this was pretty boring up till the end when Kahlan and Richard finally showed up. good kind is losing grip and I'm only finishing this series cuz I wanna know how it ends. not because the individual books are any good.
the narrator is really the worse part. the story may be subpar but the narrator is awful. I wish there was another option but there isn't. he uses like the same two voices for every character and it is very obvious he's reading a script instead of making the story come alive. if he wasnt the only option I'd find someone else to listen to so I could finish off the series.
Not really part of the saga, this book is a filler.
Smaller in scale, plot and characters.
I didn't enjoy this book. It was kinda dumb.
Luckily you don't need this book to keep the story going, and therefore it can be omitted from the series.
At first, I was a bit disappointed that so much of the narrative focus on characters other than Richard and the Mother Confessor, but Goodkind's character work is simply wonderful. This different point of view made this book feel fresh.
I must also acknowledge that Goodkind--throughout the series, but especially here--well handles the concept of subjective good and evil. Characters with differing world views have different conceptions of good and evil. Goodkind handles the dichotomy masterfully, and also shows how easily those worldviews can be shaped by the influences around us.
you have to wait until the 54th chapter to get to the "main" characters Richard and Kahlan. and one of the two actual main characters is a delusional psychopath. the other a bimbo. but it's worth choking through for the slaughter that zed gives the order and a couple minor characters.
Why oh why Terry? There is a good reason why there is so many mixed reviews on the book. For one , don't expect Richard or Khalan to come in the story till the very end. The rest is spent on Two bastard children of Darkan Rahul. Tell a story over and over three different ways. It would have been enjoyable if the main character of this book weren't so annoying. I thought soul of fire was the worst book so far. This one takes the cake. It is by far the dullest, mind numbing boring . I did complete it , I don't Ike skipping books in series in case I might miss something. The narrator did ok . He didn't bother me as much as other listeners. I did notice the robot voice they talked about. Just really disappointed the book.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the series which is why I bought this book. I was very disappointed that the main plot did not continue at all in the story. I really wanted to see what happens next in the battle against the evil empire. Instead of continuing the plot that I was looking forward to, This book covers Richard Rawl's two siblings, which was rather disappointing . The worst part about this book was the narrator. He was horrible in book 2. I think he was a little bit better in this book especially as it went on, but I still had to grit my teeth just a bit to get through it. He reads like a computer generated voice, he has very little expression in his voice.
Jim bond has no expression to his voice and uses no inflections. You cannot tell who is talking when he changes characters. I had to grit my teeth and get through book 2 just because I enjoyed the story so much. I was very disappointed to see that he was narrating this book as well. I do not understand why Audible would provide such a poor quality audible book for the money that we pay! Jim Bond is a horrible narrator! I see that he is also narrating the next book also. If I had a choice I wouldn't not buy the next book just because I despise listening to this narrator but I really like the series so I will get my teeth and get through his horrible narration.
