There has been times when I've loved this series and times when I've really struggled to carry on. This one has finally done it for me. The start doesn't dove tail very well with the end of the previous book. Either I was asleep last time and missed bits, or this one referenced things not mentioned before. Either way I got a few hours into it and got hopelessly lost, bored and fed up, so I stopped listening and haven't returned to it in over a month. I'm done with this series now and my advise is don't waste your money.
I was a dubious at first on whether to get this, due to the negative comments about the narrator, Cameron Beierle. Having just finished it I can't for the life of me understand why.
His reading is clear, thoughtful, and thoroughly enjoyable. I loved the way his use of accents and intonation make it very easy to distinguish between the different characters in the story, bringing depth and colour to their lives. He's a joy to listen to.
It's been about 20 years since I first read the book, and I'd forgotten just how much fun the Belgariad fantasy was first time round. Can't wait to download the next one.
