When Michael McKey listens to the last minute ramblings of a dying man he meets in central park, he finds himself wracked with guilt for the way he has been living. Although he has never committed a felony or hurt anyone (majorly, at least), he has done nothing to better anyone, not even himself. When he runs away from home, Michael meets seven very different people who bring to light not only a truth about himself, but one about humanity as well.

When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.
— Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
