I always get unabridged versions of my books, however, if ever there was a time for an abridged version the Chainfire Trilogy is it!!! OMG....some sections just go on and on! Don't get me wrong I love these books but why 3 books were needed for the Chainfire piece, I have no idea!! Whew...I'm glad I'm finally done with them!!!

While at times, Goodkind's writing can be drawn out and lengthy, the message he ultimately delivers in this final Sword of Truth novel is life-changing. The struggles that Richard, Kahlan, and all their friends overcome is simply stunning, and I cannot get these characters out of my head. After reading this series, every other book I touched seemed to be either frivolous or pointless (which is not always bad), but Goodkind's work really means something to the human life and spirit. I'm not a religious person or anything, but the simple messages of truth, kindness, and freedom are so moving in the summation of this whole series.
If you are looking for a group of people that will change your life completely, I highly suggest getting to know Richard and Kahlan. These two are my literary heros. Bear with Goodkind's lengthy and often repeated descriptions, and discover an incredible world.

If you've read or listened to the starting books you'll know you want to read some more, personally I found the reading better than the listening, but these are still a great listen if you don't have the hours and hours to spend reading the books

the narrator is the best if the bunch. hopefully they will keep using him in forthcoming books!
I can't be objective at all, so I will just say that even though there were some terrible books in the mix, this series has been amazing. The first book, narrated by Sam also, kicked it off brilliantly and this trilogy really brought it home so well. Thankfully Part 2 & 3 were narrated by Sam as well. His emotional range and absolute mastery of narration made it everything it had to be.
Thorough enjoyed this book. Back to the best. Equals any of the series so far :)
