I am 3/4 through this story and determined to finish it. But, it won't be easy. This is probably the worst of the series, and there have been a few I didn't care for. The characters are so flat, tedious, inconsistant. The Protags are supposed to be wise and clever, but everything they do is so amazingly obvious. The masses are more stupid then the masses could ever be in real life. Everyone is reactionary, and once again this entire book is about prophecy. AGAIN. Anyway. I think I am done with Richard and Kahlan. I have read 12 or so of these and I should have stopped with the last one.
I LOVED Clan of the Cave Bear, I really liked Valley of the Horses, I liked Mammoth hunters, I was kind of alright with Plains, and happy with Shelter.... But, this book was so so so inferior. The characters are shallow, the conversations belong in a junior high reading book, the plot is non existant until about the last 10th of the book, the descriptions of caves go on forever, the mother song is sung over and over and over again! If you have to read this book I suggest the library so you can at least skim the majority of the story.
I pray this is the last of the series...
