I enjoy science fiction and fantasy, but also am interested in homebrewing, anything crafty really .
huge fan of the shannara series .I am working my way through the series in chronological order . Probably not the way Brooks would recommend. enjoy
I just have to say, Terry Brooks is a great story teller! And Paul Gigante is a perfect compliment to it with his good command of different voices and accents. I keep thinking, this will be the last book I read and move on....
I am so not a fan of this guy trying to sing or do female voices, had to skip through a lot of that. Also not sure the point of reading the description of a laugh if you're just going to give your own poor approximation of it immediately after.
Excellent narration! He makes the good story even better.
Leaves off at a good please for a continuation. Ending is more pat than the other trilogy of his that I read. It's worth while reading first the trilogy with the gypsy morph to understand.
I am a Terry Brooks fan and I have read or listened to a majority of his books and I can usually count on an enjoyable story. I did not like this book because it is way to wordy. I wonder If he didn't have enough story to make a full length book and so added in some filler. I usually listen at 1 x normal speed. When I listened to this, I would often turn it up to 3 x speed just to get through the wordier parts. I could not wait for this book to finally end. The characters were very whiney, a trade mark for Brook's heroes, but these went over the top. I was quite disappointed.
The redundant descriptions and character wordiness.
The, pace was a little slow, and I'm wondering if maybe the Shannara series has seen its better days
Yes, I'm sure I will after having read I think nearly everyone of his books
Sadly none, but not the performers fault
It needs a quick conclusion
I really like the series and hope that Mr. Brooks can breathe some new life into it.
I'm the most boring person on the planet.
Not a bad listen, but don't expect this sophomoric conclusion to the Bear of the Black staff to be as good as it was. This is not within the top 50% of Terry Brooks' best works.
Phil Gigante does a great job.
The story was more than disappointing. Slow to start, dragged on and on, boring. The performance was mediocre at best. I expected more from Terry Brooks.
Absolutely. Most of his books have hit the mark and kept my interest.
Yes. His characters voices were ... irritating.
I couldn't listen to the whole thing. My mind wandered. I usually listen while working in the garden or doing house work and I found myself having to go back to re-listen because my mind wandered.
