I have just finish the Stone of Tears and thoroughly enjoyed it. I can honestly say that I did not want the book to end, despite being almost 1000 pages long.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Just Not Good Enough
I enjoyed "Wizard's First Rule" enough that I pretty much went straight into this sequel. And it was grand. For a while. The problem I felt with it was it breathed nothing new into the fantasy genre. I won't bother with the Jordan comparisons - they're there but then you can always compare the Aes Sedai to Dune's Bene Gesserit, etc. Originality is rare in...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Good Story, 28. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sword of Truth 02. Stone of Tears (Taschenbuch)
I have just finish the Stone of Tears and thoroughly enjoyed it. I can honestly say that I did not want the book to end, despite being almost 1000 pages long. The adventure started in the first book continues on in epic fashion. This book explains a great deal more about the background the magic and it's users. The story line splits into three parts early on in the book between Richard, Kahlan and Zedd and then rejoins again at the end. Each embarks on a separate but united goal. The Stone of Tears just wet my appetite for the next book since there are still a few loose ends. What I enjoy most about this book is how it draws you in to the story. When I start to read, it feels as if I enter their world and leave this one behind. In my option, this going to great series, one in which I will remember for a long time.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sword of Truth 02. Stone of Tears (Taschenbuch)
I enjoyed "Wizard's First Rule" enough that I pretty much went straight into this sequel. And it was grand. For a while. The problem I felt with it was it breathed nothing new into the fantasy genre. I won't bother with the Jordan comparisons - they're there but then you can always compare the Aes Sedai to Dune's Bene Gesserit, etc. Originality is rare in fantasy. What really really really irritated me about this book was the ending. It drove me insane almost. The whole tone of the book is fairly bleak and dark and yet the ending...resolved in a few mere pages it is totally disjointed next to the rest of the book. In addition I can't feel anything for Richard or Kahlan. In fact they can be both more irritating than likable. Unlike Janny Wurts "Wars of Light and Shadow" characters, which have great depth to them, Goodkind's characters come across riddled with cliches too often...Yes the same can be said of many fantasy authors but the style of Goodkind's writing suggests he's trying to be deeper and more meaningful. That's why I can enjoy Feist - it's not deep but it's not *trying* to be.
The style of writing by itself is grand and there are good moments in it. It gets 2 stars because of the none-involving characters, a plot which seems to jerk from point to point on ocassion and largely due to the terrible awful ending...
I WOULD give Goodkind another go but not before I'm uptodate with better authors first.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Blech!!!, 24. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sword of Truth 02. Stone of Tears (Taschenbuch)
Disgusting. This is a total-ripoff of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, which wasn't that great in the first place. Sisters of the Light? Try Aes Sedai, or Children of the Light? What about Sisters of the Dark? Black Aes Sedai, as another reviewer pointed out. Chase is pretty much the warder Lan, and Moraine Sedai is none other than our very own Kahlan Amnell! Sure, I liked Richard in this book, but I thought he was just as good when he was Rand's "father", Tam. Not worth the time or money. Don't read unless you're borrowing it from a friend and you plan on burning it. Even Ba'alzamon was a better force of evil than the Keeper!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Birds of a Feather..., 10. Mai 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sword of Truth 02. Stone of Tears (Taschenbuch)
The only thing more saddening than Goodkind's abysmal writing style, unrealistic and childish world and stereotypical characters seems to be the apparent legions of fans who proclaim him as the best thing since sliced bread (which, I suppose, would be correct if that is your perspective. Sigh. I just hope no other publishers will put forth similar drivel to cash in on the indiscriminate market of escapist pulp fantasy.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent story-teller, but the story-line...Robert Jordan, 17. Februar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sword of Truth 02. Stone of Tears (Taschenbuch)
I rated this book as an 8 only because Terry Goodkind is so good with words. He really knows how to WRITE. As you read his words, you know exactly where you are and who you are watching;Goodkind is a wonderfully descriptive author,your mind's eye's vision and your inner senses are all in full swing at all times.
I would've rated this a 10 had I not read Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time prior to this. The story-line of Goodkind's runs exactly parrallel to Jordan's.
The story:
The prophecies of old have all spoken of the inevitable end of the world. There is no getting around it unless the chosen one is found and trained properly...
...the people closest to him know he is the one, except they know he wont accept it, wants nothing to do with it.
The woman who is sharing his love and life with doesn't want to lose him, but the only way to save their world is to send him away with a collar around his neck, to a far distant land to learn how to use his power. Because she loves him so deeply, she must send him away. Because he loves her so deeply, he will go even though he wants nothing less than to leave her side...
There his journey begins.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Terry Goodkind's stone of tears, 28. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Oh dear, oh dear, where did it all go wrong Terry? What a pity,when the first book was quite good this book is just pure unfilteredcrude &@*!$. Terry plunders every cliche known to man and doesnt seem to have his own writing style. The way Kahlen and Richard kept apologising to each other at every available opportunity smacked to me of an author who can't write a decent line of dialog or of line wasting. Terry is deeply preoccupied with physical violence and uses it at every opportunity to shock the reader. The ending was the most contrived i've read in years! Terry conspires to forget about the plot for the whole book until the last 10 pages where he tries to squeeze it all in! It just doesn't work! Poor show Terry. END

1.0 von 5 Sternen Oh my God!, 9. Februar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The only thing worst than reading Stone of Tears is reading these reviews! Someone actually reviewed this book as "long but worthwhile!" Great! Terry Goodkind fans are people with the attention span of gnats who need D'Haran soldiers cutting open small boys and raping their livers to keep their attention for more than three pages! Terry Goodkind should be the public relations advisor to Saddam Hussein.

Oh! The characters... Big handsome good guy! Cute little good girl! Perverted, sinister bad guys! Terry makes Dr. Seuss look like deep reading. Actually, I don't think most Goodkind fans could get through an entire book by Dr. Seuss without wandering off and raping their sisters or something.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Trash, 7. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde
This novel is utter and complete garbage. After 600 pages of wading through waist-high piles of raped corpses, I wanted the Keeper of the Underworld to destroy everything just to make it stop. The story drags through the death and destruction until the very end where everything is suddenly resolved in slam-bang fiesta of Spielburgian special effects and the book is over before you figure out what happened. The subplot with the conflict between the Ai'Sedai... I mean Sisters of the Light and Dark was briefly interesting, but the rampaging stupidity of the Sisters of the Light had me rooting for the Dark.

1.0 von 5 Sternen There is NO God!, 9. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Sword of Truth 02. Stone of Tears (Taschenbuch)
There is NO God, and this book prooves it! If there was then he would fling Mr. Goodkind and his publishers into the fiery hell they so richly deserve! This book is the most atrocious use of the English language that has ever been. I feel the need to switch to a different tongue simply because Mr. Goodkind speaks this one. The writing is infantile, the plots absurd, and the eloqution terrible. Mr. Goodkind, go check your report cards, I'm pretty sure you'll find a failing grade from your 2nd grad english teacher. Read this if you want to feel horribly ill.

1.0 von 5 Sternen ...And I thought he might improve!, 11. November 1996
Von Ein Kunde
I thought Goodkind might improve on his second book--but, ifanything, he's gotten worse: the storyline is even morepredictable than in the first, the characters have become the Lords of Cliche (as if they could have gotten any thinner), and the style is even more bloated and irrelevent. It's as if he sat down and TRIED to write a book with every contrived device any fantasy author has ever put down on the page--as is, without making them his own in any way. A real master of low-grade hackmanship.
