Staff Reviews


Good fantasy is tough to pull off, because it often feels like
everything has been done before, but Patrick Rothfuss has managed to do
just that with this innovative and highly entertaining series that makes
the genre feel fresh again. Sure, he has taken elements from Harry
Potter and Lord of the Rings, but he spins them into a fresh, inventive,
and propulsive fantasy set in a wholly unique world that is
delightfully free of orcs, elves, or other familiar archetypes.
Rothfuss’ strength lies in his world-building, but thankfully he never
allows himself to get bogged down with the details. Instead, he just
weaves them into the story, and allows the little tidbits about the
characters and the world they inhabit to unfold naturally. If you
love fantasy, then you owe it to yourself to check out The Kingkiller
Chronicle.
