Anyone else out there reading the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss? Just finished The Name of the Wind and am halfway through A Wise Man's Fears.

I take it they are good? Genre sword & horse stuff?
 
I think they are pretty good, and while it's a fantasy series I'm not sure exactly what genre to put it in. Maybe 'tall tales' meets 'rashemon'? It's a story within a story, with a narrator too clever to trust and too charming to ignore. It's not epic, more like a light fable with hints of a dark twist scattered about. My kind of story, at any rate.
 
Yes, I read Name of the Wind when it 1st came out (and told you to read it :-P) and read Wise Man's Fear a few months ago. They're great.
