Review: The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

The Slow Regard of Silent ThingsMy rating: 5 of 5 stars

The story follows Auri – a side character in Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicles books – giving the reader a look through her eyes and her world.

This was the favorite book I have read all year, probably the last few years. The story telling and narrative in this book are nothing less than beautiful and amazing!

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the book:

“But how awful would that be? How terrible to live surrounded by the stark, sharp, hollowness of things that simply were enough?”

“To be so lovely and so lost. To be all answerful with all that knowing trapped inside. To be beautiful and broken.”

“She felt the panic rising in her then. She knew. She knew how quickly things could break. You did the things you could. You tended to the world for the world’s sake. You hoped you would be safe. But still she knew. It could come crashing down and there was nothing you could do. And yes, she knew she wasn’t right. She knew her everything was canted wrong. She knew her head was all unkilter. She knew she wasn’t true inside. She knew.”
