Absolutely beyond awful. I have bought and read every David Eddings book since I was 12 and that is 30 years ago. Many of his books or series i read again and again, just simply not the case with this particular 4 book series. I read this one and even though it was slow to start, I gave it the benefit of the doubt as after all it is David Eddings. But they simply just get worse and worse. The books recap and reword the same events over nd over again, then tell the same accounts from different character views which are all the same if not just slightly reworded. You get the feeling this whole series of books started as a mildly entertaining single book then someone stepped in and padded it out to 4 books. So disappointing after the brilliance of all his previous work. This review is quite simple, dont buy them you wil be greatly disappointed.

Having read the Belgariad when at school and multiple times since, Tamuli/Elenium also a few times and even enjoying The Redemption of Althalus, I consider myself a fan of this author, so despite the poor reviews I finally took the plunge and read the book. If you're a fan you'll be disappointed, if you're not then you won't get far before giving up. There's simply no suspense. Every insoluble situation is sorted within a few pages, either by the Gods or by 'Longbow'. There's no attempt to stretch sub-plots more than a few pages, no character development, and Edding's normal whimsical sense of humour is rammed down the readers throats so often it skips funny and goes straight to aggravating. I like to have an authors complete works, but in this case I'm going to bin the book and pretend this series doesn't exist.

Ive always loved David Eddings but this book should never have been written never mind published I can't imagine why a great author would produce something as awful as this I couldn't even finish the book, I'm truly shocked

Having wirtten some good fantasy, the Eddings final effort is very disappointing. The Dreamers tries to stretch a fgairly basic story into four volumes, and only succeeds in repeating itself many times. Everything seems to be told at least twice, the story lines repeat over and over, and most of the characters are obviouslt just variations on those from earlier, and better, novels. Unless you have to read everything by the Eddings, don't bother with the Dreamers series.

Characters not as memorable as Belgariad, but a worthwhile read. I'd forgotten the plot, so nice to re-read a good story.
