    Don't, it's unfinished and may never be. There is another book and then nothing. The first book is good at starting things and making you go wow, but the second book is disappointing and I know it's impossible to finish the story in just one book.

    Hey, @Lefungus , I'm halfway through the book and oh, God... Kvothe is cool, but sometimes he's way too cool, way too amazing, way too good, way to the focus of every situation, and goddamn conceited, which makes the reading quite obnoxious. I frequently roll my eyes.

    I see Bilbo as a book prototype of the Lord of the rings. There are many similitudes between both stories. And LoTR is very much an analogy of World War 2. Anyways LoTR is one of my fav book. Anedoctally I spent some time at Bournemouth where Tolkien lived during holiday. I even visited the hotel where he resided ! :yes:

    I am currently reading it. I like it for now, very original ideas (even if the characters are very classic).

    Nice, I won't ruin anything. The book ended faster than I thought it would. I will definitely need to pick up the sequel
