    I never got around to reading these books until The Name of the Wind was published And when I first did, I was a little pissed First person point of view Magic based on thermodynamics Gritty, realistic world Arrogant wizard who doesn t know when to keep his mouth shut It struck rather close to home Some people say that the first few books of this series were kinda rough But I didn t notice anything particularly untoward about them In fact, I burned...
