Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/12/2014

    " My brother's favorite book of all time, but I prefer his later series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tre Pryor | 2/12/2014

    " Great starter series for those new to scifi and youth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale Bazan | 2/6/2014

    " Not quite Sword, but a good fantasy. Another example of an epic where I lost interest to continue with the series past 2-3 books. But a good fantasy series. Just doesn't have the linguistic capacity of "Greatness." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alaina Stanford | 2/5/2014

    " This book was my first experience with Terry Brooks. It was very exciting and easy to empathize with the characters. I was drawn into the saga instantly and found myself eager to rush to the next book. I entered the world of Terry Brooks at this point and have not been dissappointed yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh | 1/25/2014

    " I enjoyed this story and had trouble putting it down. It was a great example of ultimate sacrifice! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse Davis | 1/19/2014

    " This is one of the greatest books of all time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chrismpadgett Padgett | 1/16/2014

    " loved this series when I was younger! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/15/2014

    " I read this the first time when it first came out in paperback. I remember enjoying it until I came to the ending. I enjoyed reading it just as much this time, but the ending wasn't so bad since I knew what was going to happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chichi | 1/12/2014

    " I read this book without reading the book 1, and i was able to keep up easily! If you love a good fantasy with Elves, Trolls, Humans (duh) and Druids, this is for u! I plan on going back to the very beginning and reading up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Buckhorn | 1/6/2014

    " More original than the first book in the trilogy, it still drew too many paralles to Lord of The Rings for my liking. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyle | 12/15/2013

    " This is the kind of stuff I read and don't tell anyone about... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raven | 12/12/2013

    " Another great book in the Shannara series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey | 12/4/2013

    " As I have read Shannara Books, the elftsones have been a fixture to almost all of them. These powerful stones gave the Shannara bloodline the power to change their course of history. To me, the elfstones are what Terry Brooks gave life to fantasy readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Marquart | 11/24/2013

    " Even better than book 1 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Troy | 11/24/2013

    " Almost as good as the first in the trilogy. Recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Woodge | 10/18/2013

    " Was okay in 1984, but hey, that was some time ago. I don't really remember that much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia Diaz | 9/16/2013

    " The ending seemed a bit rushed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle | 7/1/2013

    " Great adventure for a pre-teen getting into fantasy... I think this series brought me fully into the fold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gloria Sanders-Williams | 5/19/2013

    " In my favorites to read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darren | 3/21/2013

    " My first fantasy book that was given to me by my Mother in 1989...and I'm glad she picked it up! Brooks has had a special place on my bookshelf ever since then. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 1/26/2013

    " This book was totally awesome -- haha!!! Seriously, a great book, better than the previous one in the series. Couldn't put it down! Terry Brooks did a great job continuing the story and expanding on this world. Great character development too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Misty | 9/10/2012

    " Dan and I read this together. It was entertaining and I'll read the other books in this series with him, but probably wouldn't on my own. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 6/23/2012

    " This is one of my favorite series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Istiani | 4/11/2012

    " I think this book is better than the first book in the trilogy. More heroic, more stunning, especially there are two heroines here, Amberle and Eretria. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gemma | 1/30/2012

    " A little better than the first one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Holst | 10/2/2011

    " Sci-fi stuff that filled my childhood. Big fan of the Shannara series as a kid, this being the second. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 9/29/2011

    " Not as epic as Sword but still an excellent read. Brooks delved more into character introspection (a continued trend in his works.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Chua | 9/2/2011

    " Book 2 of the ORIGINAL Shannara series (since there's so many coming out these days!) I read this back in high school and remember liking it quite a bit. Fantasy lovers could do worse. Kick back and enjoy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 J.M. | 4/24/2011

    " Read in middle school. This was one of the first fantasy series I ever read and probably the one that got me onto an epic fantasy kick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 3/27/2011

    " The whole time reading this I kept getting reminded of "The Lord of The Rings" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Have Mercy | 2/2/2011

    " This book is amazing. I highly recommend it to any avid fantasy reader such as myself. It is a beautiful world that Terry Brooks created with elves, druids, and so on. It's a definite must have. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 1/13/2011

    " The last book was the best in my oppinion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jaygeekay | 12/8/2010

    " Absolute torture reading this. A boring, clichéd, badly written Tolkien rip-off in every sense. Absolutely dire. I would rate it lower than one star if it was possible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 7/21/2010

    " Read these many many years ago ... now I'm gonna have to re-read them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Flip | 6/26/2010

    " Spectacular stories. I loved reading these. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda | 6/4/2010

    " I give up. I tried hard to get into this book...but it seemed like a giant Lord of the Rings rip-off--except I couldn't care about the characters in this case. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 5/5/2010

    " Terry Brooks is one of my favorite authors of fantasy. His worlds are vivid and he keeps me guessing the whole way through. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tia | 3/4/2010

    " This is a three in one deal and thus far I've only read the first one. It sucked.

    When/If I decide to read the next two I will update. "
