The Name Of The Wind
The Kingkiller Chronicle: Book 1
Sobre o livro
'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life.
I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.
The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.
The Name of the Wind
Patrick Rothfuss consegue cativar o leitor com esta obra fantástica e extremamente bem escrita. Recomendo para fãs de fantasia, Harry Potter e para quem gosta de uma boa aventura. :)
Rothfuss e a sua Crónica do Matador do Rei vêm juntar poesia e música à narrativa de uma forma nunca antes vista no universo da fantasia. O relato de Kvothe surge a um nível bastante próximo do belíssimo retrato de uma Terra chamada Média da autoria do "pai" Tolkien. E pensar que o nome do vento é a primeira obra de Patrick Rothfuss...
