Read Patrick Rothfuss' warning about The Slow Regard of Silent Things

The Slow Regard of Silent Things

Auri lives in a dark place under the University, and there's a lot you don't know about her. Patrick Rothfuss' new book explores Auri's world, her mysteries, her haunting story. However, the author has a warning for potential readers...

You might not want to buy this book.

 I know, that’s not the sort of thing an author is supposed to say. The marketing people aren’t going to like this. My editor is going to have a fit. But I’d rather be honest with you right out of the gate.

 First, if you haven’t read my other books, you don’t want to start here.

 My first two books are The Name of The Wind and The Wise Man’s Fear. If you’re curious to try my writing, start there. They’re the best introduction to my world. This book deals with Auri, one of the characters from that series. Without the context of those books, you’re probably going to feel pretty lost. [...]

 On the other hand, if you’d like to learn more about Auri, this story has a lot to offer. If you love words and mysteries and secrets. If you’re curious about the Underthing and alchemy. If you want to know more about the hidden turnings of my world…. 

Well, then this book might be for you.
