I'm slowly exploring what I can of the Realms. I'm interested in trying at least one book, though I already know what I'll be reading, experienced as I am with Star Wars. I probably won't be able to avoid the dreaded elfs, but something sans dragons is equably preferable. My key advantage is that as a new entrant regurgitated material would be new material for me. Where do I choose . . . What's Denning's books like there?
