This is really something more for action fans and those who love D&D
No, but I won't continue the series - I didn't mind the first but was hoping the next story would bring more depth to the characters and story. The characters are very one dimensional and the story is just not anything special - good vs evil but I don't like any of the characters enough [or hate them enough!] to keep my interest
Victor Bevine does a wonderful job with the narration - the voices flow seamlessly and are all identifiable - well done
boredom . . .
I am an avid reader of sci-fi adventure / fantasy adventure. Drow elves, magic users, heroes, does well as end of the world, military,books.
A very enjoyable fantasy realm.
A person could believe in the characters. Presented in a understandable story lines.
Character interactions. While the combat is good because most of the characters do not kill/fight for a living and it takes a different tole on them... it's the dialogue that keeps you listening.
Boulder Shoulder Bros. Ivan and Pickle are always down for a fight and a laugh. I know their motives and story parts might be small but you know what to expect with dwarfs.
Victor always does a nice job. He does most if not all of the Drizzt books I've listened to and he is in the top 5 for FR narrators.
I don't feel like you have to had read the first book in the series to understand what was happening in Sylvan Shadows. Obviously, character background helps but the story seems fairly independent.
the cleric quintet is not my absolute favorite of Salvatore. though it is an enjoyable listen that I did not regret purchasing. Victor Bevine excellently portrayed all the parts. He hit the role of 'the bouldershoulder brothers' right on the mark, greatly adding to the comic relief.
audio books give me the chance to catch up on books I'd never make the time for.

Yes I would it's not as perfect as the drizzt books but pretty close
All of it
All of it
Thank you ra and audible
The reader has a few vocal idiosyncracies I found distracting but that's me being far too sensitive to that kind of thing. I really wish Salvatore had spent more time on his potentially interesting characters and less timeon blow by blow bloody combat scenes. I don't *CARE* how so and so ducked and spun and leaped and sliced and blood gouted from this or that, I want to know what happened to the characters and the plot.
I wish there'd been more plot and less combat descriptions. You do not need to describe every stroke of combat. it kills the pacing. I just stopped caring about 3/4 the way through.
Any scene where we actually have a balance of plot moving forward and characters interacting meaningfully. I think there were about five or six in the whole darn book.
I should have known I wasn't going to get good writing out of RA "I Love Drizzt" Salvatore. Oh well.
