It is hinted throughout Kvothe's stay at the Ademre that the culture of Adem emphasizes femininity and that the children are cultivated at a young age to become 'war children' as they undergo an almost militaristic training provided by the Adem schools using their respective martial arts curriculum based on the Ketan and their own variations of the Lethani philosophy.

Within the first 100 pages and I'm already in love with the members of the gang already.
Seriously this book was so much fun to read. This book deserves all it's hype.

This book is around 700 pages with apt descriptions and precise detailing. I confess I got bogged down at the beginning and had to come back to this book several months later. In The Wise Man's Fear, Kvothe searches for answers, attempting to uncover the truth about the mysterious Amyr, the Chandrian, and the death of his parents. If you have suggestions for any of the chapter titles I've left blank, I'd love to hear them. At night, Bast breaks into Chronicler's room and reveals Chronicler's coming was part of his plan all along.
I mean, they were kind of annoying?? We follow Locke as he begins one of his most difficult tricks, all the while numerous other powers are at work. She later develops feelings for Simmon, and they enter into a relationship. I burned down the town of Trebon. It will be really hard for the rest of the series to top this one but I'm eager to find out, soon after posting this review. They thought he was cracking a joke.

It's fair to say it retains it's place as one of my all time favorite books. I burned down the town of Trebon. You better watch out, Mr Lynch, your glorious days as Ruthless Ruler of Blah Blah Blah Skim Skim Skim Land are over.
