This was the first Salvatore book that I have read. A friend told me I should read the Drizzt books and I am glad I did. Drizzt is an excellent character and the plot is very interesting. I am looking forward to reading all of the books!

The Dark Elf Trilogy is the story of, but not the creation of the character (regarding our time frame; it's a prequel of sorts) one of the most famous fantasy characters in the literary world: Drizzt Do'Urden, the archetype of the drow (dark elf).
It tells of Drizzt's youth, training, etc... in his home, Menzoberranzan and I consider it one of the better book(s) regarding character development and action that I've read.
Picture a child born in a partially successful (there's still good guys out there somewhere) Nazi-like nation that feels like there's just something morally wrong with what he's doing. His problem is that if he shows those emotions, he disappears. So he has to disappear and, in doing so, face the rugged environs and other drow that can kill him on the way out to escape it.
We see a youth torn between his moral instincts in a primarily (aside from some of its slaves and a couple of others) evil city full of drow, an almost entirely and inherently evil, backstabbing, and power-thirsty offshoot of elves.
At the same time, we see him train, then fight, with his trade mark dual-scimitar fighting style. I didn't see that used again until the Transitions series, if I'm correct; although the dual-weapon style seems to be popular among the drow.

This book was reccomended to me by a friend, and when I started reading it I couldn't put it down. Drizzt is just a very interesting yet complicated character, but it makes you like him. I have not regreted reading these books at all and am starting to read others. I am so glad I took my friends advice.

My cousing brought Homeland with him when he came to visit and said I must read it. I did and immediately had to have the whole series. Of course my small town library had only like the 5th and 13th book, so I turned to trusty B&N and started buying the series. Great reads, all of them, and I have discovered new characters to add to my already too large collection of favorites.

My favorite Salvatore book. Basically, it is about Drizzt growing up and the choices he has to make between 'fitting in' and holding to who he is. And it raises the age old question of whether we are products of our environment or the environment is a product of us. I found the dark elf society fascinating in its 'lawful chaos'. When I read the first published book of Drizzt (The Icewind Dale Trilogy) I thought he was a little .... self defeating but with this book I now understand why he is the way he is.

Wow, I was just blown away by this book. The extreme, yet delicate atmosphere, pratically blossomed with detail. Not one thing was left undetailed, yet somehow he still managed to keep it interesting and eventful. I have to say this is the book that just blew away any other book for me. The language, the flowing writing was simply amazing. I recommend this to all around me to buy this book. It is considered a MUST HAVE!

If you enjoy fantasy at all, this is a must-read. Classic, artful style, unbelievable story, dynamic and relatable characters, consistent and creative environment, and an overpowering message...this book has it all. Rarely have I ever come across a piece of literature able to evoke such strong emotions. If you are considering purchasing the book, do it. You will not be disappointed.

I had read the Icewind Dale Trilogy before this book and often wondered way Drizzt Do'Urden has left his home world. This trilogy should be read first before any of the other trilogys. I found that it was written well and it kept me interested from begin to end.
