Blood of the Fold is an outstanding continuation of the Sword of Truth series. The narrator is OK. Normally I don't write reviews; however, I saw a couple of other very unfair and negative reviews so I want to, so to say, 'shed some truth'. I have a 2-hour commute to work and only good audio books make the time bearable. The narrator isn't great but he's not terrible, and without a doubt, much better than any Kindle-like auto-reader (duh!)
It's one of the very best audiobooks in my library
Brandon Sanderson's - The Way of Kings
It's a tie between Matrim Cauthin, and Ibarra
I was deeply touched by the moral dilemma the members of Operation Redwing faced when they encountered the unarmed villagers. My heart goes out to all our soldiers who have been in similar situations, who made the right decision, but now have to suffer with those memories and the consequences of those decisions.
Falling Down (then getting back up and fighting like hell)
This is a story that needed to be told.
There is a lot of substance to this story and I think I might catch a few more things If I listened again. However, due to the profanity that could singe the beard right off Lucifer the Dark Lord of the underworld himself, I'm not sure I can.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who liked Robin Hobb's Farseer series
Michael Page's performance was brilliant. He was able to capture the age and mood of each character's voice.
I'm a Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson fan and I believe other readers who like them will also like Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles. The story held my interest at all times. Like Jordan and Sanderson, Rothfuss creates a very interesting world, yet does not get bogged down. The story never drags out on details ad nauseum. I can't wait to get to the next book "The Wise Man's Fear . . ."
Elantris is one of those books you have to read, or listen to, a couple times. I can't count the number of times I've re-read or re-listened to this book. Elantris is a place, like heaven, that's fallen; and the people, once glorious and happy, are miserable and live in pain. Those who become Elantrians wake up one morning and their bodies are taken by the shaod, a transformation that leaves them immortal but bald and discolored. Scrapes and bruises never heal and their plain lasts for all eternity.
It's a must read.
Earlier this year I watched the TV show "The Seeker" I noticed that the show credited "The Sword of Truth" book series by Terry Goodkind. I wanted to see how close the show held to the book. The books are far better.
The "Soul of The Fire" starts with Richard and Kahlan finally getting married. However, to save Richard's life, Kahlan releases the "Chimes" which, among other things, takes magic away.
I think that Zed's lying to Richard wasn't very creative. There were parts of the story that didn't seem to develop; however, I would have loved to have learned more. For example: What was Cara doing for 1/2 the story? Where is Addi? And what were the "Chimes" and how did the wizard Anders do to control them?
Oh-well, perhaps these are answered in future books.
