Drizzt, His conflicts of life as a Drow are very exciting
The book had a small glitch occasionally. Narration would cut out and some strange noises would occur. Did not reduce my enjoyment of the book though. Great listen.
I read these books years ago and have been intrigued with the enigmatic Drow that is Drizzt Do' Urden ever since. The Dark Elf Trilogy was the first of any of R.A. Salvatore's books that I had ever read and fell in love with the tales of his travels and adventures. If you've ever wondered about Drizzt and what "made" him the way that he is, this is the best place to start. Victor Bevine also does an excellent job in bringing the story to life, you can almost "see" the underdark caverns!
I read R. A. Salvatore's stories, "The Legend of Drizzt".
It Begins Here!
Everything! I love this story and now I can listen to it over and over again!
He does the voices great! Hes getting a lot better with voicing Dwarfs.
The Legend Begins Here
If you enjoy a great story with even greater fights R. A. Salvatore is your guy! Buy Homeland and begin your journey with Drizzt Do'Urden!
Yes. Got me hooked to the character and the universe.
Victor delivers lines with true emotion, appropriately getting excited as you are and delivering spoken lines in a way that conveys the emotion of the speaker. It made the fight scenes more intense as he pulls you in, and the conversations more fun to listen to. Great delivery overall and probably the main reason I'll buy the rest of the series..
After the first 2 chapters or so which are quite slow, the book hits a highpoint that it never lets go of.
I had no experience with the series, the character or D&D in general, and came in hoping for a good fantasy novel. It's one of the best I've ever read and I can't wait to listen to the next one. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys fantasy books. Excellent writing and spot on delivery.
If you do not know of Drizt, then you are missing something awesome in fantasy fiction. Get this book to get to know Drizzt
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I read this trilogy a while back upon my brother suggestions and I am happy I did. I look forward to the next two books because they were my favorite of the three. Drizzt is a great character and I love how he interacts with Guinevere. The world created by the author is very vivid and I can imagine it with great detail. This can sometimes be the fall of a fantasy book, but I believe the author expertly pulled this off in his dark elf series. I have also read a few of the other trilogies written by RA Salvatore and I recommend this author to all those who love a good solid fantasy book. No need to have a clue about the role playing aspect that has been mentioned in other reviews. I didn't know about any of that when I read the books and I enjoyed them immensely. Narrator does a good job.
Fantasy geek, literature lover!
I've already done that in the headline. Of course, there's more, but this is a action-packed novel, suitable to anyone who's into D&D or into combat-oriented fantasy. There are of course other themes here as well, but they are just tackled with no real intention to go deeper (gender situation, friendship, family ties, etc.)
This novel is not a chorus of different characters, all equally important. Here there's a clear distinction between main characters and extras. Of course, the reader is strongly encouraged to like the protagonist and the mentor, that is to say his father. There are a couple of other interesting characters (the masked wizard, Drittz's sister Vierna) but they are underdeveloped.
Bevine did mostly a good job. He's a pro, so he knows his craft. Still, sometimes he reads a little too fast, even though the reason is comprehensible (an action-packed novel calls for... well, action). As in this trilogy Drittz is very young, I would have preferred a younger voice but that is a matter of personal preference, no fault with the performer.
Keep your mind active.
Reading through various recommendations from other Fantasy readers, I stumbled upon this book and figured I would give it a try. What an outstanding surprise, and I look forward to enjoying other books by RA Salvatore. A novel of intense passion and inner turmoil. Wonderful character development and an intriguing society. It has been a long time since I've enjoyed a book that sucks me in as effortlessly as Homeland. The narrators style compliments the writing and the story is exciting and detailed. Very well done. Do not miss this one.
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!
Homeland was one of the very first books that I read cover to cover for fun as a child. I turned me on to a whole new world of fictional books. My love of reading started with this very book. I had to buy it to relive that world I read about so long ago. I can't wait to dust off the actual book and pass it down to my son.
Move over Batman, There's a new dark knight in town.
