Told in Kvothe's own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen. The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet's hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard. From Goodreads.
I enjoyed this. It starts with us meeting Kvothe as an innkeeper and it hints at him having done great things. The way it is told I am not sure whether it is good or evil great things. Then Kvothe starts telling his story and in this book 1, it is his childhood and life as a young adult he tells about. I have already ordered the next book from the library as I would really like to continue reading this series.
