Best-selling authors David and Leigh Eddings welcome fans 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.

Cameron Beierle the Best Narrator
I read this book when it was first released. I love all of Eddings books of the 2 series this book relates to. Back in 2013 I bought this audio when it had a different narrator. It was ok, did not like some of his pronunciations but put up with it anyway. I just found out that this audiobook has been re-released with Cameron Beierle narrating and I HAD to buy it!! He is the best.
This audio book is possibly better than the print version. Narration is spectacular.
There were many memorable moments.
I haven't listened to Cameron Beierle's other performances, but I am going to buy the audio book versions of the Belgariad series (even though I have the printed books) just to enjoy his narration. This is because I enjoyed Belgarath so much that I am listening to it for a second time...that's 32 hours each time!
yes. I used every opportunity to listen to this book...even during my outdoor running, instead of a playlist.
The storyline was very entertaining. I have read many comments about Eddings not being the most complex fantasy writer. I'm sure that's true. He is however very good IMO in building the characters in his books. I also note that Eddings seems to have similar characters in his different series however that didn't really bug me. Overall, when I read Eddings works, I feel relaxed and am generally looking forward to picking up again where I left off. Belgarath is one of my favourites!
