rating: 5 of 5 stars
Patrick Rothfuss tells a masterful story in an intriguing fashion. By the lead character reminiscing & telling his life story to a chronicler, the reader can see not only a story unfolding in the past, but the scene set (in future books) for how his life unfolds in the present. The protagonist's developmental years are covered in this novel, and although 90% of it is spent on his adolescence & the impulsiveness that marks him, he never comes across as painfully egocentric or bratty.
