Weekly Geeks 2011.15: Ask Me Questions!

This week over at the Geeks we are doing another Dewey Flashback! I love those! This one is to ask for questions on a book that you plan to review in the coming days. And then to incorporate the answers to those questions into the review. Get it?

So the book that I'm THIS CLOSE to finishing, and have totally loved and have been completely immersed in this past weekend is The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

Now... ask me questions! Please!? Post them in the comments.

Then hopefully by the end of this week I'll get the answers and review posted.

Thanks for playing!


  1. Oh yay! I am so glad that you are loving and immersed in this book. I thought that you would.

    A question. Hmmm...

    Kvothe has been known to lie which has made it difficult for some readers to believe or trust his story. Has this been difficult for you? Do you have to have complete trust in your protagonist in order to enjoy the story and their perspective?

    Another question: How do you rank Patrick Rothfuss as compared to your favorite authors? Beyond that question; how do you feel about Rothfuss's wordsmith ability?

    I have asked several questions; answer one, answer them all, answer none because ultimately, all I really want to know...
    How much did you love this story? blown away? amazing author? Fantastic storyline? Kvothe rank up there as one amazing character? Do you not think Rothfuss is an incredible author; world-builder/wordsmith? Yes...all those questions are really one...are you gushing over this story?

    I am enthusiastic, am I not? :D

    Have fun with writing your review, and I hope you get several others asking you questions. I look forward to reading your thoughts.

  2. I have never read Rothfuss...or heard of him, honestly, so my questions may be unexciting!

    1. Explain the book to me! As well as your motivation to pick it up and read it please!

    2. Also, I doubt the wind is actually given a name in this book...but I have to ask, what is the name of the wind??

  3. What book would you compare this too? What did it remind you of? I ask because I have it on my TBR list but I'm wondering what it's like. Maybe I shouldn't know! Sorry, I'm all over the place.

    Are there any random poems or songs in this book? That ones weird too and you don't have to answer it. I've just noticed that sometimes in a certain type of fantasy there are theses random poems or songs and I tend to get annoyed.

  4. Livres gratuits, Ebook Gratuit, Livres numériques, téléchargement immédiat et gratuit, livre électronique gratuit au format PDF. Guides Pratiques, Développement personnel, amour, ebusiness...

  5. a lot of good questions, some I'd had in mind...

    did you feel like there was any resolution to even a small story line? or is that important to you at all in the first book of any series?

    How successful did you find the pacing? how did Rothfuss compel you to keep reading?

  6. about:

    What characters did you relate to and why?
    Did anything they do/experience make you think of something you did/experienced?
    I'm not sure I'm asking these well, but I want to know what on a personal level do you like about this book - how do you relate to it?

  7. Awesome questions everyone! I can't wait to get to them all!
