5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest fantasy book ever, September 7, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth, Book 1) (Hardcover)
I've read books across genres for the last 20 years and have never run across such a phenomenal blend of fantasy and philosophy, of action and romance and of truths that touch upon the human spirit and lift it up to higher and nobler aspirations. This book in and of itself acts as a sword of truth. The purity of the story is worthy on its own of praise and wonder but Goodkind poured so much passion into the characters and the universal messages he sends out to his reader that one cannot review this book without words like life changing and inspirational coming to mind. Several reviews attempt to make Mr. Goodkind sound like a hack and I pity those people so full of hate and pettyness that they don't recognize a jewel in a genre bogged down in slime.

Amen Mr. Goodkind. You've yet to disappoint! Iam born new from the words in this story and I am better than I was before I read it. Thank you.
