This episode recaps chapters 92 & 93 of “The Wise Man’s Fear”, the second novel in the best-selling Fantasy series in our ongoing “The Kingkiller Chronicle” book club by Patrick Rothfuss.
Kvothe and his crew have miraculously survived their encounter with the bandits- but extreme actions are bound to have consequences.
How will everyone treat Kvothe in the aftermath of the battle? We take some time to tend our wounds, bury the bodies, and wonder where the heck the bandit leader got off to.
Tempi wants to take music lessons, Dedan and Hespe may have finally made things facebook official, and Marten isn’t quite sure he wants to be around Kvothe anymore.
It’s time to gather some loot, reward ourselves for a job well done, and ponder whether this whole scene was scripted out to AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck”.
“Thunder, thunder, thunder, thunder
I was caught
In the middle of a railroad track
I looked round
And I knew there was no turning back
My mind raced
And I thought what could I do
And I knew
There was no help, no help from you
Sound of the drums
Beating in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
