Stunning fantasy debut

 Awesome doesn't even begin to describe

This is, by far, without a shadow of a doubt, no exaggeration - THE best book I've ever read. I've been waiting a year or so now for the sequel to come out, and it will undoubtedly be worth it.
This is the perfect balance between logic and fantasy, it kept me sustained throughout the entire read. I managed to finish it in one reading, despite its size.
It feels as if it starts a little slow, but you'll see once you get into it that the slow start was necessary for such a fantastic climax.
Only cons I would point out is that there's still another 6 months 'til the sequel.
Buy this book.

 Top Quality Fantasy

This book is an amazing read. For those who like fantasy and those who don't, you should read this book. It is told in the first person by Kvothe, an innkeeper who used to be somewhat of an adventurer, and the series is all about him and his life. This book was one of the best I have ever read and instantly becomes a classic. I eagerly anticipate the release of book number two.

 Just read it.

I have read a lot of books. This however, is the best book. For your own sake, I beg you to read it. No other book has gotten me this emotionally attached to the characters and the story. Fantastic universe, easy to grasp, endless depth, brilliantly written.

Do yourself a favor and read this book

 Extremely gripping - didn't want it to end!

The story starts off quite slow for the first few chapters, but once it finds its pace its an incredible story. You cant wait to find out what happens next. Its very skilfully written, really rich in detail, and it all feels really, really believable, for a fantasy.
The only problem is the ending - it feels so hurried, like Its just half a story. Which should explain the sequel. I would recommend for anyone who likes fantasy- or just a good story, but you will not be able to put it down!
