    WHAT'S IN THE BOX?

    *Predictions*

    Kvothe locked a piece of his name away in the thrice locked box.

    Meluan Lackless is Kvothe’s aunt

    Bast may be the son of Kvothe and Felurian

    Simmon might be the Penitent King

    I’m guessing Kvothe killed Ambrose, likely in a very brutal way. Probably over Denna.

  • Just put it on my wish list for audible. Will grab the first book when my next free book rolls around.

  • Patrick Rothfuss is genuinely the best writer I have ever read. His style just breezes along effortlessly, I was around 150-200 pages into The Name of the Wind before I realized I was hooked, and it wasn't his story that did it, it was his style. I read an 1100 page book in about 4 days, that should say it all.

  • So is Bast good or evil?

  • BTW, Sac, what are your thoughts on the planned Kingkiller Chronicles TV series/movie? I'm really nervous about the TV series as it sounds like it's going to Fox.

    That's a good question. I don’t think he looks at good and evil in those terms. And I do think his biggest goal is to rouse Kvothe from his stagnation.

  • That seems fair. But given that he hired the guards to attack Kote, it's entirely possible he summoned the scrael there as well, for that same purpose.

  • I also have a breaking suspicion that Denna is Gray Dalcenti.

    Well, obviously, there's the big theory that 'Master Ash' is Cinder of the Chandrian.

    Also, an interesting bit of trivia: in early drafts, Auri and Denna were the same character, and I've always suspected there's more to Auri than she lets on.

    I think Auri is princess Auriel, but I don't think Master Ash is Cinder. I think Master Ash is Bredon. The guy that taught Kvothe to play Tak.

    Well the Cinder/Ash theory obviously comes from the names. When a fire burns down to cinders, it's ash.

    Yeah, but that one's a bit too on the nose. It doesn't seem like Rorhfuss' style.
