Reviews Sojourn (Forgotten Realms: The Dark Elf Trilogy, #3; Legend of Drizzt, #3)

  • Evgeny
    Drizzt the Dark Elf comes to the surface world and tries to find his place in there. Nobody wants a dark elf living among people (wood elves, dwarves, etc.) due to firm belief dark elves are up to no good. There, I just gave you away the plot of the whole book, all 300 pages of it. Does it sound boring? If it does it is because the book is boring; the most boring one of the trilogy. When I started on this one I was excited. I hoped to see interes...

    Drizzt Do'Urden attempts to find himself on the surface; arguably a more fascinating journey of self-exploration than all the young and rich Westerners who go to find themselves in Thailand or India (no offense to Thailand or India).Anyway, Sojourn is another enjoyable instalment in the saga of Drizzt. This one wraps up the trilogy neatly, takes it into more interesting territories of storytelling, and sets everything up for where Salvatore's sto...

    This final book in the Dark Elf trilogy got off to a flying start for the first third of the book and then rather disappointingly stagnated.I thought Drizzt hitting the surface world would be a ton of fun, and the early stages were promising with a few hilarious interactions and plenty of drama. The story arc involving the farm family Drizzt encounters was excellent. Unfortunately it was all downhill after that with Drizzt just aimlessly plodding...

    Un libro precioso que cumplió absolutamente todas las expectativas con las que me quedé al finalizar El exilio, cuando Drizzt decide salir a vivir a la superficie.Era muy claro que no iba a ser fácil, la mayoría de sus encuentros con algunas de las razas de la superficie terminan con algún tipo de conflicto, pero cada momento en que alguien logra ver más allá de la estigmatizada apariencia de su raza, hace que se te estruje el corazón. Po...

    I didn't like this as much as the other two.I believe the first in this trilogy was my favorite, and then it slowly started going down hill from there.Drizzt Do'Urden has travelled out of the caves into the surface world. He struggles to find his place in a world where dark elves are feared, and where very few can get past the color of his skin.This book was very slow moving to me. As Drizzt works hard in order to overcome prejudices, there was a...

    Έχοντας πλέον απομακρυνθεί απο τις υπόγειες σπηλιές του Άντερνταρκ και έχοντας αφήσει πίσω όλα όσα τρομέρα συνέβησαν στον ίδιο, αλλά και σε πρόσωπα που αγαπούσε, ο Ντρίτζτ Ντο Έρντεν περιπλανιέται στον γεμάτο κινδύνους υπέργειο κόσμο, με βασικό ...

    There was a lot going on in this one. Drizzt spends like 7 years on the surface through a series of tragic events and misunderstandings. He finds acceptance (though from afar) from one of his surface elf kin and a very old blind human ranger. He defeats an Orc leader and tricks a dragon along the way, all while getting chased by bounty hunter Roddy McGristle, a crazed and less imposing version of John Wick."He killed my dog!" Roddy growled."Don't...
  • Jarek
    Awesome conclusion to the first trilogy. Just what you would expect from this kind of novel. Quick, easy with enough action and world/character building to keep you interested, leaving room for the many books that come after. 4 stars

    www.melissa413readsalot.blogspot.comOnly the third book in and I'm still loving Drizzt Do'Urden!In this book Drizzt is trying to live in the real world now and no longer in the Underdark. He is trying to learn how to live in the sunlight without going blind so to speak and traverse this strange new world. He still has his wonderful black panther friend, Guenhwyvar. Together they have to find a place they can call home while fighting off giants, o...

    Of the Drizzt “origins” trilogy this one moved me the most, and contained the most surprises. You can tell Salvatore in this book is relieved to get out of the underdark. He fills the book with lush descriptions of the woods, streams, the loneliness and beauty of the wild places. He also describes the pioneer spirit of a community on the outskirts of civilization. He brings Drizzt agonizingly close to becoming accepted by a real family, only ...

    Liked less because the Underdark suddenly went somewhere, and - a blind goodly ranger with a whole heap of animal friends? Come on. AND a major thing. Drizzt has always seemed to be a fighter as far as I'm concerned. No ranger-thing there. It's just weird. He rarely shows any ranger skills at all, except for sneaking around - and that's something any light-weight rogue/fencer can do. Plus, he's a drow, for goodness's sake. He could never have gra...

    "Sojourn" is the last book in the Dark Elf Trilogy, and what an epic conclusion it is! This book has a much different tone than the first two. Whereas the first two books took place in underground worlds, this book brings Drizzt Do'Urden to the surface. R. A. Salvatore does a magnificent job portraying Drizzt in a sympathetic light as the dark elf tries desperately to assimilate into his new home. From his bumbling attempts to befriend a family o...

    Τον R.A. Salvatore δεν τον είχα πάρει με καλό μάτι και έτσι απέφευγα να ασχοληθώ μαζί του, τελικά όμως η περιέργεια νίκησε και έπιασα αυτή την τριλογία. Το αποτέλεσμα τελικά μάλλον δεν με ικανοποιεί αν και αναγνωρίζω ότι δεν είναι κακά βιβλία. Ίσως αν τα ...

    Third volume of back-story for Drizzt Do’Urden, drow fighter extraordinaire. This is the volume that connects to the Icewind Dale novels which Salvatore wrote before the Dark Elf Trilogy.Our hero makes the shift from living as an exile in the Underdark to an existence in the unfamiliar world above ground. While he wasn’t accepted in his birth society because of his sense of morality, he is now judged according to his racial background by thos...
  • Esma Tezgi
    Kara Elf Üçlemesi bu kitapla son buldu ama bu üçleme Drizzt Efsanesi için iyi bir başlangıçtı. Drizzt'i sevdim ve diğer kitaplarını da okumak istiyorum. Seri biraz klişelerden biraz özgünlüklerden beslense de ortaya çıkan sonuç iyi, insanda devamını okuma isteği uyandırıyor, bir şekilde kendini sevdiriyor. Serinin en sevdiğim yönlerinden biri -kesinlikle- Drizzt'in ruhsal karmaşası.
  • Doug Winenger
    So many writers regurgitate the same themes, ideas, and characters in their books that the lack of original ideas or thoughts is often disappointing.The Dark Elf Trilogy uncovers the previously unveiled world known as "The Underdark". While many creatures in this realm are fierce, barbaric, or evil, none compare to the race known as "Dark Elves". The depth of their savagery, brutality, and cunning is inspired by generations of purely evil practic...
  • Micheal
    More rhetoric.So I got to the Drizzt story I really wanted to read in the first place, and this series has lost momentum for me. The Crystal Shard (the next book in the series) sits unread on my ipad and I don't know if i'll get to it or not.Sojourn had its intriguing segments; Im still interested in the fundamental concept of Drizzt. But once again, I was put off by Salvatores style and presentation. Ultimately unsatisfying.Im left to wonder at ...

    3.0 stars. Good, solid sword and sorcery novel set in the Forgotten Realms. The part I really liked about this novel is the plethora of interesting characters and races including the Barghest whelps (Goblin werewolves) and the winter wolves (larger wolves with human-like intelligence) were very cool. Unfortunately, I did not find the plot as interesting as I would have liked and didn't think the background of interesting creatures (strengths/weak...
  • Basia
    Well, I read the first 3 books in this series in just under 2 weeks, I think. And that was effortless, as these books just WANT to be consumed! I cannot believe there are 11 more to read!This book, like the 2 before it, was fun to read, did a great job of continuing the story, and had such a colorful cast of characters (referring to the species that appeared throughout this book, AND the series so far, as well as how they were portrayed). That wa...

    I'm really enjoying the world.
  • F.T.
    I love these books. Sojourn makes an interesting contrast to Book 2, Exile. In that one, Drizzt is prowling around the vast Underdark in survival mode, a force unto himself, fighting a fantastic array of monsters and fiends while being stalked by Matron Malice and her spirit wraith. It was gloomy, creepy, and his loneliness and isolation are heartbreaking. If not for a brighter foray with the gnomes, he'd have fallen into something purely instinc...
  • Traci
    Honestly. Eh, kind of meh. I started this set of Drizzt books thinking they were favorites but I find myself looking more forward to stuff that is coming up. Homeland was great fun and gave good insight into the Drow....well homeland. Exile was okay but mainly for the ongoing struggles of the Do'Urden clan. The whole purpose of the book to get Drizzt to finally leave the underdark. And again this book, Sojourn, all lead up to the last fifty pages...
  • Patrick
    Enjoyed this more than the first two - probably due to the setting, after all those subterranean passages of the first two, nice to finally get above ground!!Not a great deal of story as such, but a nice easy and enjoyable read (I read it in a day!)
  • Beste
    Uhm.. This felt like a filler book.
  • Crystal
    Easily some of the most enjoyable high fantasy I've ever read.
  • Fantasy Literature
    Sojourn is the last book in Salvatore’s DARK ELF TRILOGY, the prequel novels he wrote to establish Drizzt’s origin story after the success of his earlier trilogy ICEWIND DALE. While the first two DARK ELF novels, Homeland and Exile, are charming enough little stories to entertain on their own merits, Sojourn is the point at which the story begins to suffer for the necessity of ticking certain narrative boxes to get Drizzt where he needs to be...
