I was not impressed with this story and am now unsure about purchasing or listening to anything else by Terry Goodkind.
I was not put off by the narration as several others seem to be, but I was put off by the story. I completely enjoy fantasy, but this stretched my gullibility. I'm not a fan of sado-masochism and, thus, that part of the story wasn't even remotely enjoyable for me. Unfortunately, the S&M is integral to the story.
As for the rest of the story, while somewhat enjoyable, I did think it somewhat disjointed and convoluted. I don't need a story to be linear to understand it, but I do like it to flow without having to fill in the blanks with long explanations.
If you like S&M fantasy, you will like this. If you don't, don't waste your time or money.
