Scrolling through my Audible library for something new to listen to and ended up starting Name of the Wind again. 

Why do I do this to myself? >.>

It's ok Glockta, keep climbing those stairs.  I'm sure this time something different will be at the top.

It is, Nick Podehl does a fantastic job with it. But yet again I will get through it and WMF and then be sad because Doors of Stone is nowhere in sight and I want more dammit :P

Pay attention to the Tarbean section and let us know if Kvothe loses his name/sanity during this time and then is snapped back into reality from having his Name spoken to him by Skarpi. That was an observation which I haven't been back to check on my own, but maybe is worth your attention as you revisit the story.

I still don't think this series will translate well to screen.

They will have to cut a lot out of WMF. But then again, they could just exploit the unwritten pirate adventure etc., and make the Adem less weeaboo-y.

They should just sell the rights to the Felurian parts to one of the big pornography producers and be done with it.

Meanwhile, three days later...

The idea of Kvothe fucking a King, rather than killing a King, just inspired me to check to see if anyone had ever written Kvothe/Ambrose slashfic.

Yes, they have.

Is a self-insert fanfic where a gorgeous Mary Sue hooks up with Kvothe actually a post-modern commentary on the text? You know, seeing as Kvothe himself is one.

Summary of the last eleven threads:

Wow, what a great time we all had reading this series so far! Lots of awesome unresolved things happened for two books! Holy shit, these books have so much going on, and are fantastic page-turners. Let's endlessly speculate on all these wonderful hints and foreshadowing, and discuss this unreliable narrator, and generally have a great time. Wait, what? He said it was done? Just kidding. He might have been lying. We can't be sure. His blogs are fun, but he seems to have lost any interest in the finale of this trilogy. Wait, is this very gifted author perhaps a total  fucking dicknose? Wow, what a disappointment. Screw it, we'll read other authors who aren't assholes.  In the meantime, let's all collectively bitch about him until 2019 or whenever the fuck he finally releases Doors of Stone, at which time we will all most likely eat it up and love him again. All hail Pat and his sweet beard.
