Should we have a seperate page for the characters? The article may also be perhaps improved by adding a section about its reviews. Apoorv020 (talk) 05:01, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Possible error in the opening, where it says his name is pronounced "Quothe." I seem to recall the phrase being "Similar to Quothe", which would not be the same. If someone could look this up and confirm/disprove this notion, that'd be great. Aeti (talk) 19:41, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Organisations, Places and Landmarks[edit]

This page definitely needs more information about the world described in the book. Apoorv020 (talk) 10:49, 20 September 2009 (UTC)

Characters from the second novel[edit]

Characters from the second novel have to be added, as do minor characters like Fela etc. Apoorv020 (talk) 09:32, 5 March 2011 (UTC)


We need to construct a section regarding the mythos and history of the word as revealed in the books as a handy reference, especially for those who forget some points from the first book. This should include the stories regarding Lanre, Taborlin the Great, and the ancient Lackless family (which is clearly going to be a very important thread in this story). For example following a summary of Skarpi's story should be the following",

In "The Song of Seven Sorrows," composed by Denna with the assistance of her mysterious patron, Lenre is portrayed "in tragic tones" as a fallen hero "wrongly used," cursed by Selitos.

I would add this, but I don't recall the story as told by Skarpi. I plan to start accumulating notes here in the Talk section that can then be pulled together for the page.--GodBlessYou2 (talk) 16:07, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

While these additions are very detailed, it's perhaps a bit much for the general Wikipedia entry. The article could use some parring down in the lore and character entries. Perhaps we should not include so many blatent spoilers, as well? People who need a refresher on the book should reread, or reference a Kingkiller-specific wiki, not a general Wikipedia article. --Lomky 18:20, 13 April 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lomky (talkcontribs)

Establish real world notability[edit]

The book summaries are way out of proportion to the degree of real world notability this author, or his books, or the characters from his books, have been shown to have attained. Please, fans, remember this is an encyclopedia, not a fansite. find references for critical commentary and discussion of the books from OUTSIDE the fan base, before adding any more in universe details. We dont have a single positive comment from any one in any of his articles, only a listing of middle rank awards. This detail is appropriate for major characters and themes in shakespeare or hemingway. he may, in fact, be a better writer, thats not the point. show your work, as they say in school.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:21, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Book 2 debuted at the top of the NYT Bestseller list. Has Wikipedia seriously gotten to the point that this doesn't sufficiently establish notability? (talk) 05:47, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
