But the sex-fairy bit may just have bumped him up the list I don't mind a bit of silly in an otherwise serious book. I said:. Grunkins Couch Commander.

Joined Jan 18, Messages As with anything in literature, it's all about the execution. Despite some totally outlandish deeds by Kvothe and all at a young age , the series still has a high degree of verisimilitude because it's executed well and is internally consistent. Rothfuss makes it all pretty easy to swallow. And as Boneman says, it's in book two.
Chances are pretty high that if you get to that point you are invested enough so that it will be either swallowable or easily forgiven. Culhwch Lost Boy Staff member. I read the first book and never really had a desire to read the second - and especially not after I heard about the sex fairy part.
I find Rothfuss an overindulgent writer - there was a good book to be had in NotW good, not great but it needed either a lot more self-editing, or a much more serious edit once it arrived at the punblishers.

He's the ultimate Gary Sue and yet Rothfuss gets a pass. The quality of the writing helps, but it's still perplexing. My favourite novel has what would these days be called a Mary Sue as the main character. Her only real flaw is that she does not get on with her puritan family. I don't care I still love her.

Joined Jan 21, Messages After reading the "Felurian Bit" review I decided not to read either of the books. I know I should not be prejudiced by someone else's review even if it was a darn well-written one. It's just that the fantasy genre has more power without that kind of thing. Even Codex Alera was slightly tainted by it although not nearly to that degree.
You can hint at those things but to get explicit does not fit well and ruins the escape, at least for me. I get the impression that authors do it solely to avoid being classified as a children's book writer. I have to say that you don't need to do that to appeal to adults! Tolkien still rules with transcendental power. Heh, sometimes I feel like the only person do doesn't mind a bit of explicitness in books - its certainly nothing that would prevent me buying a book wouldn't convince me to buy it on that alone either - i'm not a Shades reader! If Brooks and Rothfuss ever write together, do you think we could get an evil sex chicken?

Sometimes the hens run faster. The nearest they get to "would you like a coffee" is to make lots of noises about "food here" - specific chicken call by the way, also used by mother hens to their chicks.
