Enjoyable Book for a Forgotten Realms Fan or Any Other Nerd
Nerd me up...nerd me down. I read this book when I was about 17, right after playing Baldur's Gate (a very popular PC game of the 1990s). That game introduced me to the Forgotten Realms universe and this book bolstered my interest in that franchise without making me feel like a "noob." Over a decade later I am pleasantly surprised to find that it is still an entertaining tale that is well written. Its not Hemingway, Shakespeare, or [Insert Classic/Groundbreaking Author of Your Choice Here], but it is solid entertainment with better character development than I expected. I appreciated the author's reliable format of alternating chapters from one time period to the other. I'd write more positive comments but it's 3:09AM and I'm sort of drunk.
P.S. When I sampled the audio for this book I thought the guy's voice sounded super annoying. After an hour or so of hearing him I no longer felt that way. He's pretty good at altering his intonation (or whatever it's called) to enunciate different emotions as well as different characters.
