The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

The Slow Regard of Silent Things is set at The University, where the brightest minds work to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences, such as artificing and alchemy. Auri, a former student (and a secondary but influential character from Rothfuss’s earlier novels) now lives alone beneath the sprawling campus in a maze of ancient and abandoned passageways. There in The Underthing, she feels her powers and learns to see the truths that science—and her former classmates—have overlooked. From Goodreads.

This was nothing like I expected. I at least thought I would find out a bit more about where Auri was from or maybe even how long she had been living beneath the University. You get no such answers from this book.
It is a weird but interesting tale of how Auri sees the world. Everything has it's place and its own name and things will be unhappy if they are not in their place.
The title is very accurate description of this book.
