As the name of my blog implies, there are too many good books out there and not enough time to read them all. I am what I describe as an emotional reader; I read books that fit my mood. Everything from Politics, Science, Classic Lit, Poetry, Short Story, Graphic Novel, you name it! I read it, if I'm in the mood. So for me to plow through thousands and thousands of pages by the same author, in a short amount of time, says a lot about that author's work!
What made my reading spree even more fantastical is that all 14 books were part of one over-arching story! Science Fiction heaven! Us Sci-Fi fans love our created worlds and rich characters and Terry Brooks' literary feat transports the reader right next to a bevy of characters.
Reviewing each one would just rob you of precious minutes that you could use to read Terry Brooks, so I will provide a real brief framework overview:
|The Elfstones of Shannara|
|The Sword of Shannara|
|The Wishsong of Shannara|
The Heritage of Shannara:
|The Talismans of Shannara|
The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara:
High Druid of Shannara:
I discovered 8 more novels, plus a graphic novel and novella, in this series as I was looking up the book jackets for this post. With that being said...I gotta get to reading!
