The writing by Patrick Rothfuss is as exquisite as ever. The number of beautiful metaphors, the authenticity of Auri's voice and the emotions that the story evokes are as strong as we'd expect - Fantasy FactionThe Slow Regard of Silent Things is a charming, if rather melancholic tale, that leaves the reader feeling rather sad that it has finished - SFF WorldIt is wonderfully written, the prose verging on poetic in places...There's a sense that Rothfuss has chosen every one of those words with great care and precision, using them to tell a story that's lyrical, heart-felt and unique - Starburst MagazineThis book is worth the excitement and frantic scrabbling of pages; it's worth waiting to get to know Auri that little bit better, to step further into her world and see how she survives.
