The Slow Regard of Silent Things

Book Notes

Okay, this book starts out with a warning from Rothfuss about how you, the reader, shouldn't buy this book. In as much as I had already bought the book, the warning was a bit too late.

Amusingly enough, the last part of the book continues this trend, with an explanation of how the book came to be, and came to be published.

I enjoyed the book, even if I know that Andy hated the book. It's about Auri, and the perceived workings of an off-drummer, but-I'm-sane-from-my-perspective mind. It has nothing to do with Kvothe, which puts it in a weird place.

I wouldn't recommend the book.

The illustrations, however, are delightful, and could make really nice woodblock or letterpress prints.
