    "great book!"

    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!

    "Great story about a dark world"

    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.

    "Love Drizt"

    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.

    Story
    "Didn't expect it to be this good!"

    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.

    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!

    Story
    "Origins of a legendary tabletop gaming character"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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?


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


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

    The cat. (Trying to avoid spoilers).


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Great audio adaptation"
    Where does Homeland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "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" ;-)
