Either way, he knows now where he’s headed - back to the only place that’s ever felt like home.
What about Victor Bevine’s performance did you like?
First audio book I've listened to. Gave me what I expected.
Any additional comments?
As with other reviewers, I will admit the ending leaves the reader wanting more. Overall, the story is well written.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Threshold to be better than the print version?
Good story. As were all in this series. Finishes up the story and sets up well for The Sundering. Drizt will finally gets on with his life. Only been waiting 100 plus years.
Have you listened to any of Victor Bevine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Most of his voices for the characters were all the same 2, with almost no difference at all. But the author makes it clear who say talking and doing what.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Did I laugh or cry? Laughed a few times, no crying in Faerun. Was entertained in every chapter.
Any additional comments?
I like the smell of book print. i just sit and sniff the books, over and over again. I wish audible would add that smell to their voice overs. Its 2013 for gods sake. But thanks for the audio books, i never learned how to read.

I agree with another reviewer, Tom from CA, in that the author seems to have lost interest in the Drizzt Character. He does seem like he wanted to wrap this up and finish it.
Mini-Spoiler Alert- I'm going to try and stay away from some details so I don't ruin this for those who have not read this book but some things I can't help but mention. Please, be warned. The book started out a little slow and it never really sped up. The action scenes always left me wanting a little more which can be a good thing but the author never delivered. I read page after page trying to figure out where everything was going but I just couldn't. The mother-son storyline was cliche in the extreme between Dalia and Effron the Broken Tiefling. It was easily predictable where that storyline would lead. The Drizzt, Entreri, and Dalia triangle was more of an obtuse rhombus and if my description there doesn't make sense then I succeeded in showing exactly how that "triangle" led nowhere and made no sense. Sorry for that.
I have enjoyed Salvatore's writing style and his Drizzt books for years and even if I wasn't interested in the story specifics themselves, Salvatore was always able to pull me in and keep me turning pages. He is that good a writer and storyteller. This time it seems his heart just wasn't in it. I was very interested in the Regis and Cattie-Brie teasers but they ended up going nowhere. The ending was just like a flooded back yard that slowly just drained and faded away. If this is to be the end of Drizzt Du'Orden, and it is by no means clear that this is the end, then he met quite the sad ending. Again, to be clear, I can't even tell you if this was the end of Drizzt, that was how unclear it was. I was forced to go back and re-read the advertising for this book to make sure it was the end of the series and sadly it was.
The ending timeline was perfect for ending this book in 1,000 different directions but I am dissappointed in the way the author chose Drizzt to go.
I am very happy that at least Artemis Entreri isn't dead or even close to it. I hope he comes back in a trilogy all his own someday. He is one of my favorite characters and I don't want to see him go.

Can't get enough! Gotta love the adventures of Drizz't! Would love to see it in a movie or TV series...
This is the last book of the Neverwinter saga, and does seem to try to do a little to much in my eyes and it ends setting up the next series, which in my eyes is kind moving to being dumb, but not the books fault. I loved these new companions of Dirzzts and to me seem more real and ones that i cared more about than the older ones which is the reason why i thought it was dumb the direction it seems to go at the end and in the next book. The end chapters were pretty bad in this one because of this and disappointed in the end when i realized where they were going vs more a closer. I don't want to spoil anything. So the best way to put it. Great in the beginning and most the way through. Horrible and boring at the end with a dumb but huge cliff hanger at the end. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY
this book made me tear several times for loss or triumph of drizzt and his companions. book ties loose ends of saga together. recommend this whole saga to all forgotten realms fans
I am an avid Salvatore fan and this one was just a huge letdown... spoiler alert!!!
Drizzt essentially commits suicide for no reason other than laziness on Salvatore's part... the second half of the book droned on and on for hours with absolutely nothing getting done... it was a a profound disappointment....
Awesome story, Victor splendid as always. I recommend this story to all that are into the dark elf.
This book really leaves you hanging at the end and I can't wait to read the next!
