its a great book the story keeps you wantting to listening to find out what happens next,
the way the book ended.
no favorite liked all the characters.
great book love all the books in the Shannara series
The story. While it did drag in a few spots I really appreciate the example of self sacrifice that many of the characters make for the greater good.
Lord of the Rings trilogy for sure. The influence is obvious in many parts but still an enjoyable book.
He was kind of whiny in some parts when speaking dialog.
Only to find certain details as reading further on in the series
When Shea first tried using the Elfstones and had to dig deep within himself to get them to work.
He creates such vivid characters just with his voice. It truly brings to life the different characters fleshing them out to where you can visualize them by their voices.
It really kept my interest
excellent storyline with a good pace and identifiable characters plus some mystery and irony.
Alanon, he is mysterious and misunderstood and he carries his guilt quietly. His magic is also formidable.
yes, he is a competent storyteller although not as exciting as some narrators.
it was a good listen and i am glad i heard it.
An extremely descriptive book to the extreme. With all of the continual discription it leaves little room for the story.
I read The Jerele Shannara about I 10 yrs ago & thought. it was excellent.
I thought he did an acceptable job with the material he was given.
I listened to The Sword of Shannara (the 1st in the series ) & hoped for improvement and I was sadly disappointed. And anger because I was hoping for so much more.
I listened to this book completely and attempted to listen a second time, hoping it was just my frame of mind. This series definitely did not improve with the 2nd. I consider this series a very sad waist of my time.
I just achieved App Scholar!! 1000 hours in 1 yr 7 mo and 10 days!!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
I can't say enough about this series,WOW!!! I've read the first two books in this series and they are great!! Action packed from start to finish..if you are looking for a great fantasy series this is the one... Can't wait to get started on the third book!!!
The narrator of this book was amazing. He perfectly captured the characters and the intense moments in the book. This
My favorite character is Allanon. He is timeless and powerful!
Yes, it made me sad, it made me frustrated, it made me excited and made me wanting to keep listening!
I love brooks novels, but I plan to stick with reading them if this narrator is my only choice.
Yes. To reread this series the old fashioned way.
I also enjoy classics and think Brick does a good job with those.
When I read the book I really enjoyed it, however I could not take the narrator and had to stop listening to the book. He uses the exact same cadence for every sentence, excitement at the beginning and fading almost completely by the end. It actually becomes rather droning. Even though he changes inflection, it doesn't go with what is happening in the story. It'll put you right to sleep, if it doesn't annoy you too much first.
I love this series. But I am really tired of this narrator, Scott Brick. These books read so easily when you read them in hardcopy. The characters are fun, and you get involved in the storyline. This guys narration is just grating. If you only listen to books on audio then go ahead and listen. Just have to ignore the narrators tone, silly cadence, and emphasis on every single line.
