Enough is ENOUGH!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. I have become increasingly frustrated by Goodkind’s need to force his moralistic opinions down his reader’s throats. It was not bad at all in the early books. But in each successive story the preaching has gotten worse and worse – to where in this book one of his characters is spouting some moralistic monologue or other almost constantly! It has gotten to the point where the story lines are getting lost in all the moralistic chatter. The length of the book could have easily been half of what it is – with no lose in the actual story line. What a shame!

Oh Yes – I actually liked the story – what there was of it.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I need to finish ‘The New Watch’, read several stories by Mercedes Lackey I bought and have pending, or the 1st book in the Safehold series by David Weber (LOVE his Honor Harrington series, and hope this is as similar as it seems). Just finished 'The Book of Life' by Deborah Harkness. I really enjoyed that one.

What does Sam Tsoutsouvas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like Sam’s voice. And I like the passion he brings to the story when intensity is called for. He also does a fairly good job of giving unique voices to most of the main characters.

Did Severed Souls inspire you to do anything?

Stop listening.

Any additional comments?

This will probably be my last Goodkind book. I can't stand any more moralistic preaching. It really ruins the stories for me.

Worst Book in the Series

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A faster pace, By far the pace is to slow! Story line should of been better. It read like Terry is trying to get 10 more books out of this series

Has Severed Souls turned you off from other books in this genre?


How could the performance have been better?

The Story line could and should of been concluded in this 3rd book.
