5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic then and now, 11 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Elfstones Of Shannara: Shannara: Book Two (Kindle Edition)
I first read this book 25 years ago when I was 13 years young.At that time I was just discovering fantasy and this book drew me In so much that I have never let go.
The Sword of Shannara was my first introduction to the genre and I loved every page.Fantasy -I was hooked.
However this book was just amazing for me and was a standout fantasy of my teenage years.

So here I am 38 years young and no longer a lover of shall we say young hero fantasy novels. I like my George R Martin,David Gemmell basically anti/adult heros. So could I reread and and enjoy a book from my teens.

YES YES YES. Superb.

Where the Sword was a basic rehash(and better book by the way) and easy read of The Lord Of The Rings this is a stand alone superb bit of fiction.

I have read hundreds of fantasy books in the last 25 years as the genre has changed dramatically this book went from my favourite all those years ago to still stay firmly in my all time top 10 and rereading it has not changed that fact.

A one off
A classic
