I didn't like this as much as Exile and Homeland, but I still liked it nonetheless. His journeys travel to the surface to a world he's not use to. But he feels that's where he belongs, rather than his world he comes from which is full of hatred and despair. Great book, definitely recommend reading this one.

Admittedly this was not my favorite book of the trilogy. I believe I had higher hopes for the drow on the surface. However, it was ultimately worth the read to complete the Drizzt trilogy.

I do believe that this was the best book of the series. I really enjoyed the Dark Elf's struggles. It was written far better than the first two books, especially Homeland. I do think the author could put in greater detail surrounding the characters that are in and around Drizzt. The one thing I think that makes this series a little different than other fantasy is that the character detailing and the world building is far simpler. It does take away from the story, but it also makes the book move along much faster.

Soujourn captivated me from the second I picked it up.

Now I am ready to read the Icewind Vale series. Enjoyed the beginnings of Drizzt.

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.

It was great to see that the cover art has been redone to better reflect Drizzt's age.

I thought this was the strongest of the Dark Elf Trilogy. A quick read with a good deal of action, but also a lot growth in Drizz't as a character. This definitely primed me to get into the Icewind Dale Trilogy.

Salvatore doesn't write great literature, his books are the written equivalent of a Michael Bay movie, but that's not such a bad thing at times. Sojourn was a fun ride.

it was good. small compared to what I usually read, but a nice "snack" between meals.

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.

A light, shallow fantasy read. These are very surface books aimed at a reader with no discerning taste.

That is not a bad thing :-) We all need light brainless books to read every once in awhile and these 3 stories tell a great tale. You don't have to worry about getting bogged down with the characters, you simply swing along for the adventures, and adventures there be, in spades.

From warring drow, to undead, to Underdark horrors, to goblins, giants, other plane beings, to kind elves, to little human boys and girls, Drizz't meets them all. Great escapism reading.

"Sojourn is R.A. Salvatore's exciting conclusion to The Dark Elf Trilogy, set in the FORGOTTEN REALMS fantasy world from TSR, Inc."

Far above the merciless Underdark, Drizzt Do'Urden fights to survive the elements of Toril's harsh surface. The young drow geings a sojourn through a world entirely unlike his own --even as he evades the dark elves of his past. He begins to understnad his new home and it's inhabitants, but acceptance among the surface-dwellers doesn't come easily.
