This is the riveting first-person narrative of Kvothe, a young man who grows to be one of the most notorious magicians his world has ever seen. From his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, to years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that transports readers into the body and mind of a wizard.

Why is it on the list Twice? Oh, I see, you forgot the "s" at the end of Chronicles the second time. Might want to correct this

so this is the same story as rastlin Marje from the dragonlnace series yet everyone says dragonlance was a bad story line that didnt add anything to the genre that wasn't already there

So far, I've only read "The Name of the Wind" and found it a slow read. Maybe the next two books will pick up the pace, but I've heard they dont'.

I have never tried so hard to like a book. I just can't get through it. I don't understand the great reviews, it just crawls on and on and on with nothing of substance happening. There's just to much good stuff out there to keep trying to get through this boredom.

A great series, but I would strongly recommend NOT starting it until the author pulls his finger out and actually finished the latest book. There are many people who believe that he's never actually going to finish the series, so there may never be resolution to the plot. I like the story, but once I have managed to obtain and read the final book in the trilogy I won't be reading anything else by Rothfuss until the series is complete.
