THE NAME OF THE WIND by Patrick Rothfuss

By rights I should have read this a long time ago, but I got it muddled up with another book which I didn't like, and so I never got round to reading it.

Then I was given the second book in the series for Christmas, started reading it, and quite enjoyed it. But I was a bit puzzled by some of its references, until one of my children inquired whether I had read the first in the series.  Which, of course, I hadn't.

Now I have, and I enjoyed it. It's a great take on the fantasy theme, with plenty of humour thrown in. I'm actually quite pleased I missed it first time around, becauyse lo and behold I had the next in the series awaiting me...

If you are an enthusiast for the fantasy genre, I think it's fair to say you shouldn't miss out on the Name of the Wind.
