Use this thread to voice your opinions about the Shannara series. I'll go first, since I started this forum. In my personal opinion, I don't think the Shannara series is now quite as impressive as it was before. Fantasy is much more common than it was before. I have read the first two books in the original Shannara trilogy, and am half-way through with the Wishsongs of Shannara. However, I have apparently lost interest in the series. I feel like I am too well acquainted with races that used to be uncommon in the 70's and the 80's. I grew up around fantasy and science-fiction all my life, and I'm apparently no longer impressed with notions of dwarves and elves, which have been recycled countless times.
