It took me three attempts to read this book, and I finally finished it. I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy it because I did! However, it's quite an endeavor. It's very long and complicated. It felt a little slow at the beginning but once the plot was set the book transformed into something very intriguing. I respect Rothfuss' attention to detail and accuracy. He was very careful with his characters and they developed nicely. I will continue this series, but I need a little break!
