    " Read it, and then stop. Just say NO to any additonal Shannara tales. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Johnny Brooks | 10/31/2011

    " I enjoyed the story, but not the writing so much. However I am willing to give the next installment a chance. Hopefully we will see some improvement in the writing and hopefully the story continues along as well as it has so far. "

    " It was a great book. I read it before a long time ago and wanted to read it again, but is it only the first part of the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jana | 4/23/2011

    " I got about half way through and lost interest. Too much hyperbole, too much deus ex machina, not enough character development, too much journeying for my taste. I guess I'm just not an "epic" fantasy kind of person. "

  • 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! "

    " 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. "
