Rothfuss, Patrick -- The Name of the Wind

Darling breakout fantasy novel of the year. I got there late, and... this is a whole lot of fun. But you gotta admit: it's a fun, well-done, engaging, hell of a Gary Stu. Destiny, red hair, tragic adolescence, unprecedented magical power -- the lot. I'd have been hooked even without the buckets of unresolved hinted plot threads.
