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.
Very well read entertaining book. Terry Brooks is a very good writer and I would recommend all of his work. Scott Brick is awesome in his ability to tell the story and makes it very entertaining.
I have never read a Terry Brooks book I didn't like and they are particularly well suited to audio. Scott Brick is one of my favorite readers and he does a great job in all the Brooks books he reads. Listen to them all!
I thought that this was a great book. I liked it much more than sword of shannara. The plot was better and I thought the characters were developed better. I think that Brooks is a great author and look forward to finishing this series.
good chick book
the metamorphosis of amberle
when wil went back to his lady, the tree
yes, it made me cry a couple of times, i was very involved in the story.
i could start 10 other books but i am hooked on this series and am ready for wishsong. i am also thrilled that mtv is producing the series, should have been done long ago, i love game of thrones but it's too graphic for my granddaughters but the shannara series is absolutely perfect for them.
The repetition gets boring
Maybe, depends on the friend
Yes this writer is very long winded, seems to use 50 words when 10 may do the repetition gets boring
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.
After reading the first book in the series, which was complete Tolkien plagiarism, I was very hesitant to listen to anything else in the Shannara series. However, after about an hour into the "Elfstones", I found myself captivated by the story. There were some similarities to Tolkien, but, for the most part, this book showed a clear divergence from LOTR. Not to leave the review on that backhanded compliment, I will write that if you are a fan of the genre, this is a worthwhile listen.
Scott Brick is NOT a good fantasy narrator, but once you get over his annoying and seemingly constant (Brooks writes in extremes) "ANYTHING" inflections, the story keeps you interested enough to continue.
Low. I started this book after reading the Iron Druid Chronicles, and the narration in that book is so well done. So interesting and varied. It was hard to tell in this book when the narrator was describing a meadow or a battle scene.
There were no variations for different speakers and the whole thing was a bit dull.
The actual book, Lord of the Rings, probably.
Epic fantasy in a big world with lots of description.
Very, very boring. The story was probably very interesting but the narration was awful. Rather dull and with no arcs, just the same all the time.
I think that I liked this book more than the first one. The story moved a little better. I do not care for what MTV did to the story. it turned it into Shannara meets Twighlight. Stick with the original.
