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.

What made the experience of listening to The Slow Regard of Silent Things the most enjoyable?
This is an unusual and delicious piece of writing. Patricks use of language and his story telling are simply elegant and and endlessly enjoyable.
Any additional comments?
Although I appreciated the authors reading of this work...I hope and request that his next novel of the series returns to the original narrator...to keep the voices of each character through the whole series.

Starts with a forward warning "you might not want to buy this audiobook", pointing anyone who hasn't read the first two books would do better buying those before reading this. Then even warns those who have that's "it's a strange story".
Narrated by the author and is 7 days in Auri's underworld. Was expecting to learn interesting insights into the character and underworld - but I didn't. To me, not much seems to happen! It's a "SLOW regard of silent things" - no dialogue, no other characters. It's not dull, but it's not riviting! Just "OK".
10 mins at the end is spent by author "apologising" for the book which he describes himself as a "narrative train wreck" and hoping that it's quirky style will resonate with some fans (since kingkiller chronicles fans will be like lemmings off a cliff - dying to read it).
You may be left with the feeling that time spent on the third kingkiller chronicle book would have been more worthwhile.

To quote the author "strange and sweet story". For all of us, who are slightly broken, just like Auri.

The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a story Kvothe's friend Auri who lives underneath it all. It is a great for readers and listeners like me, who dwell in a world of our own and who feel a little lost and broken sometimes. It is not a continuation of the Kingkiller Chronicles nor is it a prequel, it is just a tale about one of the awesome character's that Kvothe befriends. Also it is great to hear Patrick Rothfuss narrating his own story.
