    The finest voices reading a wonderful selection of poetry accompanied by selected classical music.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Excellent poems, and excellent readers, BUT I found the background music intrusive and completely unnecessary-- If you like poetry, you know it stands by itself. Having a sound tract is like listening to too song played simultaneously. arg!

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Lock Kelly draws the reader or listener in with generosity and grace. This is by far the most elegant and user friendly approach to the mindfulness/meditation literature that I have come across.

    Deep below the University, there is a dark place. Few people know of it: a broken web of ancient passageways and abandoned rooms. A young woman lives there, tucked among the sprawling tunnels of the Underthing, snug in the heart of this forgotten place. Her name is Auri, and she is full of mysteries. The Slow Regard of Silent Things is a brief, bittersweet glimpse of Auri’s life, a small adventure all her own. At once joyous and haunting, this story offers a chance to see the world through Auri’s eyes. And it gives the reader a chance to learn things that only Auri knows.... In this book, Patrick Rothfuss brings us into the world of one of The Kingkiller Chronicle’s most enigmatic characters. Full of secrets and mysteries, The Slow Regard of Silent Things is the story of a broken girl trying to live in a broken world.

    What did you love best about The Slow Regard of Silent Things?

    I love Rothfuss's book, but I am over the moon about The Slow Regard of Silent Things.
    Its a magical story which shows the capacity of the human soul and mind to animate its world and remain resilient even in circumstances of extreme deprivation. If you liked Cast Away and the main character's relationship with Wilson, you will never want this book to end.
    It is lovely and strange and beguiling and heroic and delicate and caste iron. You will never regard your mantel piece, or your desk top in the same way again.
