Well, two friends óf mine have read it already and it seems the good Hobbit's hunch was right. Nothing special is basically what they utter. Too much stuff they've seen before. Boring in the first half, much better in the second half. One of them would read the sequel, the other wouldn't.
Just an impression. It has certainly lowered my expectations a bit, knowing their tastes.

...and for my next trick, I will read books by just passing my hand over them lightly, so that I don't actually have to read them! http://www.sffworld.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Thank you Mith - as ever, an opinion is an opinion and what is one person's Goodkind is another person's Jordan (or something like that!) but it's good to hear other's impressions - that's what we're here for, after all.
Actually, I might just give this one a proper try...just to check first impressions... (climbs off the proverbial fence..)
