Legend of Drizzt

Some generous soul(s) sent an enormous care package to Bagram, filled with brand new books. In there was "The Legend of Drizzt, Volume 1" a trade paperback omnibus. Since the first novel in the tome was "Homeland", the story of Drizzt Do'Urden's early life, I picked it up.

I didn't get around to reading it until a couple of weeks ago, while I'm waiting on Ryan to finish "House of Chains" so we can both move on to the next volume in the Malazan series.

When I read "Homeland" when it first came out in the 90s I was fascinated. The book drew me in and I couldn't stop reading. I'm not sure why now, because it's in a simple yet graceless YA style and horribly black-and-white. This is a world with "good races" and "bad races", which I found annoying.

At the end, I liked it but far from loved it. Merely okay is my assessment. zeonchar tells me other books about Drizzt are excellent and if I come across them I'll read them on her recommend. As for now, I need Chaos Space Marines to hack, slash and mutate wussy Drizzt out of my imagination.
