The quality of prose is above par, and it's not too dense or windy for a pretty casual reader to follow. The characters are pretty well drawn and the plot moves at a decent clip.
It IS a bit horny though. If I recall correctly, it's pretty fade-to-black about it, but Kvothe thinks about sex a lot, and has plenty of sexual interactions.
And I say that, even though it's one of my favorite modern fantasy pieces.
