Say something about yourself!
I struggled to finish this book. Apparently to be a hero you just have to be the only one with deductive reasoning and the ability to fool people. The story felt thrown together and was very predictable. I don't plan to continue the story of the Seacher. Can someone please tell me why the dragon sounded like Christopher Walkin?!?!
the story so captivating from chapter one. I had a hard time, every time, when I had to do something or when I had to go to bed. I couldn't wait to come back to the audiobook so I could hear more of the story. even now I feel like I am wasting time when I could be listening to the next book in the series. I do not look forward to the day when the entire series will be completed. I will read and or listen to every book in the series over and over again for the rest of my life. I will also recommend this book to all I think will appreciate it the way it should be appreciated.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, but it really dragged on at certain points. it seemed like there was several different books in one. Plus at times it was predictable. in short, great read, but not the best.
No. The story arc as a whole is compelling but having to listed to the torture descriptions go on for what felt like forever made it not worth it.
This is my first Terry Goodkind book. I might read another one if I had a hint that the writing gets better.
I have listened to Sam Tsoutsouva do other books. I thought his performance was weaker here. I wonder if it was the writing as much as anything, but I also wonder if I would have enjoyed the book more if the voice acting had been better. The voices made me feel like the characters were one dimensional.
I think the story as a whole is compelling and would like to find out what happens next if I thought the writing and acting got better.
The book had some good parts, but there were several times when the characters didn't act logically considering how talented they are supposed to be. Again, what was the point of 3 hours of describing the S&M scenes? I feel like you were trying to break me down, not the character.
I am really enjoying the series but not sure if it is because it mirrors one of my favorites, Wheel of Time, or because of the story. ALOT of similaries...Richard-Rand, Aes Sedai -SIsters of the Light, The Ways-The Boundaries, Eqwene al "Vera-Verna both take over office of the one removed and both are collared, He Who Comes With The Dawn-The Bringer of Death, The Sword Callandor-The Sword of Truth-right down to him putting into stone when they have to leave, Siuan-Ann (even the names are similar)-both get removed from office. Tom the WIzard-Zed the wizard, I could go on but it is well written and very good. Th e only thing missing is who was my favorite character in The Wheel of Time is Matrim.
I am new to this genre and bought it on the recommendation of friends. I was delighted and will now delve further into this series and genre.
I wanted to like this. My coworker recommended it as his favorite book, and it started well enough. The land is interesting, but the characters are rather flat. The language is boring, but the narration just plain ruins it. The man chooses to accentuate the 'tender' moments with a vibrato that just triggers rage in me. The 'forbidden love' story is cliche. Bleh. First audio book I straight gave up on.
