"A complex epic fantasy that crackles with vigor and magical derring-do." (Publishers Weekly)
"Buck Schirner is an adept reader, expert at rendering this vast, glittering tapestry of a world." (Library Journal)
The narrator for the second book could only do two accents. This one was significantly better, but still didn't really bring the range that I would have hoped for to these books, which are so rich with characters and languages.
I've read a lot of books by a lot of great authors but I've never read any fiction so engrossing and utterly perfect in timeline and detail. Just when you think you've completed and understood the puzzle, Mr. Goodkind hands you another piece and you realize you weren't even close. And yet it all fits together perfectly.
The narrator was the worst yet in the series, and Tobias Brogan was a major letdown as a character. Some cool moments for sure, but Terry Goodkind has done much better.
Passion rules reason, for better or worse the Third Wizards Rule is the lesson learnt in Blood of the Fold. This time Kahlan, Richard and their allies must fight the Emperor Jagang's Imperial Order and the Blood of the Fold, as well as Mistwriths and Sister's of the Dark to prevent the New World been conquered and ruled over for a thousand years by Jagang from the Palace of the Prophets. Another brilliant masterpiece in The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. The narration performance from Buck Schimer is good but a little to monotonous at times, still well worth the money to listen to the book.
I can't really say, since I have not read any of the print version. I enjoy listening to stories instead of reading them. I don't have time to read book as I am always on the road.
Zedd is so funny. I like him alot.
I couldn't tell the who was who. His voice really didn't make much difference when changing from one person to another. I still perferred Sam Tsoutsouvas. He really made a difference.
no. I had to go back a couple of time in order to know who was who talking. I had to put it down alot of times.
In overall, I still enjoyed the story line. Will go on to book 4 now!
