DAY ONE: THE NAME OF THE WIND

My name is Kvothe.

I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

You may have heard of me.

So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature-the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

  • PROLOGUE
    A Silence of Three Parts

    It was night again. The Waystone Inn lay in silence, and it was a silence of three parts.

    The most obvious part was a hollow, echoing quiet, made by things that were lacking. If there had been a wind it would have sighed through the trees, set the inn's sign creaking on its hooks, and brushed the silence down the road like trailing autumn leaves. If there had been a crowd, even a handful of men inside the inn, they would have filled the silence with conversation and laughter, the clatter and clamor one expects from a drinking house during the dark hours of night. If there had been music...but no, of course there was no music. In fact there were none of these things, and so the silence remained.

    Inside the Waystone a pair of men huddled at one corner of the bar. They drank with quiet determination, avoiding serious discussions of troubling news. In doing this they added a small, sullen silence to the larger, hollow one. It made an alloy of sorts, a counterpoint.

    The third silence was not an easy thing to notice. If you listened for an hour, you might begin to feel it in the wooden floor underfoot and in the rough, splintering barrels behind the bar. It was in the weight of the black stone hearth that held the heat of a long dead fire. It was in the slow back and forth of a white linen cloth rubbing along the grain of the bar. And it was in the hands of the man who stood there, polishing a stretch of mahogany that already gleamed in the lamplight.

    The man had true-red hair, red as flame. His eyes were dark and distant, and he moved with the subtle certainty that comes from knowing many things.

    The Waystone was his, just as the third silence was his. This was appropriate, as it was the greatest silence of the three, wrapping the others inside itself. It was deep and wide as autumn's ending. It was heavy as a great river-smooth stone. It was the patient, cut-flower sound of a man who is waiting to die.

    CHAPTER ONE
    A Place for Demons

    It was Felling Night, and the usual crowd had gathered at the Waystone Inn. Five wasn't much of a crowd, but five was as many as the Waystone ever saw these days, times being what they were.

    Old Cob was filling his role as storyteller and advice dispensary. The men at the bar sipped their drinks and listened. In the back room a young innkeeper stood out of sight behind the door, smiling as he listened to the details of a familiar story.

    "When he awoke, Taborlin the Great found himself locked in a high tower. They had taken his sword and stripped him of his tools: key, coin, and candle were all gone. But that weren't even the worst of it, you see..." Cob paused for effect, "...cause the lamps on the wall were burning blue!"

    Graham, Jake, and Shep nodded to themselves. The three friends had grown up together, listening to Cob's stories and ignoring his advice.

    Cob peered closely at the newer, more attentive member of his small audience, the smith's prentice. "Do you know what that meant, boy?" Everyone called the smith's prentice "boy" despite the fact that he was a hand taller than anyone there. Small towns being what they are, he would most likely remain "boy" until his beard filled out or he bloodied someone's nose over the matter.

    The boy gave a slow nod. "The Chandrian."

    "That's right," Cob said approvingly. "The Chandrian. Everyone knows that blue fire is one of their signs. Now he was-"

    "But how'd they find him?" the boy interrupted. "And why din't they kill him when they had the chance?"

    "Hush now, you'll get all the answers before the end," Jake said. "Just let him tell it."

    "No need for all that, Jake," Graham said. "Boy's just curious. Drink your drink."

    "I drank me drink already," Jake grumbled. "I need t'nother but the innkeep's still skinning rats in the back room." He raised his voice and knocked his empty mug hollowly on

An innkeeper and his apprentice, that's what one is supposed to find. But Chronicler knows better.

But Chronicler knows better. He has come to the legendary Kvothe to write down his story - the truth and not all the stories that have evolved around time. The stories are exaggerated of course and a lot of them pure fiction, but Kvothes' real story is anything but plain and simple... It might not sound that enthralling. Someone sitting in an inn and telling his lifetime story. But it actually is! Rothfuss has such a brilliant way of creating a story in a story, of stetting things up in a tavern just to immediately pull you out again and into the world he has created. Kvothes story is honest up to the very last detail and yet so moving and engaging that I couldn't stop reading. I have to admit though that the book takes it's time to really get rolling, especially when Kvothe describes what happened to him the first years after his encounter with of the Chandrian. And it is also not a novel to read in a day or two during your coffee break. This story demands time and attention of the reader. BUT good stories take their time to be told and when you decide to stick with it you will be rewarded a thousand times! What I enjoyed most was that every time when I had been consumed by Kvothes story, some event (like a visitor) would draw me back into the tavern, reminding me that I am as well just a listener to a story. It is very well made (not at all in a way that bothers you while reading). But the thing I liked best about the book is that the prologue is repeated at the end. It was such a nice experience because it really send of the feeling that the story has been wrapped into these words. It also gave the notion that this was the first part of the story, a little bit like a play on stage being cut into acts. Very well done.

Schon lange habe ich kein Buch mehr gelesen, welches einen so eleganten Schreibstil aufweist und trotzdem nicht hochgestochen wirkt. Kvothe ist ein Held, der auf Anhieb sympatisch ist. Er ist zwar mächtig, hat aber Fehler und Schwächen, die in nahbarer machen als andere Helden. Die Geschichte ist so genial aufgegleist, ich habe es einfach so verschlungen. Den zweiten Band 'Wise mans fear" habe ich ebenfalls schon gelesen, genauso gut. Jetzt warte ich, wie so viele andere auf den dritten Band, der hoffentlich bald mal kommen wird.

Rothfuss verfügt über ein irrsinniges Erzähltalent und das nützt er von der ersten Seite weg aus. Sprachlich auf überaus hohem Niveau lockt er seine Leser in Kvothes Welt. Mit einer Liebe fürs Detail erschafft er eine fantastische Geschichte, die nicht nur von ihren intelligenten und stichhaltigen Beschreibungen, sondern auch von großem Amüsement lebt.
