This book is a worthy alchemical approach to something Goodkind seems resentful about. Its semiotic introduction of a character who allegedly 'thinks' with the help of the Dark one is far fetched and lacks character development with any kind of enlightenment present. And it doesn't really evolve any new ideas other than some people in his world are less gifted than others.

Pillars of Creation is definitely a good book. But the thing is, it is actually worse than previous books, which are masterpieces. Pillars of Creation is just not dynamic.

I started reading Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth by a recommendation of a friend. At first I wasn't quite sure what I would think of the book. I went to the library and amazing enough, they had just received it not too long ago, the first book of the series, Wizard's First Rule. First page of the first book had gotten me hooked and ever since then I had been pouring over all his books the moment I can buy it. When I had gotten to Pillars of Creation, it was not what I had expected. I do not mind having subcharacters inside the book, but I found myself getting bored quite easily with it. A rare thing when reading Terry's material. I kept on checking to see how close I was to the ending in hopes of finishing it. I was even tempted to just stop right there and then and start the other. But, I hate quitting and reading the next book would leave holes in parts of the story I know I wouldn't understand. It was not his best work in my opinion. I'm sure others would greatly disagree with me. I just could not read it too much and it took me three times as long to read the book as the others. All his other books are great, apart from severe mushyness, and addictive as ever. I hope that is the last book of his that I read that becomes disappointing and boring.
