    "A decent story. Subpar reading performance."

    A great subterranean world unlike any other I've heard about before. Mystery and plot are spun in a web of inticing curiosity. I like the story but the reading performance was not to my liking, I shall see if there are any other narrators of the other books and if that's the case I shall listen to the lot.

    "Better than I expected"

    I shied away from reading this series of novels for a long time, mainly because as I knew they were based on the Forgottenn Realms I assumed they might just be novelisations of dungeon and dragons games, and hence by extension probably be a bit tacky. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this first book in the series.

    The book follows the early life of Drizzt Do'Orden, a dark elf who has morals, has scruples, has a consciience and most certainly does not fit into the evil ddark elf society into which he is born. Fortunately for Drizzt he is not entirely alone. His father, and principal weapons master also shares his misgivings regarding the society in which they live.

    Can Drizzt survive in such a cut throat environment where its every elf for himself and cunning, deaviousness and downright nastiness are lauded above all other character traits?

    How can he reconcile is feeling of revulsion for his family and the other dark elves with his own belief in goodness and justice?

    The author manages to capture this inner termoil of the protagonist while at the same time not letting the pace of the story slackin.

    There is no shortage of action, interspersed with enough intrigue and machinations to keep everybody happy.

    If I was being picky you could argue that Drizzt seems a little more naive than seems realistic given how long he has been living among the dark elves, but that is a minor quibble.

    Finally, the narrator does an excellent job.

    recommended.

    4 out of 5 stars.

    "great book, good reader"

    I love these stories. the only complaint I have for the performance is that often he would get quiet, whisper, so it became difficult to understand. I know that it was on purpose to add flair to the performance, just a bit annoying

    "Wonderful Start to an amazing series!"
    If you could sum up Homeland in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing, Dramatic, Amazing.


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

    I couldn't stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    Amazing start to an incredible series. I am not a fan of science fiction novels but this book was enough to have me purchase the remainder of the series. The narration is incredibly rich and has just enough changes to keep the listener interested not sleepy.

    "Captivating! One of my all time favorites"

    Excellent character development, plot, and surprises.
    One of R.A. Salvatore's best works, this book I'll always be in my top 5. Salvatore's writing style has some of the best word painting I've ever read. His style allows you to feel the emotions of the characters as your own, and lose yourself in the beauty of his descriptions. His creation of this world is masterful and all the intricacies he includes bring it to life.
    Highly recommend!
