This isnt Atlas Shrugged, but it tries to be.

I don't know if I could take another 30 minute diatribe about the sanctity of life and the abhorrence of despotism. I mean holy crap this book was just painful. I desperately wanted it to be good, as an end to the series i started loving when "Wizards first rule" came out, however i was severely disappointed. Imagine John Galt's speech in atlas shrugged, if you listened to the audio book, the speech alone is almost 3 hours. Imagine that speech about the evils of socialism/communism but about the sanctity of freedom of choice and life as a whole. But imagine it happening over and over over and over and over. Imagine every single chance any character has to talk to another character being a tired tirade about these themes. Every. Single. Time. I cant stress enough how often this book goes away from telling a story, and CONCLUDING a story, to this method or proselytizing from the author. It hurts, its painful, it almost makes me wish i had never ever ever read any of the other books in the series. But "Wizards first rule" was great. Read it as its own story, then forget any other books in this series exist. I wish audible had a return program, i would gladly return this product and drink some magic potion that made me forget i has listened to it. Go read some Brandon Sanderson books. They're Grrrrrreat!

Wow.....More rhetoric?

I have been looking forward to the end of this series ever since I began reading The Sword of Truth series. After reading subsequent reviews which were quite negative I still chose to purchase this title. I am glad I finally got through the last book, I just wanted to know what happened in the end! But, it was very, very painful listening. I do not think I can handle much more of Terry Goodkind's brand of writing. The first few books were fabulous but when he started fixating on freedom and choice I got a little wary. As the series progresses it just gets worse with each book. There is less and less story and more and more about politics or rhetoric or whatever you want to call it. Really I am extremely fed up with long speeches that repeat the same ideologies over and over again! I am not ignorant, I got the message the first time and the second time and the third time and you get the idea. I am relieved to be done with it all. I will go back and read the first 3 or 4 books because they are the best, but I will NEVER read this one again! Download it, listen to it, and then be content that the series has finally come to a tortured end.
