    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.

    Seth H. Wilson says: "Great book; dreadful narration"

    I can't tell you how much I loved David Eddings and his writings. What J.P. Linton has done to his work is nothing short of a crime! He is awful! The narration sounds like a cross between a 40 hour lecture by the most horrible professor you've ever had, and an arrogant, insincere preacher. For those of you who may have made the mistake of downloading this travesty, don't let it get you down on David Eddings. He's an amazing writer, and the Belgariad and Mallorean on audible are worth the downloads.

    They didn't mean it. They didn't mean to hit the boy. There was a party, and it was an accident... that wasn't who they were. They were pre-law, a football player, bound for New York. No one could know, so Barry, Julie, Helen, and Ray swore one another to secrecy. But now, a year later, someone knows. Julie receives a haunting, anonymous threat: "I know what you did last summer." The dark lie is unearthed, and before the four friends know it they need to outsmart a killer... or they will be the next to die.

    Jane says: "A Quick But Engrossing Listen"

    Downloaded this for a light beach listen. Horrible. Awful. Rotten. Stupid. I can go on. Nothing like the movie, other than the names. No one even dies.....though my ears bled.

    Four decades after it first shook the nation, then the world, William Peter Blatty's thrilling masterwork of faith and demonic possession returns in an even more powerful form. Raw and profane, shocking and blood-chilling, it remains a modern parable of good and evil and perhaps the most terrifying novel ever written.

    Overall, I thought this was a great download. I tried to read the original, and thought it was a little slow after seeing the movie and being terrified. This audio version solved that. William Peter Blatty does a fantastic job! I agree with the other reviewer that his voice is made for narration. I too am leery of any author who reads their own work, but I can't imagine a better narrator.

    I was a little confused with the addition of the little girl voice three-quarters of the way through the book. It was disconcerting to hear after we have been hearing Blatty's voice for so long, but it really didn't make much sense to me since Blatty also does Regan's voice before the possession so suddenly hearing her as a little girl seemed unnecessary.

    Overall, a creepy, great autumn listen!
