Weird combination that ALMOST works.

I've read a few of Salvatore's Drizzt books and thought they were pretty good. I'm also a big fan of Ice-T, either in Law and Order:SVU or his metal band Bodycount - the guy just has a great voice!
So I saw this short story read by him and I thought it was just such a strange combination that it HAD to be cool.
And it kind of is, but ultimately isn't the best book you'll listen to this year.
The story is okay, presumably setting up a new character for later full length novels, but not a lot happens and I felt like this was probably aimed more at fans who are familiar with this era of the stories.
Ice-T's reading is quite good, but it IS reading. He doesn't try to act any of the parts and never varies his voice when it comes to different characters. He reads a woman's lines in the same voice as he reads any of the men's. To be fair, Ice-T putting on a girly voice would have seemed pretty hilarious so it's not surprising he avoided it, but it does mean the performance is lacking something.
It doesn't cost much due to the short running time, and it's overall a decent listen, so I can recommend it - just don't expect too much.
