Not sure what to say?

To his family I offer my condolences. I marvel at his amazing talent for bringing little common nuances into the height of battle and action. One minute we are racing to or from battle the next an inclusion of some surrounding common attribute of scenery, sound or person. I marvel at each paragraph I read how the scene is set with descriptions of the fictional characters, towns and beings in this world he created. I've re-read his collection of books many times. I will miss his new book...

Terrible Loss of a talented man. They should bring back the tv series legend of the seeker in his honor. He will be missed

i named my son Richard after Richard Rahl..........................

I enjoyed the entire Sword of Truth series. Thank you for the hours of entertainment. Rest in peace.

So sad to hear of his passing. I enjoyed al of his books, reading his sword of truth series twice. I was just looking for his next book...

I didn't realize that Terry had passed until tonight (02/20/21) when I was surfing for his next novel. Now, I'm sitting here in my bed with tears running down my face. I loved his books and read his Sword of Truth series several times, taking them into my heart and making them part of my life. He will be greatly missed.

Terry Goodkind became my favorite author when I was gifted "Pillars of Creation". I read it not realizing it was part of a large and amazing series until I was done with the book. I went back and started from the beginning and never looked back. He brought me into his amazing world and I've read it over and over again. You're amazing imagination will be missed. You're family will be in my thoughts.

Mr. Goodkind inspired my love of reading when I was gifted a Wizards First Rule at 14, I have followed and read his Sword of Truth books ever since. It saddens me that such an epic author has left us. RIP Mr. Goodkind.

I really enjoy reading his stories they took me away from this world for a little while i was surprise and sorry to hear of his passing he could really write a page turner book great aruther Judy Newman
