brut carniollus: in the swamp
Literaturquelle: Patrick Rothfuss – The Slow Regard of Silent Things
The writing occasionally slips into a poetic flow when describing the little things in Auri’s day-to-day life. As Patrick Rothfuss himself says, the book does not do what a „proper book should do“, so that it actually doesn’t have a very proper plot. The story cannot clearly be divided into a beginning, middle and end, and does not have a proper climax. While The Kingkiller Chronicle books develop a plot and multiple characters, this novella explores one character, describing the day-to-day life of the protagonist, showing her view of the world and the way her mind works.
