Ok, so this trilogy of books just ticks me off. Three books, and barely a plot. Richard and Nicci spend pages giving monologues on the evils of the "empire"...pages. People don't talk like that. And honestly, it is obvious that Mr Goodkind had a point to make about society and this was where he was going to do it. Most of the time, he's railing against religious fanaticism like what drove those men to perpetrate 9/11, but sometimes it feels like he's railing against Democrats and their social welfare policies. Either way, there's not enough action, not enough plot, and ultimately, not enough of a satifying ending. He ties up all the loose ends in such a way that you feel insulted for having read all 700-800 pages of this trilogy, and the ultimate solution comes straight out of left field. Glad I borrowed these books, because I would be mad if I owned them.

He's written good stuff in the past. I think it's probably time to let Richard and Kahlen live in peace and try his hand at something new. Just my opinion.
