Publisher's Summary

Patrick Rothfuss narrates The Slow Regard of Silent Things, a companion novella to his bestselling 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.

Wonderful, heartbreaking and lovely; hauntingly beautiful word-smithery. I love it, more than just a little. Like Auri.

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.
