I typically do not listen to books like this but it was suggested by a friend & I loved it. It's a little gory at times but the whole story is one of holding onto your faith no matter what.
A great start to another great series
Terry Brooks Shanarra books
Great narrator..... Great performance
Great book...beginning to end
Definitely worth a credit
The narrator's voice was very annoying. It seem like everyone was either a whining wuss or a "brotha" from the street. The hero sounded wimping and whiny. I could only picture some poindexter with glasses holding a staff, not my ideal portrayal of a hero.
Good start to the series. Was disappointed with the reader (Audible) as it was like listening to Capt Kirk and he would end sentences so soft and low, I could not hear what he was reading! Luckily the next book in the series is a different reader.
Great book content and story.
Very dissapointed in Reader. Avoid all Dick Hill Narrations! He doesn't take the time to learn how to pronounce the names of key book Characters. It really put me out but if it wasn't for book content and being Terry Brooks book I would not have listened beyond the first 10 minutes.
Slow to start but picks up and becomes very exciting. Great story teller with interesting and nicely developed characters. Would highly recommend.
Terry Brooks has woven an apocolyptic series which is maddening to this reader. Although he has done a fine job, there is no finale to the book. It is a cliff hanger and meant to keep you coming back for more. Sorry, but this reader isn't biting.
This is about the 3 book series. I remember starting to read The Shannara series 30 years ago and enjoying it. But I was an adolescent then. This new 3 book series is entertaining but it really is for adolescence as well. The sad thing for me is it is repeative of the boy/man savior of humankind. Not only is there one savior, but two. Both male. Only a couple of the characters have good development. The females are just supporting roles without depth. When you compare this series to a fairly new writer like Brandon Sanderson's series (which can also be read by young adults) - it seems amateurish. I guess I was hoping Terry Brooks would have gotten much better after 30 years.
For an adult book this is 3 stars, for young adult it could be 4 stars because it is interesting.
