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.
They don't call them dark elves for nothing. These are treacherous deceitful dangerous evil elves. Their only concern in life is getting to the top of the dark elf heap and they will go over or through friend and foe alike to get there.
Except one. Drizzt.
He is different from his kin and this is his story. How will he cope in such a civilization? How can he survive in this ultimate Machiavellian of worlds?
Read and find out for it is a good tale well read.
This is an interesting world with it's own set of twisted rules and customs. The author paints this dark world and culture vividly. Some of the characters can seem a bit one dimensional but then again these are some pretty evil elves. I give it a solid 4 stars.
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!
R A Salvatore is one of the greatest fantasy writers ever. when you read his books you they just grab you and you can't stop reading. I have read all his books and their is not 1 that I don't like.
It was a look inside drow society. It explains alot of how why and makes you understand the true depth of evil of the drow and of how couragiouse drizzit truly is to become the hero we know and love. If your new to R.A. salvator;s Drizzit then this is the first book of all of his adventures and sets the stage magnificently.
The voice acotr was awesome truly brought the story to life. He brought life to the charecters and did diffrent accents and was very easy to determine naration of differing charecters.
Drizzt Do'Urden is why I come here.
a legend was born
Drizzt's story begins
he is a very good reader
I neither laughed nor cried but am happy Drizzt spends time with his father.
having already read it I knew what was gonna happen, I bought it anyways on audio. I imagine the rest of the series will be read by the same man and equally as good. the whole series so far up to where I have read is great. I started with homeland and have bought all the books except the neverwinter saga. I plan on buying all the drizzt on audio. just waiting for movies now.
I am brutally honest. Popular, love everything they read, reviewers are scared to go neg. and risk their ranking. It's your money!!!
I don't know if it is the author or just this these Forgotten Realm books, but I can't into these. Everything is magical or enchanted, the plethora of adjectives and adverbs are uncountable. To me good writing does not need all of these descriptive narratives. For my fantasy I prefer Robin Hobb, she gets in my head.
This is very popular with a certain set of the fantasy world. I believe if you like Terry Brooks, you will love this.
The narrator was good.
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.
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.
"Good book, excellent narrator"
The story is very imaginative and entertaining
others by the same author
all of it
No, I wanted to enjoy it over a long time
"My favourite of the Drizzt books ..."
The author gives an unparalleled insight into the dystopian world of the Drow and is easily my favourite Fantasy audio book.
So many ... the intrigue and outright war between the Drow houses, the Drow Academy, Maya Do'Urden (who seems to be a bit more of a character than I remember). So many!
Drizzt. Obvious answer but true.
"Only on HBO" ;-)
I would listen to this again because I love a story about the underdog.
Drizzt, I like an underdog, he has so much stacked against him and yet he pulls through it all.
