About the Author

Patrick Rothfuss had the good fortune to be born in Wisconsin in 1973, where the long winters and lack of cable television encouraged a love of reading and writing. After abandoning his chosen field of chemical engineering, Pat became an itinerant student, wandering through clinical psychology, philosophy, medieval history, theatre and sociology. Nine years later, Pat was forced by university policy finally to complete his undergraduate degree in English. When not reading and writing, he teaches fencing and dabbles with alchemy in his basement. Patrick Rothfuss is an award-winning as well as SUNDAY TIMES and NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author. You can learn more about him and his work at www.patrickrothfuss.com, or by following @PatrickRothfuss on Twitter.

Reviews

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 -- Marc Alpin Fantasy Faction The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a charming, if rather melancholic tale, that leaves the reader feeling rather sad that it has finished SFF World It 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 Magazine This 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. Anything Rothfuss-related is a must-read, whether it be an epic novel, a short story or a novella, and The Slow Regard of Silent Things is no exception. Wondrous Reads For those who have read The Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear, this is an absolute must read. The Bookbag an incredibly rewarding read, for an avid reader it's like taking a reading holiday - the differences are a breath of fresh air. SF Book I really loved this story and It made me fall in love with Auri even more...it really is a very special book and It is one I am going to revisit again and again. Sleepless Musings
