Best start to any Fantasy series of the past 30 years EASY...

The Sword Truth Boxed Books

The Sword Truth Boxed Books

The sword of truth is an incredable serie that is very disputed about. there are mainly two schools of thought: this is a great, original series that is worth reading many times; or, this is a very overused and cliched idea and nothing really worth reading.

I think that it is the first, and not the latter. I basiclly read only one gnerea of books and that is the sci-fi/fantasy novels and more the fantasy. I just soak up all the fantasy books I can get my hands on. That being said I know original ideas when I see them in my opion this is a orininal idea.

this is the story about a man named Richard which is funny becuase he is the only person is the book who has a normal name. anyways Richard turns out to be the seeker which is this guy who gets the sword of truth, which has magical powers, and is saposed to find answers to questions the seeker wishes to know, hence the sword of TRUTH.

throught the book he is trying to thwart the bad guy Darken rhal because rhal is tring to access this ancient magic over life itself.

the second book and the third have equally bad things that Richard Kahlen and all the other charachters have to overcome.

anyways wizards firt rule is a great begining to a great fantasy series. and I would give this series ten stars if i could the first book i read so fast and bumbed it up to my favortite book and then i read the second and third books and they were even better.

this is a great series and i would recomended it to anyone with the exception of a younger person mabye ten or eleven or younger.

I say this not because it is especially difficult to read. I am 14 and me and some of my SAME AGE FRIENDS loved it. i say that because this is a true to life book one of the reasons i loved it. when i say true to life i mean there was everyting from tortureing and sadeism to lesbian lovers to rape all descriped in more length than an average fight sence.

like i said, i enjoyed it because i thought that it was more true to life and not watered down when most books are. this is not to say don't read this book all the stuff mentioned above is not the main part of the book. one of the main themes throughout the book is a love between Richard and Khalen. and friendships aswell.

this is a great begining and i can't wait to get the fourth book and start it.

    For a while now I have been looking for a new SFF series that will catch my interest and the Sword of Truth series is what I have been searching for. Any lover of SFF will love this trilogy.

    I read through the first trilogy in 2 days, I just could not put it down. Thank goodness for overnight delievery on the rest of the series. The latter part of the series does tend to slip a bit and it has taken me months to get through the rest, but these don't miss.

    Each novel is has its own story line, so you feel a since of closure at the end of each novel. So read as many, or as few, of the series that you want!

  2. Well, in general it's a good series. I read a lot of fantasy and SF books, and these are special books that can be read over and over. Terry Goodkind kept the action going through the first 5 books.

    I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of these books and would recommend them to any ADULT. But, while these books show many of life's most estimable traits, there remains a darker vision. The books mirror a stark reality which, in my opinion, seem too vivid for younger minds. Between the bloodshed and villainy there also lie scenes of rape and sado-masochism. While not EXPLICIT, I would not allow my nephew of ten years to read it until he's much more matured. Just my two cents, enjoy the books.

    Writing is an interesting topic of debate. While we all agree that story is paramount, there are several different viewpoints on an author's prose. While some feel prose is not so important, others believe that it is essential for a good story, and for those of you who feel that way, I am sorry to say that Terry Goodkind will be a slight disappointment; his writing is very safe, and he does not extend beyond the vocabulary of a high school student. Furthermore, many of his sentences are simply nonsensical and poorly worded. This becomes increasingly more prevalent as the series progresses, and hits its highpoint just before the final trilogy (where, thankfully, Goodkind gets his act together by creating a gripping finale with wonderful description that will invoke the deepest of emotions). If this is a problem for you, do not read this series, it will only upset you.

    However, I have always been adamant that story matters more than presentation. Not too much, mind you, but as long as the sentences are structured, get a point across, and are not senseless drivel, the storyline is oh so more important, and it is here that Goodkind trumps other authors. His story is rich and it progresses well over the 11 novels, despite a slight road bump around Faith of the Fallen. However, it can be argued that each book is relevant, and I would definitely agree with anyone who said so. Each one contributes to the story as a whole, just as a great story should do, and just where other authors (Robert Jordan, with his concentration only on details) have failed. Story first, details second. Even a story with minimal details but a great story will best a story with vivid imagery but no story.

    Basically, if you are looking for a great read, these books are for you. But if you are one of those people who complains about lack of prose, go read a lousy Jordan novel and leave the real fantasy fans alone to real fantasy business.

    Great story, so-so prose.

    Rated R for the plentiful rape scenes and crude humor and violence.

  5. I'm still on the first book of the set and there are just no words for how good it is. The story, characters, and plot are all so beautifully detailed that I just can't seem to stop reading. Seems I'm going to have to make more space for the rest of the series. Just some advice. If you like books, reading, or have ever read anything in your life buy this set now.

  6. This epic traps you into a world of magic and conflict. When you finally think that nothing else worse could happen to the main characters, something does. Being hopelessly lost in the struggle, Richard Cypher (or later Richard Rahl), Kahlan Amnell, and his freinds amazingly find answers to solutions and become the true hope for all when an even greater threat emerges. I recomend this series to anyone.

    I had never read fantasy before, but was interested in it. A friend recommended this set to me and by the time the first chapter had ended I was hooked! I absolutely love the series. The character development is wonderful and thorough. Yes the characters are a bit cliche, but in no way does that hinder the story or make you less interested in them. Some people I have talked to have a hard time finishing the first book because of some sexually preverse scenes near the end. I would not suggest skipping this part because I feel it gives a lot of insight into the person Richard becomes. So if that sort of thing is disturbing to you, I would either try to get through it or perhaps find another fantasy series.
