I just wanted to recommend the The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I picked it up on a whim last year and thought it was pretty awesome. The second book of the planned trilogy comes out in a couple weeks.

Anyone else read this?

No.

Also, whenever I hear the wind blow I will think Lowenstein, Lowenstein, Lowenstein!

I just finished this recently. Overall I enjoyed it. I thought it might offer a bit more closure near the end, even though I know it's only the first book in a series. I expected to have a few more answers, and we really got nothing. I'll definitely pick up the second book Wise Man's Fear when it comes out on paperback.

I read The Name of the Wind, as well. I'm just wrapping up A Wise Man's Fear, too. I'd also highly recommend these books; they're probably the greatest literature I've ever read.

@ Ice2SeeYou: That's probably because the authour originally wrote the trilogy as one long story, and when he finally finished it, it was something like 1300 pages long -- too big for one book. He split it up into thirds, and you're right, I don't think it wraps things up very well in between the breaks in volumes. 4 years is a long time to put down a book for and then pick it back up and continue reading again! If I hadn't read A Wise Man's Fear immediately after The Name of the Wind, there'd probably be a lot of details that would have slipped out of my memory, as well.
