Is there anything you would change about this book?

Very very frustrating. I don't know what the author is thinking. For the last 3 books, he has changed the format and i'm just not enjoying them. His first 10 books were some of the best books i've ever read but the last three in the series are becoming more and more of a joke. Terry Goodkind does not wrap up the sub plot as he has done in each book in the beginning and this new format is very drawn out. This book worse than the last two. I think maybe he is just stretching the same story line out for another 10 books necessarily instead of actually finishing a story in each book and starting a new sub plot in the bigger story like in early in the series. Come Terry, get back to the format that has got you to this far.

What could Terry Goodkind have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

finished the sub story line like he does in the first 10 books

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

very slow and drawn out. Could have said the exactly same thing in a book half this size.

Do you think Severed Souls needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Unfortunately, because of the way Terry Goodkind is writing the new books, yes there needs to be a followup book. I getting tired of unfinished stories and don't think i'll be rushing to get the next book.

Any additional comments?

I hope the author actually takes note of the many similar comments about the way he is writing these days and goes back to his old format and providing a story that has a beggining, middle and END for each of his books
