Format: Mass Market Paperback
Against my initial reluctance to reopen a favourite, concluded series, I bought the paperback edition of Omen Machine and read through the whole story. It was heartwarming to read about characters I've come to care about and have missed for the past few years. It was a nice reunion, and despite any other criticisms of Terry Goodkind, the man can write action scenes like no one else. Heart pounding, gripping and masterfully descriptive. That said, I wish I had left the series alone.

It is so profoundly disappointing to see that Goodkind's two main characters - our heroes Richard and Kahlan - have evolved from young, uncertain heroes fighting for what's right and overcoming their doubts, into super know-it-alls who barely tolerate the silly beliefs of the common folk.

A scene repeated frequently in the second half of this long, multi-book series is of one of our core group of enlightened heroes standing in front of a crowd - often on a raised platform - lecturing at length about some topic or another. Usually this is a thinly veiled monologue about how most people don't think for themselves, but instead allow others/superstition/fear/etc do the thinking for them.

They don't even need a crowd to do some lecturing - they do it to each other in the guise of solving some problem. For example, in Omen Machine, Zedd, a wise old wizard who taught Richard most of what he knows, suddenly becomes clueless and close-minded. He even acts like a book written in a language he doesn't recognize must be useless - simply to give our hero the chance to educate him (really it's us the Clueless Reader who is being educated). I think Richard goes on about how he knows the language of ‘emblematic representations’ at least 5 times. Ug.

was horrid.... did I mention that the completely ineffectual reference to OMEN over and over and over and over and over completely bored me so badly. I actually finished the original series..... I could not finish this book... Terry writing for dollars maybe?

A very fast paced story, I didn't want to put it down. This was certainly a shorter book compared to most of the other books in this series, but it flowed seamlessly from the previous book, which I thought was the end of the series, so I was very happy to see Richard and Kahlan's adventures continue on. Mr. Goodkind continues to keep me guessing all the way through this one. Can't wait to start reading the Third Kingdom now.

I had just finished reading Terry Goodkind's Sword Of Truth series earlier in the year and was over-joyed when I heard there would be another Richard & Kahlan book released in the summer.

Terry Goodkind did not disappoint me with The Omen Machine - each page kept me absolutely riveted and I finished the book in only four days (I'm a slow reader who likes to take her time, so this is quite a feat for me). All of our favourite characters make a return in this new instalment, beginning where we left off, at Cara and Benjamin's wedding. The D'Haran Empire has itself a new foe and I can picture this new story lasting for another couple of books at least. I highly recommend this new Sword of Truth novel to anyone who has enjoyed Mr. Goodkind's previous novels. You will not be disappointed.

If you read the previous books, it's just normal to read this one. It directly follows the last book. It might not entice new readers, but it's still a good one.

it's a start to another great richard and kahlan adventure, slow in some parts but it's always a build up to something great that will make you not to put the book down.

Kind of disapointing, was expecting more action,also it seems the autor rushed the ending, I dunno, it feels like a really weak level compared to the Sword of Truth series

I feel like there was a lot of repetition in this book and no character development. I'm normally a huge fan of Goodkind but I feel like he didn't put as much effort into this read.
