    "Ah......this book is soooooo boring"

    Most of this book is minus the main characters and those parts are sooo boring and tend to repeat. i found my mind drifting during those parts. I recommend skipping those parts. This book is just ok. Not his best - just ok.

    "In the end The Seeker of Truth does it again!!!"
    Would you listen to Soul of the Fire again? Why?

    Yes, I would skip the middle though!!!


    What other book might you compare Soul of the Fire to and why?

    It stands alone.


    What does Buck Schirner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You can feel the hurt in Richard at times.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Te Vote!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't know where they were going with the whole minster of defense story but it came out in the end. Everything comes out in the end and the last part is awesome,I was on the edge of my seat when Kahlan was done for and Richard was their but not their for her! I just wanted to say its Kalhan. In all the other you could séance her presence what's is going on!!! So I'm starting the 6th book!!

    "A great read"

    First of all Buck Schirner did a fantastic job reading this. His female voices leave a little to be desired but to be fair he has a very deep voice so I am going to forgive him on that. Goodkind spends a long time on characters you don't actually care about, but they are an essential part of the story so stick through it. I wish there was one solid consistent reader across this series, but Buck did a fantastic job and learned how to pronounce the names!!!

    "Well, very good except the ending."

    Definitely the least satisfying ending of the series so far. It's almost like he got tired and just ended it. odd......

    Story
    "Gets good at the end"

    Buck Schirner returns -- gag! He's no Sam Tsoutsouvas, but very few are. The Anderith portions are slow in the beginning, but the ending is where the money is. Of the first five books in this series, only Blood of the Fold (another Buck Schirner title) is worse.
