If I had to describe this book in one word, the word would be "Fantastic!" The way the Author introduces the book, in a dialogue manner, intrigued me first off. Usually they are introduced with Scenery explanations. Salvatore's battle scene descriptions were absolutely magnanimous too. The way he described them in such depth! It was as if I was in a movie. I could visualize every little thing in the book as well as his other books. He's perhaps the most experienced Author at describing battle scenes, in my experience at least, and if you would like an introduction to a TRUE Fantasy adventure and a TRUE battle scene experience, this would DEFINITELY be the book for you to read!

I liked the book very much although I have not even read a fantasty book in my life. As ramina said the book was compulsory for us to read. I was really anxious about the book. But after reading 50 pages :D I began to like it of course. If you have not read any fantasy book in your life, "Homeland" can be a good choice for the beginning. Trust me!

The reason this book came to my hands was just because it was my homework,but after reading some ten pages, I couldn't stop myself... The thing that somehow shocked me was an absolutely female-dominated society of Menzoberranzan. Moreover, it's not just a female-dominated, it's a tyranny of females...this place may be an utopia for radical feminists I thought.Another fact taht drew my attention is an alienated personage- Drizzt Do'Urden. He has to follow the terrible,cruel rules of this wicked society and he cannot understand this wickedness, which is normal for other drows. I liked that in the end of the book Drizzt was able to leave this world,the thing which his father Zak never could do...
