the wise man's fear

src.

i loved "the name of the wind", which i rated 5 out of 5 when i read it back in 2013. the second book in "the kingkiller chronicle" i also really liked. at the time of reading though, three years ago, i "only" gave it 4 out of 5. i hope it's soon time for the last book in the installment. i'm excited. however, when it will be released is still unclear.

to ease the wait i have just started "the slow regard of silent things". wonderful being taken back into rothfuss' universe.

below some old clippings, from my 2013 read, of the second book in the kingkiller chronicle.
