My boyfriend lent me his favourite book a couple of months ago, and then when I liked it, bought me the second in the series for my birthday. They were great reads! An intriguing storyline, interesting characters, and a backwards timeline that makes you want to keep reading to figure out how the main character ended up where he is.
And on top of a great story, it’s been fun to discuss the novels, while reading, with my boyfriend.
However, I have a frustration to share.
Are you ready?
Okay, I’ll tell you.
The author makes me angry!!!!
Having to wait for the next instalment is incredibly difficult.
I want to know what happened to make Kvothe into the person he is as he tells his story. But – the author, Patrick Rothfuss, hasn’t finished the story yet. The third novel of the Kingkiller Chronicles has yet to be released. Some say it hasn’t even been written yet.
Please Pat, Mr. Rothfuss, please complete the third instalment soon. I’m begging you. I know good, quality storytelling can’t be rushed… so I’m not sure why I’m trying to rush you. My apologies.
But there is so much detail and so many characters that waiting between reading , I fear, will make it difficult to understand the third novel. Even reading them back to back was difficult to remember all the intricacies of some of the anecdotes and characters.
If you like medieval or fantasy literature with humour, romance, daring feats, magic, legend and such, you should read these books. I thoroughly enjoyed them and am waiting eagerly for the next instalment.
Until then, my boyfriend and I will have to continue discussing our theories…
