Summary:

In Wizard's First Rule, Richard Cypher's world was turned upside down. Once a simple woods guide, Richard was forced to become the Seeker of Truth, to save the world from the vile dominance of Darken Rahl, the most viciously savage and powerful wizard the world had ever seen. He was joined on this epic quest by his beloved Kahlan, the only survivor among the Confessors, who brought a powerful but benevolent justice to the land before Rahl's evil scourge. Aided by Zedd, the last of the wizards who opposed Rahl, they were able to cast him into the underworld, saving the world from the living hell of life under Rahl. But the veil to the underworld has been torn, and Rahl, from beyond the veil, begins to summon a sinister power more dreadful than any he has wielded before. Horrifying creatures escape through the torn veil, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting world above. If Rahl isn't stopped, he will free the Keeper itself, an evil entity whose power is so vast and foul that once freed, it can never again be contained.

    Very good story and full of suspense and great moments. A lot of hard time to the heroes also!

    Not as good as book one, abit upsetting in places, author doesn't hold back on the worst side of human nature. Took a little while to get used to the narrator, who sounds like John Wayne. I kind of liked the John Wayne accent by the end of the book, it gave the book a different flavour. ☺

    The story was a fun and creative romp with lots of action and good character development. I continued listening despite how terrible I felt the narrator was - the worst voices I’ve ever heard. He seemed to have 3 to choose from: whining, awestruck (but for whole pages of dialogue, not just a statement or two for emphasis) or droning on. I fell asleep listening so many times I had to relegate this audiobook to when I was walking outside only.

    It took determination to get through this book simply because of the narrator.

    I have read the books myself but then again having them read to me is awesome. I have the whole collection, and I have read them 8 times I guess now makes 9 :) thank you

    Why oh why isn't it the same narrator? I love these books, I love this book. It makes me bawl like a baby every time (SPOILERS) Richard leaves Kahlan behind and thinks that she sent him away. This book tugs at the heartstrings at every turn. The narrators dead, tone less, strangely inflected voice brought no emotions forth from me when I heard him read this book. It's like, maybe he's an alien who just learned how humans speak? It was weird and off and his voice is entirely unpleasant for narrating a near 40 hour book. The narrator for wizards first rule is far superior, I especially enjoyed his voice for Zedd.
