this book was recomended to me by a random guy I met in the bookstore, looking at this older gemtalman he did not strike me as the type of person to read such books but I told him I would give them a try knowing in my head I probably wouldn't being the picky reader I am I eventually ran out of books to read so I thought back to these recommended to me and I bought them on here and have greatly enjoyed them they only get better as they go on so I thank that old man for introducing me to such a great series!
This is a phenomenal book about one individual who chooses to rise above the evil world he is born into. Salvatore drives the hero on, in a way that most writers fail to do. The constant psychological peril keeps you on the edge of your seat.
There is a very good reason this book became a best seller.
I love the story of Drizt and I love that these novels have shaped the game of Dungeons and Dragons and it helps give some light to rules in the game.
I like the narrator but I feel that there isn't a huge distinction in voices.
R. A. Salvatore is amazing. On top of that this was very well narrated. For anyone that likes these sort of books in the forgotten realms this is a must listen to.
Homeland is full of excitement, solid transitions and is a story of ethical courage in a land of deception and death. I would highly recommend it.
Where it all began. Awesome book. Victor Bevine brings the characters to life. A must!
i love Sci-Fi, and i hate capitalizing the letter i. it should be done automatically in this day and age. i hate boring books.
So this was actually a pretty great story. It wasn't all just mindless magic and monsters. There was some real emotion here.
Lots of well written, engaging action. Very smooth pace that never lagged. If anything it went too fast, but I like stories that span many years and don't take 1000's of pages.
The ending was very satisfying and I'll definitely be reading the next installment.
Narration was brilliant. Gave the story a feel, a tone, and a general atmosphere that was synergistic.
"Must be one of the best starts to a legend ever!"
A must read for any d&d fan. This awesome book starts the journey for Drizzt do Urden and makes you want to read the rest! I already own the paperback version but just had to get the audiobook. Victor Bevine narrates it just perfectly!
"Origins of a legendary tabletop gaming character"
Absolutely. Many of my friends know my love of fiction and gaming, particularly the imagination and fun of pen-and-paper role-playing games like D&D. Anyone familiar with D&D knows of Drizzt from Menzoberranzan, the franchise's legendary dark elf. Salvatore, through Bevine's excellent performance, brings this two-dimensional icon to life. What's not to like?
Adding this dimension to a much-admired gaming legend allows the reader to experience the Forgotten Realms brought to life, through the early years of one of its most memorable characters. Bevine's performance adds the right amount of suspense, darkness, elation and trepidation.
The cat. (Trying to avoid spoilers).
I particularly like this series for the reasons mentioned above, but standing alone from their D&D background I believe they make an interesting fantasy story. No prior knowledge of polyhedral dice or character sheets is required. The story stands on its own merits.
"Great audio adaptation"
Pretty highly, I'm a big fan of the Drizzt books so finding them as unabridged audio books makes me very happy... although perhaps gives them an unfair advantage as they start high up the list compared to some of the others in my library!
Drizzt! I love the character! More fairly I have to say Zaknafein as he's very well portrayed by the narrator, with Alton De'Vir coming in as close second, the narrator does a fabulous job with his slightly insane vengeance.
Really looking forward to listening to the rest of the Drizzt books I'm hoarding in my library now I've got some free time!
"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 all time favourite author."
The book is wonderfully written. Had trouble with the narrator's choices at times. overall - excellent.
The story of Drizzt is amazing. Brilliant writing from R.A Salvatore, and excellent performance from Victor Bevine. I have listened to this one book five times, I loved it that much!
Loved it! Brilliant story and Characters. R. A. Salvatore is a brilliant and creative man who doesn't get the credit he deserves. Onto the next book!
"Loved every minute"
Great listen. Very well performed. I've loved the drizzt nooks since I was a teenaher, havomg them to listen to is great.
"Intro to Drizz"
I found it a bit slow to start as you would expect .... But It became gripping and I need to listen to the next in the trilogy as soon as i can
"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" ;-)
