sword of truth books are great. i love the way goodkind writes.
I love this series!! This book is about Richards vision of how the future will play out and his decision not to fight The Order. Everyone is upset and confused at his decision but he stays the course. Richard and Kahlan are separated and Richard is taken to a town which is run by The Order. Its a dirty terrible town where no one is allowed to get ahead and everything is rationed out. They also dont realize that Richard is THE Richard, they think him to be a regular wood worker. I dont want to spoil it, but this has been my fav so far in this series and Ive already read the next few. I love the characters and I love this series!
Full of rape, torture, murder, blood and guts (literally). NOT good books, but very engaging. I was unable to put them down, and have lost a lot of sleep during the two months it took me to read the entire series. I cringed, I cried, I gasped, I had nightmares. I can't imagine what kind of twisted mind thinks up this kind of stuff.
In regards to the tv series based on these books DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. THEY ARE FULL OF CRAP THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BOOKS. I had to force myself to at least give them a chance, but was so pissed off within the first few minutes of the very first episode. I don't understand why the author had to butcher the story.
Anyway, read at your own discression. Not for kids or teenagers (or even a lot of adults :)
