FORMATIVE INSPIRATION (book/movie/song, etc)

The Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss

What about the series struck you?

The intricate storytelling, complex world building, and character development.

How has it informed your development as a person/artist/scholar/etc?

It has encouraged my imagination as an artist to encompass not only the real but also the seemingly intangible.

Have you incorporated any of its lessons into your life that you use, even now?

I never underestimate the value of friends and the power of story within community.

Would you recommend it to others? Why or why not?

Yes! Book three isn’t out yet, so if you’re up for the journey of book one and two and have the patience to wait for book three I highly recommend it.
