Publisher's 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.

Awful narration!! Not worth one star!

I love this book and so I was amazed at how such a great book could be ruined by such bad narration. The reader puts emphasis on odd parts of sentences and words making it unbearable to listen to. I gave up after 5 mins of hoping it would get better. I don't normal write reviews but I had to comment on this waste of a credit that I always look forward to using!

Terrible robotic narration

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is a brilliant book, the strongest in the series in my opinion, but the only person to enjoy this narration would be someone addicted to text-talk handsets


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Ever get your handset or computer to read out a phrase to yourself? This sounded like Siri's less talkative and educated cousin was reading it, simply awful, I managed 15 minutes before deleting it. why change from the narrator of the first book?


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

utter disappointment


Any additional comments?

If you want an example of excellent narration try the Wheel of Time series, the narrators bring characters to life, this reading sadly was more of the nail in the coffin of the Sword of Truth series
