The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicle, #2)The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An excellent follow-up to "Name of the Wind" and one that has filled me with the desire for more, more, more! Rothfuss is a skillful writer, he creates a colourful world filled with a diverse range of cultures and with a rather charasmatic hero. Kvothe makes a fine progtagonist - his sharp tongue and impulsive answers make for a lot of rather interesting, if not entire pleassant (for him) situations.

I can't wait to see what comes next, and am especially intrigued by Bast.

A tasty treat with a bit of an aftertaste

Recipe for LifeRecipe for Life by Nicky Pellegrino

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A fairly light and flavoursome read, peppered with delicious descriptions. The plot seems rather prolonged - from the cover it looks like it all occurs in one summer - when it really spans more than two decades. Still, it was compelling and appealing, even if it seemed to lack that extra spice.
