Was wondering if any one else read terry brooks shannara series
and if you did what did you think of it, do you think they should
make movies about them. Witch one is your fav story by terry brooks.

I've read the a few. I've also read his other series, Landover, I think it's called. The first book in the Elfstones of Shannara series was kind of okay but I prefer the later books.

I've only read the The Original Shannara Triology and The Druid of Shannara , picking a favorite out of them is a tough call, but I think I enjoyed The Wish Song of Shannara , the most so far

You could say I cut my teeth on the series back in the day. Made it through the first Trilogy and the Scion series in rabid fandom before the internet was a thing. But I haven't been able to back into the series newer content. Wishsong is still one of my favorite fantasy books of all time.

I have, and I love them!!

I read the original trilogy when I was just a kid. I'm so glad the world of Shannara has continued to expand. In fact, I got one of the newest trilogies for Christmas from my father, and I quite look forward to reading it (In all honesty, I was hoping he would part with his David Eddings collection, but I guess I'll have to be patient for a few more years to inherit those books hehe)!

Furthermore, I have good news for you, in regards to your movie comment!!

Tah-dah!! I follow Terry Brooks on Facebook, so I can confirm I see such articles relatively often!! The world will know the greatness that is Shannara!! I hope they do it justice, because it was a series I dearly loved growing up!

I read the first 3 when the series came out and enjoyed them. They pretty much were the reason I bought the computer game when it came out. Glad to see we're getting a movie finally .

yeah read them long ago, after I finished david eddings first series. They were good, but kinda seemed just formulic after a while so I didn't read the later series.

I've enjoyed these books, but I think the earliest ones were the best. I also met Brooks in person years ago at a book singing, pretty cool.
