George R. R. Martin, and J. R. R. Tolkien, but never felt that Rothfuss was imitating anyone.” —The London Times
 
“This fast-moving, vivid, and unpretentious debut roots its coming-of-age fantasy in convincing mythology.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
“This breathtakingly epic story is heartrending in its intimacy and masterful in its narrative essence.” —Publishers Weekly (starred)
 
“Reminiscent in scope of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series…this masterpiece of storytelling will appeal to lovers of fantasy on a grand scale.” —Library Journal (starred)
