Patrick Rothfuss says several times that it's weird but boy is it really. It took me a while to get into the story, especially with Auri's way of thinking, but I enjoyed it. It was odd to have several of my favorite characters be objects... ( )

It’s not often an author feels the need to caveat his story in the foreword and afterword. But as Patrick Rothfuss notes (repeatedly), his novella The Slow Regard of Silent Things “doesn’t do what a normal story is supposed to do,” and probably isn’t for everyone.

Rothfuss’s anxiety stems from the fact that the plot is essentially just a week in the life of Auri, a supporting character in his epic fantasy series The Kingkiller Chronicle. Auri lives in the Underthing, a network of forgotten rooms and tunnels beneath the University, the school Kvothe, the series’ protagonist, attends to learn magic. In the main books, Kvothe befriends Auri by playing his lute and exchanging small gifts with her. He recognizes she’s a bit addled—likely due to dabbling with magic, which drives some people mad. But he doesn’t know the half of it.

Auri is adorably insane.

She spends much of The Slow Regard of Silent Things preparing for her next visit with Kvothe, and searching for suitable gifts to give him. The Underthing is full of old sundries left behind as the University built above it over the centuries: bottles and gears and keys and clothes and all sorts of other objects that deserve to be happy, to be in their proper place, surrounded by just the right companions, in just the right spots. The rooms of the Underthings have personalities to accommodate as well, as do the days themselves—Auri determines her course of action each morning based on what she hears, sees, or senses upon waking.

I loved this characterization, and the beautiful writing that sustained it. But the story didn’t always hold my attention, primarily because there’s very little tension or conflict aside from Auri’s struggles with anxiety. And with no real conflict, there’s no real resolution. Yes, we find out a bit more about what she can do (although not how she came to be as she is). But I wish Rothfuss had given Auri a more compelling problem to solve—maybe an intruder in the Underthing—and relegated the gift-finding to subplot status.

Even so, his affection for her kept me going. While Rothfuss probably enjoys telling Kvothe’s tale, he clearly loves Auri, and how she knows “her everything” is “canted wrong,” and her head is “all unkilter,” but presses on anyway. I doubt many authors have cared so much about one of their characters; she’s certainly worth writing and reading about.

Just maybe not in such low-stakes fashion.

I've been listening (a re-read) to the author narrate the story. I think reading it myself, as I did the first time, so I can see the pix and back-read sentences, worked better for me. Even having the map (from the link above) next to the book, so I had a visual about where she was, upped my enjoyment. I've thought of DNF'ing the audio a couple times but so far I'm still listening. ETA: I found my old notes inside the physical copy (below) so yeah. I'm going to DNF the audio and re-read myself someday. obsess much?

Author's Foreward:

You might not want to buy this book. ...

Yeah... I thought we were going to get a little more insight into the world of the Kingkiller Chronicles. A little more about the University. A little more about Auri.

I guess one out of three ain't bad?

Basically, it's Auri being strange and re-arranging junk. Also there's a riveting scene of Auri making soap.

On the more positive side, there is some rather beautiful wordplay here. That's one thing that Rothfuss can do particularly well: wrote evocative descriptions.

Honestly, I found the Endnote the most interesting. A star just for that. It's always interesting to see into the mind of a writer. I didn't find the story itself "disconcerting, off-putting, or confusing" but rather odd and boring. So it goes. It probably just wasn't for [me].

Author's Endnote:

... If you're one of the peopel who found this story disconcerting, off-putting, or confusing, I apologize. The truth is, it probably just wasn't for you. The good news is that there are many other stories out there that are written for you. Stories that you will enjoy much more.

This story is for all the slightly broken people out there.

I am one of you. You are not alone. You are all beautiful to me. ( )

I love Patrick Rothfuss and I will probably read everything he ever publishes. I also really like the character of Auri. This book is not an easy read though, and it really doesn't tell any kind of story. But it's still beautiful in it's own way. It fits...or Auri fits her story. At the very least it provides an interesting insight into Auri and helps readers understand her a bit better. ( )
