My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wise Man’s Fear was an excellent book. It was naturally a perfect continuation of The Name of the Wind, as it followed Kvothe chasing the wind. The scope of this story is so vast covering many different cultures and various characters, yet Rothfuss manages to keep it coherent and relevant. It seems that every detail is somehow related to the story as a whole.
Something that stood out to me that I also greatly appreciated was how the important details from the first book were neatly woven in without taking up much “space”; the opportunity to turn it into filler material was not taken advantage of, and I for one am very grateful.
I have a strong feeling that this will be in the leagues of one of the best fantasy series written!
