meh. i remembered the Drizzt monologue chapters from his earlier books... and jumped over them. Why add those chapters? They don't add anything, it's not like they are great philosophical musings, they just increase the book's page number..
The regis and bruenor stories are OK, nothing special, but more interesting than the rest. The end of this book is a lukewarm and wet washcloth over your face. Just avoid it.
