Sereyna Posted July 16, 2004 Share Posted July 16, 2004 A year or so ago, I read the first 3 of R.A. Salvatore's books, The Crystal Shard, The Halflings Gem, and I can't remember the name of the other of the first 3. I read them, but they really didn't do it for me. I didn't connect with any of the characters, story's were ok ut not great, and all of that. Well, through many circumstances that I wont get into, I just picked of The Legacy. Im about 5 chapters in and I'm seeing pretty much the same stuff. Do his books get any better? I had heard that the Icewind Dale Trilogy were his first books, and that his writing gets far better afterwards, but thusfar I'm just not seein' it. My complaints-- Shallow characters who seem very unkillable ( C'mon, cant ya kill at least one off ? ),not deep enough storylines, and the always-happy endings. I WANT to like these books but so far they're not that great, IMO. Any thoughts? Oh BTW I wanted to pick up the Dark Elf Trilogy but they didnt have them at my bookstore, so I've just skipped ahead to the Legacy. As capable of inconvenience, and of some damage and debt to those that would act against my interests, I cannot f*^ng argue with dangerous.
