    Only thing I didn't like was the price

    The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a sweet look at a week in the underthing from Auri's point of view... that's it. There is no major plot, no Kvothe, no action, and only a few revelations about Auri. So if you're looking to further the KingKiller Chronicle strory line you'll be disappointed. Rothfuss even warns as much in the foreword. It's also very short, so you're paying full price for a short novella that doesn't stand well on its own. That all being said, I quite liked it. I knew what I was getting into and I was interested in learning more about Auri. It doesn't follow the typical story formula, sure, but Auri isn't a typical character. A lot of reviews mention that the writing is self indulgent but that's to be expected from Rothfuss. If none of this sounds interesting to you, don't buy it, you wont be missing anything story wise. However if it does, you'll probably enjoy it. I did.

    Too short for the price!

    Enjoyed the book but extremely disappointed at the novella length! Judging by the cost of the purchase, I expected the length of the other Rothfuss books and so did not pay attention to the number of pages. I'm trying not to whine but in truth I feel somewhat cheated. A shame as I very much enjoy the author's work

    Fantastic companion novella

    As the author says, you really should read The Name of the Wind before you read this, although in my opinion it stands alone quite well. I'm not normally a fan of novellas or short stories, but this is one of those rare short and sweet gems. Highly recommended.

    The Slow Regard Of Silent Things.

    I love this book! I read the name of the wind by te same author, and loved it as well. It's different in a lovely, brilliant way, and somehow I feel I know and understand this girl. Strange maybe, but there you have it!
