Ive read extracts of the later books in the series, I think their great. Sword of Truth is an excellent fantasy series, but your opinion is your choice.Please, spare yourself. The first few books of that series (i.e. "The Sword That Makes You Angry") are decent...but beyond that, it degenerates into Terry Goodkind's platform for ranting against socialism and drooling over Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. It's really not worth the necessary investment of time in the long run, if you ask me.
Still, you're free to live your life as you please and read whatever books you will. Just...I did try to warn you.
As for myself? I just finished reading One Hundred Years of Solitude for school. Not sure what I'll be moving on to, just yet.
