Still a good book and looking forward to the third.
Finished it last night. I thought the final 200 pages or so weren't quite up to snuff. The detail and pathos that oozed from the first 900 pages sorta dried up. Seems like something wasn't right. Either Rothfuss ran out of time and had to slap together the ending to get to his planned "location" in the narrative, or they decided the book was simply too long and did all their cutting from the ending, or some such. Still, as second books go, this one was a champion. Very excited for part 3.

So that puts me back into my journey thru Amber. I'll be picking up with book 4.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
