An extremely descriptive book to the extreme. With all of the continual discription it leaves little room for the story.
I read The Jerele Shannara about I 10 yrs ago & thought. it was excellent.
I thought he did an acceptable job with the material he was given.
I listened to The Sword of Shannara (the 1st in the series ) & hoped for improvement and I was sadly disappointed. And anger because I was hoping for so much more.
I listened to this book completely and attempted to listen a second time, hoping it was just my frame of mind. This series definitely did not improve with the 2nd. I consider this series a very sad waist of my time.
I will not attempt to read any more books in this series.
A book should flow easily. After listening to chapters 1-8 twice, I decided that was enough.
I truly tried but absolutely could not get into this book. I love a good syfi. This book was an unpleasant effort.
Part 2 downloads repeatedly. The section list part 1 & 2 though when sections opened only part 2 present.
I've always hated having a book//end of a trilogy ruined
I would not have cut anything, however I would have made sure the chapters were organized correctly.
Saddened. It would've been so simple. The 3rd book of this trilogy was divided into 4 sections. Unfortunately, the chapters of especially the 2nd & 3rd sections of this book were completely out of order. The 2nd section had some repeated chapters of the 1st section, which in its own right was not really that troublesome. I finished the 3rd section of the book and was so upset when I realized I had just finished hearing the last 3 chapters of the book/trilogy. Disturbingly I still had the complete 4th section. I had been anxiously awaiting to hear. I've never been the type of person to peek at the back of the book and thus ruin the story.
The story line keeps u sitting on the edge of your seat.
I haven't found a character I don't like.
Laugh, cry, and left me wanting more.
When will the next book be out?
The plot was odd, periods of being difficult to follow and a good section of the book was dull/boring. I finished the book only because I hate paying for a book & not completing it. I will admit if it hadn't have been an audio book I wouldn't have completed it.
I would not advise anyone to read / listen to it.
No, It just happened to be one bad apple. Afterall I did find Discovery of Witches worth the credit.
This book was not the narrator at fault, so yes possibly.
So very dissappointed, I enjoy a good cliffhanger, The first 3/4th of the book was very nicely paced, enjoyable, and allowing time for important details to come cleanly to the surface.Then the last 2-3 chapters of the book went into light speed and left the reader with "whiplash" and wondering what the "HECK" happened to cause the book to totally degrade. Shadow of Night left me quite disillusioned with this author.
A solid 9 with substance
Wizards First Rule, a magical universe that dtaws U
in & before u know it ur hooked.
Her quality of tone pulls you into the story to where you are no longer on the outside looking in.
