5 Better than the first, If thats possible!!surgey70 | 16/03/2011 | See all surgey70's reviews (3)I received this book yesterday after preordering from Play.com and i was not disappointed. First of all, it just looks amazing, the cover graphics and general size of the book adds to make it look very impressive indeed.As soon as i opened the first page i was hooked straight back in to the story. The opening chapter begins exactly where Name of the Wind left off and lets you catch straight up with the storyline once more, whats more is that through subtle hints and dialogue you remember exactly what happened at the end of the first book without having to read page after page of recapping.We also learn a bit more about "Kote" and the state of the present day world before being dragged feet first back into the life of Kvothe.I am only about 100 pages in as of yet, but i can guarantee that if you loved The Name of the Wind then The Wise Man's Fear is an absolute must. My #1 Book of the Year already and it will take a heck of a lot to beat.
