    Story
    "Solid sequel to a great first book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Exile to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the printed version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character and universe development of every character, making it feel like a fully fleshed out world.


    Which character – as performed by Victor Bevine – was your favorite?

    Drizzt


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many but that would spoil it.


    Any additional comments?

    Bought the book shortly after completing the first one in the trilogy. The second continues a great story with excellent narration. Compared to the first, I found the story lagging behind on the first one slightly. Whereas the previous book spent a lot of time in Menzoberranzan watching Drizzt grow up, giving you a lot of background on many characters, this one is spent mainly in the various locales of the Underdark. It moves the focus from Drizzt and his family, to Drizzt and the creatures he encounters. This allows for more action, but less story progression. The first book spanned several dozens of years. This one feels way more confined in that regard.

    I felt the scenes in Menzoberranzan were less interesting now that the focus character of the book isn't actually in the city.

    The excellent writing and great scenes more than made up for the slower story pacing though.

    A fantastic book that makes me eager to listen to the next one.

    Story
    "Trial and Tribulations."

    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.

    Story
    "Drizzt = Hero"

    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!

    Story
    "This is my favorite book!"
    What did you love best about Exile?

    To be able to forgive the wrongs someone/people do to you is rare.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Belwar's principals, "Friend ship is not a debt."


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Belwar puts aside his feelings to show compassion,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I'd love to if I could sit down for 15h. I normally listen to it for 6h to 8h a listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Belwar shows how to be a true friend and never asks for anything in return.

    Story
    "Okay, I am hooked!"
    What made the experience of listening to Exile the most enjoyable?

    Trials and tribulations. Standing on your beliefs yet recognizing you need companionship.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Exile?

    Going to the gnomes and being accepted.


    What does Victor Bevine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is a good narrator. I have come to enjoy the audible books more than just reading as it comes to life for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just enjoyed the bonding of different species and their loyalties.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good, but not as good as the first book"

    This was quite a good book. It had lots of different characters in an interesting and exciting environment.

    What I did not like about this book was that there was too much fighting. I don't mind fighting but it's such a time waster.

    The first book was better, and I am willing to give the third book a try.

    "love this series"

    Between the already captivating storyline of Drizzt Do'urden and the amazing storytelling abilities of the narrator. I finished this book in a couple of days. I can't wait to finish the whole of the Drizzt storyline.
