Re: Anyone read Terry Goodkind?

The best and worst thing about Goodkind is that he will describe things that happened in previous books a lot. On the one hand, it helps you to remember things you may have read 4 years ago, as well as making each novel work as a stand-alone story (try doing that with Wheel of Time book). On the other, it can be really annoying if you do remember those things, especially if they are very basic. How many times must I read about how Richard and Kahlan met?

Yeah he is good that way.

I was way confused when I read one of those Weel of Time books. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Anyone read Terry Goodkind?

Which one did you read? Did you start with one of the books in the middle of the story? If so, no wonder you were confused. You really do have to them in order.

Ah, book number 7 I believe. Yeah, you missed a lot. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

That was actually one of the better books of the series.

Re: Anyone read Terry Goodkind?

There are many great books in the Wheel of Time- series , all in all a marvellous fantasy-saga! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] - but as others have mentioned here : the story must be read from the beginning ( book 1 : "Eye of the World" ) for it to make the most sense.

It is after all one waylong fascinating epic story broken into 10 ( so far ) parts ( books ) and with a few more to come. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Happy reading - enjoy! [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Anyone read Terry Goodkind?

what are you doing starting with book 7, RW? lol [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] When I see a book that looks nice, I make sure it isn't the middle book of a series. If it is, I buy all the previous books first. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
