The narrator was fantastic, great voice. I really like the Sword of Truth series. I've read all the books and have listened to all the audio. I don't care for Terry Goodkind's habit of restating information from past books. He goes overboard to say the least. I suspect he uses it for filler... With that being said the story itself is very solid and entertaining.
I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
"Mind what people do, not only what they say, for deeds will betray a lie", is the lesson Richard and Kahlan learn in Soul of Fire Book 5 in The Sword of Truth series. Kahlan unwittingly released the three chimes upon the world when she saved Richards life in Temple of the Winds, and as a result magic is dying. Together they travel to Anderith which is protected by the mysterious weapon the Dominie Dirtch, to try and set things right. A great read and listen although Buck Schimer tends to become a tad monotonous, in his narration after a while. Still an enjoyable listen and another great story in the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind.
My audibles edition of this book refuses to sync with my Kindle version. I have to manually update each chapter progression on both my iPhone and my Kindle.
they used half the book on explaining about a country which should have had less then 30min for the story to be told -.- only got half way through the book. found it very bad. the story was extremely slow and the chimes made absolutely no sense (so they where made to combat magic in a time where EVERY mage had both types, but they doesnt remove sub magic o.O say what, then they are completely useless in the time when they was made..)..
besides that there are too many stupid decisions made which makes little sense, and almost nothing happens for the first 12hours....
will skip the last half and just go on to the next one
finally they found a decent narrator while he isn't as good as the one who did the first book he is a greatly appreciated change from the terrible narrators that did books 2,3,4. though i agree with other people this story isn't as good as the others though it still is ok.
The first half of this book has too much summarizing. Slow, almost boring.
Debating on whether this series is worth my time and money to listen to the next one.
The ending picks up but is it too little, too late?
Switching narrators is really a problem throughout this series. Although this one is ok, some are terrible. It's very annoying when they pronounce the main characters names different. It 's distracting.
Also, I am getting tired of all the rape and violence against women. Is it really inspiring?
the story has all the high of the previous books, but the ending is weak. It has a lack of conclusion to some of the mail characters.
The ending was uneventful. there were to many lose end left unanswered.
He was what I come to think of what Richard and Zed should sound like.
yes, I was hoping for more of the situations to come to conclusions.
Drew VanDyche (aka Drew VanDyke), brother of scifi writer David VanDyke is the co-author of Switchback: A Supernatural Siblings Novel.
Goodkind should have paid me to waste my time reading/listening to this book. I'm surprised his editors let him get away with putting out such poorly crafted fiction. It's like he had two different books, and tried to press them together in some coherent sense, but he only serves to lose the formerly secure sense of the personalities of his characters, as if not only his characters, but he himself was having an identity crisis. Don't waste your time with this. You'll want most of the characters to die as quickly as possible, but unfortunately it is a sloooooow, loooong, and maudlin melodramatic death. Save your money. This book will only annoy you.
