As with Belgarath the Sorcerer, this book's narration was an abomination. My absolute favorite set of books, and listening to Cameron read the Belgariad and the Mallorean, I was absolutely astounded at the poor choice of narrators for these later two books. Once you got past Cameron's introduction (he has a funny way of saying spokane washington) he did great. These later two were awful.
Disciple of the written word and Audible fanatic. I am an Urban and Epic Fantasy Fan. I also enjoy some Paranormal Romance.
This is one of those stories that shouldn't be read without first reading David Eddings other books. I love Polgera and all the other characters from the Belgariad. I am glad to finally learn more about her she was such a mystery that needed solving. David and Leigh are a great team. Dina Pearlman is a perfect pick for the voice of Polgera.
I had recently listened to "Belgarath the Sorcerer" really enjoyed it. My problem is, Dina Pearlmen's pronunciation on place and character names was so far off from the other book that it took me a while to realize whom or where she was speaking of. If you are going to be an audio book narator. You should have at least a passing aquaintance with the story and charactors.
this is the 12th book in the series and I was extremely disappointed that so many names of peoples and places where pronounced wrong. other than that it is what I expected and was a good book.
I Love this book. Of course, you have to have gone through the previous books before you start on this one, but this book both fills inn some questions and give answers to Things you didn't know you were wondering about, and to top it of you get a facinating and exiting story as well. You may know how the story ends, but the Eddings know how to keep you interested despite that. Enjoy!
I've read and re-read this entire series several times and love it. Only complaint with the narrator for this book is she changes the pronunciation of some of the names from what the other narrators have used in the other books.
The only issue I had was that the narrator didnot pronounce some of the names correctly. I think it would have benefited her to listen to the narrations of the other books in the series to keep the pronunciation consistent. She has a pleasant voice although she didn't have much variation in her character portrayals, Beldin and the twins were almost identical and she tended to give the woman characters all high squeaky voices except for Polgara and her mother. Still all in all I enjoyed the reading. I am a big fan of the Belgariad and I am looking forward to listening to the sequel series the Mallorian next.
