My husband bought the whole Belgariad (kindle edition) for me for Christmas, as I'm no longer able to read my paperback copies. I absolutely LOVE Eddings' worlds, and this one was the first we came into contact with, 20 years ago, and I STILL get the same amount of pleasure reading them! Try the Belgariad, you really WON'T be disappointed!

I first read this series as a teenager. To this day it is my favourite series and I have never found a series that is quite the same. The adventure continues and the highlights here is the bringing the Colt back to life after death in the cave where the Gods created the world and meeting Relg from the underground Caverns of Ulgoland. An excellent book.

If you've never read David Eddings, get it now. If you have, you'll know that he needs no recommendation: one volume of this calibre would be luck, two - coincidence, but the third confirms his writing as masterful and engaging. The novels are deceptively simple in style, but it is an elegant and skillful simplicity that reads quickly and yet conveys a powerful saga of myths and magic, heroes, heroines and all the other elements you could wish for in this genre.
This volume moves Garion further forward through his adventure, and the read is so quick I have already forgotten the detail of this section of the plot, being on Volume 5 currently. If you can afford it, get all five in one go, as I find I am halfway through each book before I know it, and the next arrives just before I finish the last, despite most seller's prompt service. The good news is, there are another series (The Malloreon) after that, as well as other supplementary novels and more, so I won't be lost for something to read for a while.

This must be the 4th or 5th time I've read this series, I love it every time.

Eddings has a beautiful eloquent style, vibrant characters and a non waffly descriptive talent that really takes you into the story. It's easy to follow and thoroughly satisfying read.

Would heartily recommend this series to anyone who loves a ruddy good fantasy.

Garion has matured a lot since the first book and here you see him start to realise that he has to face up to what he's a part of. This book definitely takes a darker turn and the reality of just what people are capable of, for good and bad, is shown. Another excellent instalment.

The third book in the series, I have swallowed these up in quick succession. the writing is great, really allows you to immerse yourself in this world without dragging you under with long descriptive paragraphs.

I think it is with particular skill that Eddings was able to discuss religions, Gods (as well s meeting a couple) without stating this is right and that is wrong. I feel it would be hard for this to cause offence or tension.

I cant wait to read the next book and watch all of our characters evolve and emerge

I loaned this series of books from a friend over ten years ago and recently was looking for something to read (After re-reading my Feist collection).

The story line is still fresh, I like the characters and I had forgotten the story line. A great read.

I have read the complete Belgariad series more times than I can remember so when I purchased a Kindle I just had to download the series to read on holiday. I love the way the characters are developed and grow up during the five books and the story telling although somewhat predictable is really good. I would definitely recommend the Belgariad series and the follow up series the Malloreon.
