Love this series. The books are great and the reader is great.
This is one of the best stories of it's kind I have read in a long time. It's not that the story is so riveting but the narrator is really awesome. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes children's stories about witchcraft and sorcery. If you liked Harry Potter and/or the 'Pern' series you'll like this one.
I first read this entire series (Belgariad) in high school, and reread it 10 years later. It's still as easy to read yet as enthralling as the first time, and I've recommended it to three others - they loved it too. David Eddings is a wonderful author, I've enjoyed many of his books, and if you like this series, please check out his books "Polgara" and "Belgarath" for more detailed accounts of Garion's aunt and grandfather's lives.
It took a few minutes to get into the story but once past the first moments you get hooked. The story itself has several moments were you will laugh at the situations the hero has to face and can relate to them even in your own life. If you like fantasy in general this book will appeal to you.
I have completed the entire Belgariad series. This is book four of five. It is an excellent series and I enjoyed the reader. Often times, action is slow , compared to other fantasy-adventure titles, but stick it out because I promise you will be hooked. I guess the best sign of how good the series was is that I am sad that they have completed their journey. I plan to begin listening to the Malloreon soon and am hopeful that the characters continue where they left off.
David Eddings was born in Washington in 1931 and grew up near Seattle. He graduated from the University of Washington and went on to serve in the US Army. Subsequently, he worked as a buyer for the Boeing Aircraft Company and taught college-level English. His career as a fantasy writer, with his wife Leigh, has been spectacular.
