5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Kevin J. O'coin on Dec 7 2008
Format: Hardcover
It seems that the bread and butter of the fantasy genre these days are terribly long-winded series of very little content. In this regard I think primarily of the Wheel of Time, but Goodkind's effort is not far behind. Don't get me wrong: the first books of this series were superlative -- I was hooked from the first words of Wizard's First Rule, and it only got better until the series reached it's most thrilling point with Temple of the Winds. Unfortunately, the excitement nearly plummeted after that, with The Pillars of Creation being by far the worst of any of the volumes; and because it featured so little of Kahlan and Richard, it could easily have been taken out of the series altogether with nothing lost. Basically, books 5-12 were terrible -- a grossly over-hyped waste of time and trees. Confessor dragged on and on for hundreds of pages with very little content, and the staple of Goodkind's narrative (i.e. Ayn Rand's parroted objectivist philosophy) was here in spades, especially in Richard's final monologue. And what was with the whole anti-church jab at the very end? I had suspected all along that Goodkind had had a bad Catholic upbringing or something..... My advice would be to read volumes 1-4 and hen just stop. It will be a lot less painful that way.

A very good read. Although I now realize from reading this book that Mr Goodkind's personal life philosophy reflected in this book differs considerably from mine so I won't be purchasing any more of his books whether through Amazon or otherwise. Your purchasing process was great as usual. Thanks very much

Format: Hardcover
I got sucked into this series when I read Wizards first rule so very long ago. I thought the first two books and Faith of the fallen were excellent. Almost good enough to be worth the time and money I spent on this series. Other than that, Goodkind has totally lost the plot. Its almost as if he hasn't read his past books as he spends page after page recapping the plot from past books and filling with more of his preaching about freedom and how evil the order is etc, etc. The characters have become increasingly two dimensional (but always painfully beautiful,) and the same general story arc is followed with Richard losing Kahlan and his power and struggling till the last 10 pages when he figures it all out and it turns out the big bad wasn't so bad after all. We all would have seen it coming too if only we had remembered the Wizards rule of the day. Extremely monotonous, plodding writing style where if you didn't get what happened the first time, don't bother flipping back, just read on. He will explain it slightly differently another 10 times before the book is done.

It's a paint by numbers. If you've read at least the Chainfire series you know what's going to happen, I was only surprised once by this book. The rest I could smell books away, sigh.

I'd say if you've read all the previous ones so far, get this for closure and afterwards, please join me in saying..

WHY DO YOU KEEP REPEATING THE WORDS "THE MEANING OF LIFE"
Holy mother of moses! He must say it two hundred and sixteen times! I GOT IT THE FIRST TIME! "everyones life is sacred" oye! Whenever I read those parts I just wanted to rip the book in half because he repeats and repeats!
Rawr!
Horrible ending, but I won't ruin it for you :)

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I believe the people who rated Confessor with 4 or 5 stars must have been reffering to some other novel, surely not this trainwreck. Honestly I am so disappointed in not only the past 6 books, but the concluding book lacks everything you would hope for in a series closer.

**Spoilers Ahead*************************************************

I found myself (as I usually do) flipping forward about 10 pages at a time when Richard decides to go off on one of his rants. Goodness, I had no idea a kid from the woodlands would be able to preach as well as him with no formal training and little experience, not to mention he is so repetitive. Either way the short comings of the final book are anything but small. Remember our first wizard Zedd? Yes we all love Zedd, well in this book he is useless, continually he gets his butt kicked by Six and really does absolutely nothing productive. He seems more like Richards sidekick whom has nothing productive to say then a main character.

The book really doesn't get going until half way through and then everything is rushed. All the characters from the past make a one or two page appearance, we hear how our hero (who can do no wrong) has touched there lives for the better in some way or another, they kill someone offer their praise and move on.

And of course Terry needed to include "Pristinely gifted" into a few pages and if I hear "Ghosty Gobblies" one more time I will throw this laptop through the window. Oh and he just couldn't go one freakin book without mentioning that stupid goat Betty, how is this goat still alive, bleating and showing up everywhere even after Jennson is cptured by Jagang.
