    Great review. This perfectly expresses my rage towards Terry Goodkind in a succinct and effective manner. Some people should just stick to carpentry.

    Hey I totally agree with you I read the first three books then stopped because of how dumb the plot was getting if there was one up till then. I really didn't know why I stopped reading this series until I read the review and it clicked. I guess my subconscious was warning me lol. Also after I finished the third book and found out there were twelve books I was thinking how can this keep going on I mean hes already a Seeker a War wizard and a ruler how can they add anymore.

    This was one of the best series written. Temple of the Winds and Chainfire were some of the best reads. They are easy to read and always a great adventure.

    Well I started this series cause I heard it was good and it was back when I was fairly new to the fantasy genre. I agree that it's a bad book and if I remember well in the last book in the series there were like 5 pages of Richard ranting Goodkind's philosophies but skipping these stuff it was mildly entertaining

    I don't agree with you at all. Sure, it has flaws and can be a bit overbearing at times. However, the world that Goodkind has created is fantastic, even though it can be offensive at times. Either you like it or hate it, most people are discuraged by the way Goodkind expresses and develops his political and philosophical views.

    I have read all the books, and honestly, I'm torn. Half the time, I was so immersed in them that I wouldn't eat all day, but then you would get to a certain part where, goodkind would just force his anti- religious views down your throat, or sometimes, he would describe things in too great or detail, in which cases I found myself skipping redundant paragraphs of "she had him, he was hers, she could feel him through her magic, he was hers she had him. Overall, when it was good, it was immersing, yet graphic, and when it was bad it was tedious.

    It makes it hard for the idea of their love to be so strong but i like when they are separate they are both strong characters and they would be in each other's way in some respects because they are both protective and the story would go nowhere near what they accomplish separate is pretty incredible and just shows their strength more

    This is my all time favorite series. Ive read all the books and i cant wait for the rest of the series to come out. Goodkind has created an amazing, detailed world full of war, honor, love, loss and adventure. The main charachters are strong, smart, and face conflicts that are easy to relate to. The 'Wizards rules' are rules to live by, even in real life.

    After spending so much time reading this series I can't help but like it no matter how bad it was so I CAN CONVINCE MYSELF THAT I DIDN'T WASTE MY TIME.

    This was by far my favorite fantasy series. I have read it twice. I love that he actually brings everything together in the end, I love the love story throughout, I love the social and political commentary. Richard is my ultimate hero.
