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?

there's a lot of rape in the follwing books. and a kid having her teeth kicked in and so on. (tho that could be the first one i can't remember) but not bondage s and m exactly.
but general sexual violence? yes. a LOT. it's why i stopped reading them

Well Richard is really annoying I have to say, so in this segment I do not particularly mind what is coming to him. I was wondering if there were more such segments with the Mord-Sith in particular.

The mordsith will be around quite a bit in the following books. Can't really say how or why without lots of spoilers.

I stopped becasue I thought they were rubbish....

Glad I'm not the only one who had that reaction. I have run into people who are passionate devotees, however. You just never know.

Regards,

Jim

I thought, honestly, that Goodkind's books moved that fastest when there were the violent sex scenes. Like his writing then was less terrible. Which is sort of creepy...and makes you wonder why he really likes to write them...

There are lots of sex scenes in this series - unfortunately most of them are rape/forced related - which I personally despise.
That being said, I really love Wizard's First Rule - it's a good stand-alone book in the series and I would have been content to just read it and none of the others. But...I read Stone of Tears, Temple of the Winds, Blood of the Fold, and so forth for six books or so and finally "woke up" and realized I was wasting valuable time off my life. :)

Sort of like a Time-Life series, huh?? "The Never-ending Story".
