Summary

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.

Well written, but nothing happens

To be fair, the author did put a warning on the book that it's not like his other books.

I listened until the end in case something interesting happened, but unfortunately it didn't.

The book was very well written though, and performed excellently (I deliberately didn't purchase the other version narrated by the author).

Poor production quality and story

Although the narrator is great as always the production quality with chapters out of order and duplicated is very lacking. On the story, as a fan of the previous 2 books this was a sore disappointment. Slow and boring not for me!

Chapters messed up

I liked the story, and Mr. Degas once again made an amazing performance, but the chapters of this audiobook are all messed up... disappointed this has not been fixed despite previous customers pointing it out.

This book is a beautiful web of words, that weaves its way through the mind of a broken girl.

Disappointed

Not really a story, there no real structure to this book. I would have love to learn more about the character, the whys and how she got to the underthing ect but not to be. It was as always written in an excellent way, however did not really flow, was a snap shot into the mind of a mad lady. Not helped by the fact the character was mixed up?! Saving grace was Narration was excellent!

Bad QC

Chapters out of order and duplicated. Just a bit messy really. Not worth the cost of a credit. Really disappointing that this could get past whoever signs off on these things.

Errors in recording but very nice

The book itself is great listen, however two of the chapters (first and last) are recorded twice, therefore the book is a bit longer than the other editions, in terms of the book it makes perfect sense since it is already quite weird, however i think it is good for you to know before purchasing.
