Format: Paperback
Terry Goodkind's amazing fantasy is one of the best I have read. Being a lover of this genre I have read many other fantasy books such as `The Wheel of Time', `His Dark Materials', `Isavalta Trilogy' and many more. The Sword of truth epic does go on a little long and I want the books to finish soon so I can get some closure, however the sword of truth takes you into a new and existing world filled with magic and mythical creatures. It follows the lives of Richard and his true love Kahlan, they experience trials and tribulation not only in their love lives but in the fight with the Keeper and the dark sisters. These books are full of adventure, romance, war, magic, myth, blood and torture. The mixture of all these elements is what makes this a fantastic book and I also found it an easy read. Some people might say that this book is similar to the wheel of time books by Robert Jordan and may prefer them to this epic; however I disagree as I think Terry Goodkind makes the reader connect with the characters on a much deeper level than Jordan. Thumbs up for Terry Goodkind.

I remember the day I picked up Terrys first book, Wizards First Rule. This is a vibrant, epic tale of a scope to rival if not better Jordan and Tolkien. I felt a true connection to the main characters and literally did not put the thing down. The second and third books of the series are equally good. All are mature, and whether you are a fan of romance, mystery or violence you will not be disappointed.
I admire Terry Goodkind for his work - I feel he needs to bring this tale to an end with his 12th installment, to preserve what trully is an epic work of heroic fantasy.

Having read all 4 "Sword of Thruth" books makes clear that I've become a fan of Mr.Goodkind's epic on Richard, Kahlan and Zedd. Having enjoyed "Wizard's First Rule" and "Blood of the Fold" best, I was a bit disappointed by the seeming superficiality by which the several "betrayals" were worked out in "Temple of the Winds". Especially Kahlan's toward Richard and the way they worked it out was in my perception not up to Mr. Goodkind's standard, as displayed in other parts of the book and the series in general. Nonetheless I look forward to "Soul of Fire" and hope Mr. Goodkind doesn't put his inspirational "Sliph" to sleep, too soon.

I thought Robert Jordan was the best until I started on this series. 'Wizard' first rule' took a bit of perseverance (still brilliant though!). The series is one of those that you hope will NEVER end.

I have just finished reading "Wizard's First Rule" by Terry Goodkind. I thought that Robert Jordan was amazing till I read this! I finished the book in just two days - Jordan was a slog compared to this. The story sucked me in and I felt along with the characters. I marveled at Richard's power as the Seeker and agonised with him over all his trials. I didn't want the tale to end and I cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of the series - even though I will have to ration my reading time so that I can keep the story going for as long as possible . . .
