Rather the reverse. I do think there's potential in a movie adaptation though. Filter out some of McCaffrey's weird hangups and just focus on the intrinsic badassitude of the premise.
Great series, and Use of Weapons is probably my favorite of them.
Read them as a teenager. A couple years back, I picked one up again and started reading... couldn't get through the first chapter. Forget the contentious politics or the implausible plotting, the prose was just plain excruciating. I feel kind of bad saying that, since Goodkind apparently overcame severe dyslexia to write, but... yeah.
