In this case the beginning is The Name of the Wind you can go back and look at my review, but basically it says you should read it and now I think you should read this one too.
Reasons to continue reading the Kingkiller Chronicles:
Secondarily: Seriously, why wouldn’t you? There are so many unanswered questions, don’t you need to find out what happens next???
Sixth and lastly: There is no coddling of the reader. I hate books that spend the first 30 pages bringing you “up to date” with information from previous books. This effectively treats readers like idiots who can’t be bothered to remember what already happened. Not to worry, you’ll be treated like the brilliant reader you are when you open this book up!
Thirdly: He’s gets people. I don’t know how better to say it without being cheesy and corny. The characters make the books, the characters make the story, Rothfuss has got dang good characters.
