Read in October, 2003

The book that started it all! Tthe first time I read it was the first time I read fantasy (adult fantasy anyway). The book does live up to its legacy. It had been such a long time since I had read the book that I had forgotten a lot about it. I remembered all the basic plot lines, but the characters were quite different from those that I have come to know and love in the intervening decade. Drizzt has more of a roguish quality. One of his main drives in life is seeing and exploring new treasure. We don’t see that anymore. Also, getting to see Wulfgar in his original prideful and over-honorable self was really fun. Disappointingly Cattie-Brie didn’t get much play in this one, but I know there is better to come. Overall, the book is great. The action starts early and keeps pumping all through. It reads like an action movie, with very little down time, but still manages to build deep characters.
