BOOK REVIEW: Wizard's First Rule: Sword of Truth, Book 1 (Book Series) UNABRIDGED by Terry Goodkind

Book Review Wizards First Rule Sword of Truth Terry Goodkind

"Captivating Fantasy"

Would you consider the audio edition of Wizard's First Rule to be better than the print version?
I loved the tv series and this is just as good with a few additional things the tv series doesn't show you. After reading this, I had to go back and watch some of the episodes again. Highly recommend this series.

Who was your favorite character and why?
The seeker, he's dynamic and interesting. His love life is sad, but he always means well and is the true heroic figure of any fantasy book.

What does Sam Tsoutsouvas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He is an excellent reader, very captivating.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yeah - highly recommend the tv series.

Easy to work with

With over ten years of experience in the field of software development she is no stranger to detailed documentation. Sometimes the simple practice of recording challenges, lessons learned, and creating pattern libraries is overlooked or undervalued until the team revisits a long forgotten project or onboards a new team member. Readily available and detailed artifacts of a solid knowledge base can help teams really hit the ground running, while creating reusable artifacts that create consistency centered around universal design.
