    A set of golf stories told mostly by the oldest member of the Golf Club. Done in the usual Wodehouse style, very amusing, though probably better if you understand golf (which I don’t).

    The second in the Heritage of Shannara series it takes on the story of one of the characters and touches briefly upon another introduced in the first book. It has plenty of action as well as character development. Certainly not a stand alone book.

    The third book in the Heritage of Shannara series, it is more emotionally charged than the previous books. A lot of things are revealed and resolved, though not easily, and everything is set for the concluding book in the series.
