I was devistated when I started book 2 in this series and Sam Tsoutsouvas was replaced by Jim Bond as the narrator. I can't stand how Bond gives everybody with magic the voice of a simpleton and somehow makes Richard sound like Superman from an old cartoon show. He has done no better with book 7 and book 8. At least Bond can pronounce Kahlan correctly (ref: Book 4 narrative disaster). Can I honestly endure another book with Jim Bond narration to get back to Sam in book 10? Maybe I could, if the series it's self was not spinning out of control into garbage.
As for Terry Goodkind and this series, I have had enough. I can not stand the fact that 50% of this book is a pile of repeated social lecture and babble. I literally stopped countless times to cry out in frustration as Richard goes ON AND ON AND ON AND ON...blah blah blah blah blah. It's horrible. The story is also completely predictable and nothing gets accomplished. So I was just counting pages waiting for Kahlan to try to kill herself to save Richard just like every other book. It's pretty pathetic writing in my opinion and Goodkind is just cashing in on the first books as we're all compelled to see how it ends. Don't start this book expecting any real progress in the series. You start and finish in the same place. When the story does move it goes in circles and is frequently blocked by endless babble...kind of like this review. I've said enough.

Best thing about this was the great side plots woven in to the main Richard plot. Lots of philosophizing which can be a bit mind numbing at times, but it was gripping as most of these books.
