This is my first Terry Brooks and I was a little hesitant going in. One of my good friends had recently skewered Swords of Shannara and I thought I might be stepping into a pile of crap. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this story. It was light and fun and I had a good time reading it. Maybe Brooks got better as he continued to write or maybe this story just hit me at the right time. Whatever it was, I liked this.

Joseph While The Sword of Shannara definitely had a lot that was similar to Tolkien's writing, you have to remember that EVERYONE did back in the day. Toward the end of Sword of Shannara, you begin to see that Brooks has his own distinct voice, even if he used Tolkien as a stepping stone. His later Shannara books are really good, and I hope you give them a try, even if in the long run you find that they aren't for you.
