Underground Reading: Wizard's First Rule - Terry Goodkind

I stumbled upon this ridiculously awesome review of Goodkind's Wizard's First Rule in some time ago, and since I reread it again today, I thought to link it here. Favorite moment:

Richard also learns that, outside of fantasy Alabama, there's a whole world of gender-specific magical powers. Richard is a Seeker. Seekers are men, because only men can get angry. Kahlan is a Confessor. Only women can be Confessors because only women can love. Later we learn about the Torture Nymphs (women, as only women can be sensitive and wear leather), Wizards (men, as only men can do math and handle pain) and Sorceresses (women, as only women can be inferior to men). Richard's dim brain is pleased with the idea that he is a man, and therefore not doesn't have to wear leather.

It is WELL worth the time, even if you haven't read the book, but especially if you have and find it as absurd as I do.


  1. Thanks for the link! I'm glad you enjoyed it!

  2. I did not enjoy it. I loved it! I hated that book with a passion...

  3. Too fashionable to hate on Goodkind ;P
