Overview

Belgarath the Sorcerer by David Eddings, Leigh Eddings

Bestselling authors David and Leigh Eddings welcome readers back to the time before The Belgariad and The Malloreon series. Join them as they chronicle that fateful conflict between two mortally opposed Destinies, in a monumental war of men and kings and Gods.

When the world was young and Gods still walked among their mortal children, a headstrong orphan boy set out to explore the world. Thus began the extraordinary adventures that would mold that youthful vagabond into a man, and the man into the finely honed instrument of Prophecy known to all the world as Belgarath the Sorcerer.
Then came the dark day when the Dark God Torak split the world asunder, and the God Aldur and his disciples began their monumental labor to set Destiny aright. Foremost among their number was Belgarath. His ceaseless devotion was foredoomed to cost him that which he held most dear--even as his loyal service would extend through echoing centuries of loss, of struggle, and of ultimate triumph.

Belgarath is beyond doubt my favorite wizard/sorcerer type character. Witty, crotchety, honest, human, wise, everything a ancient powerful sorcerer should be. For those of you who are sticklers for details there are some contradictions between this book and the back story and history in the 2 series. Nothing major, just little things. Normally that kind of thing annoys me, but in this case could care less. Very good book. Though obviously you should read the Belgariad and the Mallorean first. Also great stories.

I have read both the Belgariad series as well as the Mallorean series and was happy as could be to see this book when it came out. I have since had to buy another copy because my first one got worn out from being read and reread. It was wonderful to see how Garath became Belgarath and how he progressed along his path. The background filled in the a lot of gaps in the basic story as well as the relationships among the characters of Polgara, Belgarath, Poledra and Beldin. It is definately a book to make you smile and laugh out loud as well as cry and gives one a chance to think of the "what if's". There is no doubt in my mind that these books and only the books that relate to the Belgariad and the Mallorean were inspired works, because I have not been impressed by anything else Eddings had to offer since then.

David Edding has done it again. After reading The Belgariad and The Malloreon i thought it couldn't get any better. I was proven wrong with the writing of this descriptive and detail novel of the life of the Sorceror, Belgarath. This is a book I would recommend to the most fickled reader. It's definitly a 5-star.

This is a wonderful tale. Fans of David Eddings will enjoy this book. Keeps the fresh style first presented in the Belgariad.

I read this after I read the Belgarion, the Mallorean series and Polgara and still learned something about the story! Extremely well written. To prove to you how good these books are, I had to order Begarath because it wasn't in the store and found the last copy of Polgara. My son loaned me the two series. I wanted to order these for my Nook, but alas, my son didn't have one (he does now) so that I could go back and read them again and again. The writing is so good that it has spoiled some of the other fantasy series I have read! You will not regret reading these books. This book, as did the others, had me hooked and I couldn't stop reading it until I was finished! If you love fantasy - you'll love this!
