Inhaltsangabe

I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the university at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.

My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me.

So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeeper - from his childhood in a troupe of travelling players, through his years spent as a near feral orphan in a crime riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic.

In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.

The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best.

Read by Rupert Degas.

ACHTUNG: Halbe Audioqualität zum vollen Preis...

Eine meiner Lieblingsserien, eine fantasievolle Welt mit liebevoll gezeichneten Charakteren. Besonders die Magie hat es mir angetan. Inhalt und Sprecher verdienen die vollen fünf Sterne.

Was mich dagegen sehr ärgert ist die halbierte Klangqualität die sehr an eine 70er Jahre Telefonverbindung erinnert!
Ein Blick in die technischen Daten offenbart:
Audio: aac, 22050 Hz, stereo, 62 kb/s - Normal wäre: 44100 Hz, stereo, 125 kb/s

Halbierter Frequenzbereich und halbierte Bitrate, was auch deutlich zu hören ist - und ja, ich habe beim Download "Beste Qualität" ausgewählt.

Für den vollen Preis finde ich das ziemlich unverschämt, daher nur einen Stern in der Gesamtbewertung.

Great story without a question, but ...

The speaker does a really bad job in characterizing the characters and exaggerates it with his interpretation he voices beyond the unrecognizability of the mood of the book. Hes having a great voice, but it often feels like he doesn't really know the book.

Großartig

The Name of the Wind ist eins der besten Fantasybücher der letzen 20 Jahre. Quasi ein Harry Potter für Erwachsene.
Das Hörbuch ist gut gelesen, allerdings brauchte ich eine gewisse Eingewöhnungszeit. Umgangssprachliche Passagen habe nicht immer verstehen können, zumal sie manchmal sehr schnell gesprochen wurden. Das ist z. B. beim Song of Ice and Fire deutlich besser.
Sehr angenehm ist, dass die Kapitel nicht sooo lang sind, was bei mir mit dem Einschlaftimer bis Kapitelende gut passte.
Genug geschrieben - Day 2 wartet.

Not as good, as I had hoped

Rupert Degas' outstanding and marvelous performance aside, I found the story lackluster and mediocre at best.

Rather boring

After raving reviews on some social media I was expecting a very special new fantasy world, but was sorely disappointed.
The world building wasn't anything that hasn't been done in various classics like LOTR etc.
The hero, although supposedly incredibly clever, was neither interesting nor likeable. Most relevant characters were male, and the female characters lacked definition.
The whole story went on and on without getting more exciting, and the intervowen love story didn't manage to make the whole thing more interesting. The main love interest was supposed to be mysterious and amazingly beautiful, but just managed to seem annoying.
The reader although excellent at accents, tended to be sloppy with his endings, which was almost unbearable.
All in all not a very enjoyable listening experience. I kept hoping it would be getting better, but gave up at the third part.

Best fantasy book of all times.

Unchallenged fantasy book. I love Rothfusses eye for the little details and absolute perfection. This has been my second read and the book still amazes me!

best book I ever read

and I did read a good number of books. I can't put my finger on what it is, but the text has a certain melody to it that makes the whole book feel like an epic, a bit like a ballad but less on the nose about it.

Additionally the story has a lot of little unseen secrets that you sometimes pick up and sometimes don't, that make rereading (or hearing this fourth time) worth it.

Live it.

Sometimes I can't understand Rupert Degas, but a native English soeaker should have no problem at all.
I never thought I would like first-person story telling, but this book nails it.

Wonderful story telling and great book!

Wonderful story telling, the narrator did a great job with the different voices. The story itself is gripping and I couldn't wait to start the 2nd book!
