    Good but could have been Better

    This was a good book but there were some parts that could have been left out. I don't want to ruin it for you but there are a couple parts at the end that are pointless and completely ruin the point of the whole section of the series. You may like it but I thought it kind of ruined the point of the story. I admit there were some good parts and some funny parts but I'm still mad about the end. I still do recommend this book because overall it is good and it has a great plot.

    This is a must read for anyone following the Shannara series.

    Another home run by author Terry Brooks. I have read almost all of the Shannara books and loved them all.

    Just a great book

    Straken is a great book (obviously by the title). It had a beautiful and poetic ending. That may make it sound cheesy, but the rest of the book was really good. The only problem I see with this book is that Pied Sanderling really didn't have anything to do with the rest of the story. But The Moric was awesome. I'll tell ya, The Moric was one of the best pieces of the story. I highly recommend this book.

    Another reviewer

    I first discovered Terry Brooks in 1978, when 'The Sword of Shannara' came out in paperback '$2.50!'. Does he rip off Tolkien? Of course. Then again, so do most other fantasy authors. Nevertheless, he writes one hell of a novel, with great characters, and I look forward to each new novel that comes out. 'Straken' was no exception. Keep on writing, Mr. Brooks! You liven up a slow, rainy day 'or any day I have a chance to pick up a book', as well as, or better than, many other authors. May the Ohmsford line live on!

    Very Good Not What I Was Thinking It Would Be

    I first picked up Straken because I love the author. I was hesitant to start it because I had felt the frist two books had been lacking qualities I wanted to have in a book. As I finished chapter one I had completly forgave Brooks. Though it get slow in a few parts that didnt make it anyless exiting. All in all it was a good book but it could have been better. Sertain parts towards the end seemed hurried but the very end made up for them.

    Enjoyed the book, but felt something missing...

    I enjoyed the book very much. I was rather dissappointed about how certain things were resolved and I felt I was left hanging on a few 'storylines'. But overall, I was still 'pulled' into each chapter, not wanting to stop reading until I was finished with the book.
