5.0 out of 5 stars Far more than fantasy/fiction
Reviewed in the United States on March 25, 2018
This is my favorite series out of the thousands of books I have read. Some quotes I like, trying to avoid spoilers:
“many people must be ruled to thrive. In their selfishness and greed, they see free people as their oppressors. They wish to have a leader who will cut the taller plants so the sun will reach them. They think no plant should be allowed to grow taller than the shortest, and in that way give light to all. They would rather be provided a guiding light, regardless of the fuel, than light a candle themselves.”
— It is sad to realize how applicable that concept is to our society – this series is far from pure fantasy/fiction.
“we will die with a sword in our hands, not chains on our wings”
— Another concept many should learn to embrace.
“Sense of purpose is more important by far than the truth”
— people believe what they think needs to be true or they have no purpose, this may be why you almost never change anyone’s opinion on politics, religion, etc.
This book, and others in the series are packed with insights into society and culture. All while maintaining a gripping sense of suspense and anticipation. I am constantly tempted to skip ahead to see what happens next in various storylines, but the current storyline is always just as captivating.
Terry Goodkind is truly a master of his art.
5.0 out of 5 stars A hero for modern times
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 23, 2017
Just decided to re-read and it’s as fresh as the first time round.
Truly as fantasy classic, which in my opinion rivals Game of Thrones, is a must for anyone who loves the field. Heroes, heroines, wizards and villains – what isn’t there to like?
The hero, Richard, is far from two dimensional and the love aspect is in keeping with true fantasy (not a romance), making the book relevant for both sexes.
Take my advice and give the series a go.
4.0 out of 5 stars This is the main thing I love about this book
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 16, 2016
Some passages in this book made me think about the philosophy this book was trying to portray. This is the main thing I love about this book. It makes you think about life, what it means to be good or evil, what meaning your actions and the reality behind the wizard’s first rule pdf book. The characters are not unique; they are your stereotypical hero (complete marysue), heroine and your local helpful wizard. I liked the introduction but fell in and out of reading as it did become boring. However, as soon as they introduce the main villain, I could not put it down. Darken Rahl is also your stereotypical villain (evil for the sake of being evil) but his traits are what draws the reader to want to learn more about him and his intentions. So if you feel a bit bored reading at first, please keep at it till you get to the first scene with Darken Rahl. It becomes so much more thereafter.
