The Wise Man's Fear, by Patrick Rothfuss

“There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.”

My Review


I had difficulty finding the words to review The Name of the Wind. For The Wise Man's Fear, those difficulties are amplified. Can I call these two books the greatest works of literature I've ever read? Perhaps that merely means my literary experience is not very vast, but this is how I feel.


If anything, the writing for this book improved over The Name of the Wind, if that is possible. And if you believe you know where the story for Wise Man's Fear is going after having just completed The Name of Wind, well, believe what you want. I personally doubt that you do.


I now understand the anxiety the fans of Patrick Rothfuss feel in regard to the release of Doors of Stone. For me, I have found a way to curb that anxiety. It is this; if I am forced to reread these books to refresh myself before reading the third one, that is hardly a punishment.


I hope someday to find a trilogy which enchants me as much as these first two books have. Beyond amazing, beyond engrossing. Just plain great.
