“The Wise Man’s Fear” Ch 47-52: Trials, Tales, and Travels

Ep 87 of CasterQuest: “The Wise Man’s Fear” Book Club recaps chapters 47-52.

In this episode, Kvothe teaches Chronicler that having stories told about you isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. Kvothe treats Elxa Dal to an expensive lunch, and the Master Sympathist repays him with a story and some advice that Kvothe doesn’t really want to follow… that is until his friends echo the sentiment- it’s time to take a break from the University until the heat dies down.

Count Threpe offers Kvothe an exciting new opportunity to go intern with the Maer Alveron in Vintas, and Kvothe packs up his things, says his goodbyes to friends and teachers, and embarks on the next stage of his journey.

We talk KKC News, odd laws, fancy cheese plates, and much more!

The next book club will cover chapters 53-60.
