“The Wise Man’s Fear” Ch 28-32: Pears, Poetry, and Poor Planning

Episode 77 of CasterQuest recaps Chapters 28-32 in our ongoing “The Wise Man’s Fear” book club, from Patrick Rothfuss’ best-selling fantasy series, “The Kingkiller Chronicle”.

In this episode, Kvothe and friends continue to comb the Archives in the search of the gram schema, and finally luck out… except it’s written in Eld Vintic… maybe you’ve heard of it? Thankfully, Sim comes to the rescue with a helpful translation, an improv poetry slam, and an accidental seduction.

AHH M’LUTE! Kvothe has a shock when returning to Ankers’ to find his beloved instrument has gone missing!

Elodin has a novel metaphor to help Kvothe get a grip on how his Naming class works, Kvothe gets a lesson in love and completely ignores it, and receives an unexpected gift… plus more!

Also, Pears are terrible.
