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.
The story stops developing after a while, characters just stop learning facts. They just run from Richard Rahl, then they run for Richard Rahl. And only with appearence of Richard himself, storyline begins developing again.
Secondly, characters are less developed. Sure, the book is short (Stone of the Tears was twice longer) and there is simply not enough time for them to fully develop.
Thirdly, there is absolutely no intrigue. Goodkind's philosophy has completely developed in Faith of the Fallen and the story is completely predictable.
Lastly, Terry Goodkind is still obsessed with rape.
But, as I already said, Pillars of Creation is definitely a good book.
