did not like it
Read in October, 2008

I have never read anything by Terry Brooks, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I was extremely disappointed in this book. It's just boring! The author has absolutely no character development. He tells you how the characters are instead of showing by thoughts or conversations. The little dialogue there is feels contrived. There is not a single memorable character. I am going to give The Sword of Shannara a chance, but I have little hope it will be any better than this prequel.
