    "Enjoyed the story."

    Struggled with momentum as I usually do with these Drizzt books. Speaking of which, where was the Drizzt? Wulfgar's troubles are interesting, but I'm ready for the gang to get back together and wreck some monsters.

    "boring!"

    this book was mostly about Wolfgar and some random kids. I was not impressed. seems like the author had no ideas for a plot and wrote a bunch of crap to make money. Skip this book.

    "eh"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The first half keeps switching between Wulfgar and then to people that just seems to be from a romance novel or soap opera. Eventually you do figure out why these people were in the story, however it could have simply done with a few paragraphs of backstory after their paths cross with Wulfgar and didnt need all the boring crap.


    Has The Spine of the World: Legend of Drizzt: Paths of Darkness, Book 2 turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Was The Spine of the World: Legend of Drizzt: Paths of Darkness, Book 2 worth the listening time?

    Story
    "Not Salvatore's best work"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is for Wulfgar fans, that are interested in seeing the character spiral down into a drunken fool by making poor decision after poor decision. I'm about half way through the book and still no Drizzt, Bruenor, Regis, or Catti-brie.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Sea of Swords and I'll be praying that it's good enough for me to keep going in the Drizzt world.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I usually love the Drizzt books finishing them in a day or two tops. I've been trying to get through this for over a month and I'm still only half way through.


    Any additional comments?

    If I could do it again. I'd just find a plot summary of the book and skip this one. It was a waste of a credit.

    "The Most Depressing Book"

    Narrator was good as always, but this book was extremely hard to work thru. I started out with the Drizzt series in 2015, and have been devouring them as fast as possible. This had to be the most depressing book to date. I found the need to walk away from this audio book twice before I got through it. If there are many more like this one in the full series, I may just have to give up now.

    "Great reading, most boring of the series"

    Boring. This book missed the mark on the usually thrilling storytelling. Repetitive scenes and super emo. Hope this is the first and last of this kind of Drizzt book.

    "While less epic in story, it was interesting"

    I could have done without the ridiculous side story though, but it eventually weaved into the main plot (though it felt like it took forever to do so).
