    Lifelong friends, they went their separate ways. Now they are together again, though each holds secrets from the others in his heart. They speak of a world shadowed with rumors of war. They speak of tales of strange monsters, creatures of myth, creatures of legend. They do not speak of their secrets. Not then. Not until a chance encounter with a beautiful, sorrowful woman, who bears a magical crystal staff, draws the companions deeper into the shadows, forever changing their lives and shaping the fate of the world.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have been collecting Dragonlance novels from the time they first came out in 1980's, fantastic stores, I have event read them to my son when he was little. However, I was disappointed in the narrator Ax Norman. He struck me as plain and boring. He did little to bring the characters to life, by changing voices or tone. If you listen to the original audio cassette tapes, each character came with a differences in voice and tone. Sadly not so for Ax Norman. Roy Dotrice would have been a better choice. Otherwise fantastic sires.

    Long ago, the wars of the ancient Evil ruined the world. In peaceful Shady Vale, half-elfin Shea Ohmsford knows little of such troubles. But the supposedly dead Warlock Lord is plotting to destroy everything in his wake. The sole weapon against this Power of Darkness is the Sword of Shannara, which can be used only by a true heir of Shannara. On Shea, last of the bloodline, rests the hope of all the races.

    Would you try another book from Terry Brooks and/or Scott Brick?

    I purchased the Shannara Series. Now I wish, I had not. I got to the point I was skipping chapters and felt I had not missed anything of any importance’s in the book. I have never done that in the several hundred audible books I have.
    The narrator did a fine job. The story just seem to drag on and on and on.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Teddy says: "I hate it when this happens"
    "Not as good as the first two."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story drags on and on, over boring drama. By the 12th chapter, I just wanted the book to end.
