What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Less talk about God.

What was most disappointing about K. S. Haigwood’s story?

The fact that she just assumes that Christianity is the only religion.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance could have been better with a bit of irony.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was the only book on my iPod that I hadn't listened to.

Any additional comments?

I think books which push religion should have a warning on them.

Part Two of The Name of The Wind (Unabridged).'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me'.

I loved the narration, although on occasion, when Rupert Degas recounted what the characters said, he didn't seem to give the utterance the same meaning as Patrick Rothfuss had intended, as described in the text.

The story is brilliant. It played out in my head like a film. Patrick Rothfuss has a masterful attention to detail.

My only bicker is that the book is split into two parts, as is the second book. This seems like a bit of a scam to me and if it weren't for the fact that I hate to change narrators in the middle of the story, I would look for the book using a different audio-book seller.

It has made me want to look in different places for subsequent books and if I find that the books I want are not split into two by other sellers, and that they are reasonably priced, I will probably cancel my subscription to Audible.
