Review: The Name of the Wind

Impressive first novel of a planned trilogy.

The Name of the Wind is the first part of a planned trilogy, and it is one impressive piece of old-school fantasy with huge and detailed world building, interesting characters and a massive story arc.

After reading it, I jumped on Amazon to order the second installment. Which is not out yet. Probably the best way to convey how much I enjoyed The Name of the Wind is that it ruined my day to find out I’m going to have to wait a long time for the second installment (not to mention the third).

If you like fantasy at all you will dig The Name of the Wind.

You have thoughts? I’m @niclindh on Twitter and I want to know what you think.
