Terry Goodkind – Author of Sword Of Truth Audiobook. Although Wizard’s First Rule Audiobook is a young adult fantasy audiobook replete with magic, kingdoms, wizards, dragons and swords, there are other scenes that some readers will find disturbing. These include the brutal murder of a young boy whose body is cannibalized. One character is a sadistic homosexual pedophile killer forced to eat his own genitals while another is a dominatrix who practices bondage and tortures the hero. Written by: Terry Goodkind. Narrated by: Sam Tsoutsouvas.

I particularly like the philosophical edge the series has. Most people complain about this, but I find it to be one of the more intriguing and interesting things about the novels. These are mostly revealed as "Wizard's Rules",while some are brought up in discussions between characters. It gives the stories some substance where they otherwise may have fallen short. In any case, the series is definitely worth a try if you're into medieval fantasy, and can enjoy a book at face value.

Terry Goodkind Wizard’s First Rule For Jeri The Map Chapter 1 It was an odd-looking vine. Sap drooled down the wounded bark, and dry limbs slumped, making it look as if the tree were trying to voice a moan into the cool, damp morning air. Pods stuck out from the vine here and there along its length, almost seeming to look warily about for witnesses.

Wizard’s First Rule, the first novel by Terry Goodkind, was a phenomenon from the moment it was published by Tor Books in 1994, selling over a million copies in North America alone. It still sells more than 100,000 copies a year there and has gone on to bestsellerdom in the United Kingdom and in more than twenty foreign translations as well as audiobook form. It is now being developed as one of the most ambitious television miniseries of all time

CHAPTER 1. IT WAS AN ODD-LOOKING vine. It was the smell that first had caught his attention, a smell like the decomposition of something that had been wholly unsavory even in life

CHAPTER 1. It was the smell that first had caught his attention, a smell like the decomposition of something that had been wholly unsavory even in life. Richard combed his fingers through his thick hair as his mind lifted out of the fog of despair, coming into focus upon seeing the vine. He scanned for others, but saw none.

In the aftermath of the brutal murder of his father, Richard Cypher encounters a mysterious woman, Kahlan Amnell, in his forest sanctuary. She seeks his help...and more. His world, his very beliefs, are shattered when ancient debts come due with thundering violence. In their darkest hour, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword—to invoke within himself something more noble. Neither knows that the rules of battle have just changed...or that their time has run out. This is the beginning. One book. One rule. Witness the birth of a legend. “Wonderfully creative, seamless, and stirring.” – Kirkus Review

Let me start off by saying that Goodkind is not the greatest writer ever. I completely agree that he has plenty of faults; he blatantly borrowed a few of his concepts from the Lord of the Rings (Samuel=Gollum), and nowadays he seems preoccupied with making money off the series than he is about improving his skills as an author (such as the television spin-off Legend of the Seeker, as well as the post-series arc that blatantly jumps on the zombie apocalypse bandwagon, among other things).

That being said, the Sword of Truth series is still my personal favorite.

There is violence. A lot of violence. It gets pretty graphic. There's also some dark, sexual stuff that happens, too, but not as explicit. If you're into fanfiction, think "lemon" territory--it's mentioned, and it happens, but he doesn't go into nitty gritty details.

The characters are what keeps me coming back, but they are admittedly a little unbelievable; The protagonist Richard is a little too "perfect" and "god like", coupled with abilities that seem to do exactly what he needs when he needs it. His love interest Kahlan seems to be more of a plot device than a character; she has her B.A. moments throughout the series, but most of the time she's just a motivator in Richard's quests. The two of them spend an awful lot of time forced apart throughout the series (gets a little repetitive the further you go, tbh). Zedd is my personal favorite and probably the best written overall, though he is in every sense the typical grandfatherly character that's there to provide words of wisdom and moral support.

The series hits its high point at Faith of the Fallen; all of the characters get a chance to really shine, particularly Richard. Beyond that the series falls into the muck of war fiction, and before that Goodkind still seems to be struggling to flesh out his world and characters.

I particularly like the philosophical edge the series has. Most people complain about this, but I find it to be one of the more intriguing and interesting things about the novels. These are mostly revealed as "Wizard's Rules",while some are brought up in discussions between characters. It gives the stories some substance where they otherwise may have fallen short.

In any case, the series is definitely worth a try if you're into medieval fantasy, and can enjoy a book at face value. If you're worried about the graphic nature of it, I might suggest starting with Stone of Tears, as Goodkind does a decent job of filling you in on what happened in Wizard's First Rule without being so shockingly graphic (from what I can recall, WFR is definitely the worst in this aspect). I picked up Stone of Tears first, and went back to read WFR after the fact, which may be why I didn't get scared away by the graphic events in the first book.

I started off with LOTR and moved to ASOIAF. Like many I wanted something similar while I wait for Martin to finally finish his next book. I read several books and his dark material series trying to fill the void. I came upon the debt of bones in a collection of short fantasy stories and it reeled me in. I saw that Goodkind was getting a lot of positive reviews but after reading his critics I thought twice about starting the series. It really is crazy how well his books are rated but so many people like me were almost influenced by the strong criticism against him.

Anyway after I started I had a really hard time putting the book down. I think reading Martin actually made this book better for me. Martin is so ruthless you never know who is safe and I think that kept me on the edge of my seat while reading this book. Also I really bought in to the anguish and despair of the characters and I thought that really made the book great too. Another draw for me are the different kinds of magics. Their limitations and how they compliment each other are really interesting.

There are some pretty dark parts, but if you are fine with Martin you'll be fine with Goodkind. There are a lot of coincidences and maybe luck, but this is fantasy so to me that stuff is ok :) He does reiterate a lot, but again it didn't bother me. To me it kept reinforcing the despair and anguish.

Lastly, like I said, I had a hard time putting this book down and that's what I've been looking for since Martin's last book. It moves at a pretty fast pace I think. Goodkind put in plenty of twists that make you want to keep reading to see how they come together.

For the first novel in a long running series, Wizard's First Rule (WFR for short) is not your typical first novel where the author it attempting to get the story in order & work out the details & characters. The plot of the story is riveting, the characters are well imagined & the world they inhabit is similar to our own. The two main characters (Richard Cypher, & Kahlan Amnell) are intriguing & well written.

Though the story does have it's "slow points", the characters & the overall plot more than make-up for the brief lull in the action. This is a book I would recommend to fans of fantasy, especially those who have read George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice & Fire series.

What first grabbed my attention to this book was the artwork on the cover, which was drawn by Keith Parkinson. Seeing that art, I could just imagine being there & seeing that view myself.

I absolutely love all Terry Goodkind novels... this is the first in a long running series that should not be missed.... if you saw the sword of truth tv series you only have a tiny inkling of what these books are all about.... think lord of the rings type long fantasy novel not campy television...Richard the main male character is a man of strong conviction who has no idea that not only does he have a unique heritage and a very unusual type of magic, but that his whole world is going to change in crazy ways... Kahlen wanders into his life and becomes the most important person in his existence... but she is so very much more than a romantic lead... she has magic of her own that is truly deadly and is desperate to save all the little people she is responsible for....Zedd is a lovable crazy character who has more secrets than you would think....... this book will introduce you to the true vision of Terry Goodkind...there are things in these stories that are more akin to a philosophy wrapped in story that will not let go...I have ALL of the books in this series in hardback and go back to them again and again...
