Ara vol revelar tota la veritat sobre ell mateix. I haurà de començar pel principi: la infantesa en una companyia dartistes itinerants, els anys malvivint com a lladregot als carrers duna ciutat gran i larribada a una universitat on espera trobar les respostes que ha estat buscant. Atípica, profunda i sincera, El nom del vent és una novel·la daventures, dhistòries dins daltres històries, de misteri, damistat, damor, de màgia i de superació, escrita amb mà de poeta i que captiva -per la seva originalitat i la mestria amb què està narrada- a tots els que la llegeixen. www.lahistoriadekvothe.com

El nombre del viento

by Patrick Rothfuss

"Viajé, amé, perdí, confié y me traicionaron." En una posada en tierra de nadie, un hombre se dispone a relatar, por primera vez, la auténtica historia de su vida. Una historia que únicamente él conoce y que ha quedado diluida tras los rumores, las conjeturas y los cuentos de taberna que le han convertido en un personaje legendario a quien todos daban ya por muerto: Kvothe... músico, mendigo, ladrón, estudiante, mago, héroe y asesino. Ahora revelará la verdad sobre sí mismo. Y para ello debe empezar por el principio: su infancia en una troupe de artistas itinerantes, los años malviviendo como un ladronzuelo en las calles de una gran ciudad, y su llegada a una universidad donde esperaba encontrar todas las respuestas que había estado buscando. Atípica, profunda y sincera, El nombre del viento es una novela de aventuras, de historias dentro de otras historias, de misterio, de amistad, de amor, de magia y de superación, escrita con la mano de un poeta y que ha deslumbrado -por su originalidad y la maestría con que está narrada- a todos los que la han leído.
