Head Trip - State of Denial by shinga Head Trip - State of Denial by shinga
I'm going to get murdered for this, somehow. SOME ONE will be offended by SOME PART of this comic. But here's the real question... WHICH PART. :O omg.

And yes, Terry Goodkind does actually say that. That's why I made this comic. Because it's funny.

*blink* Woooow, the scary person who commented, kokoro13??? Kinda nuts. But higurashiXyoumi wasn't all that accurate either.

If you want a more neutral opinion, the first book was written alright; a little boring in places, the Confessor power thing was kind of easy to poke holes in, the main guy was kind of an idiot, and then there was a whole WTF pain and BDSM part in it that was weird and unnecessary in my opinion.....
It was pretty long, but I can get through 900+ pages in three or four days, so that's not an issue for me.
Despite those issues it was an okay read (and a library book, so it's not like I had to buy it to find out it was a solid 'meh').

Then I read the next one, and the next one, etc. I gave up around book four (or five, can't really remember), when the two main characters STILL kept having horrible gut wrenching things happen to them to keep them from fulfilling their EPIC LOVE. -__- It got old fast.

Aaannnd then I had a good long laugh when I heard a while back that Terry Goodkind had said this. Because, PLEASE, they are SO fantasy.*G*

Terry Goodkind is a fucked up loser who sells awful books to other fucked up losers. He's OBSESSED with rape. Every other page, there it is, in some awful new incarnation.
He IS a fantasy writer, but not just because he writes (badly) about wizards and shit: he is writing his own fantasies, disguising his violent, misogynistic fantasies as a plot. I hate writers like him, who say its social commentary, but you can tell they're getting off on it. Sorry. I've hated him since high school.

I've not read any of his stuff but had considered it before. But from what you say here, I'll happily avoid the hell out of it because ewww. :\

Sorry, I don't make it common practice to start flame wars or anything, but I would like to say that kokoro13's opinion (not fact, mind you) is rather misguided and I'm willing to bet she saw Stone of Tears' 900 hundred pages and now makes up excuses as to why she won't read the series. Please don't let her clouded judgement prevent you from reading what is actually a very well written set of novels. And no, there is not a rape every other page. Many of the villains do commit crimes of a sexual nature, but this is one of many things that set them apart from the heroes of the story and what they are trying to defend. It makes victory all the more sweet when they are defeated.
As far the whole fantasy thing goes, it's a bit deeper than "wizards and shit". So I think to call Terry a fantasy writer is to pigeonhole him. I'm sure he wants people to view his work as something a bit more than all that.
Sorry for ranting on your piece, I thought it was pretty funny actually.

I heard that Lucas doesn't actually pay much attention to the merchandise and stuff anymore. It would explain why the books went to hell. Jacen....:cries:

Everyone, even people who don't like rap, like Eminem. I ask you... WHY...? I've always hated rap and Eminem is no exception. He is not a good person either, just puts down others in his songs. Britney Spears is totally self-explanatory...

Oh God. Terry Goodkind really said that? .... What kind of author is he, then?
