I'm ready for the next one... Is it here yet?

I'll hear no negatives about WoK. Only 5 more months? I just re-read the series last year but I'll probably need a refresher. Those books are enormous.

Did you read Edgedancer? I thought that was pretty good and it gets you some updates on a few of the characters...

I was wondering if this was going to dial back at all...apparently not. He's just cursed with the gift of genius.

It gets worse the more you think about it. The Kingkiller books are a long lament over Kvothe's lost glory, both in the telling of a flashback and as the flashback progresses. It's like Pat doesn't realize he's reflecting on the combination of aging and genius being the cause of unfulfilled potential.

Don't get me wrong though, I really like the books. Just wish the next one would come along already.

K I finished Wise Man's Fear. Did I just "Winds of Winter" myself here with my wait for the 3rd book?

Also, how the fuck can this possibly wrap up in 3 books? That felt like book 2 of 5, at best.
