    "Great start"

    I'm glad I went back to the beginning of this series. It makes much more sense and gives tons of insight into the life and struggles of Drizzdt. Very well written and performed. I'm starting the second book now.

    "Brilliantly written"

    Heavy and dark but very profound and eloquent. Kind of depressing but will definitely read the next book. The narrator was very good.

    "New to Salvatore"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Homeland to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but received high praise and recommendation from a friend who has been reading these novels since they first came out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drizzt - The way Salvatore writes the character and ties you in emotionally is astounding. You feel what the character feels, joy, hurt, pain, loneliness, everything. I have never been so connected to a fictional character as I was to Drizzt, I felt as if I was walking the path along with the characters.


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

    The way Bevine creates characters and paints a picture is fantastic. He puts the perfect inflection on the words and the narration. He helps you feel the story with his pacing and energy.


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

    Yes, I became hooked, I could not wait to sit and listen, as i neared the end of the book I was already preparing the next one.

    "PERFECT FANTASY ACTION"

    First off I must tell you that I am novice when it comes to fantasy novels but while in the mood for sword and sorcery I decided to listen to the Dragonlance trilogy. I really enjoyed it but not enough to continue the journey with the 2 brothers in the twins trilogy. But while I looked for other D&D based novels I camera across this book and man I'm I glad I did. It has just the right amount of action and intrigue to keep you interested while paint the picture of a larger world. I know this novel is a couple decades old now but it feels very fresh still. So if you're a fan of a great action story, coming of age tale or political thriller you just may love this book.

    "Excellent story and outstanding performance."
    Where does Homeland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely liked this book, what a awesome story in a not-so-typical setting. Most fantasy is about the good guys - this is definitely about the evil of the Drow and it's a nice change of pace and cool.

    Longtime fantasy fan and I've known of this book and trilogy for 20+ years and have not picked it up. My mistake, this a great novel with everything you need, my only regret was not picking it up many many years ago.


    What other book might you compare Homeland to and why?

    As a great intro, I would compare this to Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman as a great intro novel in a D&D based fantasy trilogy. Dragonlance, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, D&D fans need to pick this one up, stat.


    Have you listened to any of Victor Bevine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The first time I've listened to Victor Bevine and he does not let down. Whereas many narrators deliver a robotic, methodical pace to their performances, Victor impresses immediately with variable pacing and a touch for adding well done character voices.He succeeds at giving them personality, emotion, tone and pacing, whereas many have made me physically cringe in the awkwardness and acting ability.

    If you are going to voice act characters - give them some personality and differentiate the way they speak, look no further than this as a benchmark.

    He ads a sense of tension to parts of a story that are obviously picking up and are faster paced. At those times, he delivers the speed, creating some great tension and had me on the edge of my car seat many times during this book. The best narrarator I've listened to yet, and I will be scouting his performances eagerly.
