  1. The Omen MachineBy Terry Goodkind Maybe Are we sure about this REALLY Did Terry Goodkind REALLY write this crap A review by Eric AllenBefore I get started I d like to make a point I ll do this by telling you a story it s called A Tale of Two Goodkinds It was the best of times It was the blurst of times, and if you don t get the reference, it s your loss Once upon a time there was an author named Terry Goodkind with a retelling of Arthurian legend he called The Sword of Truth book 1 Wizard s Firs [...]


  2. Being a big fan of this series I m sorry to say this book was a huge disappointment It seems that all of the characters who were very intelligent and insightful have become idiots who need to be explained every detail over and over Zed in particular didn t seem to have a clue most of the time until it was all laid out for him Not what you would expect from Zeddicus Zu l Zorander wizard of the First Order It was like I was reading a fantasy for dummies book At this point in the series characters [...]


  3. Dafuq This book earns a star solely because Goodkind mostly resisted his natural urges to retell every goddam story he s ever written before, which must have been hard for him So hard that the story suffered horribly.Now, The SOT novels were my first real venture into fantasy written for adults I was 13 and fell in love with WFR I think I ve attached a lot of sentimentality to the series because of this It is, undoubtedly, my favorite genre to read, and I m grateful to these books for the introd [...]


  4. rantingdragon the omenNote while only supports full stars, one star is indeed too much for this book If you go to our site via the link above, you will see that we gave this book a half star.The Omen Machine is the thirteenth installment in Terry Goodkind s persistently popular Sword of Truth series and marks the author s return to the fantasy genre after a short lived stint with contemporary fiction While no doubt many fans have been eagerly anticipating the continued adventures of Goodkind s s [...]


  5. This is somewhere between four and five stars for me, though I think the tendency toward the fifth star is because I m just so darn happy to be back in D Hara with Richard and Kahlan I m gonna go old school with a pro con list on this review Let s start with the bad news, because, frankly, there s very little of it CONS The trouble all starts the day after Cara s wedding sad wail I really thought we were settling in for a good long period of peace and prosperity after all that Jagang mess I unde [...]


  6. I wasn t optimistic about the idea of a continuation of the SOT series taking place after Confessor Terry Goodkind did such a fantastic job of wrapping up all the loose ends in the eleventh book that I was afraid a twelfth installment would just be beating a dead horse I m afraid to report that my gut instinct was correct Although I will admit that I sat down and read this book cover to cover in an afternoon a compelling plot has never been a problem with the SOT series , I was thoroughly disapp [...]


  7. Between this and the Law of nines, its really hard to say why I even like this guy any The first 5 books of the Sword of Truth series were PHENOMENAL The characters were growing, they interacted well, and the entire story developed with twists and turns that added to its overall flavor After the 5th book, though, the series took a dive The Pillars of Cration wasa waste A one off book that had nothing to do with the main storyline of the SoT Goodkind picked it back up some with the following book [...]


  8. Thank you for destroying a decent series with a hurried and poorly thought out conclusion It is almost as if Goodkind had a gun pointed at his crotch and a knife poised above his right hand, with red hot pokers in front of his eyes And then being told to type on an archaic typewriter Quickly Or Die Left handed.Thank you for destroying a decent series with a hurried and poorly thought out conclusion It is almost as if Goodkind had a gun pointed at his crotch and a knife poised above his right han [...]


  9. After reading Chain Fire I really didn t expect much Somehow I was still massively disappointed I m sure that others have already said it better than I care to, but I wouldn t wipe my ass with these pages It didn t have the voice or style of Terry Goodkind it didn t really have voice or style at all Maybe the omen machine wrote this book It felt hollow enough It was like SOT on sesame street These were not the characters that have been building in complexity over the years There were so many loo [...]


  10. At the risk of repetitively purposeful irony I will briefly summarise the major beefs I share with the majority of likeminded reviewers.This book begins immediately after Confessor, the day after the biggest war in history, a gathering of the most powerful rulers in the Empire of D Hara These rulers have lead their people through horrors beyond imagination and are quite used to postures of head down and bottom up singing prayers to their mighty Lord Rahl in both fear and love Not one would be fo [...]


  11. Really, Mr Goodkind No stars What a bag of arse I dnf ed at about 140 pages in, when it became painfully clear that this book should never have been released.I only picked it up because I liked the early Sword of Truth stuff the later books were deathly dull and I hoped that after a break of a few years, that the author might have remembered how to write.I was wrong I also blame the publishers for putting this piece of shit out Haven t they made enough money out of this series already The author [...]


  12. The Sword of Truth SoT was one of the first epic fantasy series that I read, consuming my teenage years and early twenties as I waited patiently and eagerly devoured each instalment in the twelve book series While Goodkind copped a lot of flak for his preachy style of writing becoming prevalent as the series progressed, book twelve did everything the final book of a series should do it tied up every loose end that had been introduced over the course of the series and delivered a conclusion that [...]


  13. I ve been a devoted fan of the books for over a decade Even as the writing style became and , for lack of a better word, annoying From Book 2 I noticed pages upon pages were filled with reminding us of the first story I always stayed patient thinking this was for those who may pick up a book mid series I was glad I did I, too, had fallen in love with the characters and wanted to know what their fates would be.However, I have been very disappointed in this latest book To the point that I had to [...]


  14. Richard and Kahlan are celebrating the wedding of their beloved friend, Cara, when they begin to recieve accounts of various people around the city speaking of prophecies Richard and Kahlan don t think much of it until they find a strange machine hidden away in a secret chamber underneath the Garden of Life within the palace A machine that produces the same prophecies the people have been muttering.Edit I first read this book when it came out, a little over a year ago, but decided to reread it s [...]


  15. I had been eagerly waiting for this book since it was announced another Richard and Kahlan book In the SOT universe YES Except this book was a joke The story sucked, the characters were familiar only be their names I mean, WTF was Goodkind thinking making Kahlan so powerless And Richard so bland Zed so not Zed And all the other characters so one dimensional, if that , the typos were ANNOYING AS HELL, and the repetition drove me crazy It was like the book was written for someone in grade school, [...]


  16. I am a fan of the SOT novels I think they are an entertaining series which really have something meaningful to say, even if they are hilariously derivative of Robert Jordan s Wheel of Time series The Omen machinet so much It s a decent book, but it s very short compared to other Goodkind books My guess is that the story he wrote is twice as long, and he just split it in half so that he could sell two full priced books instead of one That, or even he is getting tired of writing the same stuff ove [...]


  17. Of the books I have read, there have been very few over the years that I have not finished Unfortunatly, this novel is now added to that list I tried, but as much as I wanted to like it, I found that I in fact greatly disliked the content and the story.I only read about 350 pages of this novel, and I don t think I can actually force myself to continue to read.I have been a fan of the SoT series for years, since the very first release of The Wizard s First Rule, and I have been a diehard fan of T [...]


  18. i m not sure what to say there s blood and gore, alright kahlan got to unleash her thing, and there s mord sith action, too view spoiler even richard got to dance his jig hide spoiler zed, nathan, nicci, and cara were in the sidelines as expectedi guess i wanted to see of the midlands besides the people s palace and some cobwebby hedge maid s lairgot me thinking of the short lived legend of the seeker, thoughp90 if you leave them lie under their rock they re not likely to bother you, but if you [...]


  19. I m not a Terry Goodkind fan, not at all, but this book made me angry it isn t offensive or infamously over the top as some of his previous books, nor is it dripping with huge morality lessons on a ideology I find distasteful What made me angry was that it wasn t a complete book The book itself is actually quite dull and bland and the only moment of distaste is found in a bit of wonderfully described viscera describing a woman being torn apart along with the foetus of her unborn child.Apart from [...]


  20. This may be a contender for the worst book I ve ever read.It s not so much its tenuous grasp on its own reality the introduction of places and things that never got mentioned before, the use and understanding of machines in a setting that has never shown anything like it before I made the mistake on Facebook of referring to it as medieval, but you get my drift It s not so much the terrible, terrible writing writing that used to create lush, interesting landscapes and places, with characters you [...]


  21. I d advise fans of Terry Goodkind and The Sword of Truth to not bother to read this I m not even sure that Terry Goodkind wrote it Apart from the fact that some of the major plots in the book didn t even come close to a conclusion, Terry Goodkind seems to have forgotten everything that made us love the previous books Richard just makes up the answers as he goes along as his longtime advisers Zedd, Nicci, Nathan all appear to have been struck with moron disease Kahlan, who was possibly the strong [...]


  22. Let me start off first by saying i love Terry Goodkind s work even some of most fans least favorites This series was my introduction in the fantasy world and led me to read such epics as Game of Thrones and the Wheel of Time Series Now on to this book I couldn t even finish it, this has to be the worst written book i have EVER read The dialogue alone reads like it was written by a 6th grader Constant repeating of the same sentence 100 different ways was just plain annoying Yes i understand you n [...]


  23. I m about halfway through this book and so far its pretty mediocre Thank goodness Terry G put a cork in the soapbox preaching that overwhelmed the story of Richard and Kahlan in their last three books.There is indeed a story but I am waiting for the humour and fully realized characters to show up Just because I know and love these characters doesn t mean you can slack off on fleshing them out I am hoping for good things in the last half of the book UPDATE Well I finally made it to the end of the [...]


  24. A disappointing vacation read The early books in this series set up strong characters and conflict While the series faltered in the middle, I thought the recent books with the conclusion of the war were a good return to form.In this latest installment, interestingly framed as a Richard and Kahlan novel vs Sword of Truth, Goodkind is setting up a new conflict The war for the empire is over, and the people of D Hara are at last at peace But peace brings new problems If you aren t worried about sur [...]


  25. If you are a fan of the SOT series, like me, do yourself a favor and don t read this book.I almost died from boredom while I drudged myself through this Half of the book consist of long and unintelligent dialog, where Richard try to explain advanced ideas to his close friends I don t know how many times this scentence repeat itself Zedd WHAT DO YOU MEAN , RICHARD HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE The topics and points get over analyzed and discussed to death The text almost insult the reader in it s explaini [...]


  26. Terry Goodkind brought readers into the world of the Sword of Truth series in 1994 Over the series of 11 novels, the reader is taken on a journey of magic and war, love and deceit, beauty and death When Confessor released in September of 2008, the readers were told that it would be the last book in the Sword of Truth series For some of us, it was the end of an era Personally, I discovered the Sword of Truth series in 2001, and had read each book at least twice when Confessor was released The the [...]


  27. The book is primarily a mystery, albeit fantasy, without the impetus of a villain that exists in earlier books The death of Jagang has left a void, and Goodkind attempts to fill it with a new villain, but for the early part of this book the main conflict is essentially discovering the answer to the mystery what is the omen machine and what does it mean I don t feel this is handled with a sufficient degree of tension or suspense and I found the first half of the book quite slow and difficult to r [...]


  28. I love the Seeker of Truth universe, I really do I loved all the books in the original series, and didn t mind so much the slow pace of the last 3 books with their constant reiteration of the main moral points I appreciate them even now since the publishing of Law of Nines and The Omen Machine , both of them very thin, unfulfilled sketches in this universe Or multiverse I guess would be accurate to say It s as if some people complained that Terry expanded too much, repeated the same old exposi [...]


  29. I read The Omen Machine very quickly I have always been a fan of Terry Goodkind, and I eat his books like candy While I know his technical writing isn t completely perfect, Mr Goodkind can form a plot and push character development like no one else The Omen Machine was no exception His technical writing was better than usual in this book The plot was good, but not in depth enough for me I am used to the epic books of the Sword of Truth series This was a bit different It was fast paced, for one [...]


  30. This book was horrible I started out loving this series so much, then he sort of lost me with the middle books, but by the end I was sad it was over So when I heard that a new book was coming out other than the Law of Nines, which I couldn t force myself to finish , I was really excited.One thing I will give him is that at least this book didn t spend half its pages rehashing what happened in the previous books And because the Imperial Order is no longer a threat, there was no need to do all tha [...]
