En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Terry Goodkind est le nouveau prodige de la Fantasy américaine. En quelques mois, son cycle de L'Epée de Vérité est devenu un best-seller international, vendu à plus de 20 millions d'exemplaires. Pour la première fois depuis Terry Brooks, un auteur a de nouveau réussi l'exploit de réunir tous les publics sous sa bannière. Traîtrise, aventure, intrigue, amour, tous les ingrédients sont réunis dans ce cycle pour en faire la plus grande fresque de Fantasy depuis Tolkien. Né en 1948 à Omaha, Nebraska, Goodkind a d'abord intégré une école d'art de la ville pour se spécialiser dans la représentation de la faune et de la flore. Par la suite, il a opté pour une carrière de menuisier, avant de se consacrer à la fabrication d'instruments de musique, comme les violons, pour enfin s'intéresser à la restauration d'artéfacts rares et exotiques du monde entier. Toutes ces expériences ont contribué à faire de lui un écrivain à part entière et se retrouvent dans ses romans. En 1983, il part s'installer avec son épouse Jeri dans les montagnes boisées du nord-est américain qu'il aime tant, surplombant la mer. Il construira lui même sa maison où il finira dix ans plus tard par écrire La Première leçon du sorcier qui obtint un succès immédiat. Le dixième tome de cette série qui en comptera onze est sorti aux USA en juin 2006. Vous n'avez pas fini de rêver...

Je suis tombée sur cette série complètement par hazard et franchement je ne regrette rien!
Malgré quelques longueurs en début de chaque tomes on se laisse prendre à chaque fois et on est impatient d'entammer le suivant pour connaitre la suite.
Tout y est, l'aventure, la magie, la violence, l'amour. Un univers à part où on se laisse complètement embarquer. Le personnage de Richard s'étoffe au fil des aventures et devient de plus en plus complexe et interessant.
J'en suis au 7ème tome et toujours aussi impatiente de connaitre la suite!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Toujours plus haut! 23 septembre 2007
Par Amy
Format:Poche
The Pillars of Creation est vraiment très long à lire du fait que les héros n'apparaissent qu'une cinquantaine de pages avant la fin sur 700 pages ce qui est assez décourageant compte tenu du très bon "La Foi des Réprouvés".Naked Empire est lui bien meilleur car on y retrouve les héros même si l'intrigue en elle-même n'est pas extraordinaire et le dénouement surprenant et très peu crédible.Cependant c'est une étape à passer pour arriver au l'excellent Chainfire suivi de Phantom.Chainfire vous donne la chair de poule et vous fait réfléchir sur vos convictions les plus profondes, c'est le livre à la hauteur sinon encore au dessus de "La Foi des Réprouvés".A lire absolument!!!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Stop at volume 6 ! 4 avril 2011
Par S.Ardoin
Format:Poche
This is probably the worst book I have ever read.

I've loved the first 6, and from this book onwards - and especially with this book - I find Goodkind's work to be totally empty and denuded of interest.

I can't begin to understand why, as one of the other reviewers wrote "did he even write this book" ?. I personnaly believe that success made Goodkind fall head over heels into self-admiration and lust to sell more, to the detriment of his books' quality. The plot is staightforward, the characters unsurprising and simple, the "philosophical" (I would rather quote this term in this context) statements simplistic, boringly long, and frankly laughable.

I read the two following 'Pillars of Creation' : 'Naked Empire' and 'Chainfire', which are a little better. To tell the truth, I felt that I was taken hostage and forced to read these books because I so much liked the previous ones that I bought all three at once.

These will definetely be the last Goodkind I read

5.0 étoiles sur 5 3-great books, each for totally different reasons 25 octobre 2006
Par Jeff Edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
As a HUGE fan of the Sword of Truth series, I have picked up each novel with a renewed interest in where Terry Goodkind will send us next, and what will happen next in the monumental battle against Jagang's seeminly endless army of the Order. Most of the novels have been absolutely amazing -- with only two exceptions, one of which has been included in this boxed set.

Pillars Of Creation ****

If this had been the very first book in the series, it would have been received MUCH better than it originally was. I have three big reasons why, and they have NOTHING to do with how good the book is. Let me explain: I purchased this book originally in hardback, and I noticed that the inside front cover *teased* us with a miniature description of the storyline...the problem is the publisher manipulates you into thinking this story features the main characters of Richard, Kahlan and soforth. The second reason is that of ALL the Terry Goodkind novels, this is the ONLY one NOT packaged as a Sword of Truth Novel on the front (of the hardback edition). WHY??? I'll TELL you why: what little we actually see of Richard contains nothing about the actual Sword itself. The third reason is the MAIN problem with the way the novel was packaged in the first place: It really moves the entire storyline nowhere. I may discover that to be incorrect after I finish the 11th and final novel (not out as I write this) but thus far, you could easily skip from Faith of the Fallen directly to Naked Empire and lose virtually NOTHING. I simply do NOT understand this type of departure from the main storytelling. I have since actually interviewed Mr. Goodkind and he is WELL aware of how this bothers a large number of his readers, and yet his explanation didn't satisfy my interest in the WHY he actually did it. Just imagine if George Lucas had decided instead of making Return of the Jedi, told a parallell story that took place within the Galaxy Far, Far Away, but not advancing ANY of the previous plot whatsoever and never including Luke, Leia, Han Solo and the droids except for the last 15 minutes ultimately giving us no real reason or desire to see the final chapter regardless of how entertaining it may have been.

With that said, I STILL enjoyed Pillars. It was well told, executed and kept my interest -- sometimes if only to continuously wonder where in the WORLD the main characters were? I liked the story of Richard's un-Gifted sister very much. That does not mean I didn't miss Richard and the rest, but felt it an odd departure and still do not feel that the novel *fits* into the saga as a whole. I enjoyed Soul of the Fire even less, but at least half of that novel introduced a situation that is critical to the on-going progression of the storyline.

Naked Empire *****

This was pure and simple Terry's effort to make up for how he disappointed us readers with Pillars. That may not be what Goodkind actually was thinking as he wrote this, but it certainly is MY opinion. In the midst of trying to handle the ever worsening war with the Order, Richard discovers a group of people who have cut themselves off from the rest of the world, seemingly on purpose, and quite literally refuses to defend themselves from the invasion of the Order. They are the pure definition of a pacifist -- times TEN. Richard becomes a bit preachy at parts, but that did not bother me the way it did others. When you actually DEAL with a committed pacifist, it takes a great deal of persuasion and repetitive speaking in order to gain any ground -- if any at all. A well-told tale that really did not advance the entire storyline much -- okay not at all, but at least featured Richard, which is really all most of us want anyway.

Chainfire *****

This was a slow starting story. But once the rubber hit the pavement, it took off with a burst of tremendous speed. The idea that some of the Sisters of the Dark could have the audacity to trigger a spell as far reaching and possibly earth-shattering as the Chainfire, well it is certainly one which is monumental in scope and amazingly creative as well and completely entertaining at the same time. The last 50 pages are as good as ANYTHING written by Goodkind, and more than that, I felt it was just about the best part of ALL of his novels period. The following novel I felt was JUST as compelling, but I already wrote about that in another review. Suffice it to say that when Goodkind is batting well, he quite literally hits home runs...some are Grand Slams, while others are just really really good, but twice he has hit a couple of fouls, one of which borders on an outright failure, but I'll leave that judgement call up to you. I still cannot wait for the 11th and final Sword of Truth novel to hit the shelves next year -- well at least I HOPE it comes out in '07...making us wait until '08 would certainly constitute a human rights violation, right?

2.0 étoiles sur 5 story needs to end 19 juin 2011

THe first three books are amazing, with fantastic characters and plot, but as with every book or movie that goes beyond its original stories it faces several problems. The first of which is after facing the keeper of the underworld fighting the Order is a huge step down and can't compete. The author has been forced to insert a ton of "miniquests" short stories thatadd no real value to the plot but give the characters something to do. The second is the characters like Richard become almost invincible. The third is more of a group of problems involving the author more than anything else. The best way to put this is in this statement. To Richard and Terry Goodkind get a room! The author has fallen in love with his own main character. In the story Richard can do almost no wrong and when he makes a mistake it is a stupid mistake that is easily fixed. Indeed although the enemy could be considered formidable in another book it no longer takes center stage in Richard's fight. He seems to now be a champion of Goodkind ideals and beliefs. While there is nothing bad about an author putting his own beliefs in a book, the books now seems to be made for that purpose only. I kept hoping the books might improve but the story just keeps becoming worse.

The first couple of books were great just stop there though. They fulfill the story and bring it to a great close. Goodkind is a good author I think he just got to attatched to these books.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great fantasy series continues 22 février 2008
Par Ash Ryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This set contains books 7-9 of Terry Goodkind's wonderful epic fantasy series The Sword of Truth: The Pillars of Creation, Naked Empire, and Chainfire.

The Pillars of Creation - 4 stars.
This is not among the best books of the series--some of the new characters are better than others, and some parts of the story more engrossing than others--but it is still quite good. I especially liked Althea and her husband Friedrich, and Tom. Jennsen is a mixed case, but more good than bad. Oba was a bit annoying. Sebastian is one of the best new Goodkind characters, good or evil (perhaps in this case not obviously either), in a long time. The section when he takes Jennsen to meet Emperor Jagang for the storming of Aydindril stands up to almost anything in the series thus far.

And, as usual, Goodkind's story illustrates important political and philosophical themes. Here we have a novel about the crucial need of, appropriately enough in light of 9/11, good intelligence agencies (though this is hardly an Ian Fleming novel), and more deeply of using your own judgment rather than relying on what others tell you is the right or wrong thing to do. A worthy message well told.

Naked Empire - 4 stars.
In Naked Empire, Terry Goodkind weaves a plot that, through the action of the story, illustrates increasingly deeper themes with great relevance to our culture today. Politically, and most superficially, it is a story about the hopelessness of the doctrine of pacifism for establishing genuine peace, but that it rather leads to tyranny. Ethically, it is about whether people are justified in fighting for their values by retaliating against physical threats to them, or whether it is ever proper to turn the other cheek. Epistemologically, it is about whether genuine knowledge comes by revelation from another world, or by reasoning about our perception of this world. And metaphysically, it is about the doctrine of mind-body dualism versus that of mind-body unity, and the results of accepting each. (There is even a bit about esthetics, though not nearly as a much as in Faith of the Fallen, in which the nature of art played a much more central role.)

As usual, the plot advances the stories of the characters and the world in which they live, and Goodkind's characterization is excellent (though Owen is a bit obnoxious at first, but not as bad as Nadine in Temple of the Winds).

Chainfire - 5 stars.
I would rank this book up there with Faith of the Fallen as the best book in the series so far. While not as explicitly philosophical as Faith of the Fallen (which, aside from Richard's first premature and out-of-place philosophy speech at the beginning, seamlessly integrated philosophy with dramatic action so that by the climax I was on the edge of my seat not in spite of, but because of the ideas involved), Chainfire cashes in on the reader's love for the characters, and their value to each other, that has been built up since the beginning of the series. The scene in which Richard contemplates suicide is particularly stunning. Publisher's Weekly's complaint that there's not enough action is shallow and stupid. Who needs sword fights when you've got drama like that? Besides, the "beast" that's after Richard is the best antagonist Goodkind has created yet.

A word about the box set itself: it would have made more sense to box Pillars and Naked Empire together with Debt of Bones instead of Chainfire; that way, when Confessor comes out in paperback, they could have done a fourth set consisting of the Chainfire trilogy (Chainfire, Phantom, and Confessor). But I suppose they will instead do Phantom, Confessor, and DoB for the last set, and it's a minor complaint in any case.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Bland selection of novels 7 août 2010
Par Darren Wade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
So by the time you've got to book 7, you will have noticed that Terry Goodkind has seemingly vastly reduced the page count of each novel. Well that is because I think he is losing interest and steam. The first book of this set is probably the worst in my opinion, and it is followed by what is probably the third worst. The best books of the series are possibly the first 3, but it has been a year since I read the third so I can't remember if it is as good as the Temple of the Winds. By this time, the books have become so repetitive that the only plot devices that have any challenge for his super overpowered characters, who have obviously leveled up too much and suffered from "Monty Hall" syndrome if you know RPG parlance, are immune to almost everything, except kidnapping and rape. It is a common theme throughout the series, but it gets old. And with the first book of this set, you lose focus of the main characters. Don't expect to see them much in this book. As with all of the other books, the author has to come up with some corny wizard's rule and they get progressively more corny as time goes on, so by these books, the rules are just plain dumb. He pulls some George Lucas and had to rewrite history to come up with extra stuff to write about.

Just a warning. Chainfire through Confessor are actually 1 giant novel without gaps or resolution between each novel.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Imaginative but Tedious in Places 8 janvier 2008
Par Charles Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Goodkind's series reminds one of Jordan's almost endless (though it has ended)serial. Although the first three books were fast-paced and attention-grabbing, Books 4-9 have long stretches of polemics against various social organization types (socialism, for example). All this philosophical preaching becomes very tedious so that I skipped about 25% of the text trying to avoid it. He works his characters into inextricable situations in each book but manages to save them at the last moment with sometimes very improbable turns of events. I gave the works 3 starts because they are imaginative; the world presented does have an inner logic, and he has interested me in the long-term exploits of Richard Rahl. Knowing what I know now, I don't know I would have started the long and expensive adventure.
