1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work, June 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is very unreliable. The hub keeps losing its ability to sync, rendering the keyboard completely useless. I have to constantly unplug the hub and plug it back in. That kind of defeats the whole purpose of "wireless". I will never again buy a Logitech product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Completely useless, April 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The touchscreen doesn't work. Considering that this is one of the router's main selling points, this thing is pretty useless. The few times I get sad response, it's from a very different part of the screen than what I tapped. And I have to press hard with my finger. The stylus is completely useless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but bubbles., November 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Worst screen protector I have ever used. I followed installation instructions exactly and I couldn't find a single place on my screen that wasn't full of bubbles. I have put screen protectors on many devices before but this was by far the worst experience I have ever encountered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad math, September 28, 2012
Duke Nukem Forever is a pretty good game, same for Borderlands. I'm sure Darkness 2 is probably halfway decent as well. Here is why I am giving this a one-star rating. I am rating the actual bundle itself as a single purchase. 2K Games obviously doesn't understand the concept of a "bundle".

Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition is $24.17

Duke Nukem Forever is $15.01

The Darkness II is $29.99

Total price for all three games combined is $69.17

Now since this is a "bundle" deal, we should naturally expect the bundle price to be less than or equal to $69.17. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The bundle price is $99.97. You are paying an extra $30.80 just for the added convenience of having to click your mouse a few times less during the purchasing process. If I'm missing something here, I would be very curious to know what that extra $30.80 would get me, because I'm at a loss.

Like I said before, I am rating the bundle itself, not the individual games.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely boring read., June 17, 2011
I read this book out of simple curiosity, since it is all the rage in many countries around the world. I found myself blown away by just how boring this book is. I had to suffer through page after page of endless litanies about odd laws and rituals that govern every mundane aspect of life. The author clearly didn't want readers to have to do much thinking. I found the recurring motif about the horrible fate of unbelievers to be obnoxiously repetitive. OK, I get it. Unbelievers are going to Hell. I got that message the first 999,999,999 times the book said it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great end to a great series!, June 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
WARNING: Contains mild spoilers

Some of the negative reviews seem to be missing the point. Confessor is best analyzed in its role in the series as opposed to its value as a standalone book. Confessor was the book that needed to be written. Goodkind has become famous for inserting multiple layers of meaning in his writing. Just look at the "bringer of death" translations cited frequently in the series for a good example. Confessor was a very well done exercise in creating layered meaning.

When dealing with the Boxes of Orden, the differing approaches of Darken Rahl and Ruchard Rahl are juxtaposed quite nicely. Darken Rahl relies on mysticism and tradition as a means of acquiring the power of Orden, whereas Richard relies on reason. Clearly, Richard's reason-based approach proved to be superior.

Perhaps the oddest mystery throughout the series was the role of the Seeker. Goodkind describes Richard's roles as Lord Rahl, a war wizard, the Caharin, the prophetic "pebble in the pond", and the "bringer of death" in sufficient detail. It therefore seems odd that the role of Seeker of Truth is not really defined, especially given the fact that the series is named after the Sword of Truth -- the magical item which is inextricably linked to the position of Seeker. In the first book of the series, Zedd makes a few vague comments about the Seeker being a law unto himself and a defender of justice, but nothing more beyond these vague remarks is said about what exactly a Seeker is or why the position was created by the old wizards of the Great War.

When Darken Rahl puts the Boxes of Orden into play, Kahlan believes her only hope of stopping him is to locate Zedd and convince him to appoint the Seeker. Later in the series, Richard learned that many wizards died (possibly a hidden reference to the deadly power of Orden) while attempting to create the Sword of Truth in the midst of a desperate time in the Great War. Clearly then, the Seeker of Truth was meant to be more than a medieval boy scout with a magic sword of dubious value.

Confessor is the book that resolves this great mystery. While it doesn't spoon-feed the answer to readers, it provides enough information for the readers to solve the mystery on their own, just as Richard has to use his own mind to solve the great mystery he had to face in Confessor.

If you don't want the mystery explained to you, now is a good time to stop reading. This is just my interpretation, but I believe it sufficiently explains the mystery of the Seeker.

The old wizards of the Great War were understandably fearful of some of the weapons of magic created during the course of the war. Among the most dangerous were the Chainfire spell and the Chimes, although they probably would have never predicted that these two great threats would one day become combined. The Boxes of Orden were created as a counter to the Chainfire spell, but like all powerful magic, it could be used for both good or evil. If the wizards wanted to prevent the Boxes of Orden from becoming a greater danger than the Chainfire spell, they had to put some sort of safeguard on the magic to ensure that it wouldn't be used for nefarious purposes.

The Book of Counted Shadows was intended to be a trap for the unwary. The power-hungry would be too consumed by their quest for power that they would fail to realize the significance of the introductory text that mentions the need for a Confessor. As an additional layer to this trap, several forgeries were created. After expending a great deal of effort to verify the "correct copy", the user would have likely felt a sense of satisfaction, which would make him less cautious.

The Book of Counted Shadows (even the correct version) was the fake key to the Boxes of Orden. The Sword of Truth was the real key. The use of the Sword of Truth in this way requires the one who wields it to be able to turn the blade white. Only the true Seeker of Truth who has come to that level of understanding of himself and others is able to turn the blade white. The rest are false Seekers who are all eventually consumed by the sword's power until their minds and bodies degenerate. This is yet another safeguard to ensure that the power of Orden doesn't fall into the wrong hands. It seems from reading Confessor that the primary role of the Seeker of Truth is to be a person of such a character that the entire world can be entrusted to his judgements.
