Insights for the Booksites - reading mostly for my own pleasure
The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a very charming book. It didn't matter about it not making sense half of the time, because, for me, that is what made it so different and appealing. I mean, the words Patrick Rothfuss has strewn together are way superior to any other normal story we've read countless of times over and over again. For example. I just finished reading Courting Darkness, and it didn't even come close to being as good as this was IMO. I am one of those people who likes this story. Just like his friend Vi whom Patrick mentions in the endnote
I needed to hear these words "It was the worst sort of selfishness to force yourself upon the world." page 108. Wow! So fun and captivating!
