El nombre del viento : Crónica del asesino de reyes 1 by Patrick Rothfuss( )

1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atípica, profunda y sincera, El nombre del viento es una novela de aventuras, de historias dentro de otras historias, de misterio, de amistad, de amor, de magia y de superación. La novela que ha consagrado a Patrick Rothfuss como fenómeno editorial de los últimos años. En una posada en tierra de nadie, un hombre se dispone a relatar, por primera vez, la auténtica historia de su vida. Una historia que únicamente él conoce y que ha quedado diluida tras los rumores, las conjeturas y los cuentos de taberna que le han convertido en un personaje legendario a quien todos daban ya por muerto: Kvothe... músico, mendigo, ladrón, estudiante, mago, héroe y asesino. Ahora va a revelar la verdad sobre sí mismo. Y para ello debe empezar por el principio: su infancia en una troupe de artistas itinerantes, los años malviviendo como un ladronzuelo en las calles de una gran ciudad y su llegada a una universidad donde esperaba encontrar todas las respuestas que había estado buscando. He robado princesas a reyes agónicos. Incendié la ciudad de Trebon. He pasado la noche con Felurian y he despertado vivo y cuerdo. Me expulsaron de la Universidad a una edad a la que a la mayoría todavía no los dejan entrar. He recorrido de noche caminos de los que otros no se atreven a hablar ni siquiera de día. He hablado con dioses, he amado a mujeres y he escrito canciones que hacen llorar a los bardos. Me llamo Kvothe. Quizá hayas oído hablar de mí. La crítica ha dicho... Una estupenda y fuera de lo común novela de aventuras fantásticas. Justo Navarro, El País Sin duda El nombre del viento se convertirá en un clásico. The Times Un libro para quien conoce el mágico poder de las palabras. Ricard Ruiz Garzón, El Periódico de Catalunya Una aventura insólita y preciosa. Puntuación: Sobresaliente. Manu González, Qué Leer No sucede a menudo, pero El nombre del viento de Patrick Rothfuss sí es tan bueno como dicen las reseñas. Locus Llena de música, magia, amor y pérdida, el absorbente y vivo debut de Patrick Rothfuss nos ha deslumbrado. Amazon.com A veces, con suerte y unas cuantas recomendaciones de buenos amigos, se vuelve a descubrir otro paraíso en el que quedarse, un par de semanas, unos cuantos días. Y eso es justo lo que me ha pasado con El nombre del viento. Toni Rodero, La Voz de Avilés
El temor de un hombre sabio by Patrick Rothfuss( )

1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Llega El temor de un hombre sabio, la esperada continuación de la historia de Kvothe y El nombre del viento. Todo hombre sabio teme tres cosas: la tormenta en el mar, la noche sin luna y la ira de un hombre amable. El hombre había desaparecido. El mito no. Músico, mendigo, ladrón, estudiante, mago, trotamundos, héroe y asesino, Kvothe había borrado su rastro. Y ni siquiera ahora que le han encontrado, ni siquiera ni siquiera ahora que le han encontrado, ni siquiera ahora que las tinieblas invaden los rincones del mundo, está dispuesto a regresar. Pero su historia prosigue, la aventura continúa, y Kvothe seguirá contándola para revelar la verdad tras la leyenda. Me llamo Kvothe. Quizá hayas oído hablar de mí... La crítica ha dicho... La nueva promesa de la literatura fantástica. Qué leer El Tolkien estadounidense. Juan Gómez-Jurado, ABC
