Wizards First Rule by Terry Goodkind
My brother bought me Wizards First Rule for my birthday and it took me a week to read it! I couldn't put it down! Excellent book!

I would just like to say that I have spent the last two years (I know it's not a long time. I'm sorry) reading numerous books by Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Terry Brooks, Michael Moorcock, and many other fantasy authors. I was aware of Terry Goodkind's series for a long time before I finally decided to read Wizard's First Rule. As a matter of fact I just finished it a week ago. Now I feel like I can safely say that this is one of the absolute best books I have ever read in my life. I was surprised by the originality of it, which frankly I wasn't expecting. The storyline, characters, plot, and complex subplots were done at a level that makes Terry Goodkind nothing less than a master of his craft.

Hello fellow readers. I'm happen to be 13 years old and I was given this book as a gift, a gift I didn't want because I'm not a big reader, but when I picked up this book I couldn't put it down. I have never really read a novel before so this is my first and I am currently on the second book of the Sword of Truth series (Stone of Tears). To all those people who "threw the book across the room" better get off there lazy buts and walk across the room and pick it bake up and actually read the book, and I mean the hole book. You can't just read 2 chapters and put it down and come hear and make nasty comments about it. YOU HAVE TO READ IT FIRST, YOU KNOW, WITH YOUR EYE NOT YOU ASS!

This is only the first book of Terry
Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" series but in my
opinion it was the best so far. "Wizards
First Rule" was a perfect beginning to the
series. It desribed each character's thoughts
and feelings as in every one of his books.

About wizards first rule it is time people for the idiots who judge a book by reading the first 11 odd chapters to grow up and finish reading the damn things if they start them. All the people that complain about how the plot is un-oringal need to look and the last half a little bit harder, for I have not heard of many books in which their main charters are captured, torchured into submission, then they wake up instead of being saved and are released with what ever they want because all their friends shall see them as enemys. Yes one can say this is rather twisted in some of the content but it helps out in detailing the Antagonist's madness which helps in characterazation. Of course the book has somewhat of a happy ending, though but it is really and truly bittersweet. There are many things which are you wouldn't quite exspect if you actuly read the whole thing in the right order, concerning betray and what not. For Goodkind could of had Richard find his brother dead and the box gone, after Rahl armies had "out of nowhere killed them all" but didn't and left a false hope to it instead and the whole betral issue.
