    This year I've probably relistened to Name of The Wind and Wise Man's Fear 3 times already. They might be my favorite books.

    Really good books. The long wait for the next one isn't so good, though. Soul-sucking.

    Hah, it is indeed. I listen to all podcasts and YouTube videos where Rothfuss is being interviewed for hints or clues. He's super busy with 3 things:
    1. The third book.
    2. Spending more time with family and getting healthy.
    3. Working with Hollywood on movies, TV shows and games (all about the franchise).

    So he's spread pretty thin I think.

    I do wish he would speed up the time he spends on the third book - the wait is horrendous:p But I guess that is also part of the reason why the books are so amazingly well written.

    -------------------

    I have been reading/listening to a lot of books late, of various genres. But a series I would recommend that I believe fits well with the Hive crowd (and theme :grin:) is the BobiVerse series.

    I actually came across that series a few weeks ago and was like "WTF?". Is it a good story? I mean for someone who enjoys Rothfuss's deep characters and their development.

    Well, it is a very different type of story (Sci-fi among other things) - but with a lot of character development (to some extent character development is the main gist of the story) and by extension characters (will make sense when you read it). I "read" it as an audio book), as I originally began after supporting a charity and receiving a selection of books in it, where the first book in the series was part of it.

    I do have a fairly varied taste, but I would say one can enjoy it. Should you be interested, the first book I got was DRM free, so I can give it to you.
