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.
Back once again with the sci-fi and general calamity. Includes The End is Always Near, Eat the Apple, A Memory Called Empire, Gideon the Ninth, Infinite Detail, Permafrost, Fallen, and The October Man.
Is there reason to upgrade from a 3 to a 5?
After all these years, Nic still can’t understand the American attitude to healthcare.
A sci-fi and fantasy heavy installment that includes The Valedictorian of Being Dead, The Mastermind, Broadsword Calling Danny Boy, Tiamat’s Wrath, The Raven Tower, The Liberation, The Light Brigade and Cryptonomicon.
