Recommended Reading: The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

I had read quite a bit about this book and was following the writer's blog before even reading it, so I had a certain level of expectation going in. I wasn't let down though- far from it! I thoroughly enjoyed the book and became totally immersed in the story. Rothfuss is a very gifted writer who definitely knows how to tell a story (the book is huge, and it's also quite the page turner). The Name of the Wind is hands down one of the best books I've read.

From Amazon:'s Best of the Year...So Far Pick for 2007: Harry Potter fans craving a new mind-blowing series should look no further than The Name of the Wind--the first book in a trilogy about an orphan boy who becomes a legend. Full of music, magic, love, and loss, Patrick Rothfuss's vivid and engaging debut fantasy knocked our socks off. --Daphne Durham
