The Slow Regard of Silent Things Audiobook by Patrick Rothfuss
In the foreword to his new novella The Slow Regard of Silent Things, Patrick Rothfuss provides the reader a warning: “If you haven’t review my other publications, you don’t intend to begin right here.” The other books he’s describing are The Name of the Wind and also The Wise Man’s Fear, the initial 2 installations of his bestselling dream series The Kingkiller Chronicle.
Rothfuss, however, is just half best. True to his word, Slow Respect merely does not work as an intro to the world of Kingkiller. The Slow Regard of Silent Things Audiobook by Patrick Rothfuss Free. (Kvothe, the series’ magic-prodigy-turned-innkeeper protagonist, doesn’t even appear.) Nonetheless, as a standalone tale– one that really requires zero foreknowledge of the world it’s embeded in– it’s a wonderful, touching trip of fantasy.
Slow Regard is the tale– or at least a story– of Auri. Among the most engaging, scene-stealing secondary characters in Kingkiller, Auri is a semi-feral girl whose past is a secret, and also Slow Respect doesn’t try to lessen that. She lives alone in a trick, stretching network of tunnels she calls the Underthing, which exists below the University, the academy of magic that her close friend Kvothe participates in.
Kvothe’s absence looms behind-the-scenes here, however the show belongs completely to Auri. Actually, she’s the only character in the whole publication. A lot more striking, there’s not a word of discussion. Distinguished a third-person viewpoint, Auri’s tale is as basic as it is sweetly quiet: She’s searching the Underthing for a gift for a person who’s mosting likely to see her in seven days. That’s practically it.
Auri’s pursuit is absolutely non-earthshaking, but there’s a seriousness to it that thrusts the bare-boned plot. Auri’s concerns are not those of regular individuals, and also as her search culminates in small revelations– as well as a long, anticlimactic scene where she lovingly makes soap as if it were an alchemical routine– her personality takes on a wonderful aura all her very own. The Slow Regard of Silent Things Audio Book Download. Magic is a main element in the Kingkiller publications, and there are ideas to Auri’s past that appear to aim towards some great power, either shut in or lost. Slow Regard, though, isn’t really concerned with fixing the cipher that is Auri, only with giving her room to bloom.
As well as blossom she does, weirdly as well as wonderfully. Skittish and sensitive, she tends to see everything around her as active, if not straight-out objectified. Pipelines laugh. Wall surfaces leer. Her own lungs blow up with her. Sometimes her affectations come off as twee– for example, she kisses the motionless items she finds in her quest as if they were woodland animals– but that preciousness is countered by Rothfuss’ controlled yet stylish prose.
