Looking forward to having more to read!

Most will know that I love reading, and I just had to mention it when I read Patrick Rothfuss’ blog update on his second book.

The Name of the Wind is one of my favorite fantasy books, and I’ve been eagerly awaiting news of when the second part of the trilogy will come out.  Though there’s no publishing date yet, it sounds like it’s finally nearing completion!  That was exciting enough, but he also mentions that:

The Wise Man’s Fear is going to be bigger than The Name of the Wind by at least 100,000 words or so.

That is just incredible.  The Name of the Wind took me a long time to go through, mostly because I enjoyed it so much that I deliberately tried to hold back and savor it rather than my customary speed-reading. That book was over 600 pages long, and if 50,000 words equals roughly 150-200 pages, then that’s another 300-400 more pages in the second book!

The second book has been a long time in the making, but if the quality of the book is on par with The Name of the Wind, and is LONGER to boot, then I can be patient. 🙂

    What the hell? Never heard of this Patrick Rotface till today, and now I’ve seen him mentioned twice…

    Maybe I should give it a shot.

    Ha! I’ve just gone through my daily comics – let me guess, the other place you’ve seen him mentioned is on PA?
    I have a (heavy) hard copy of The Name of the Wind that I can lend you next time we meet up.
