I'm not sure why, but Terry Brooks seems determined to crush the intelligence out of the world of Shannara. With each successive book the main characters make more ridiculous decisions and show even less foresight. When a fantasy book, which by definition has a wide margin for suspension of disbelief, leaves you thinking that you "can't believe" anyone would be that stupid, it might just mean the author isn't trying as hard to make the decisions plausible.
I've read or listened to every Shannara book up to this point. I'm giving him one more book to fix the trend. I can't keep reading a series in which the protagonists are complete imbeciles.
I am walking to my computer to get book to now, I only wish the books or longer they seem to end just when I'm getting into it.
The story is great but the heavy British accent takes a little getting use to, but not a negative. The drop in stars has to do with flaws in story I found but won't share to save the entertainment for others.
Anything terry brooks is a greatread
British easy clear
Definitely worth your time.
The narrator sounds like she should do professional lullabies. I couldn't listen for longer than 30 min at a time because she lacked the necessary animation and enthusiasm all great narrators exhibit.
No. It takes a ton of patience befor it even starts getting slightly interesting.
She lacks personality.
Nope. I've heard enough. It's too hackneyed of a story anyway. Give me characters that are unique.
Save your credits for something else.
Rosalyn Landor is absolutely spectacular as a narrator. The story is a good, well written piece of fantasy, not any new ground, but good all the same. This was an enjoyable listen and again, Rosalyn Landor was the star.
