Just recently finished "The Name of the Wind" and "The Wise Man's Fear", based on a recommendation from a friend. Great read! The second was even better than the first.
The series is not without its issues. I'm not convinced about the whole Kvothe/Denna relationship. It seems like contrived tragedy. The series hasn't finished, and already I know where that's heading. It's also hard to write about a young genius without the inherent arrogance upsetting your empathy for the character.
Otherwise, the world he has created is fascinating. The protagonist gets himself into such situations, you beg to read another few more pages, or one more chapter, just to find out what happens. The resolution can surprise. Still lots more questions to be answered, so looking forward to the next book.
