Not so much

I was disappointed from the very beginning. They have taken out some key factors from the book for god knows why. At first I figured it was to make the show last, but as the show went on it just disappointed me more and more. As a show it is fine, but as far as being true to the book, it is far from that. I'm sure the author is pissed, I would be if someone trampled all over my work like this. As I said earlier, I thought they were just trying to prolong the story. But they have given away huge secrets and major plots and they are not even 10 episodes into it. Plus there are too many big muscle fights, and none of the much needed sexual tension that was in the book. Plus a huge factor of the book was trust and secrets kept. And Kaylin, don't get my started about her. They have turned confessors into a joke. The danger presented by her is barely in the yellow zone. Ugh, it makes me mad just thinking about it.

For peopel who haven't read the series yet, the show is pretty cool and i like to watch it, but if you've read it and everything makes you say "what the hell is this!" then i would totally understand because it's very sad to see a loved series trampled like this, but it's still a good show from my POV.

Oh yeah, it's a good show. I just hope that chocking action every time they mess something up goes away... but I'm still watching the show. Mostly cause I love Sam!

somehow i doubt Terry Goodkind is pissed about this show seeing as he is intimately involved in its making. Sure they left out a bunch of stuff, but as someone who has read the books many times i find this show highly enjoyable. If you expected a word for word translation to TV well, obviously that couldnt happen. I think they have done a good job of keeping many important aspects and at the same time opening the show to those who havent read the books. If you want 100% accuracy just read the books, but this show is pretty awesome. plus Kahlan is gorgeous which always helps.
