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.

A well read piece, only marred, somewhat, by one or two mispronunciation, most particularly of the word “quay” which the reader pronounces as “kway”. It should, of course be pronounced like the word “key”.
Another book in this enjoyable series. Well worth either reading or
Iistening to. Great fun.
