Great read! I didn't like at first that the main characters were nowhere to be found for the majority, but you really grow to like the other characters that Goodkind introduces.
Not bad, but not great
Well the fact that the main characters of the series are barely in this book is the most interesting thing. The least interesting thing is the main characters of this book.
After his reading of Stone of Tears, I really didn't like Mr. Bond's work. After this reading, I will take Stone of Tears as a one off from a great voice actor as his work here was awesome.
The end because I was happy to be done it.
If I re-listen to this series, I will skip this book without a doubt.
After The Soul of the Fire, I was dismayed to learn that Richard and Kahlan weren't in The Pillars of Creation until the very end. TSOTF was so boring with all its side-characters, that I feared the same with TPOC. Boy, I was wrong! This book, in one word, ROCKS! I loved it! And it's nice to hear Jim Bond again; let the haters hate on him!
To focus on the series main characters and change the robotic sounding narrator.
I hope not, but I may be forced to if I continue the series.
Honestly it's just a total deviation from the series with the different character focus, just doesn't work for me.
I really know very little about the process of turning a novel into an audiobook. However, I just don't understand how some of these narrators can get through the producer's quality control mechanism in place. How do you think Jim Bond is a good narrator and continue to use his services for the series? It's beyond me....
Besides the fact that this is the slowest book in the series, the narration made it worse. I'm disappointed to see that this same narrator will be narrating the next book. I'm continuing on in this series because I'm committed. I'm hoping the other books will be better than this.
All right guys I would give this book a 5 star if I was not screaming up a storm in my head with how all the actions could be taken in a wrong way. not to mention how little all the characters I came to love were in this book. however I will grudgingly admit the the new character Jenson has grown on me. this book was a great building block for her character. I just hope after this one she keeps on appearing otherwise this book will be just a filler in my opinion. anyways happy reading!
