    About "Terry Brooks"

      • Terry Brooks

        Terry Brooks was born in Illinois in 1944, where he spent a great deal of his childhood and early adulthood dreaming up stories in and around Sinnissippi Park, the very same park that would eventually become the setting for his bestselling Word Void trilogy He went to college and received his undergraduate degree from Hamilton College, where he majored in English Literature, and he received his graduate degree from the School of Law at Washington Lee University.A writer since high school, he wrote many stories within the genres of science fiction, western, fiction, and non fiction, until one semester early in his college years he was given The Lord of the Rings to read That moment changed Terry s life forever, because in Tolkien s great work he found all the elements needed to fully explore his writing combined in one genre.He then wrote The Sword of Shannara, the seven year grand result retaining sanity while studying at Washington Lee University and practicing law It became the first work of fiction ever to appear on the New York Times trade paperback bestseller list, where it remained for over five months.

    1. "Listen to me. Listen to what I have seen in my dreams. You will make your voyage across the Blue Divide in search of something precious - more to you than to any who go with you. Those who accompany you will be both brave and strong of heart, but only some will return. One will save your life. One will try to take it. One will love you unconditionally. One will hate you with unmatched passion. One will lead you astray. One will bring you back again. I have seen all this in my dreams, and I am m [...]


    2. Some might say that Terry Brooks’s work is formulaic, and they might be right. His series usually go something like this: There is a treasure/magic/evil thing that must be stopped. A druid holds special knowledge on how to do this. He gathers a group of people to carry out this mission. This group must include elves, a member of the Leah family, a dwarf, some humans, and an Ohmsford or two. Use of magic is dangerous and takes a toll on the user. There is a powerful and evil person who is tryin [...]


    3. Cambio di regia (circa) Brooks, intelligentemente, opta per qualche variazione all'interno del macrocosmo Shannara.Quello che ne esce, a conti fatti, è una buona partenza, ovviamente sorretta da qualche banalità narrativa per avviare gli eventi.L'impianto collaudato - compagnia di personaggi alla ricerca dell'oggetto X o del luogo Y - è felicemente sorretto dall'inserimento di misteri e ambiguità di fondo.Tale scelta narrativa mantiene alta la tensione (vedi le tappe alle tre isole) e fa da [...]


    4. 6/10I've had this on my shelf for a while now so in a conscious effort to try and clear the old books to replace with new ones I thought I would tackle this trilogy which had gathered large amounts of dust.The synopsis on the back of the book was appealing, a half drowned elf is found with his tongue chopped off and his eyes pierced but he holds a mysterious map to mysterious lands which hold magic of which the "world" has not seen before. Then add in the fact that to get to this land with mega- [...]


    5. This is a good fantasy book, it is very fun to read and has good imagery. If you enjoy fantasy then you'll most likely like this book. It is fairly easy to read but to not easy for advanced readers.I recommend reading any of Terry brooks' books. They are all very interesting and all throughout will keep you glued to the pages. In my opinion it is much better then a lot of fantasy books and if you're looking for a good series to read then this is a book for you. This is the first book of the Voya [...]


    6. Damit beginne ich einen weiteren Ausflug in einen der Klassiker der Fantasy. Dieses Buch, genauer eine Sammlung mit allen drei Romanen der Voyage of the Jerle Shannara, war am ehesten zur Hand, daher hatte ich auch damit angefangen, die Welt der Shannaras zu erkunden - auch wenn sich hinterher herausstellte, dass ich doch besser mit dem chronologisch ersten Buch begonnen hätte, da mir das den einen oder anderen Spoiler dazu erspart hätte. Trotzdem: Mir gefällt die Reihe bis hierher. Ich liebe [...]


    7. #18/29 in my Epic Shannara Quest.There had to come a time when Brooks' reliance on his formula of a druid seeking out an Ohmsford and manipulating him into undertaking a quest to save the Four Lands would catch up with him and it has in this book.In what is probably the best of the Shannara books (remembering that none of the pre-Shannara books had been published by that point), The Druid of Shannara, Walker Boh emphatically stated that the new druidic order he established would not be based on [...]


    8. The first in a trilogy this book is an introduction to a fantastical story. When an elf is found floating on flotsam in the sea with a map with mysterious symbols, a thirty year mystery is brought to light. The elven king's brother has gone on a expedition in search of ancient magic but never returned. Walker Boh, the last remaining druid persuades the current elven king to finance a new expedition. The people he has chosen to go with him have special skills of their own. The Ilse Witch also wan [...]


    9. The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara - Isle Witch is unlike other books by Brooks in that it opens introducing an element of the steampunk genre and this Brooks does very well. However, the book then becomes rather dull, even with the various quests there is really no serious danger or action involved and I was left feeling like I was just reading filler. However, the last 100 pages come with some plot twists and a moment that even feels a bit like you're reading Sherlock Holmes. I also appreciated [...]


    10. Where to start?Expecting the first book of a trilogy to be anything other than lead up was my own fault I suppose. Isle Witch starts with an interesting discovery, propels to a great adventure, and then stalls after about one hundred pages. Brooks tries to jump start the novel at a few dramatic/action-packed points which really aren't action packed or dramatic feeling at all. It's hard to believe that anything of great importance will happen to any of the important characters in the first book s [...]


    11. I was ready for some light reading after dredging through David Copperfield for the better part of November and December, and thought, "why not read some more of those Shannara books I used to read back in Jr. High?" So I did. The result? Lukewarm at best. While I certainly purchased "Isle Witch" as part of a trilogy, I still expected it to be largely a stand-alone novel. So it wasn't until after nearly 300 pages of the druid gathering the group together for an epic quest in search of some all-p [...]


    12. Brooks is such a good author and no matter how many times I read his books, I always enjoy them.This series takes place a hundred or so years after the last. A man is found floating near the shore, his tongue and eyes cut out. He carries a map and the ring of the ruling family of the Elves. Walker Boh, only Druid of the four lands, is asked to translate the map and finds that it points to the location of a powerful magic, far across the sea. So he sets about gathering a group to go find it, all [...]


    13. Since it's been 24 years since I last read a fantasy from this popular author, I thought I'd give him another go. This is the first book of a trilogy which finds a motley crew of adventures on a mission to find out what happened to an earlier mission and to recover some artifacts and hopefully get their greedy little hands on some new magic. There are elves, a druid, a seer, "Rovers" (like a gypsy), and all sorts of magic aboard the airship Jerle Shannara. It's an easy read but moves at a glacia [...]


    14. For those who love Terry Brooks this book does not dissapoint. The entire series takes the reader on a journey to the far reaches of the fourlands and beyond, and displays some of the most provocative writing in this series to date. The basic elements of a good Shannara tale abound, but the twists its twists and turns definately keep the reader from dozing off into rehersed repetition. It is a wonderful storyline, and it brings to light some of the practical dilemmas of a character whose persona [...]


    15. A re-read (maybe the fifth or sixth) of Ilse Witch, book one of the Voyage of the Jerle Shannara by Terry BrooksBrief Summary:As a Wing Rider is doing his daily flights over the Blue Divide, he spots a castaway. Turns out, the castaway was an Elf prince who set out 30 years prior to discover a forgotten magic across the ocean. Blind and mute, the castaway carries a map. When the Druid Walker deciphers the map, he brings together a ragtag team of warriors, magic-users and a young boy with a myste [...]


    16. Brooks really took a change of pace with this novel, as it's pretty clear from the outset that the trilogy is more or less an adventure on a whim. Sure, there are reasons for all the characters to be involved in the journey, but it's not an immediate need as in almost all of Brooks' other novels. It was quite refreshing to see the characters conduct a bit more planning and have a bit more preparation - as the successes seem more earned rather than luck. That, and Walker, one of my favorite chara [...]


    17. The Jerle Shannara books are somewhat refreshing but somewhat unfocused in terms of direction. I appreciate the efforts for Terry Brooks to take the Shannara series in a new direction, I'm not entirely comfortable with where he's taken the series so far.The concept behind the Jerle Shannara reeks too much like the Weatherlight from Magic: the Gathering fame. Maybe it's just me, haha.


    18. It's Terry Brooks. You know you'll be in safe hands when you read a fantasy novel by him. A bit of whimsy, wonder, magic, & daring adventure await. Elves, dark-beings, stones of power, a mysterious Druid, they're familiar and yet Brooks makes them entirely his own with each series he continues to write. :)


    19. Brooks once again hits a home run. Not only does he bring some humanity to a typically cold character, he also humanizes someone that appears quite detestable. I am admittedly biased with the Shannara world, as I have enjoyed the Four Lands and all of its tales thus far. I do not anticipate falling away from this world any time soon.


    20. the storyline was decent, but I felt like I had to force myself to read it after 3 chapters. I didn't end up finishing the book wasn't terrible, but it only gets 1 stars from me because it gives you no real motivatoion to keep reading.


    21. This book is really boring. I know Brooks plot is is signature (it never changes), so I was prepared for the whole 'druid turns up out of the blue etc etc'. but the storytelling is monotonous, the characters are boring and the whole thing drags on and on.



    22. The synopsis is very compelling, which led me to have some expectations that probably led to my disappointment. I think I was hoping for a different story style, because it seems all these Shannara books have the same style. Ilse Witch starts off really great, and I really felt the idea was fantastic. However, it seemed dull after the beginning, with characters that seem plain and boring. The characters I did care about just didn't live up to my expectations. Like I said in the beginning my expe [...]


    23. So last night I read that the audiobook I was reading for this was abridged, which means a lot was left out. This actually makes me sad because i feel like I miss so much. I'm going to reread all the books I've listened to that were abridged after I read all of his books to see how much detail I missed. But other than that, I loved the book! I'm happy to be back in the world of Shannara and seeing Walker again!


    24. The start of a new adventure ~ it's been quite awhile since I last read this series. It's nice to have a series with original thought and that which mentions aspects of history from the original books. Time for brother and sister to meet. :)


    25. The first in a trilogy and my suggestion is to read all the books consecutively. If you want to know more about my thought, check out my book blogterarychallenge.weebly




    26. OH MY GOD ! OH WOW ! let me just say that ending ?! fucking EPIC !okay, okay, deep breath, exhale and inhale, let's start from the beginninge book starts with a Wing Rider Hunter Predd finding, after thirty years, the half drowned body of the elven prince Kael Elessedil floating in the seas of the blue divide, the prince who led an expedition in search of a very old and powerful magic, an expedition in which no one survived until now, until the appearance of the half dead prince who has the poss [...]


    27. The Ilse Witch by Terry Brooks is the first fantasy book of a trilogy called the Voyage of Jerle Shannara. It takes place in a world with magic, elves, dwarves and powerful magic. The story starts when a castaway is found on the shores of the coast bearing a map with ancient symbols. Walker discovers that it is a map of what lays beyond the Four Lands, and a treasure that's magic is beyond comprehension. He begins to assemble an expedition to fly across the ocean on an airship but not without th [...]
