I really want to get this out so it’s going up on an unusual day. The book and I need some space to cool off.
Title: The Name of the Wind
Series: The Kingkiller Chronicles; Book 1
Author: Patrick Rothfuss
ROTS Setting: UU, Medieval, Higher Magic, Dragons (sort of)
Synopsis: Told in Kvothe’s own voice, this is the tale of the magically gifted young man who grows to be the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen. The intimate narrative of his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a legendary school of magic, and his life as a fugitive after the murder of a king form a gripping coming-of-age story unrivaled in recent literature. A high-action story written with a poet’s hand, The Name of the Wind is a masterpiece that will transport readers into the body and mind of a wizard.
Recommendation: This book is In Dispute due to the contrasting public and personal opinion of the reviewer.

I’m almost finished reading through The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss when this happens! 568 and then BAM! 631. My first thought is that since it’s a used copy then some pages must have come out some how. A quick look at the binding shows absolutely zero indication that there had once been 30 additional sheets of paper there. It’s used and well worn but the binding is in perfect condition.
My second thought is that it must be a printing error. This is a USA first print of the trade paperback edition. But after numerous Google searches and scouring various blogs and websites I can’t find any indication that it’s a wide spread error.
Third, is there someway I can get these pages to read or am I going to have to hit up the library (just checked and there are 4-6 holds) or buy a brand new copy? I’m not adverse to the latter but for 60 pages that seems silly……then again, if I want to reread it I’ll need them again anyways.
The one and only high point is that this might be a “rare” or one of a kind copy of this book. In the mean time I sit in agony, the book unfinished, contemplating to what extent I would go to finish it.
