I’ve started reading The Sword of Shannara. Re-reading, I should say, and it might even be the third time. It holds up, and is as gripping now as when I first read a beat-up copy from the school library at Florida High School in 1982.
40 years later, Terry Brooks is still telling stories, but these are the ones – the original trilogy – that I keep coming back to. There are passages that I remember from the first time, and others that are new again.
I’m looking forward to this new old adventure.
