    It was supposed to be released for September, but I haven't checked if that's true or not.

    A Dance With Dragons still hasn't been released yet unfortunately. I think Raymond E Feist takes the cake with number of books published. Don't know if the page count is greater then Goodkind. Took me two tries from start to finish to actually get through Goodkind's novels, always lost interest 75% of the way through. I voted no just for the sake of challenges need to be open in their subject to prevent alienating people from it. It's supposed to invite people to participate not push them away.

    Isn't Terry Goodkind soundly kicked by most people in the blogosphere? I seem to recall reading a very long thread on the Westeros forums that made daily fun of his characters and made me cringe.

    I've never read any of the books though and I understand they are very popular but I fear they're not for me. So I'd say no to this.

    No his characters and story are fine and interesting. But revisiting the same themes each novel and having this ascension of power that get larger with each novel and the main character unable to use them is kinda ehhh.

    I liked the costumes, especially the chick's. She always had cool stuff on The TV show was alright to watch but bugged me because it was just so weak compared to the novels. Still, fun to look at. I actually really enjoyed the first few books but burned out waiting. I'm with RecklessE on that because I almost always wait for the last book to be published. When I read I read like a starved animal and burn through the books until I'm done. Then I may not read for 4 or 5 months. The last thing I need is to get rolling and have to futz around waiting for another book to come out.

    Boy has this thread wavered off course or what?

    I wouldn't mind doing a map based on a book; though we've had contests like that before, I'm always up for another one... But I can't see doing one based on Goodkind's 'novels'.

    That's pretty much the way I feel about Goodkind. The guy is a misogynistic hack.

    That's pretty much what I had heard, and what 99% of online reviewers thinks about him. I was beginning to doubt my own memory though due to the disproportionate amount of fans in this thread.

    Hah, I know what you mean, but I am glad I finished it. I thought the 'ending' was more appropriate and satisfying than most people seem to, but you're right that the last three books dropped remarkably in quality and became painfully self-indulgent. I won't mention any details for fear of spoilers but for goodness sakes, get over yourself, King.
