Over a year ago they were raving about Terry Brooks, an author from the Northwest. He is a fantasy writer, I was into the movies but not sure how I would feel about reading this stuff.
From the first chapter of "The Sword of Shannara" I was HOOKED. I can't even call this a series, it's a world of it's own. Each book is about 300-700 pages, there are 17 books (I thought it was more) but still I'm on the last book after a year of reading.
I may have a breakdown when I'm done which will be either tonight or tomorrow.
Thank you Terry Brooks, seriously such an amazing author. I can look forward to starting another series I guess, I think I need to read the Twilight books again :)
