    It would be sheer folly to try to conceal the true nature of Althalus, for his flaws are the stuff of legend. He is, as all men know, a thief, a liar, an occasional murderer, an outrageous braggart, and a man devoid of even the slightest hint of honor. Yet of all the men in the world, it is Althalus, unrepentant rogue and scoundrel, who will become the champion of humanity in its desperate struggle against the forces of an ancient god determined to return the universe to nothingness.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Redemption of Althalus?

    There seems to be no real problems for the heroes of the story. They just go along, and everything is either provided, or just works out fine. Nobody causes them any real trouble and anything they need they just get. It's all too easy and becomes boring. I unfortunately got so bored that I stopped partway through the book. Maybe it became more interesting later?


    What could David Eddings and Leigh Eddings have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I've really enjoyed other Eddings' novels - I read through the Belgariad and the Ruby Knight series, and what I really enjoyed was how there was difficulty and then how that difficulty was overcome.
    Give Althalus some problems. At least make him hunt food and cook it, or go hungy instead of just saying, "beef" and having cooked beef appear.


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

    I enjoyed the vocal variety for the different charactars.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Redemption of Althalus?

    I didn't actually get all the way through.
