Having a female narrator distracted from the story in my opinion.
ok, mechanical, oh-hum
Scott Brick, Dick Hill and Phill Gigante made this series of books come alive, especially Scot Brick.
Nope, I found it kind of like the other books but without interesting characters
There was really nothing new, basically a new generation of uninteresting characters reliving the previous books.
I was slightly disappointed with this book. I love Terry Brooks' work; however, this one seemed to me to be really slow and lacking some of the storyline detail and finesse I have come to expect from Terry's work. It just seems a little too simplistic and predictable. I will reserve judgment of the overall story until I listen to part two. Also, although Rosalyn did a good job, it was difficult at times to tell the characters apart.
This story was very disappointing, certainly not worthy of Terry Brook’s stature. The characters were weak (weak characters and weekly developed as weak characters), the dialog was horrible, and the plot was, well… if you’ve ever read a Shannara novel before, you can probably guess the theme. I was especially disappointing at how inept the Druids were written to be. I will not move forward on this series. Lastly, and certainly not least, the narrator was the worst I’ve ever sat through; she sounded like an old English school mum, and her voice was only made worse when she tried to disguise it to voice other characters. I didn’t have a will-not-listen-to list before her.
The characters were very poorly developed, weak, and unable to complete a salient conversation.
Absolutely not. Never again will I sit through a reading of hers. Sorry, her voice just graded on me, the accent, made worse when she tried to disguise her voice for other characters.
All of them. Not worthy of a Terry Brooks book.
Very disappointed. In so many ways...
Terry Brooks is an amazing author. The Shanara series is one of my favorites, I'm glad he is continuing it. This is a story i have wanted him to write for a ling time.
Rosalyn is not a very good narration. Her voice is high pitched and annoying. i almost stopped listening and ordered the Kindle version. I hope the next book some one like Dick Hill or Scott Brick or Kate Reading is chosen.
I seldom recommend books. Like movies, they tend to be personal.
Yes, I have been following Terry since The Elfstones of Shannara was published. As long as he lives and writes, and I live and listen, I will be purchasing his works.
Not as well as other audible stories he has had published.
This is the first book of Terry's that I wondered whether he had a "ghost writer" helping him. The druids were cast as less than capable, the heroes unspectacular, the elves less than intelligent. The story didn't seem be coming from the same writer.
