Fantasy Fridays: The Sword of Shannara
I was hungry for fantasy. I remember reading the sword of Shannara at my uncle’s cabin. In between excursions into the woods and forays out onto the Chippewa Flowage I would pour through the book.
It was derivative. The Hobbit-like protagonists, the Gandalf character, the thinly veiled shadow of a plot meant to evoke LOTR. I remember Jon Lin Sandor the Elvin hero of the book.
