With winter des
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. Jen...more
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 nove...more
Ici, il arrive à raconter une histoire sur 500 pages (sur 600) sans qu'on voit les personnages principaux de la série !
Certes, ils sont mentionnés ici et là, surtout comme épouvantails, du point de vue des sujets de Jagang. Mais ils n'interviennent que vers la fin.
Le volume se concentre sur l'histoire de d...more
SUMMARY: Sequel to the New York Times bestselling Faith of the Fallen New York Times bestselling author Terry Goodkind has created his most lavish adventure yet. Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, a young woman named Lauren seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin. With winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, Richard Rahl and his wife Ka...more
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 r...more
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 app...more
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 book...not for me anyway.
I stopped reading after the first chapter with Oba and...more
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...more
Oba singlehandedly ruined this book for me. Well, that's a lie. The fact that a best-selling, expensive, and marketed book had the nerve to comma splice sentences several hundred times also added to my frustration. But it was mostly Oba and his "well, wasn't that something." Oba was unnecessarily crude and violent throughout the entire book, and I wish some...more
Erano inutili perchè 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 con...more
Within the first few pages, I was dying to know how this book would end. Which is not to say that it couldn't keep me interested. It was one of the bes...more
For the last 6 (or maybe 7) books, you've spent your time learning about and loving Richard, Kahlan, Zedd, Cara, and a great many other people. Well, they aren't in this story until the very end. You spend your time primarily learning about two new characters that you largely care nothing about. After the way the 6th book ends, all you want to do is get b...more
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 a...more
that better not be darken rahl whispering to them to surrender. I mean seriously, how many times can he come back from the dead? Especially after being magically banished the last time.
Oh man, the anger in Jagang's voice talking about Kahlan makes this whole book worth it. He really got pissed off by the entirety of the last book. Haha!
The first half of the book can be skimmed really.
Ok, finished up. This is a solid book. Worth reading most of if you've made it this far. Do...more
