I came into this series near the end, by accident. I bought a copy of Phantom on CD from my local used bookstore. I loved it - but of course parts of it didn't make sense. When I googled Terry Goodkind I decided to start the series from the beginning. I'm a litle relieved to be done with it - but heck, I wanted to find out what happened.
It depends. I thought that the books got pretty redundant - which I'm sure is necessary for new readers who enter mid-series - and I think Goodkind's prose is itself pretty redundant. I don't think he ever says something without saying it three other ways.
I hated some of the other performances - they sounded like computer animation. Sam was unnoticeable and that was enough for me.
A most interesting point of morality and self respect was the overall enjoyment of the entire series however the author started flogging the dead horse around book 5 or 6.....
Sam is one of the best narrators for audible in my opinion..he has much more emotion and gives the characters a more realistic tone than some other narrators.....i wish he had done the entire series..there was 3 or 4 books with a horrible narrator that was flat and uninterested in the story and it showed....besides sam does the best old wizard voice
I loved this series when I first listened toe it on tape. Anyone who hasn't heard the books narrated by Nick Sullivan I suggest listening to his narration, he does a great job while this guy puts me to sleep. He should stick with bedtime stories.
The book is a good ending to the series, so it kind of makes up for it, but still just can't get past the narration
Fair ending to an awsome triogy but still worth the buy needed to end with a little more finallity maybe an old fading RICHARD !!!!!
the only complaint I have is the change in narrator, I'd gotten used to how the old One pronounced people's names. Asides from that it was everything I'd come to expect from such a great author!
It tied the whole series together beautifully.
When Niki first sees Kaylan in the Emperor's tent.
No, way to long, but great going to and from work.
Show me the credits!!!! :)
Anyone who has read this far knows when I say by finally. This group of characters have been through it all and let's just say that they are ready to hang up the cape. Richard gets kind of annoying to me because he is so powerful that it's like trying to fight superman. He will always win, which is why I approve of the Author's approach in this last book where everyone's knowledge is slipping and you find yourself shouting out stuff, you know they know but they forgot. The ending is great because it tidies up everything and makes you happy that *all together now* That it's all over!
I don't think I could have handled another trilogy attachment with them, because they seriously go through so much. Just let them get a tan and go on vacation! Please they need a break and they so deserve it. So this is my favorite book out of the series for obvious reasons.
I think it was a great story and it wrapped up the Legacy of the Seeker and the Sword of Truth
Richard Rahl of course , then Zed
Fantastic series climax.
Richard Rahl. He is the hero of the story. For his wit and understanding and believe in human beings.
I liked the gusto of the voice actor for how he played Richard and Jagang. However, previous voice actors in this series did more to create a variety of voices for the different characters and their personalities. Also the audio on this recording wasn't to pro level with all the "s" sounds hissing through my car speakers unlike the previous in this trilogy recorded by the same voice talent.
Great story and end to a saga. Would have loved to hear this with a full cast.
