Publisher's Summary

Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place.
Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries.
The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri’s life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Auri’s eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows....
In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of The Kingkiller Chronicle’s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world.

I was warned.

When Rothfuss says this book isn't for everyone, believe him. I found it slow and tedious. The audio book though is great for insomniacs.

I wanted to know more about Auri - I know nothing more

I was really looking forward to learning about Auri - her past, what makes her tick, etc. I got none of that in this. Just a random jumble of words and the phrase "but no" entirely too often. Maybe it's my engineer brain but I did not grok this story at all.
