There are 2 things that save this book. First, the environment that surrounds the story is incredible, original, and beautifully rendered. Second, the main character, Drizzt, is deep, complex, and exciting.

Other than that, the book was fairly disappointing. The supporting characters are pretty weak. The story is incredibly predictable and way too convenient at times. There were far too many instances where one of the characters just happened to have something in his pocket (that had never been m
Fine enough, with one or two interesting notes, as when Drizzt sets off on a noble quest to find a wizard to save his polymorphed friend--and then the polymorphed friend kills the wizard. Things tend to be a little convenient for Drizzt: he's hunted by a great evil and captured by another great evil, and then the two evils mostly kill each other.

(There's also some subplots that feel like they should be longer, as if they got cut down from the book these are based on. Like: Drizzt's evil mother
Once I got into this one, I could not put it down. The tale Drizzt continues as the Drow now goes on a self-imposed exile. However, this is like other tales of the loner that others can't seem to leave alone. His House chooses to hunt him down, and they get the "perfect" hunter for the job. It has been ten years since the events in the previous volume, and Drizzt is struggling with loneliness, accompanied only by his panther friend. However, he manages to find new friends. Overall, this was a go ...more

In this volume, the adventures of Drizzt continues as he leaves the city where he grew up. I liked this volume, but I had expected that we would finally get to leave behind all the internal political squabbling which was my least favorite part of the previous book. But there was still plenty of that, so that was sort of disappointing. Nonetheless, it was a good adventure, well told, and because it was mostly just about Drizzt the continuing difficulties being able to tell one Drow from another d ...more

As others have said, Drizzt is great, the environment is great, story is a bit bland. The brain massage thing is just as wacky in the graphic novel as it is in the book.

But, that said... the graphic novel is a great way to get through it if you want the backstory quickly before moving on to book 3.

I do REALLY dislike the graphic version of Jaraxle -he looks like a Marvel comicbook villain. Blech. I just don't see even low rent Drow citizens dressing like pirates.

And its all slowly coming back to me now. In color and in representation. The Ithilids are beautiful and so are the Gnomes. The side story of Clacker is nicely covered and still saddening. The art continues to impress and I can't wait to finish the this one to catch up with Drizzt as he reaches the surface. The last frame of sunshine bathing his face leaves an everlasting impression on the eyes! Time to surface

The second installment of the graphic novel portrayal of Drizzt and his many adventures and choice to ultimately escape the Underdark and venture to the surface world. This was even better than book one. I love coming back to this story after so many years and being able to view the wonderful artwork the Devil's Due guys put into this collection.

Just like most movie versions of a book, there is no comparison to the written word. Although I enjoyed the visual element and being able to see what I had so thoroughly enjoyed reading, the graphic novel seems rushed in places and doesn't do the book justice.

Huhhuh. En varsinaisesti ollut unohtanut keskusaivoja, mutta illithidiepisodin koko hämmentävyys oli unohtunut. En ehkä pääse yli aivohieronnasta.

I actually enjoyed the Graphic Novel version better then the prose novel. The later, although I did enjoy it, moved a bit too slow for my taste.

The art is good. Fast-paced and exciting, this was easy to get into even though it was the first R.A. Salvatore work (well, in graphic novel form, but still...) that I read.
Aug 20, 2010 Dave rated it liked it
The focus on Drizzt wandering in the Underdark seems far too random, and the intrigue of the first novel is pretty much gone.

A good version of the novel. A bit simplistic, but that's to be expected. Kind of like watching the movie as opposed to reading the book.
