5.0 out of 5 stars My first fantasy series!!, 28 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Belgariad (Vol 1): Volume One: Pawn of Prophecy, Queen of Sorcery, Magician's Gambit (Paperback)
Ah the belgariad, i first read this many years ago (late 80s i think) and i was hooked. Even now i reread the whole series when i'm waiting for something new to come out. (like the new wheel of time)
Some reviewers say its not as complex or "adult" as the wheel of time and/or anything by Feist, this is quite true, but if it hadnt been for the belgariad i wouldnt have read the wheel of time or Magician...
This is a must for any Fantasy fan, especially a young fan. I was roughly the same age as garion when i first read it and i travelled with him on his adventures... I like these books so much i recently gave copies to my nephew who is just starting to be into books as an intro to fantasy!!
I highly recommend this to anyone who hasnt read them yet (why not?). Admit it all you fans, you all want a grandfather like belgarath!!!

Not very often I read a review that makes me go "I feel exactly the same!" I was literally about to buy this for my nephew who I started on Pratchetts young books (Truckers, Diggers, Wings) and was thinking "is this too old for him?"...but you have totally convinced me that this will be perfect for him, as I was about 11 when I first read Eddings.

Sorry to disabuse you I am 76 years old and read David Eddings books when they were first in print, they are for any age, I have read and reread them and never fail to enjoy them, I introduced them to my youngest grandson who became a fan, I have the Belgariad the Mallorean, the Elenim and the Tamuli series in hardback and I would not part with them, long may David's fans enjoy his work, I just wish he would let us have more, he has a magnificent imagination
