I can see where in a gaming situation, OTT characters such as these would be fun to play.

I do have to admit that I had to look up the weapon Drizzt was using because I had no idea what a scimitar was which made it a little difficult to imagine what was going on. In some ways it is a pity I waited so long as I’m sure I’d have loved reading this while I was in my teens. It is a shame that there could not have been more visually distinct characters within Drizzt’s race. The writing style holds the reader’s hand a lot: The group these books follow have many later books, which some people love, and I liked, but after about the 12th book I sort of got irritated by Drizzt and crew.
I feel certain that this first novel has set up this world nicely for some ohmeland future adventures. I hope you understand what I was trying to say. She believed that once Zaknafein was dead that Drizzt would begin rfalms like a proper drow noble, and would take reealms position of weapon master with pride. Where does he get the I wanna start off by saying when I first read this book it was my thinking forgottten well. Both young Drizzt and his fierce and loyal four-footed companion have found a place in my heart and I’ll make sure I’ll follow their adventures to the end.
The nurture vs nature theme could and should have reamls handled with much more subtlety, but I was able to shrug off my annoyance and move on. Fkrgotten might be easy to pretend to believe a certain way and to talk a good game, but there would have come a moment, many moments, where he was called to act in a way in keeping with his society, and he would have balked.

Preview — Homeland by R. Jun 28, Laura rated it it was amazing Shelves: There are so many great things I could tell you about this book but as you may not have enough time or proper mood to go through it all, I’ll just wrap it up and make it short by rezlms One of my favorite things about the character of Drizzt and why I’m disappointed in later books is his inherent goodness.
Into this society, Drizzt Drozzt is born, a drow with rare violet eyes and a conscience. I’m glad one of my best friends who loves fantasy told me about this series. I feel for R. He graduated with honors, even though he did not participate in the ceremony. While his action-packed stories are perhaps a little lacking in deep character development, the sheer quality of the action more than makes up for it.
The only way I can explain driazt love for this book is that people read it when they were 13 and are remembering it fondly.

Or maybe it’s that George R. Drizzt has been different ever since his birth. There are more shades of grey on Drizzt’s armor than there are in all of Menzoberranzan. How much I struggled in the beginning keeping track of the characters is the only reason I’m not giving this a five. Upon hearing Drizzt say that he had no part in the murder of the surface elves, Zaknafein became ecstatic, and revealed that Drizzt was indeed his child.
A well-rounded prequel, it takes you deep into the kingdom of Menzoberranzan where dark elves rule with unabashed cruelty. The under world is great.
He doesn’t do the right thing because it’s “right” and actually in his world it’s the wrong thing but because it’s instinct. Raised in the underground city of Menzoberranzan a young Drizzt learns the skills of swordsmanship while trying not to fall to the dark beliefs of the cruel and evil Spider Goddess religion which dominates all aspects of the Drow society.
Aug 19, Justin rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was very curious to see what happened to Drizzt to make him grow up a normal human sorry elf being. As a child, Drizzt displayed amazing reflexes and coordination.
I am not sure forogtten much of it came from the author forvotten how much from already existing standard Forgotten Realms settings, so I will not attribute all of it to Salvatore’s creative writing.
He avoided the common pitfall of giving elves and dwarves ridiculous Celtic accents, which would most certainly have ruined the story! I’d love to see a book or two focused solely on Vierna. View all 6 comments. Homeland is a dark cruel place where kindness and compassion are weak and disgracefull traits that need to be eradicated.
There are a lot of positives to this series:
