Description

The University, a renowned bastion of knowledge, attracts the brightest minds to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences like artificing and alchemy. Yet deep below its bustling halls lies a complex and cavernous maze of abandoned rooms and ancient passageways - and in the heart of it all lives Auri.

Formerly a student at the University, now Auri spends her days tending the world around her. She has learned that some mysteries are best left settled and safe. No longer fooled by the sharp rationality so treasured by the University, 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 rich, atmospheric and lyrical tale, featuring one of the most beloved characters from Rothfuss' acclaimed fantasy series.

    A bit of a sideshow to the main event, which would be fine if that had been explained prior to purchasing the book. The author tried to do this, but itunes didn't. Just as you are getting into Kvothe's story you get dragged into Auri's repetitive more than slightly OCD world in the underthing, which makes a bit of sense in the end, but is a bit painful (and self satisfying, almost pervy, in a literary sense) in the meantime. I read a lot of books, but don't consider myself a literary person, maybe thats why I didn't really appreciate this book. The only way I could appreciate it, was for the anchor points to the trilogy, of alchemy and Kvothe. In which I'm not sure it belongs. But perhaps that is the point.
