Terry Brooks ´ 7 Review

Free download The Sword of Shannara Terry Brooks ´ 7 Review Characters é eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Terry Brooks E used only by a true heir of Shannara On Shea last of the bloodline rests the hope of all the races   Soon a Skull Bearer dread minion of evil forces flies into the Vale seeking to destroy Shea To save his home Shea must flee drawing the Skull Bearer after him in menacing pursuit   Thus begins the enthralling Shannara epic a spellbinding tale of adventure magic and myth  PRAISE FOR TERRY BROOKS  “Terry Brooks has been my constant companion over a lifetime of exploring my beloved fantasy genre I say with all honesty I would not be writing epic fantasy today if not for Shannara If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle” Peter V Brett New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear   “I can’t even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks’s books I’ve read and reread over the years From Shannara to Landover his work was a huge part of my childhood” Patrick Rothfuss New York T. ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy LiteratureThe Sword of Shannara was a very popular book back in the 70s right after the huge success of The Lord of the Rings when everyone wanted to read fantasy I wasn t old enough to read it back then so I came to it much later I read part of the first book and knowing how popular it had been and feeling like it was a classic I was prepared to enjoy it About half way through I gave it to my ten year old sonThe weird thing is it s so like The Lord of the Rings at the same time that it s not I don t mind a few common fantasy elements especially in works written before they were clich but Brooks plot and characters come almost straight out of Tolkien This may have been acceptable if the writing had come straight out of Tolkien too but Brooks style is clunky wordy and awkward Adjectives and adverbs are used without restraint I mean there are constant repetitive superfluous unnecessary redundant profligate excessive numbers of adjectives And did I mention the weirdly placed adverbs which are used unsparingly unrestrainedly extravagantly and immoderately And annoyingly When I couldn t care less whether Shea and Flick they re the hobbits I mean the heroes live or die then the characterization is weak Actually I was kind of hoping that they would die If they died the book would have to end rightConclusion These are fine for kids at least this one is I can t say if all of the later Shannara books are probably not But do you really want to teach them to write like that If not give them CS Lewis JK Rowling Susan Cooper and Lloyd Alexander To be fair This series is wildly popular Perhaps the writing gets better it has been 30 years after all I have heard that only the first book is too much like Tolkien But I ll never know for sure because I can t make it through the first one Read Terry Brooks reviews at Fantasy Literature
