Sharing a gift from my youth
on 6 December 1999
My mum bought me the first in the Belgariad series when I was 13 in 1983. I didn't start reading the book until a year later, but by then was completely hooked on the expanding story line.
I bought the next four books in one go and read them all in a matter of weeks.
I've just returned to the series in order to buy them for my nephew who is about to turn 13, about the age I started reading the series and the age of the main character in the series, Garian.
I would recommend these books (this series, mind you, not those that came after) for anyone who is a fan of the genre or whoever enjoyed Tolkien's 'Lord of the Rings'.
