If you like the Sword or Truth books already, you have to read it
yes, I have enjoyed all of the sword of truth books as good fiction. The last few books before this have become more and more blatant with his personal philosophies and politics though.
If necessary...his voices are good, but he has a very "whiney" voice that he uses when one character is lecturing another (which happens a lot in these books) and it is one of the few inflections that he has. In long speeches it is very grating.
yes - I miss the sword of truth TV series, I would like to see more of it translated to the screen.
For 3 out of the 4 parts of this audio book the story is sooooo redundant. The same story line stated over and over and over. If I boiled all the new plot down it would take up 1 page. Very Disappointed.
Technology, Mobile and Gaming enthusiast. Mischief and fun...
All my favorite characters were there, however, Kahlan plays a very small part due to her being affected by the chainfire spell...
Jim Bond gets all the character and place names right... and even changes his voice a little depending on who is speaking...
When Nicci had a talk with richard and encouraged him to carry on, even though no-one believed him about Kahlan's existence.
I don't know what it is with this series and the narrators, but so far they are hit and miss. The narrator for this book seemed bored with his job. Very little effort put into his performance/reading. The story was well written, and you feel Richard's frustration and confusion as your own.
Didn't like... Though you could always hear him.
this book was one of the first I have had as an audio. It was well read and I could still use my imagination of where they were and what was happening.
I am now listening to the other audio books in this series and I am liking them as well
Richard and Kalan as they want so little but still cannot have it.
the way he could do different voices to emphase the way they could have talked.
No extreme reaction just an unusaul one as I could still think about other things and get thing done with my hands like washing up the dishes.
Overall this was a good experience for me. I will be buying other books to listen to in the future
This is getting to be borderline
Yes but I am beginning to wonder.
His character voices are weak.
This is the ninth book in the series. The author spends too much time explaining what went before. I've read the prior books, quit repeating. The same applies to his idea of the way the world should be run. Get back to the story.
I believe some folk may really love Goodkind and this series. I have tried to read several of his books but I can't get into them. I think the abundance of detail is exhausting. Just my opinion though, some may think otherwise. I didn't care for the reader either, they just didn't fit the book. The overall story line seemed interesting, it was just everything else that did not fit.
I was not very impressed with the beginning, but towards the end of part III the story started to come together. Can't wait to start the next section.
I found some of the descriptions way too long winded and boring - e.g. a trivial scene of someone inconsequential being chopped up - describes the detail of reflections in sweat drop flying from his head (or such like) - stretches what should have been a few seconds into a few minutes of description. Also unnecessary repetitions (as described by others). Evidently Goodkind also got tired of this waste of book-filler (or realized it would take an extra 3 volumes to complete the story) and it got a bit faster moving and interesting. The narration was also not as engaging as the earlier books.
