You know when grown-ups tell you everything's going to be fine, and you think they're probably lying to make you feel better?
Yes.
Everything's going to be fine.

The Name Of The Wind

By Patrick Rothfuss

The words are pretty, but I have no interest in the main character whatsoever, and 70-odd pages in there are no other characters, only cardboard cutouts.

Taking the broken hero and winding him up and setting him on his way again, Curse of Chalion-style, could have worked well.  But a two-thousand-page flashback?  No.  Just no.

Zero silences out of four.
