October Books 13) The Sword of Shannara

13) The Sword of Shannara, by Terry Brooks

Got this as one of the few remaining books on this list, and gave up after page 100. It's basically a Tolkien knock-off, with nothing much original or interesting that I could detect.

Many of my friends raved about it when I was at school (lower years, 12/13ish) and I think I picked up one of his other books, tried to get into it and came to a similar conclusion. Except that that was 'too like Tolkien', which at the time I didn't like that much.

Regardless, there are many fans of epic high fantasy, and some of them will buy into anything. Including Terry Goodkind.
