    "First Time with Drizzt"

    I've heard so many great things, and figured it was time to try out the first Drizzt book. I've always been a fan of D&D and Forgotten Realms. This book did not disappoint, and the narrator was outstanding. I can see why R.A. Salvatore is so celebrated among fantasy authors.

    As this was also my first run-through with an audiobook, it took a chapter or two to get used to listening rather than reading. But once I was able to give the book my undivided attention, I became engrossed in the world of the Underdark and the lore of the dark elves.

    While I have nothing to compare it to, I think the narrator could have brought the spirit of characters out with a little more emotion and dramatic voice tones. Still, a fine job.

    A great story, and I will continue to read and explore the world of Salvatore!

    "It was okay.."

    The story spans many years, but it I'll go from year 10 to year 15 then to year 25 in a matter of a few chapters. It was not all that interesting. No nail biting moments, unexpected turns, or elaborate plot. It was just dull. I can't see myself going onto book 2 or 3. There just wasn't any excitement. I had no desire to spend extra time to learn what would happen next. I only finished the book because I paid for it.

    "Love the story, narrator not so much."

    The story is great and I am excited to get into the other books again (I've actually already read the books quite some time ago). The only issue I had was with the narrator's way of reading. The narrator read the book in, what seemed to be, a whisper. There were times when his voice got louder and more Stern, but those were during the fight scenes and when someone of power was talking. In my opinion the narrator should have just read the book in a normal tone. The narrator's voice seemed way to soft spoken to be a normal tone to me. I kind of can understand why he read it that way, but to me it didn't work out at all. I found myself getting more distracted by the soft voice then actually listening to the story. The book itself is a great book though.

    "Simply Awesome!"

    This book is amazing and a perfect start to an amazing adventure. The characters are so deep (haha because they live under ground..get it?.. I'll stop) It's been a long time since i've read a fiction book like this and had so much fun. There is a perfect mix of comedy, drama, and action that keeps you invested. Drizzt himself is a character beyond words. His complexity and struggles really make the book. I recommend this to anyone looking for a thrilling adventure.

    Story
    "My favourite of the Drizzt books ..."
    Where does Homeland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The author gives an unparalleled insight into the dystopian world of the Drow and is easily my favourite Fantasy audio book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Homeland?

    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!


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

    Drizzt. Obvious answer but true.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Only on HBO" ;-)

    Would you listen to Homeland again? Why?

    I would listen to this again because I love a story about the underdog.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drizzt, I like an underdog, he has so much stacked against him and yet he pulls through it all.
