Summary:

Book Four of The Sword of Truth - the series first begun in Wizard's First Rule - returns listeners to the world of Richard Cypher, a simple woods guide who never dreamed he would be named the Seeker of Truth and become caught up in magic, war, and dangers so extraordinary that the fate of his entire world would hang on his actions and decisions. The dangerous, fanatical Imperial Order, under the leadership of the power-mad Emperor Jagang and his multitude of demonic underlings, unleashes a deadly plague. To find a cure Richard Cypher and his beloved Kahlan Amnell must seek out the legendary Temple of the Winds, a fortress of evil sealed away for three thousand years. But the path of the Seeker of Truth is never an easy one - even if he can reach the Temple at all, there is no guarantee he'll ever return.

    About half way through, and it's so god damn painful with these god awful British accents. The monotone narrator in book 2 was 8000% more tolerable than this old weeb

    The narrator did a fantastic job at giving different voices to different characters, but he mispronounced several characters' names.

    Narrator is an over dramatic tool, he doesn't know the names. He makes Richard sound like some wanker private detective from a 50's movie that only speaks through gritted teeth, and all women in this mans mind speak like simpletons. If you like this series find this book somewhere else. Total disappointment.

    Great book - keeps you engaged, but frustrating that the reader didn't listen to previous versions so the name pronunciation would be the same.

    2 minutes in and im asking myself who tf is Collin? Only realizing it was Kahlan. . . This is the same audio group that recorded the last few. Why is there no consistency?

    Big Sword of Truth fan but am terribly disappointed in this audiobook. About halfway through now. The story is fine but the narrator is very poor. He has obviously not listened to previous recordings and mis-pronounces names of major characters. Kalen, KAY-len as fans know her, sounds like Colin and he even changes the stress at times throughout the book calling her CoLIN. He uses cheesy "Oliver-ish" old English stereotypes for certain characters while other characters retain an American accent. Sorry to rail-on about the narrator but It's really so bad that I'm considering just reading the synopsis and moving on to another book. Very, Very poor indeed. I gave the book a 2 only because the story is fine. I would give the narrator a zero if I could.

    Loved it! The name thing does suck. But other than that, a great book.

    Everyone has been correct in the narrator does not pronounce main characters names correctly. I really wish that they would redo this narration.

    I agree wholeheartedly with the first reviewer. When you're a fan of a story having the characters names mispronounced is rather irritating. I am a regular audio book listener and poor narrating is a difficult thing to get past in a story you would otherwise love.
