Confessor by Terry Goodkind
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Finally finished the Sword of Truth series!
So was it good? Was it more of the same? Was it kinda heavy-handed with the philosophy? Yes! To all of the above!
No, honestly, it was rather interesting, even with all the super-bloody-football games and the neverending chatterbox about life-affirming actions, trips to the underworld, tons of research and magical theory, and a war, another war, a siege, and a ginormous army getting ready to consume the last remnants of the logical and the reasonable.
In other words, it's an epic fantasy with an agenda. And you know what? I still don't mind the agenda. Ayn Rand lives on. :) And despite all the long-winded stuff, there was so much action, tension, reveals, and massive successes and failures to fill a book twice as large. And this was a large book. :)
I'm happy I finished. I don't care what anyone else says. :)
