      God, the non-male-pregnancy part. Super jarring, super wtf. Apparently there were some Papa New Guinea tribes who believed this, but it still felt really...wrong and out of place in the book. No idea why it's in there; my guess is he wrote that part a long time ago after some class on 'Tribal Beliefs', thinking it was a neat idea and just got so used to it being in there he didn't want to cut i

      Heh, and just to further spam your wall, check this review of 'The White-Luck Warrior'. Spoiler free, and really has me foaming at the bit to read it...which sucks since I'm bogged down with senior thesis work right now, but I'll find a way to make time for Bakker. http://thewertzone.blogspot.com/2011/04/white-luck-warrior-by-r-scott-bakker.html

      by the third book; I guess my final judgment of The Wise Man's Fear will rest on how well the third book ties it all together.

      That said, I enjoyed it completely, and it had some incredible moments (Naming Felurian; Kvothe taking 'one perfect' step in the epilogue). As Rothfuss pointed out, this is the story of a guy's life: if the narrative didn't seem a bit meandering, it wouldn't ring very true. Being the meticulous writer he is, I'm thinking that a lot of the stuff that seemed bloated or unneccesary will be vindicated

      I have a lot of back-and-forth feelings on Wise Man's Fear. While I was reading it, it felt like Rothfuss was letting his narrative get away from him--everything seemed kind of long, drawn out, maybe even slightly unneccesary. The writing was as great as ever but...especially during the bandit hunt, the book lagged for me. Basically, it felt a bit structurally flawed.

      Wise Man's Fear new Bakker are literally weeks away. You're the guy who'd read both series right?

      Back to VGchartz for the first time in forever. Kind of miss it, honestly. Wonder how much of the "old guard" is still kicking around.

      Your avatar and mine kind of look like they're having a staring contest.

      Have you ever listened to LCD Soundsystem? The main guy behind the project/band, James Murphy is, in my opinion, probably the closest we have to a musical genius in contemporary music. He's also a big, big fan of David Bowie, David Byrne, and especially Brian Eno, and all those influences are definitely noticeable in his music. If you haven't, you should definitely nab an LCD album or two..

      And yeah. I eagerly await the day Bakker brings Cnaiur back into the story.

      You've probably read either or both, but anything by Scott Lynch or Joe Abercrombie is very good. Richard K Morgan has a few really good sci-fi novels and just put out his first fantasy novel, "The Steel Remains", which is really good (but very dark). And if you haven't read Bakker's non-Prince of Nothing book, Neuropath, it's actually a really good read.

      Eh, he can definitely veer towards pretentious and heavy-handed stuff in his interviews. In general his blog/articles/etc tend to be a lot better thought out and more broadly reflective of different viewpoints.

      If you gave your avatar facial hair it would look just like Toki from Metalocalypse.
