"OMG what has happen to Goodking"
Very very frustrating. I don't know what the author is thinking. For the last 3 books, he has changed the format and i'm just not enjoying them. His first 10 books were some of the best books i've ever read but the last three in the series are becoming more and more of a joke. Terry Goodkind does not wrap up the sub plot as he has done in each book in the beginning and this new format is very drawn out. This book worse than the last two. I think maybe he is just stretching the same story line out for another 10 books necessarily instead of actually finishing a story in each book and starting a new sub plot in the bigger story like in early in the series. Come Terry, get back to the format that has got you to this far.
finished the sub story line like he does in the first 10 books
very slow and drawn out. Could have said the exactly same thing in a book half this size.
Unfortunately, because of the way Terry Goodkind is writing the new books, yes there needs to be a followup book. I getting tired of unfinished stories and don't think i'll be rushing to get the next book.
I hope the author actually takes note of the many similar comments about the way he is writing these days and goes back to his old format and providing a story that has a beggining, middle and END for each of his books
"A shockingly disappointing adition to the series"
The story progressed in a painfully sluggish manner and ended in a way that made me feel that Goodkind simply wrapped things up as quickly as possible to meet a deadline.
Hey......it's a Sword of Truth book which is probably my favorite series......too bad it wasn't a good addition to the series
No spoiler, but seriously?...........really?..........that character?......whatever...
Terrry Gookind was my favorite author and I love the story of Kahlan and Richard - the entire first 10 books of it - but now he turned into something altogether different - or common, unfortunately...does everything has to be about zombies these days? He wrote an exceptional story but now turns average or less...
Leave the zombies out. He is such a good writer, he does not need them...
"Another damn Zombie book"
A better storyline and for gods sake, if I have to hear the word "soul" one more time I am going to effing scream!
End this stupid half people storyline and get back to making magical stories
He's ok, he's not the worst narrator I've heard by far. We need more talented narrators like Kate Reading and Michael Kramer
Not particularly, I'm only finishing it because I paid for it, but I'm not really all that in love with it.
"I can't believe he actually wrote this book..."
A plot that actually went somewhere.
This is by far the worst book he has ever written. The story wasn't told well, and it was completely devoid of feeling. Goodkind used to be the kind of writer that made you laugh out loud and cry, but this book just left me feeling empty.
He is a great narrator. I like his voice as a whole, and he has decent differences in character voices.
I wish I had never read past Confessor. This book will ruin any fan's love of The Sword of Truth series.
"Opinion on Severed Souls"
Terry Goodkind didn't put his heart into his book so it is slow. I want him to take me on a real Journey...for the next book maybe Bring the sliph back and bring in the mud people to fight. He could show me some 3 thousand year old magic. Bring the barriers back up. I want him to show me that Richard and Kahlan aren't completely grown up. Show more spark. He put on a performance but it seems like he feels sad about something so the book is slow and sleepy. The next book could end with a bang because he he is setting up for a big battle or maybe two. If I was him I would bring Richard back and bring with him some underworld magic. There are so many ideas and so many tools he can work with.
This book is terrible. I loved the SoT books but this was just bad. Let's all play the terry goodkind drinking game. Every time he says "occult power" take a sip. You'll be drunk within two chapters. I definitely don't recall the original SoT books being this atrocious.
"How many times can we describe the same thing."
I really liked the first few books in this series. But lately TG has been struggling it seems to fill a book with enough words. The whole bit of describing something over and over and over in one scene is getting really annoying. Which sucks because I'm already invested in the characters.
"Worst Book in the Series"
A faster pace, By far the pace is to slow! Story line should of been better. It read like Terry is trying to get 10 more books out of this series
The Story line could and should of been concluded in this 3rd book.
"Not one of Terry Goodkind's best"
Mixed. I LOVED the early books in the Sword of Truth series. The last 3 were very, very repetitive, with the characters not acting as strong and smart as they were in the early books. (Omen Machine was the worst!) This book was very repetitive. Did I tell you that this book repeated things over and over??
Probably, just because I love Richard and Kahlan so much. Really hoping Terry Goodkind gets a better editor to cleanse his work of so much repetition, and to bring back Richard and Kahlan to the smart, strong characters they are.
Please NO "HONEY ZARK!!!" It drove me nuts! The character's name is Hannis Arc.Otherwise the reader did a decent job with the words he was given. He really tried to use different voices for the characters.
Cliff hanger, so it does need a follow up. May the author make it a good one, and not just a continuation of the last 3.
