I think he has a lot of sexual frustration, dislike for women and sadism. He talks about it way too much and spend way too much time describing it over and over. Okay, we get it. If women get out of line, they'll be given over to the emperor's army.

This is actually what made me start reading his stupid repetitive story again. I like fantasy novels but I had given up on this series because I got sick of how perfect Richard and Kahlan are, the endless preaching, their sappy love and moping, etc. Give me magic and fighting. Not some pussy who keep crying about how his life revolves around his woman. Haven't been able to read much because of school over the last couple of years due to lack of self discipline in that if I pick up a book, I don't put it down to the exclusion of all else. Have some more free time now in my last few months since I'm just interviewing and waiting to graduate so I downloaded the first episode and watched it. Made me feel like finding out how this stupid story ends. Right now I'm just speed-reading through the whole thing and skipping over the endless monologues and repetition. Fuck, we get it!!! Anyway, they changed it a lot and I haven't bothered watching the other eps although I downloaded them in case I'm bored one day and have nothing better to do.
