Sword of Shannara

I have been on a fantasy kick lately- and recently began the Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks. I'm only 150odd pages in and can't get over the similarity to LOTR.
Main character innocent of the world outside his village- check
Imposing older man's guidance- check.
Quest to find item/use item to save the world- check.
Band of friends go on a voyage- check

Does it continue on in such an alarmingly similar manner to LOTR, or will I enjoy the series in it's own right soon? I'm not knocking the writing, it's enjoyable- but incredibly deja vu.
