Book · Wizard's First Rule Ë Terry Goodkind A Legend BeginsIn the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father Richard Cypher encounters a mysterious woman Kahlan Amnell in his forest sanctuary She seeks his helpand His wo Terry Goodkind is a grossly inept writer with the writing ability of a somewhat intelligent seventh grader but he jumped into the wide open fantasy field when there were hardly any good fantasy writers a state that hasn't completely changed btw and he has the persistence to turn out 600 page novels and so he got published and now he's grandfathered in because some people don't have better taste than to buy his novels Additionally his early work is grotesuely derivative mostly of Robert Jordan as a matter of fact It also includes all kinds of cliché fantasy tropes which then never appear again in the series as though dragons and gars just up and wandered off the planet at some point His bad guys particularly in this book are such a mish mash of evil that they became caricatures of evil and are actually laughable For instance either Darken Rahl or his henchman I don't remember which These guys were not just evil and out to despoil everything in sight and out for total power and in cahoots with the evil underworld spirits one of them was also a child molester to boot I'm sure Goodkind would have called him a Nazi had the concept fit into his milieu And finally after about four novels or so Goodkind sacrifices story telling on the altar of making a political point and since then every book has been a thinly veiled objectivist anti religious and anti altruism rant I don't care that he has a point of view or that he occasionally slips it into his writing but his evil characters have become now not caricatures of evil but mean spirited caricatures of the philosophy he opposes And so he has shown himself through his writing to be someone I would despise uite apart from it someone who can't conceive that the people who see things differently are men and women of good will who have just come to separate conclusions He tortures the crap out of his writing in order to make it serve his convoluted agendaDo yourself a favor and don't start this series Especially if like me you have OCD tendencies and feel compelled to finish what you startAnd yes I am jealous— that a lousy writer like that can have 600 page volume after 600 page volume published and I can't Because frankly I think I'm better than he is
