The Wise Man's Fear: The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day Two (Kingkiller Chronicles)

The Wise Man's Fear: The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day Two (Kingkiller Chronicles) - Patrick Rothfuss The second book in the Kingkiller Chronicle was not quite as good as the first, but still an enjoyable roller-coaster ride. Rothfuss's style is easy to get caught up in, both the third-person framing story and the first-person account of Kvothe as possibly unreliable narrator.

A couple of spoiler-y thoughts on finishing the book:


For me, the book dragged a bit in the middle, mostly in the sections after Kvothe goes traveling. The part hunting the bandits was a bit dull; the section with Fellurian felt longer than it needed to be.

I'm pretty sure Kvothe's mother will turn out to be the "lost" Lackless sister who ran off with an Edema Ruh lover.

I'm beginning to think Denna the walking plot device might be Fae or part-Fae.

I liked the symmetry of the chapter names at the beginning and end of the book.
Beginning: A Silence of Three Parts, Apple and Elderberry, Holly, Luck
End: Locks, Folly, Elderberry, A Silence in Three Parts

It might go further than that but those were the ones I noticed.
