How many Trilogies are there? Completed quite a few and thought that they were amazing, especially after the big reveal. The first chronological trilogy still confuses me though.

I made it about 100 pages into Sword of Shannara and that was some of the most lightweight high fantasy garbage I've read... ever.

That the world as the characters know it is Earth, which has experienced global nuclear destruction. The gnomes, dwarves and trolls are all really mutated humans. Elves are still a magical race unrelated to humans. That kinda blew my mind.

You're not missing much.

The first three books basically copies LOTRs.


Can't argue with that. But I will say that the other ones are far better.
