If you know up front that the Richard,Kahlan, and the usual cast are not the main characters in "The PIllars of Creation" then the story is not dissapointing. They serve as the background story for most of the book until the last several chapters. This book centers around 2 other offspring of Darken Rahl, Jennsen and Oba. Rather then distracting from the series, these new characters expand and inrich the story. It starts off a liitle slow but worth listening to the end.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I think anyone that really enjoys a robotic style voice with improper inflections would really enjoy listening to this book.
What did you like best about this story?
Due to the narrator I liked the story being over best.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Bond?
I think Stephen Hawkings could have read this book for us and sounded less mechanical than Jim Bond did. However, if I could have my way in the matter I would have cast almost any of the other narrators from this series...preferably Sam Tsoutsouvas, but Buck Schirner or John Kenneth would also have made it much better.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Pillars of Creation?
The scenes where Jim Bond is reading are the ones I would have cut...sadly that is the whole book.
Any additional comments?
Please Audible, I'm begging here, as a fan of audio books (many different genres) and a fan of Goodkind, please re-do the books narrated by Jim Bond, the man has no business narrating any books, but especially this series! I love the series, have read them all and was so looking forward to hearing them read, but it is more a torture, having to struggle through listening to Bond, than anything resembling a relaxing time listening to a beloved series.

This series has been gripping and adictive for me so far, but I did not enjoy this book. I struggled through it so that I could move on to the next one. Very little of the main characters. The best advice I can give is to not keep wondering when Richard will turn up, as I did, as it is not until near the end..

I liked the new characters but was disappointed it didn't have more of Richard. Roll on the next book!

To be honest, I was expecting much worse when I read certain articles about TPoC and Book 8 being terrible, it really wasn't bad. The storyline was quite enjoyable and was a bit of a throwback to Wizard's First Rule in that everything felt new again. There was an incredible amount of filler though, waaaay too much detail and repetition in describing thoughts and surroundings. All in all, by not paying attention through filler and loving Jim Bond's performance, I enjoyed this book.
Not only was the book great, but this performance was the best of the series so far. 100% recommend this version.
