    "A bit dark"

    I enjoyed it but I found it difficult for a long time to find a character to like. The book has a bit of a dark feel about it and definitely wouldn't call it uplifting.

    Having said that, things do change and it's worth persisting with.Without giving away the ending of the first book, it ends in a way that the second book sounds as if things may be a bit brighter. I'll probably get the second book.

    Excellent performance by Vic Bevine.

    "Great Story, Excellent Narration, Glitches?"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drizzt, His conflicts of life as a Drow are very exciting


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Excellent Series!"

    I have just fallen in love with Drizzt. He is such an excellent character. There are so many books about Drizzt that it took me a while to find the beginning of the series; however, this is it. You have reached the beginning story. I especially love Drizzt's commentaries on life. Pretty sensitive, for a Drow! lol

    If you are looking for a good fantasy series, with Elves, Dwarves, Humans, and all kinds of fantasy creatures, all wielding Magic, and with lots of action, you just can't go wrong with this series. It is the Motherlode. R A Salvatore has created so many excellent books about Drizzt and his companions that it is like an banquet. Victor Bevine does an excellent job of narrating, too. He brings the characters to life for me.

    Story
    "Victor Bevine should get 10 stars."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    These three books have long been a favorite of mine and I've wanted to share them with my wife, who does not have time to read. when these came out I was thrilled that they were out but a bit nervous as with anything someone cherishes you don't know how it will be relayed when presented in a new form.

    Victor Bevine does a fantastic job of reading this entire series. you relays the urgency in the books just as well as the the drama, and tension. Just a fantastic narration of one of my all time favorite books.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have never tried this series I urge anyone to start with book one and stick with them. the first book starts off a little slow but only because their is such a big world that needs to be created in your mind. midway through the book you will be cursing the times that you have to stop listening to do anything else.

    "Return to an "old" friend!"

    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!

    The Legend Begins Here

    "A indepth dark story"
    What made the experience of listening to Homeland the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What about Victor Bevine’s performance did you like?

    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.


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

    yes

    "Amazing book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Got me hooked to the character and the universe.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drizzt


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

    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..


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

    After the first 2 chapters or so which are quite slow, the book hits a highpoint that it never lets go of.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Action, action and Action"
    If you could sum up Homeland in three words, what would they be?

    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.)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What about Victor Bevine’s performance did you like?

    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.

    "Salvatore you have earned a new fan"

    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.
