I wasn't really into "Sword of Truth". I've seen some episodes of TV Series and it wasn't impressive. Friend gave me this one as he is a big fan and strongly recommended it to me.
I gave it a chance and it was much better than I thought.
Book isn't perfect or course. I don't know if it's because of my prejudice or it's just how it really is so bear in mind that this is only my opinion.
I was confused especially at the beginning how easily main character switched from being the woods guide to being the "Seeker". I was thinking about it all the time.
I don't know if I should know from the beginning who is going to betray him, i think not, but I knew it...
Still I really like the book and it was gripping :)
