He sounds like a broken record, repeating the exact same line over, and over, and over, and over again.
The writing is highly repetitious, and amateurish at best. A REAL editor would take one look at this book and laugh his ass off. There are numerous things that are expressed numerous times as though it was the first time.
Red banners denoting the blood shed during the war, for instance. This is repeated about three or four times, as though Goodkind forgot he'd already told the legend of magda searus what they mean.
Either that or he thinks we're all idiots and need to be told the same thing over and over again until it sinks in.
In one single conversation a character is compared to a vulture more than three times. In a single paragraph a map is referred to as "the map" seven freaking times.
The Legend of Magda Searus Series by Terry Goodkind
Does Goodkind just not know the meaning or uses of the word "it"? These are just a few examples, this book is RIFE with crap like this. Readers find the repetition to be highly annoying, and it makes us wonder if the writer has any skill at all.
The same exact conversations are repeated numerous times, and go on for ridiculous numbers of pages, repeating the same questions and answers over, and over, and over again to the legend of magda searus just take up space and add padding that the story really doesn't need.
I absolutely hate technobabble.
The Legend of Magda Searus Series
The weakest aspect of Goodkind's books have always been his explanations of how magic--prophecy especially, though all magic gets the treatment--works. If you want to tell me how your magic system works, by all means, do so.
But if you're going to instead give me eight pages of technical jargon that is utterly meaningless and tell me that it's an explanation on how your magic the legend of magda searus works, you're doing it wrong.
If, by the end of eight pages of explanation, I know as much about how things work as when you started, you've just wasted a great deal of my time, and yours. Technobabble is gibberish that is utterly meaningless to the reader, and it makes the writer look like he doesn't have the slightest clue what he's talking about.
If you're going to explain something, do it the right way, the legend of magda searus actually tell people how something works.
Don't go on for pages, and pages, and pages spewing meaningless gibberish about star alignments and calculations that makes little to no sense to anyone involved. It utterly removes anything magical from things that are supposed to be magical.
The First Confessor: The Legend of Magda Searus - Wikipedia
I'd say that at least one tenth of this book's word count is completely meaningless technical jargon trying to explain away the workings of magic, if not more. I get that you want it the legend of magda searus be realistic, but technobabble is NOT the way to make it real.
It may sound cool to you as the writer, but the reader is just going to be scratching his or her head and rolling their eyes over it. And when the legend of magda searus goes on to ridiculous length, becoming the main focus of half the book, you're going overboard.
The First Confessor
Technobabble is not an explanation, it's a load of meaningless gibberish that no one wants to read. If you're going to give an explanation The chapter breaks in this book are ridiculous. This book is probably somewhere around k words in length, and it's got over a hundred chapters in it.
