The Kingkiller Chronicle is a fantasy trilogy by Patrick Rothfuss, telling the autobiography of Kvothe (pronounced like "Quothe" but with a v), an adventurer, arcanist, and famous musician. The plot is divided into two different action threads: the present, where Kvothe tells the story of his life to Devan Lochees (known as Chronicler) and Kvothe's past, where most of the story is located.
I just finished reading the second book in the trilogy and was thoroughly impressed. It's easily one of the best series i've read in my life and I chewed through it like a horde of starved children in a candy store. You all know how long it took me to get through the Game of Thrones books.. I got through these two in under a month.
Looking at the The Library thread this series is mentioned over many pages, so I thought it'd be good to center the discussion about it. I also find it funny the first post of The Library is Saro spouting about how good this book is.
I won't know what to do with myself any more, every spare minute i've had I have been reading this as it was just so eager to get back to it. Staying up late, just reading one more chapter which turns into 10. Getting a sneaky half hour in over lunch at my desk, few minutes here and there on the train home from work.
Will post more thoughts tomorrow, but it's very good so you should read it.
