holy smokes I am freaking excited. After reading The Sword of Shannara years ago, I said that it was better than Lord of The Rings and would make a better movie. Now I am finally reading The Elfstones and once again this is the best book I have read in years. I came across this article stating that Jon Favreau and two creators from Smallville will be working with Brooks to make a tv series.YAY!!!! Even better!
Okay, so it's a teen book. It's in the fantasy genre. It's a gazillion times better than Twitrash Saga. So what.. it's a great summer evening read, when you want to wind down after a crappy day in an un-AC'd office building.
Belgariad Series #2: The master Sorcerer Belgarath and his daughter Polgara the arch-Sorceress were on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain its saving power before the final disaster prophesized by the legends. And with them went Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery and wanted no part of it. Yet with every league they traveled, the power grew in him, forcing him to acts of wizardry he could not accept.
