Not a bad story, but way too long and repetitive

What can I say, I really should have read the other reviews and taken a bit more notice. I read the preceding books in the series when they were first released, and I must say and advantage to printed books is that you can skip the bits that are repetitive and dull. I think that the three final books in this series could easily have been compressed into a single story.

Although I have memories of the early books being very good, the final "trilogy" set have been something of a disappointment. The characters are dreadfully one-dimensional, and Richard himself has become unbelievable, overly righteous and at times downright dull. And was it just me, or were all the "bad" characters fat and/or ugly brutes, and the "good" characters slim and attractive intellectuals? Please!

I also found the switch in narrators disconcerting - the narrator who did the first book was better, but by then I was sucked into the "but I just need to see how it ends" trap.

Phantom Review

Finally finished reading Phantom. This book was the dullest of the series, it seemed like TG dragged it out too long, especially with Kahlan's storyline. Now off to finish the series with Confessor. Hopefully this one will be as good as the beginning of the series.
