Started re-reading because of your review Dark Knight Send a noteboard - 30/07/2012 08:22:54 PM
The entire first half of the book is pure fluff! Looking at it now, it doesn't seem to make any sense. No big plot developments at all. Kvothe just plots to steal back Denna's ring from Ambrose. That's it. 300+ pages of this. And then he skips over his legendary trial (for reasons to be revealed probably) and his voyage to Vintas (fluff, but probably more entertaining than the first half).

I don't get it...
