Yeah, I didn't like The Name of the Wind as much as most people...

If you (still) want to get the book you can do so here: http://bit.ly/rothfusswind

I hope that in this rant I got my main point across, that I just don't like Kvothe as a protagonist, and that the book lacks structure (specifically, which I don't mention) in the ending. There are a few things I didn't mention actually, including the writing of Denna, the nature of fantasy as a genre, and some of the characterisation. Those are all mentioned in my goodreads review!
