'I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin. The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title.

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. La novela que ha consagrado a Patrick Rothfuss como fenómeno editorial de los últimos años. 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 va a revelar 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 lascalles de una gran ciudad y su llegada a una universidad donde esperaba encontrar todas las respuestas que había estado buscando. «Viajé, amé, perdí, confié y me traicionaron.» «He robado princesas a reyes agónicos. Incendié la ciudad de Trebon. He pasado la noche con Felurian y he despertado vivo y cuerdo. Me expulsaron de la Universidad a una edad a la que a la mayoría todavía no los dejan entrar. He recorrido de noche caminos de los que otros no se atreven a hablar ni siquiera de día. He hablado con dioses, he amado a mujeres y he escrito canciones que hacen llorar a los bardos. »Me llamo Kvothe. Quizá hayas oído hablar de mí.» La crítica ha dicho... «Una estupenda y fuera de lo común novela de aventuras fantásticas.» Justo Navarro, El País «Sin duda El nombre del viento se convertiráen un clásico.» The Times «Un libro para quien conoce el mágico poder de las palabras.» Ricard Ruiz Garzón, El Periódico de Catalunya «Una aventura insólita y preciosa. Puntuación: Sobresaliente.» Manu González, Qué Leer «No sucede a menudo, pero El nombre del viento de Patrick Rothfuss sí es tan bueno como dicen las reseñas.» Locus «Llena de música, magia, amor y pérdida, el absorbente y vivo debut de Patrick Rothfuss nos ha deslumbrado.» Amazon.com «A veces, con suerte y unas cuantas recomendaciones de buenos amigos, se vuelve a descubrir otro paraíso en el que quedarse, un par de semanas, unos cuantos días. Y eso es justo lo que me ha pasado con El nombre del viento.» Toni Rodero, La Voz de Avilés

Katy Thatcher was the bright and curious daughter of the town doctor. She was fascinated by her father’s work, and even as a child she knew that she too wanted to be a doctor. She wanted to know about people. Perhaps it was this, her insatiable curiosity, or simply the charm of Jacob’s gentle intimacy with animals large and small, that fueled their friendship. Although Jacob never spoke to her or even looked at her directly, Katy grew to understand him from the moments they spent together quietly singing to the horses. She knew there was meaning in the sounds he made and purpose behind his movements. So when events took an unexpected and tragic turn, it was Katy alone who could unravel the mystery of what had occurred, and why. A two-time recipient of the prestigious Newbery Medal, acclaimed author Lois Lowry presents a sensitive and moving story of a wide-eyed young girl growing up at the beginning of the twentieth century and the influence of the farm community around her. Through Katy’s eyes, readers can see the human face so often hidden under modern psychological terminology and experience for themselves the haunting impact of her friendship with the silent boy.
