The Belgariad, What a Read!!!,
This review is from: The Belgariad (Vol 1): Volume One: Pawn of Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, Magician's Gambit (Paperback)
I first read the Belgariad series in the early eighties, I read them to my fiancee when we were house sitting for his mother. In a way we kind of grew up with the main character Garion.
Each book put us further onto the edge of our seats!
David (and his wife Leigh) have got to be two of the best fantasy writers that we have today. Not only do you become enthralled with the story, but you cannot help falling for each character on the quest. Like all good reads there are sad, funny, and scary moments, even unlikely love. I cannot recommend this series of books and the second series, The Mallorean, enough. It's perfect for the younger teenager, as it has magic, love, fighting and intrigue, lots to keep them reading. If you want to try to read some fantasy, then look no further!
