Confessor by Terry Goodkind(53 ratings)

This book was dry, repetitive and preachy. The long monologues by the main characters are unrealistic, especially toward the end. Most of the language used would not have come out of a common woods guide. It felt as if the author was tired of writing and just made the story line end. Bull neck, green eyes, read leather, so and so runs fingers through hair. If you\'ve made it this far through the series, you\'re a compulsive reader like me. This book could easily have lost 200 pages and still conveyed the same message.

I confess (really?) that I have not read the 11 books but rather listened to all of them on audio. Took quite a while. Finished. Wow! What a ride...

I have been reading the Sword of Truth series since I picked up a copy of Wizards First Rule in a 2nd hand shop many years ago. This introduction to the author seems quite a familiar one but then we are dealing with a first novel many of which end up this way. Anyway I was hooked and so here I find myself on the last book. I was quite emotional starting page 1. I'd deliberately not read the chainfire trilogy as they were published choosing instead to spread them out knowing the end was coming. By page 2 I was over all that and pounding along. Richard is still up to his neck in hot water, Kahlan is in even deeper and the whole world is still heading for a big fall. As always the solutions to the problems manifest in unforseen ways. Sometimes the solutions make things worse. By the end with 100 pages to go I was wonder how this was all going to be wrapped up. I was getting suspicious that this was going to lead into another follow-up set of books. But end it did. Was I happy? After 7-8000 pages of commitment, yes I was happy. We knew this was not going to end in some mega-battle but I didn't see the solution coming and then just smiled a big smile. I was very happy. Maybe the ending was not to everyones tastes but I liked it. Finally put the book down at 1am so it must have been good. Favourite supporting characters? Cara still rocks as does Nicki. Richard playing The Game of Life was worth the cover price alone. A good end to a pretty much amazing series. Loved them all and can't recommend them enough. And if you really can't be bothered with an 11 novel run then watch the TV show Legend of the Seeker (But don't try comparing them!)
