Man, I am bummed. Several of my friends (AND Patrick Rothfuss for that matter) rated and recommended this book very highly. I was excited to start it. As I was reading I kept thinking "seriously, this has to get better..." Only I read a little over half and it never did, so I had to give up. I skipped to the end and didn't even care about that either! This book and I just didn't click. Sad.
