Description

Patrick Rothfuss narrates The Slow Regard of Silent Things, a companion novella to his best-selling Kingkiller Chronicle novels that shares an enchanting new perspective on the Four Corners realm.

Renowned as a bastion of knowledge, the University draws the brightest minds to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences, such as artificing and alchemy. Yet deep below its bustling halls lies a complex web of abandoned rooms and ancient passageways.

In the heart of this cavernous maze is a young woman named Auri, who calls this Underthing her home. Formerly a student at the University, Auri now spends her days tending to the world around her. She knows that some mysteries are better settled and safe. No longer fooled by the sharp rationality so trusted by those above her, 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 richly atmospheric and lyrical tale that features one of the most beloved characters from his acclaimed fantasy series.

Not for me

I am one of the people the author speaks of who this story is not for. I love stories where people move the world more than those in which they are moved by it. Even so, this story is unique and endearing and I could not move on until I did my due and finished it. It took me longer to listen to than the books about Kvothe, but I felt the need to finish it. This story is neither good nor bad, but it fits it's PoV character true and perfect which is exactly what it needed to do

It shook me to my core in the most unusual way

This book connected with who I am and made sense of everything I have ever felt. It consumed me from the first chapter and carried on consuming. It reminded me of the person I am and why That’s am amazing thing.

just what you can expect from Patrick Rothfuss

just what you can expect from Patrick Rothfuss. the use of knowledge and unthoughts are remarkable. there is no space as the silent peace in auris love.

Everything Sings its Own Music

Just like the fey Auri, this is a whimsical tale full of gentle discovery and sweet contemplation. It unfolds softly, slowly revealing itself, refusing to be hurried or jostled along. Ironically, it is not silent at all. Instead, it hums with the rising and falling vibrations which characterize the real world in which we live, if only we would take the time to listen with suitable respect. The Author’s somewhat anxious apologies are quite unnecessary as this is a carefully crafted piece. Its pace is fluid and controlled as it ebbs and flows, matching the cadences of Auri’s deeply solitary life. The narrative moves irresistibly forward; the reader is drawn onwards by a thread of dramatic tension attached to the vital question: will he come? I found ‘The Slow Regard of Silent Things’ peculiarly poignant. It left me full of longing, with an aching heart that longs for more. - Ruth Stewart

Not my cup of tea

Wtf did I just listen to? I am in the other camp than all those beta readers he tested the book on. I liked the King Killer Chronicles - but not this story.

A heartbreaking yet wonderful peek into a delicate mind

This was a lovely and very strangely written short story. The reader must take heed of the authors warning that it is not written in a conventional manner at all. It is, however, a beautifully described insight into the life and mind of one of the most wonderful characters ever conceived.

Unlike anything else, enjoy!

In this book, narrated by the author (which is more perfect here than anywhere else I've encountered it), is a masterful picture lovingly painted in words. A strong recommendation to any who enjoy new ways to view how the English language can be used.

The picture itself paints a way to view the world, as it is seen by the main character. Not in the sense that it's for you to adopt, it just explains how this person in particular sees her surroundings, using the context and world set up in the King killer chronicles. This puts the story itself in the sidelines, and let's us marvel at the ride we are along for.

Again, a unique story to enjoy.

I got lost in the Underthing :)

I got hopelessly lost in the Underthing by listening to this story. Then I discovered someone's blog posts with chapter by chapter analysis - and pictures that are in the print version of this book. Those told me A LOT. And they are so beautiful.

This Rothfuss book is just so... different :) Mind the disclaimer at the beginning.

I was a bit wary of Pat Rothfuss narrating his own story, but that worked out very nicely. Good job, sir!

Please keep to writing books rather than narrating

Somewhat pleasent and nice to read, Mr. Rothfuss is by far on the lower end of professionals when it comes to narrating... If possible prevent him from ever doing it again. Rupert Degas did a magnificent job with the first 2 books.

Nicht wirklich schlecht. Auch nicht richtig gut.

Eine seltsame kleine Geschichte, in der eigentlich nichts passiert. Sie bringt leider auch die Hauptgeschichte nicht voran. Sie bietet einen langatmigen, detaillierten Einblick in Auris Kopf, der aber letztlich mehr verstörend als erhellend bleibt.

unusual and compelling.

a tantalising tale read by the author himself. a carefully crafted book that works well as an audiobook.

poetic

the way of thinking and the poetic and descriptive beauty of this so simple story, is for anyone. It shows the way Auri goes about in a world shattered and in unrest trying to make sense in her own world, as so many of us do. But watching her leaves a happy smile on any reader.
