Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Great fantasy book where good and evil is sometimes easy to spot, yet hard to define. Here we learn more about the Underdark and the creatures and monsters that live there. The book starts off 10 years later from where it left off in Homeland. Drizzt finds new friends and still has old enemies after him to contend with. Again the world building is excellent. The first book is has a lot of different character building, in the second the focus is more on Drizzt and his perceptions. Author leaves off with the promise of new adventures for Drizzt and anticipation for the reader in the next segment of this trilogy. Narrator has a clear concise voice and is pleasant to listen to.
Many years ago, I read this series and the Crystal Shard trilogy when they were first published and have followed the life and experiences of Drizzt the Drow Elf for many years. When it was released by Audible on audiobook, I was excited to jump back in and re-live those stories...I am so glad I did. Hearing these novels read by Victor Bevine is fantastic! His voice is perfect and he brings each character to life in their own unique way! Have downloaded this trilogy and the Crystal Shard trilogy to listen to again and again. I'm also sharing these audiobooks with my 10 and 11 year old children and teaching them the principles of the books...you can rise above your environment. You can become whatever you want, and living a principled life may not be easy, but it is worth it! Thanks Audible for bringing me back to these great books!
I read R. A. Salvatore's stories, "The Legend of Drizzt".
To be able to forgive the wrongs someone/people do to you is rare.
Belwar's principals, "Friend ship is not a debt."
When Belwar puts aside his feelings to show compassion,
Yes, I'd love to if I could sit down for 15h. I normally listen to it for 6h to 8h a listening.
Belwar shows how to be a true friend and never asks for anything in return.
Trials and tribulations. Standing on your beliefs yet recognizing you need companionship.
Going to the gnomes and being accepted.
He is a good narrator. I have come to enjoy the audible books more than just reading as it comes to life for me.
Just enjoyed the bonding of different species and their loyalties.
One gripe I have is the volume. It goes up and down a lot. I have to keep adjusting the volume and it is annoying. Not to mention cumbersome when I am driving down the road.
I read the hard copy of this book as a teenager and was one of my all time favorite books. Now I'm an artist, and a very busy one at that, so I dont get to read that often. BUT working while listening to this is not only inspiring, it give me better work flow because I just dont want to leave my desk! I'm not the owner of all three dark elf trilogy books and will be slowly getting all of R.a.salvatore's books. I highly suggest this read if you love a good fantasty with lovable characters and a good story.
I LOVE the characters in this book. I have to admit that I almost lump all three dark elf books together, but for good reason. Throughout each book you see a piece of the main character's Drizzt's, life and is travels. The trials and the beautiful mental images R.A. gives you is amazing.
This is the first Victor Bevine's performance I've ever heard and I'm very pleased. I can't compare to what else he's done, but I love how he narrates this book.
I can't give too much of this, because it contains a few spoilers. But I love drizzts return home.
Magic, awesome fighting, good story, and the trails of self versus environment. If thats what interests you, GET THIS BOOK!
after a somewhat lame first book i gave it another go. hoping that it would become better with the series developing. it does not. still no plot, no ups and downs, nothing that would engage me into the story. boring.
Obsessive book hoarder, and intense audible lover.
I did listen to this. I didn't end up liking it myself. I had a hard time keeping all the details of the novel straight. It may have been due to my gradual disinterest, or it may not. I appreciated the idea and plot, but just didn't like the writing.
I wont go in to the plots too much mainly if it 3 - 5 stars you may want to try it.
Drizzt Do'Urden Left his home and is still hunted by his family. Learning to survive on his own due to the reputation of the drow he spends most his time alone surviving as the hunter only have his friend a magical cat, Guenhwyvar with him. Wanting somewhere to
call home and be safe. Drizzt seeks out Belwar Dissengulp for hope or judgement for his deeds as a drow.
I purchased the first two books in the Drizzt trilogy based on a recommendation from a friend. The author's plots are very shallow and disconnected from each other. He seems to get inspiration from other shows -- I can't be more specific without spoiling things -- but there's a distinct scene taken directly out of a Star Trek TV episode. It's tossed in there randomly out of the blue with no rhyme or reason.
I ended up putting the narrator on 3x speed just so I could say I finished the story... but even then, I couldn't. I made it about half way through and removed it from my device.
