Judged purely on the merits of its story and not its themes, which as others say, are heavily entangled with ObjectivismThe Sword of Truth series is not bad but could be much better. It is truly a remarkable accomplishment considering that Richard was able to solve all the problems–the Imperial Order, the prestinely ungifted, the taint of the chimes, the sisters of the dark, and Kahlan’s lost memory–all in one swoop.
