    Terry Goodkind's Influences

    Some 15 years or so after first reading it, I've revisited Tad Williams' Memory, Sorrow, Thorn* series, and after finishing the first volume I came away thinking that Williams may have been an influence on Terry Goodkind. I'm sure that he has influenced many authors, of course, but it got me...

    Terry Goodkind's Warheart

    This is his concluding novel in the series. I think the last one I read was Confessor so not sure what I've missed. Given it's the last in the series it is a must, I think. I really liked the series bar one book which was painstakingly slow. The conclusion should be good. I hope. I may wait...

    Terry Goodkind?

    I have noticed that Terry Goodkind is not in the list of authors. I wonder if anybody has read his Sword of Truth series? I found it difficult going at times.Mostly due to the range of violence in every book.However,I did persevere to the end,while my sister stopped midway during the last book...

    Terry Goodkind?

    I noticed there is no Terry Goodkind in the Author's section. Why is that? As I do not speak often about fantasy books in my personal life, I ask you all. How is he received by fans of fantasy? I like his early work, however, it seems that it has really fell off in recent years. Just...

    Morality in Goodkind's Wizard's First Rule

    SPOILERS! I did - mostly - enjoy the book Wizard's First Rule. I thought for the most part the storytelling was very effective. However, it's left a really bad after taste with regards to the morality of the characters. Now, I don't mind being challenged on issues of morality - heck, I...

    Review: Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind

    This wasn't a book I'd normally want to read. I've seen too many online discussions dismissing Goodkind as a writer. And after reading about the "evil chicken scene" ... well, let's just say I kept Wizard's First Rule at the bottom of my reading pile. I tried flicking through it a while ago...

    Is Terry Goodkind any good?

    Looking to start a new series after The Book of the New Sun, it's either between The Malazan Book of the Fallen by Erikson or The Sword of Truth by Goodkind So, chrons, what would be the wiser choice Is there a reason Goodkind doesn't have his own sub forum? Is he a poor writer?

    Recommended reading for fan of Terry Goodkind/Jim Butcher

    Unlike most people in this site I do actually love Terry Goodkind and his work. Richard is a fantastic character to follow, and it is a very enjoyable read, if although, it does drag late into the series. I also really enjoy Jim Butcher and his novels. Anything that will be similar to these two...

    Terry Goodkind TV Series

    I have just found out that 'Legend of the Seeker' starts on the Sci-fi Channel on Thursday at 8 p.m. I managed to struggle through all the books but found it to be one of the worst fantasy series I have ever read, should I even bother watching the series? All the reviews I have read about...

    Sword of Truth series (Terry Goodkind)

    Well, this is my first thread so if its crap, my apologies. I first discovered these books by my mum and uncle, they were ranting and raving that these books were being made into a TV series and showed me the trailer for it. And i was like "Oh wow! Fantasy love/adventure story!" and started...

    Terry Goodkind Sword Of Truth/ Good Or Bad?

    I had been under the impression that this was quit a popular series amongst fantasy readers. Did I miss something? Has the series of books gone downhill?

    Goodkind S&M question

    I'm currently reading the Wizard's first Rule, wanted to see what all the fuss is about ( mostly negative fuss). I'm reading the S&M section with Richard and the Mord-Sith. Question: Are there more such segments in the following books?

    The New Terry Goodkind Inquest

    Looking for another book, I came across the Sword of Truth’ series, so I couldn’t resist the temptation to share with all of you this little bit of what might be expected after those long 11 books. Descending into darkness, about to be overwhelmed by evil, those people still free are...

    Terry Goodkind

    My favourite fantasy authors are: Feist, Gemmell, Martin, Jordan, Tolkien, Weis & Hickman and finally Brooks. I liked the assassin series by Hobb but not the Liveship books which have put me off her. My question is, how does Terry Goodkind compare? I've run out of books by the other authors...

    Hey... the new and LAST Sword of truth novel comes out in August as you may already know, in preparation I was rereading the whole series, but I find that I have forgotten what the Wizard's rules are... I can remember a couple of them, but I am wondering if anyone remembers them all. One is...

    Terry Goodkind

    First of all I must apologize to the fans, what I want to discuss might not be to your liking. Ok, now that is done... I am a real devotee to his Sword of Truth series, have read all the books that came out so far and must say (and here it goes), has he gotten worse after Faith of the Fallen...
