LucidLunatic wrote:What I love best about The Name of the Wind is the writing. It truly approaches poetry in places. That and being able to see these grand adventures through the eyes of someone who didn't think they were so grand at the time. Kvothe doesn't go into things considering himself a hero- though unlike the 'anti-hero' archetype he doesn't actively avoid it either. After all, he fairly intentionally begins to build his own reputation. He simply pursues his own, very human, goals and ends up doing the incredible on the way. I can't even think of the last fantasy book I read where a recurring plot point was getting enough money to live on a day-to-day basis.
