Probably not going to get much love from English Literature majors looking for books that can be read on 7 levels of symbolism, but a completely enjoyable read from start to finish.
I'm gonna second this one wholeheartedly. "The Name of the Wind" was an excellent work of Fantasy literature. And I'm actually halfway through the second book in the series "The Wise Man's Fear" (The Kingkiller Chronicle: Day Two) - and it's still very good. It's basically just like the first book would've just went on and continued.


That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.
