I completely loved this book. I bought it one summer on the way up to the cottage for a weekend, and I
finished it that weekend. I'd read 100 pages per read, and I am not the kind of guy who sits and reads all day. Never before had I read the first two chapters of a book in a row. I just love how Goodkind gets into the characters' heads and tells you what they're thinking. Throughout reading this book, I got that feeling that you get when you finish a really amazing book, but I had it the whole time. It felt so good to read it after reading all the edgy crud that I was use to. It was like eating eggs and bacon for breakfast after eating only corn flakes for a week. Anyway, a damn fine book, probably about #2 on my list, next to Tolkien.

I just want to start off by saying that Terry Goodkind is remarkable, and captured my mind with this book. To this date I have only read Wizard's First Rule, and Im starting Stone Of Tears today. At first I read 5 pages, and I didn't think I would be able to get into it, but all of a sudden I was over a hundred pages in, and could hardly put it down. My boyfriend bought me the series, because his copies were in a different city, and thought I might enjoy them. WOW, was he right. The romance, the suspence, just the whole drama of it captures you and puts your right in with the charecters. I can't wait to find out what will become of Kahlan and Richard in the rest of the books, oh ya and good ole Zedd. Hope everyone else that gets the chance to read this book will enjoy it as much as I did. -Contessa

As much as I wanted to like this book I believe the charechters so boring and bland.There are no conflicts to the personality's between charechters at all,simply a good guy against evil. After having read such authors as John Marco and Raymond Feist this book can hardly compare to the complex charechters those authors created.
I have heard so much praise for this book and I can not understand why for it is such a basic novel and I could predict events in the book rather easily such as who the great magician that the two charechters seek out.
If you are truely searching for an excellent read check out Raymond Feist,John Marco,or even Paul Kearney but leave this book on the shelf,thumbs down.

This book is by far the best book I have ever read and I have read many a book. When I first received this book from a friend and saw how long it was, i thought I would never finish it. I must admit, the first 100 pages were the hardest to get through but after that the book took on a life of it's own.

After that point I could not put this book down! The whole feel of the book was just utterly spectacular! I now need to read Stone of Tears-I am that anxious!

I absolutely loved Terry Goodkind's first book Wizard's First Rule. It truly climbed its way to the top as I read it. It was very enjoyable, however as I read on in to the next books, I saw perfect borrowed ideas from Robert Jordan, author of The Wheel of Time. I was appalled by the Sisters of the Light (Aes Sedai), and the sisters of the dark (Black Ajah), I would recommend the first book to all, but not the series.
