faults without completely uining it for you but suffice to say itwithout completely uining it for you but suffice to say it flabby where we don t care lean where we do Denna dominates fully 100 pages of screen time and is even annoying this time around and there are 60 full pages of egregious faery boning wherein Kvothe is schooled in the arts of love by an ancient mythical Fuck GoddessLastly and maybe I was spoiled by an Abercrombie special before I ead this in the shape of The Heroes There was no character development in this book Everyone in here feels flat one dimensional two dimensions tops for central characters and dull Until you eally force yourself to think about this you won t even notice it because his writing is that goodI have no doubt I ll ead the third one because at least half the book was an absolute blast but please please Edit himEDIT Score updated as I ecently stumbled upon this blog post and now think that ather than being a bit of a hopeless goon Patri. Oe y asesino Kvothe había borrado su astro Y ni siuiera ahora ue le han encontrado ni siuiera ni siuiera ahora ue le han encontrado ni siuiera ahora ue las tinieblas invaden los incones del mundo est?.
Ck Rothfuss has probably got Real Actual brain problems he should seek therapy to help him address 455 starsThe Wise Man s Fear had all the potential to be better than The Name of the Wind and although this is still an amazing book putting it in comparison with its preuel show how this one fell a bit short in ualityPicture The Wise Man s Fear main uoteThe plot of WMF still as simplistic as the previous book started on Day 2 straight after the end of NotW with Kvothe sharing his life journey to Chronicler with Bast listening to it If you think the pacing of NotW was slow believe me that Rothfuss managed to slow it down even Don t be fooled by my six days eading pace of this tome This is actually one of the slowest paced books I ever ead in my entire lifeAre the plot and pacing bad for the story No it s actually eally great it had the sense of danger that the previous book lacked and it still followed the oot of the series I ve always love slow paced or fast paced book eually but for a book that s filled with 994 pages Rothfuss could ve done so much with the story especially with its pacing Looking at it from bird s eye view the overall story is fantastic There are some important events that provide information to why the present world is in its state especially the meeting with a new entity called Ctaeh This meeting itself added a lot of depth to Kvothe s chronicle and the trilogy s overarching story It s only after this encounter that I ealized why KKC fans are so eager for what events may occur in The Doors of Stone However as great as the plot is WMF suffers from the infamous 2nd book syndrome in which there are a lot of unnecessary emphases on the filler contents The important story aren t given enough focus and the filler parts are given way too many I know the fillers parts are necessary for Kvothe s character development but they could ve been cut down or eplaced with something much important to the present story For example compiling from the available two book that s around 1600 pages out of those pages Kvothe spent around 600 pages in the University that s the entire length of NotW already I admit I love the time Kvothe spent in the University but I m starting to think Rothfuss had a horrible grudge with student tuition and student loan as those 600 pages and most of Kvothe s chronicle up to now had to do with settling that tuition ather than giving information on the Chandrian Also The Name of the Wind had Kvothe s chronicle told ight from he s 8 years old up to when he s 15 years old The Wise Man s Fear only focused on Kvothe s life until 17 years old that s only 2 years despite having almost 400 pages than NotWMy previous point doesn t mean that I dislike the book or saying that it s a negative point no it s not I stated that only to emphasize that the plot HAD a lot of potential to be engrossing than the current state The worst part of the book for me however should not be a surprise to anyone who has ead this already Denna This is what made my eading enjoyment of this book decreased Not only Denna s personality encapsulates everything I don t ever want to see in a girl Kvothe s hundreds of pages infatuation with her is eally tedious and infuriating to ead Kvothe s and Denna s stupid omance eally put a sour taste to my enjoyment of the book it was okay in NotW but it only got worse here that I literally face palmed myself at one point For me every time Denna is not in the picture the story became compelling despite how slow paced and fillery it is it s not an exaggeration to say that Denna is one of the worst heroine of all time out of all medium for me Luckily this part is the only problem I had with the book the characters the scarce actions music world building and prose still work together in bringing the charm of the seriesKvothe s has a lot of greatly written character development whether you like it or not it eally depends on your preferences and patience I personally like it I do think again his sex spree ever since his meeting with Felurian could be cut down a bit Kvothe himself as a character is uite complex yes he s a genius kind hearted charming and talented but at the same time he s also temperament stupid in love and made a lot of ash decision which kinda eualized his character It s the uestions we can t answer that teach us the most They teach we can t answer that teach us the most They teach how to think If you give a man an answer all he gains is a little fact But give him a uestion and he ll look for his own answers The other side characters Bast Simmon Wilem Elodin Auri and a new addition Tempi continue to captivate me I love their interactions developments and can t wait to see how the story concludes for Kvothe and them in the last bookThe magic system Sympathy which in my opinion is a combination of Voodoo Dolls curse mixed with science eceived a lot of focus here and I was eally enthralled by it To see how it finally utilized in combat is amazing Don t get me wrong as before the action scenes are eally scarce in fact out of two books in total you ll only see around 50 pages of actions give or take but when it s there it s written eally wellPicture Kvothe The ArcaneThe book s focus on music continued to be my favorite part of the series despite lacking in content compared with the other factors this time it s a hapsody that I can t ever get enough of I love how the music were implemented with the world building which I must say is fantastic to say the least Amazing exploration on the lore different cultures from each part of the world and intricate metafictional stories within stories combined with Rothfuss s highest ank prose the book never fails to capture my attention when it doesn t have Denna in the plot Anyone can love a thing because That s as easy as putting a penny in your pocket But to love something despite To know the flaws and love them too That is are and pure and perfect At the end of Day 2 this particular uote summed up exactly how I feel about The Wise Man s Fear Yes the book has it flaws and missed potential but despite that I still love this book and the trilogy I eally enjoyed eading it and I will definitely ecommend this trilogy to anyone who s looking for an intricately great adult high fantasy book This is going to be included into one of my favorite trilogy of all time and Doors of Stone have a huge potential to turn it into the number one best trilogy of all time for me But as we all know Rothfuss pretty much pushed himself into a corner with his storytelling decision on this bookThere are way too many things to esolved in Kvothe s legend and stories from the past and he also has to conclude the present story as #Well Unless The Last #Unless the last is around 2000 pages which it won t be since Rothfuss confirmed that already I eally don t know how it can have a satisfying conclusion but if it can then this will truly be a trilogy to emember it already is When you wait a few span or month to hear a finished song the anticipation adds savor But after a year excitement begins to sour Kvothe The Name of the Wind How about 6 years for a book Oh well that particular Door won t be opened for many years to come I predict 2021 or probably never anyway Overall the unfinished Kingkiller Chronicle is a fantastic high adult fantasy it had it flaws but the method of storytelling is uniue and engrossing that you should ead it do take into mind though that you e going to wait for a LONG time for the conclusion of the trilogy before starting itPicture The Wise Man s Fear by Marc Simonetti You can find this and the est of my Adult EpicHigh Fantasy Sci Fi eviews at Booknest. ? dispuesto a egresar Pero su historia prosigue la aventura continúa y Kvothe seguirá
