In thinking about Roze's 'follow authors or novels' thread it got me thinking. When being introduced to a huge variety of authors in reading the EU of star wars i started branching out and reading some of the authors other works. Enter stage left Terry Brooks; His Shanarra Series is regurgitated #$%^ IMHO. That series was trying SO hard to be LOTR that after 2 books i couldnt stand it any more. I will concede that if i hadn't read LOTR then i might of actually enjoyed Shanarra, but probably not. I could go on about the unimaginative characters and plot line but i'll spare you, my fellow book/literature lovers, my inner termoil. Anyone else got an author they just can't stand? Or just wanna disagree about my choice? Happy to hear it/debate it.
