5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but leave till last!!!!, 9 Jan 2012
This review is from: Belgarath the Sorcerer (Kindle Edition)
The whole series (i am currently upto book 2 of the Malloreon) has been fantastic. Brilliantly written, gripping and well paced.
A tip though. Start in the order they were written.

Begin with the Belgariad, then the Malloreon. Then and only then read Belgarath the Sorceror and Polgara the Sorcerous.

I followed some peoples tips on here and read them out of sequence (starting with Belgarath and Polgara) This was a mistake.
Belgarath and Polgara although acting as sequels and filling in the characters of these two are written as a reminiscence of the events and thus do contain a few quite important spoilers.
If you haven't read the books before do yourself a favour and save these until last in the order they were meant to be in. Get to know the characters and events in Belgariad and Malloreon first. Then return to these 'prequels'
Trust me, you will enjoy them more this way.

Anyway this slight gripe done with i have enjoyed and am currently gripped by these books. The Eddings' have to be one of my favourite couple of writers. The Elenium as well is highly recommended. Possibly more so than this series. Sparhawk and is horse are fantastic!!!
