you just made my day. we now have even more proof that goofkinds books should be burned. now normally it would pain me to condone the burning of books but in this case i really don't mind. ;D ;D ;D

I don't believe they should be burned, I'm not really a fan of destroying any kind of literature, however.  We really only need one copy in the world. :D

Goodkind's new book, The Law of Nines, is in fact a Sword of Truth novel, just set a few hundred years later in Orden, Nebraska (seriously), with some characters crossing over into the 'real' world from Planet Rahl.

 

It is excruciatingly bad.

Lol....It's actually the story of Richard and Kahlan's great great.........grand daughter(who is in magic land) and jensen(sp?) rahl's great great............grandson(who is in no-magic land) or so i've read on wikipedia.

The silmilarties between the Confessors & Aes Sedai, both male and female, and the fact Richard was raised in a small village like Rand was.

Oh... well the books came out right near each other, time wise.

There was 4 years between the books. Eye of the world was published in 1990, and Wizard's first rule in 1994.

I have a feeling we could find quite a lot of stories that begin with farmboys and/or orphans raised in small villages and/or towns.

 

So if you insist on that argument, I'm going to say that George Lucas should be getting royalties from both of them, as Luke Skywalker was the epitome of the "orphan farmboy raised in a small village".

No, Homer should be getting royalties from all of them he is the father of modern fantasy. :P

Do not mention that show.

 

I read and liked the books but the program took, if I may be so bold, Richard's balls.

 

He is not nearly as ruthless as he is in the books, non of them are, even Cara.

 

But Kahlan and Cara are hot.

I do not read the series, but just by watching the television show, I see a lot of the same plot as WoT.  Pretty good TV show though.  I love Cara and Kahlan.  Both are Hot!

Darken Rahl, book = father, show = brother

Sisters of the Light: book = evil and corrupt, show = friends of Zedd

Book of Counted Shadows: book = paramount to the entire series, show = destroyed by fire in the first episode

Deanna: book = Richards lover/torturer for months, show = Richards torturer for 10 mins.

Shota: Book = scary witchwoman, show = Some crazy lady with prophesies that Zedd believes but never does anything about.

Boxes of Orden: Book = Paramount to the story (all 12 books), show = destroyed in the last episode of the show, DESTROYED!

Kahlan: Book = Last confessor and mother confessor, longest hair in midlands (way past her waist), show = not last confessor till season 2 AND not mother confessor till season 2, AND has short hair.

Cara: Book = Richards loyal body guard, long braided hair, show = short hair, trying to be Richards lover.

Sword of truth: Book = turns green/red/white. Show = No colours other than red just recently for "rage".

Boundaries: Book = went down in the first book, show = boundaries are still UP!!!

 

HuntSeat go read the books, really do that. I don't mind the books, but the show is based in the same universe, with same names nothing else even closely matches. 

 

Also, NICCI SHOULD HAVE DIED AT ALL IN THE NEXT ELEVEN SEASONS

SPOILER FOR THE SHOW

She isn't dead. She's recast and will come back in episode 13 or so I read.

 

Anyway as for the difference between book and TV show, there are tons more like

Total absence of distinction b/w additive and subtractive magic.

how the first book/season ended.

total absence of mord-sith breath of life in books.

Richard and Kahlan should have been together by now according to the books.

etc etc etc

Well I meant to say shouldn't have... but anyway. I am going to submit myself to be playing Nicci. I'd do a better job.

I'm sure there was some ancient Mesopotamian who was writing fantasy well before Homer was born! ;) Plus you then have the whole "was Homer a real person" debate in the Classical world...

 

^^ what he said.  And I'd like to place more emphasis on the word "hot".

 

Definitely agree! I will now disappear into a world where only Bridget Regan exists!
