The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss

This is the first book from Patrick Rothfuss and I am very impressed.  He tells a great story that has action, magic, and humor.  To me those are three things that make a great story.  The magic system is easy to understand and doesn't go overboard with it's complexity (I'm looking at you Brandon Sanderson).  If I were to suggest a book to someone who has a passing interest in fantasy, it would be this one.
