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.

    By A must!!!!!
    It's OK- coming from the other books it's just odd and a bit hard to get into. Worth a shot. Read 'Name of the Wind' in a weekend. It's been 2 weeks and still can't get through this one....
  • I Love Auri

    This book is not for everyone. It's for those who fell in love with The Name of the Wind, The Wise Man's Fear, and most importantly Auri. If this is you. Jump in. I can't wait to see how Auri is featured in Door of Stone.

    Needless to say when this popped up I was really excited as the first two books were great. The best way to explain this book is that the publisher pushed the writer into coming up with something to appease his fans. I kept reading, hoping something would happen, it didn't. Do not waste your time, it's like going to the dentist for 4 hours.

    Out of the ordinary, but in it's own way both charming & beautiful.

    If you aren’t wanting the detailed backstory of a girl who says this, “Bad enough to be a lettuce. How awful to think you are a lettuce too.” Then you should probably skip this book... I’m so glad that this story was published and I got an opportunity to live a week in Auri’s head. It would have been a shame for it to end up on cheap 8-1/2x11 printer stock and a fading HP ink cartridge, relegated to the bottom of some box. It was fantastic and if you’re a fan of Auri, there’s probably a good chance you’ll enjoy it, if not outright love it.
  • Wonderful

    Lovely short story about Auri. It elevates her from a curiosity to full fledged character. Don't expect Kovthe to make an appearance though. It's a solo show.
