Sword of Truth #15. Never in my life have I been as obsessed and frustrated with a series. To this day it is the only series that has ever caused me to throw a book. The story is amazing and well written. It sucks you in until you feel like you’re a part of it. The problem is Richard Rahl’s attitude. Around book 4 it starts and by book 6 it’s very well formed. He very much has the “I’m the smartest person in the world and you are always wrong” attitude. He gets extremely preachy about things until you feel like not only is the character trying to get his audience to believe him, but that Goodkind is trying to get you, the reader, to believe them as well. If it wasn’t for the story, I would have stopped reading this series for this reason a long time ago. According to Goodkind this is the last in the Sword of Truth series… ever… we’ll see, but I hope it is. Though I would really like a Law of Nines sequel and series that eventually connects to Richard and Kahlan’s world even if it’s the future and they are dead. I’d like to see how they end up and how the world has changed, plus I really liked the Law of Nines book and want to just generally know what happens next. I love this series, but if you decide to read it plan on being very frustrated.
