  • Magician's Gambit: The Belgariad, Book 3

    Story
    (646)

    Ce'Nedra, Imperial Princess of Tolnedra, is confused. Everyone knows the tales of the Orb protecting the West from the evil god Torak are just silly legends. But here she is, forced to join a quest to recover that stolen Orb. No one believes in sorcery, but Garion's aunt and grandfather seem to be the fabled sorcerers Polgara and Belgarath. Even young Garion is learning to do sorcery. He's just a farm boy, totally unsuitable for an Imperial Princess. Yet for some reason, she has the urge to comfort him.

    If you could sum up Magician's Gambit in three words, what would they be?

    Magical, Compelling, Envigorating


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Prince "Silk" Keldar would have to be my favorite! The quick witted and slick-tongued little man never fails to surprise, impress, and humor me.


    What does Cameron Beierle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Cameron Beierle is his own cast. The voice talents used throughout the series is never duplicated between characters, and always premeditated. It's as if Cameron is so engrossed into the story that he feels what each character feels and knows how to portray their tiredness by yawning and talking at teh same time, or their mysticism with a inquiring tone, and, of course, malicious humor, as perfectly portrayed by Silk. I must admit, that if he doesn't play the voice of Silk when ever a movie is made, I'll be sorely disappointed with almost any other portrayal of the sharp faced and sinical little prince.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Admittedly, I listened to it over the course of 4 sittings, because of minions running around the place, however, it was captivating enough that when I listened to it while dead tired and falling asleep, I stayed awake for a couple of more hours because of the compulsion to know what Beierle is gonna say next.

    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.

    How could the performance have been better?

    Im almost positive that david eddings would not have disappounted me but whoever cast the narrarater needs to be fired in conjunction with J. P. Linton. I couldnt make it 4 minutes into what im positive would be another amazing tale of Mr. Wolf because of him. Recast and rerecord and ill buy it again, till then, im returning this and going to a book store.
