A Difficult Read . . .,
This review is from: Soul of the Fire: A Sword of Truth Novel (Hardcover)I've truly enjoyed reading all of the Sword of Truth novels, BUT this one definitely tried my patience.
Mr. Goodkind is adept at developing a history to show his readers why the characters act as they do. But this book concerns itself so much with explaining the behavior of the Anderith people, that I found myself wanting to just move on to the next book.
However, if you plan to go on the the next book, you still need to read this one to understand why Richard loses heart in his fight.
This is not a bad book, but be prepared to read on, even when the story isn't keeping your interest.
