Publisher's Summary

The infant son of Garion and Ce'Nedra had been foully kidnapped. And thus, they begin the great quest to rescue the child, with the immortal Belgarath the Sorcerer, his daughter Polgara the Sorceress, and,inevitably, the little Drasnian, Silk. Guided by the Orb of the god Aldur, their way leads through the foul swamps of Nyissa, then into the lands of the Murgos, where they must face a horrible danger to not only themselves, but to all of mankind. For the Dark Prophesy had not vanished when Garion slew the evil god Torak. Instead, it had fled to Zandramas, who planned to use the child in a rite that would insure that Dark would triumph over Light. Thus continues the epic quest, across new lands and among strange peoples.

Please, don't say "horror" anymore...

The story is every bit as good as I remember it. The narrator has difficulty with pronunciation of many words, such as "horror", which has says as "hawrawuhr" I find myself making fun of it aloud whenever he says that word. Funny, he has no trouble with the word "terror". The performance is inconsistent, though the accents do tend to follow the basic patterns set by Eddings as the analogues for the different races. All Sendarians tend to speak with exactly the same English accent, and the narrator's interpretation of Belgarath is a complete rip-off of Gandalf from the movie version of Lord Of The Rings. No matter how old Garion gets, he still talks like he did when he was a little boy.

I am still glad that this series came out in audio...it was always one of my favorites.

My favourite stories butchered.

I love this series. With all my heart. I've read the books more times than I can count and loved each and every read.

I was delighted to find them on Audible. Aaannnndddd then I started listening.

The narrator obviously pronounces the names differently to me and that's fine.

BUT!!!
For pity's sake!! Quay is pronounced key!! And there past tense of light is lit not lighted!!! Every time I hear his pronunciation gaffs it makes me cringe.

His timing and pacing is often off too. He breaks sentences in such a way as to change their meaning or make their meaning less clear

I'd pay for these books again JUST to have them read by someone else.

I rarely take the time to write full reviews but I can't keep my peace any longer.
