    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    His lack of self awareness is painful.

    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    I think you're going to get a soft version of your second bullet. I believe one of the major themes of KKC is moral relativism, because it comes up over and over: The Amyr act for the greater good (who decides what the greater good is?) Lanre who was "considered wise and good, did all this" The Duke of Gebbia (sp?) killed thousands but saved thousands with his medical knowledge The Chandrian killed Kvothe's parents "because they had a reason" Totally cool for the Amyr to strangle a pregnant woman or burn down a church Kvothe and Denna having totally different views on who Lanre was (misunderstood hero or monster) etc I will be stunned stunned stunned if the "big reveal"/point on which book 3 turns isn't Kvothe having made a bad assumption about the nature of the Chandrian and/or their intentions.

    Please point out the attack.

    Kind of a shitty take on both his creativity and what he should do in general.

    I have never in my life seen someone fish for compliments harder. The guy must have crippling insecurity/anxiety. Goes a long way towards explaining the book three delay, IMO.

    Worth noting that it's unlikely to be a full draft manuscript, just based on how tall the stack is. For comparison's sake, here is a rothfuss blog with a picture of a book 2 manuscript.

    Yeah, nobody can source the "beta readers hated it" thing. But the existence of a manuscript that went to beta readers is legit. Rothfuss posted it on his google+ page. LINK (You have to scroll down to February 2013 because I'm to dumb to permalink to the exact right spot.)

    Depends on what kind of reader you are. Do you like looking for easter eggs, theory crafting, and trying to unravel mysteries? If so, these books are for you. As thistlepong put so well once: "These books reward careful reading" However, if you're not into rereads and are looking for something lighter, I'd wait until #3 comes out.

    Hey @baxus Do you have a copy of Name of the Wind in Serbian? There's a guy who's doing a comparison of the Lackless Rhyme (Seven things has Lady Lackless...) in various languages to tease out meaning and I thought I'd (really my wife, who is Serbian) contribute with some analysis of a language they haven't done. If you have it, could you post the rhyme? Thx

    I suspect it will once other opportunities start drying up. For now, he has too many fun non-anxiety inducing opportunities staring him in the face to even consider doing something that makes him miserable.

    Came here for posts freaking out about Rothfuss writing Rick & Morty comics instead of book 3. Leaving disappointed. C'mon internet, rage better.

    I'd say...both? There's definitely foreshadowing built in, but let's mine Rothfuss for easter eggs has become such a thing that people are undertaking breathtaking levels of mental gymnastics to convince themselves they discovered something.
