The Slow Regard of Silent Things Summary


The Slow Regard of Silent Things: A Kingkiller Chronicle Novella by Patrick Rothfuss

The University, a renowned bastion of knowledge, attracts the brightest minds to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences like artificing and alchemy. Yet deep below its bustling halls lies a complex and cavernous maze of abandoned rooms and ancient passageways - and in the heart of it all lives Auri.

Formerly a student at the University, now Auri spends her days tending the world around her. She has learned that some mysteries are best left settled and safe. No longer fooled by the sharp rationality so treasured by the University, Auri sees beyond the surface of things, into subtle dangers and hidden names.

At once joyous and haunting, THE SLOW REGARD OF SILENT THINGS is a rich, atmospheric and lyrical tale, featuring one of the most beloved characters from Rothfuss' acclaimed fantasy series.

The Slow Regard of Silent Things Reviews


The writing by Patrick Rothfuss is as exquisite as ever. The number of beautiful metaphors, the authenticity of Auri's voice and the emotions that the story evokes are as strong as we'd expect -- Marc Alpin * Fantasy Faction *
The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a charming, if rather melancholic tale, that leaves the reader feeling rather sad that it has finished * SFF World *
It is wonderfully written, the prose verging on poetic in places...There's a sense that Rothfuss has chosen every one of those words with great care and precision, using them to tell a story that's lyrical, heart-felt and unique * Starburst Magazine *
This book is worth the excitement and frantic scrabbling of pages; it's worth waiting to get to know Auri that little bit better, to step further into her world and see how she survives. Anything Rothfuss-related is a must-read, whether it be an epic novel, a short story or a novella, and The Slow Regard of Silent Things is no exception. * Wondrous Reads *
For those who have read The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear, this is an absolute must read. * The Bookbag *
an incredibly rewarding read, for an avid reader it's like taking a reading holiday - the differences are a breath of fresh air. * SF Book *
I really loved this story and It made me fall in love with Auri even more....it really is a very special book and It is one I am going to revisit again and again. * Sleepless Musings *
