Not as good as the first one. Meandered more and involves too much Mary Sue-ing.

La narración sigue siendo impecable, pero ahí donde brillaba El Nombre del Viento, falla su segunda parte: las historias paralelas son demasiado extensas, y da la impresión de que estamos leyendo otro libro completamente distinto.

This book is Fantasy done right. The storytelling ability of Patrick Rothfuss is nothing short of awesome! The only thing that disappoints me about this series is that there is currently only two books and I blew through both of them and now I am left to wait.

Disgustingly entertaining. A dual threat of life lessons and hypnotic entertainment.
