Publisher's Summary

Legends tell of the evil god Torak coveting the power of the Orb of Aldur, until he was defeated in a final battle. Prophecy also speaks of a time when he will again awaken to seek dominance over all the world. Now the Orb has been stolen by a priest of Torak, and that time is at hand. Belgarath the Sorcerer and his daughter, Polgara the arch-Sorceress, are on the trail of the Orb, seeking to regain it before the final disaster. With them goes Garion, a simple farm boy only months before, but now the focus of the struggle. He had never believed in sorcery, wanting no part of it. Yet with every league they travel, the power is growing within him, forcing him into acts of wizardry that he can't accept. His fate is inextricably woven into the fabric of an unfolding prophecy for glory or doom.

Narrator does really bad accents

The accents the narrator does are really hard to listen to. They are like horrible interpretations of racial stereotypes and used without any particular regards to the locals in the story. It's not comic, it's just bad. The producers should have told the guy to just read normally. I can't continue with the series because of the accents making me crazy.

Good story and narration

Book was entertaining and the narrator does a good job with different character voices. Some odd pauses here or there but not too much a distraction.
