I just spent the past hour or so reading 70 of the most disturbing pages. I really wish someone had warned me about Wizard's First Rule. I had pretty much been reading for the love story between Richard and Kahlan because the good vs evil business with Darken Rahl seemed so tedious and unoriginal. Then Richard was captured and tortured by a dominatrix. For 70 pages. And because I had been reading mainly the love story, this just made me squirm and really came out of nowhere and seemed totally pointless. I mean, I have to admire Goodkind for evoking that strong a response but....ick. Still, take the good from the negative and I get a few pointers on how to make my uncomfortable chapter even stronger and more impacting.
