“The Wise Man’s Fear” Ch 88: The Moistening

In Episode 103 of CasterQuest Hosts Mandy and Erik discuss Chapter 88 “Listening”- of “The Wise Man’s Fear” the second novel in the best selling fantasy series “The Kingkiller Chronicle” by Patrick Rothfuss.

In this episode we travel with Jax as he searches for the moon and evolves from an ‘apathetic kid with a crush’ to a ‘psychopathic man with an obsessive need for lunar abduction’.

Discussion topics include:

*Will astronauts ever find moisture on the moon? The answer may surprise you.
*The Tinker and the Hermit- complicit accomplices to the heist of the century?
*Arming people with just enough information to be dangerous.
*The differences between ‘loving’ someone from afar vs intimately.
*How Jax BLEW IT
*Jax & Moon / Kvothe & Denna: A relationship comparison
*What does ‘scoop up some moon rocks’ mean, exactly?
*Does Mandy take a 10 minute detour to talk about ‘Hamilton’ creator Lin Manuel Miranda? The answer may not surprise you.

…and much more.

The next Kingkiller Chronicle Book Club will cover Chapter 89 “Losing the Light”.
