I read The Name of the Wind way back in 2010, back then I didn’t have a blog and the initial review I did on Goodreads was less of a review and more of a monologue . So with a blog now in place and less reading being done by me lately there’s no better time than this to review this epic fantasy masterpiece .
“You have to be a bit of a liar to tell a story the right way.”

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Choice this week:
This is the first time I am doing a Teaser Tuesday after being inspired for the idea from The Tattooed book Geek aka Drew. So if I am doing anything wrong do point that out please .
My Teaser originates from the Fantasy Genius Steven Erikson’s Malazan Classic – Memories of Ice
My Selected Teaser :
WhiskeyJack saw Caladan Bood, Hammer hanging down from his hands, motionless…and standing before the warlord,, on an island of his own , was Kruppe . Brushing dust from his clothes. The crack that had been born where the hammer had struck the earth , parted neatly around the short, Fat Daru, joining again just behind him.
Whiskeyjack struggled to hold back a laugh , knowing how desperate, how jarring it would sound . So we, have seen Brood’s fury. And Kruppe , That preposterous little man,, has stood it down, if Proof was ever needed that the Daru was not as he appeared to be .. He Then frowned . A Demonstration indeed – directed towards whom, I wonder?
