Summary

The epic tale of everyone's favorite dark elf, Drizzt Do'Urden, reaches new heights!

Drizzt Do'Urden struggles with his own inner voices, voices that call him back to the pitiless depths of the Underdark. But louder still are the voices of his newfound friends, and the dream that drives Bruenor Battlehammer on to reclaim Mithral Hall. Time and again they're told to turn back, that some dreams can never be fulfilled, but on they fight - together.

A great listen for any DM

Running dnd campign in fearun, the location descriptions alone make the listen. The assain as the mirror of a main character will be an element i use in my games, or i am a bearded gnome.

Fantastic, didn't want it to end

I've been following this series along now for a while. Being a fan of DnD from my childhood, and having played Baldaur's Gate the characters are well known to me so I feel a great connection to each of them. Fantastic and moving onto the next now!! haha

Far superior to its predecessor

A much better written and well paced book, this is a stunning improvement over the shambling mess that was the Crystal shard. A little derivative of the hobbit in places but ultimately a fantastic read for any dnd nerd.

Another amazing story

Salvatore has perfection in his art of story telling so that he keeps you hooked constantly. Even all these years since first reading this trilogy I'm gripped by the story.

Great!

Loving the whole world of drizzt so far. excellently performed by B.B. I really enjoy the complexities of the characters and the fact that the whole world is properly fleshed out, not just shaded in to suit the story.

Like a bad rip-off of The Hobbit...

I'll try to be a little fair here... D&D in general is heavily influenced by Tolkien.
THAT SAID... when the plot consists of a quest to recover an ancestral dwarven city full of treasure and guarded by a dragon, and the journey involves a dangerous climb through the mountains, a respite in a goofy village and then a really dark, dangerous and murky place... not to mention that there is an actual hobbit ("halfling") with a dangerous artifact along for the journey... then you know you've got a little bit out of "influenced" territory and well into "I can't write my own plots" territory.

Couple that with RAS's usual all-explaining, zero-tension writing style and dull, monotonous combat... and what you end up with is a really bad knock-off of The Hobbit.

I guess I shouldn't be too hard on him for the terribly boring combat descriptions. It reads like typical D&D combat, but with the endings to every encounter just that little bit contrived to ensure extra predictability. There is no flow to it. It is clunky, sequential and oh so very tedious. I actually fell asleep on the train listening to the description of a fight scene and when I woke up about 15 minutes later it was still going on and I hadn't missed anything important.

I'd rather be playing D&D myself... These are hours of my life I will never get back.

Forever Friends

Where does Streams of Silver rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Great listen.

What does Victor Bevine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

V.B. always does a great job bringing the books to life.

Any additional comments?

Always a good listen. Love every story so far. Looking forward to listening to the rest.
Once again, check Drizzt out if you have not already.

Narrator's Pronunciations are Bizarre

I'm listening to this series again after reading the books years ago. Overall, the narrator is wonderful, but there is one thing that makes the vein in my temple throb every time I hear it.

The pronunciation of ravine is a soft A with the I pronounced as a hard E (rəˈvēn). Nowhere, in no dictionary, is it pronounced ravin with a soft I (or like one of the Foresaken in Wheel of Time, for those familiar). This isn't an uncommon English word, so how did it get past both the editors and producers, even if the narrator doesn't know how to pronounce it?!?

Once I get over that bucket of cold water to the face each time I hear it, I can get back into the narrative, but it always jolts me out of the story for a few minutes.

I love this story, but...

I love this story, but the narrator pronounces some words in such a way as to make me feel like I just heard nails on a chalkboard (lived for instance). Fortunately these words are few and far between. He does alter his voice slightly for different characters so that is good.

Streams of Gold

As always the narrator did an excellent job. I enjoyed this book more than I enjoyed the Crystal Shard. Unlike the first book the tempo in Streams of Silver is more balanced with more interesting dialogue between characters and the battles more descriptive and in a way more flexible. If Salvatore wrote this book immediately after the Crystal Shard he improved dramatically in his writing style.

Learn how to say lived lol

I love the Drizzt books, and I would've gave it 5 stars but the narrator doesn't know how to pronounce the word "lived" and for some reason that gets on my nerves lol, other than that everything else is great!

Victor Bevine should be fired

I absolutely love all of Salvatore's novels, particularly his Drizzt books, but please get rid of Victor Bevine. This guy is totally clueless when it comes to pronouncing the English language and his sultry voice cannot imitate anything remotely evil or tough sounding. To the editor for failing to catch all the incorrect pronunciations, look up "macabre", and OMG, every time I hear Bevine say "short lived" I literally scream out "it's LIVED you moron" , you should be fired for not doing your job... both of you took a great book and made it stupid because of your combined ignorance

Great

A great continuation to the series. This is not a standalone book.

If I had one criticism it’s that this isn’t a happy book, more like empire strikes back. Onto the third!

Fun and interesting follow up.

I like this story more than I liked "The Crystal Shard". Good interplay between the characters. Good questing and discovery. Good conflicts between the main powers and interests.

The performance is good and enjoyable.

Some characters are less interesting than others. Only a few characters seem to have real depth. Other characters seem a bit forced in their loyalties and emotions. Some choices seem out of character and there are foreseeable oversights that weaken the organic nature and believability of the story progression. Takes a bit from the immersion factor.

Overall an enjoyable book, despite flaws. Definitely some gems to enjoy and capture the imagination.

Great continuation in the story of Icewindale!

Enjoyed this book even more than the first! The characters are well developed and the story is fairly fast paced. Great narrator!
