HOMELAND
This is a story that I've read several times and is one of my favorite series. Drizzt, though a bit naive at times, makes for a wonderful hero in his struggle to overcome his upbringing in the city of Menzoberranzan.

EXILE
As for the story, this is one I've read a few times now. I can't say that it gets better with each read, because I tend to find plot holes and after awhile Drizzt's whining gets on a girl's nerves. I guess I prefer the hero who's not filled with continual angst and learns how to just deal with things and not looking for the reader's sympathy. I've learned to mostly skim the "reflections" part that are in first person in these books.

Regardless of how Drizzt can annoy me, the story surrounding him is fun. I tend to really like the supporting cast and the over-the-top craziness of some of the villains. I'll probably be re-reading this one again in a few years just for that reason alone.

SOJOURN
This is one of those series that I've loved for years. However, after a couple of reads, I did get sick of all of Drizzt's whining in his "recollection" segments that are in the first person narrative. He reminds me of a teenager with a lot of angst issues. The overall story is wonderful, but after awhile, his feeling sorry for himself gets old.
