    1. A slap in the face after the grand and epic nature of the previous book I found this book frankly, boring When Goodkind broke from his main characters in Soul of the fire, I found it a refreshing change and necessary to the story But these new characters are not nearly as interesting For one, I understand how it is Richard can have a bunch of siblings he doesn t know about, but that doesn t make this an interesting plot point I couldn t find myself caring very much, and the addition of the gimmi [...]


    2. I don t think I m going to write out a full review for this one, sorry Every time I sit down to go over my notes and figure out what to say, I just find myself looking for something else to do So, rather than write out my semi professional ish review format, I just posted my notes that I took while reading below I tend to use profanity in my notes, and much less professional ways of saying things, than I do in my actual reviews, so be warned about that I may also repeat things multiple times, a [...]


    3. This book is the perfect example that once you become really popular and wealthy, your editor actually stops reading your stuff because he s too busy sniffing powders off surgically enhanced anatomy of certain people of questionable employment on a yacht somewhere, enjoying the handsome percentage cut your works brings in All that money means your writing must be good, right Terry Goodkind pushes the limits of this statement to a special new high He takes it to such an extreme that even Robert J [...]


    4. This volume is a breath of fresh air in the series The pulpit speeches are absent, the action is strong, and we have a new interesting main character introduced, along with a few minor ones such as Tom Plus a very interesting practical reason behind Darken Rahl s practice of killing all of his ungifted children comes to light Some people have complained that Richard and Kahlan aren t main characters in this book, and if you think that, you aren t paying attention Richard is the bogeyman Jensen s [...]


    5. 1.5 stars I can sense the end of my relationship with Goodkind coming with this phenomenal let down Easily the worst of the Sword of Truth series Only interesting aspect is the introduction of the concept of the holes in the world.


    6. By the end of this book I wanted to strangle Jennsen and her goat Truly Jennsen who Isn t this series about Richard and Kahlan Not in this book, which isn t just an outlier in this series, it feels like filler This is where I really felt Goodkind s clumsiness as a writer What You read six doorstopper tomes before this and didn t notice Not really Because I loved many of the characters, not just the two leads, but such secondary characters as Zedd, Nathan, Ann, Cara and Nicci, up to now I found m [...]


    7. Terry Goodkind is a superb author, and in my opinion, his Sword of Truth series is the best I have ever read So good, in fact, that I have read the entire series three times in a row, back to back, non stop This series is not for children The series covers many aspects of the dark side of humanity, in great detail, as the heroes try to overcome the evils in the world Goodkind is not afraid to show his readers just what evil really is, that is, most often, people who perform acts of evil feel jus [...]


    8. While for the bulk of this book I found it a constant struggle to care about the main characters, as always, it finished strong and picked up eventually.This book was a test in agitation and tolerance for me I not once cared for Jennsen I found her infuriatingly ignorant, and while that was a constant annoyance, I recognize the importance of her being that kind of character I could never attribute that as a fault to Goodkind he wrote this book as skillfully as ever he is just really good at crea [...]


    9. This book is sort of a departure from the main storyline of the Sword of Truth series It follows Richard s sister, Jensen, as she attempts to assassinate her brother, who she believes killed her mother and is now trying to kill her.This book is very interesting, because it only has Richard in it for about 25 pages, the rest is about Jensen and the people she meets on her journey This is a cool way to introduce a new character to a large series and give them enough time in the spotlight so that t [...]


    10. Although I really love the interaction of the main characters, Richard, Kahlen, Cara and Zedd, I also love reading about others in this world that revolve around the main characters This was an exceptional take on two different lives of Richards half siblings and how their up bringing affected their character and world view Compared to the previous books, this was a relatively short story It does not detract from the main story line what so ever In fact, it ends up adding a new character for fut [...]


    11. I have to stop with the series at this one After reading a few chapters, it was already getting excruciatingly painful to read The others didn t get like that until the end The suffering makes the ending that much exquisite, but I can t tolerate an entire book of it Plus Richard and Kahlan aren t the main characters What s up with that I can see wanting to get a different perspective, but not the entire bookt for me anyway I stopped reading after the first chapter with Oba and decided to check [...]


    12. Goodkind continues his downward spiral with this disaster of a novel.To start, this novel doesn t even focus on characters we ve met For some reason, Goodkind felt that it was necessary to introduce a completely new character Richard s half sister Jensen Oh, and don t forget her pet goat that she takes literally everywhere even while she s running for her life Jensen has nothing to do with the plot of the series up to this point, and she ends up being completely inconsequential in later novels, [...]


    13. Originally this series was a complex and interesting collection of literature I think the author needs to stop spending his newfound wealth on crack This was one of the WORST books I have ever read I cant help but feel like he was stealing lines from other authors such as Robert Jordan and George Martin.


    14. Pillars of creation was probably the most different of Goodkind s books that I ve read Different in this case is good, but not great The Wizard Rule posited in this book is Life is the Future, not the Past Works pretty well with the theme of this book I suppose, considering that Goodkind puts away Ubermensch Richard Rahl and UberWife Kahlen Amnell and instead focuses his pen around the relatively unremarkable, yet spunky young lass Jennsen Dagget Seriously We see Richard and Kahlen for approxima [...]


    15. I dug up an old review I wrote on for this in 2004, when I was 16 and had just finished reading it This book had a very evil feel to it The characters weren t as well defined as in the other books, or perhaps just not as appealing I thought Jennsen was quite determined to be stupid throughout her journeys, but her character was saved in the end The scene with Oba and the Mord sith is not one easily forgettable, it s enjoyable in the most sadistic of ways You definitely could not read this book a [...]


    16. Goodkind has surprise after surprise in this one It takes a while to figure how everything will play out, but there are plenty of action scenes and mysteries to worry about to not get too disappointed by the long wait Though there were a few moments that I wished I could read about my all time favorite characters, these all new characters did not disappoint at all The villain is such a fun, Koontz like read The plight of the main character is even better, because she is ignorant of her circumsta [...]

    18. Za malo pa cetvorka Ovaj covek zna da pise ali u neki delovima se toliko ponavlja i razlaci da je to cudo A najgluplja stvar u knjizi je jedna koza Dokle bre vise sa tom kozom ajde Inace svidja mi se ova postavka knjige koja mesa dobro i zlo da se ne zna ko je i sta je ko do kraja knjige mada se od sredine vec pomalo naslucuje ko bi tu mogao ko da bude


    19. Il passato pu insegnare attraverso l esperienza come fare le cose in futuro, portarci conforto con i bei ricordi ed insegnarci le fondamenta di quanto stato gi fatto Ma solo il futuro la vita Vivere nel passato vuol dire abbracciare ci che morto Vivere la vita a pieno ogni giorno significa creare qualcosa di nuovo ogni giorno Siamo esseri raziocinanti, dobbiamo usare il nostro intelletto e non la cieca devozione.Non so perch mi ostini ad andare avanti con questa saga che, ormai chiaro a tutti, n [...]



    20. Well, to say this book surprised me would be the understatement of the year When I cracked the spine of this baby, I fully expected to pick up where the sixth book had left me That would be with Richard and Kahlan in the Old World.Instead I found myself with a girl named Jennsen, and later on with a brute called Oba, about whom the previous books didn t breathe a word and who, if I may be honest, didn t interest me one bit in the beginning at least But this doesn t mean that the book didn t prov [...]


    21. Unlike the first six books of the series, Terry Goodkind decides to drift away from the perspective of major characters to instead focus on completely new characters that he has dreamed up Oba and Jennsen Two young adults no big surprise there forging their life and being entwined into the weave of Fate which sends them on their way through the pages of Goodkind s novel So, to make it abundantly clear, if you have your heart strings completely wrapped around Richard and Kahlan s decisions, then [...]


    22. Questo volume totalmente inutile Voglio dire, i due tre precedenti erano anche loro inutili, ma era un inutilit diversa.Erano inutili perch parlavano di storie piccole , facilmente condensabili e che sarebbe stato possibile riunire in un unico libro.I Rintocchi, il viaggio a sud tutto condensabile insieme al Tempio dei venti Comunque c erano delle storie.C erano Richard e Kahlan in lotta contro i Rintocchi per salvare la magia delle Terre Centrali c era Richard rapito e che riesce a conquistare [...]


    23. So, this is like that obligatory once a season episode of Doctor Who, which he s only in for, like, two scenes I won t pretend like I wasn t itching to finally reach a Kahlan Richard Cara scene and hadn t flicked through the book to make sure they were in it , but this book wasn t nearly as terrible as it could ve been.Liking it really hinges on liking Jennsen Or, god forbid, Oba didn t make you want to smash your head in Pillars of Creation kind of felt like a flip of the previous book Jennsen [...]


    24. The Sword of Truth book 7 takes a departure from the other books as the main characters are a unknown step sister and step brother of Richard Rahl.For me the most fascinating aspect of this book was that the characters were making logical decisions based on what they knew But anyone who has read any of the other books will know just how wrong they are Mr Goodkind weaves this story very well and leaves the reader thinking No no no most of the way through It s a page turner to be sure My only comp [...]


    25. I enjoyed this book the least out of the Sword of Truth Chainfire series, I couldn t wait to be done with it in order to get to the rest of the story I felt that although some of the characters were interesting they could have been developed quickly I didn t feel that an entire book completely void of Richard and Kahlan was necessary for us to learn to like dislike these characters I also felt at times even the individual paths of the characters were extremely slow to develop while the ending w [...]


    26. Many people who read this were annoyed that Richard, Kahlan, and the other major characters from previous volumes do not feature prominently at least not on screen in this one, which isn t so much a weakness of this book as evidence of the strength of those characters and their portrayal in books 1 through 6.Jenssen was an interesting and likable character although admittedly irritating at times , and it was kind of fun to see the world through the enemy s perspective I also enjoyed learning ab [...]


    27. The book introduces new characters which was interesting and the enemy ideas are presented in a way that you could almost sympathize But Goodkind seems to wander around a bit with the facts of previous books Jagang the dreamwalker who knows all should have known about what was happening in the old world and Richard using his magic to destroy a thousand men Why can t he then use it to destroy Jagangs entire army Doesn t make sense I anxiously read each book up to this point because I enjoyed the [...]


    28. This one is not quite as good as the rest I really think the author should have stayed with Richard Nice to know what other people think of Richard You can see how blind Jennsen really is Jennsen is a nice girl The journey she goes through is very intense She suffers a lot Her mother dies Sebastian befriends her who really isn t her friend He tells her half truths.Obo is very frightening He kills everybody he runs into He is one of the crazy sons of Darken Rahl He only cares for himself and abou [...]


    29. It took me longer to read this one because there was NO RICHARD KAHLAN CARA until the last parts of the book Two new characters, Jennsen and Oba were introduced, and I can t say I liked them, even a little bit Sorry Terry Minor spoiler It was interesting to read everything from the enemy s point of view but still I truly hate the Imperial Order and Jagang I wished he died in this book Oh and the part when the Order tried to attack Confessors Palace but failed That battle was INCREDIBLE Loved it [...]
