Honestly, the first trilogy...

Sword, Elfstones and wishsong I think, are the worst books he's written. BUT! <br> <br>It does get better. Starting with the follow-ups (the heritage 4), the voyage of the jerly shannara (3), and the High druid (3), his books are really good. <br> <br>His Word/Void series is excellent, too. <br> <br>Lokain is right, though, Hobb's stuff is really good. So is George RR Martin's. <br> <br>I've read most of what there is in Fantasy, so Feel free to ask more

I heartily recommend anything by Terry Pratchett.

I would recommend Thief of Time to start with~

ExPaladin 253 November 04, 2007 04:00PM

I loved the Shannara series when I was younger.

Canticle for Liebowitz is the greatest post-apoc book.
