i have nothing personally against the narrator. however, everyone in the story seems to either have a slow speach impediment or they are closely related to pepe' la' pewe. i have read all of Eddings books as far as i know. and this particular series is by far my favorite. i just was not happy with the narration. the only voice in the whole series that really seems to fit the character would be Beldin. he was done to perfection. i personnally feel as though this would be a great story to have done "dramatized" with an all star cast..
lol, feel free to contact me for voice recommendations. please do not misunderstand me, the narrator would was fine whenever he was reading the "narration", it is only the voices that ruined it for me.
I love these books and re-read them often. I decided to purchase an audio copy so that I could multi-task. The narrator however, is very disappointing. He is decent for the narration, but his accents & pronunciations are inconsistent, he mispronounces words and his vowels (git instead of get, for example) are awful. With a better narrator I would give it 5 stars.
I'm not blind drunk, I'm just blind.
As I said before I think Cameron Beirle consolidates his footing better and better with each novel. This is no exception. I noticed fewer and fewer inconsistencies with his narration, particularly in this installment.
Having regained the Orb of Aldur from Ctuchik, the now-vanquished disciple of Torak, Belgarion and his companions must escape from the crumbling city of Rak Cthol, pursued by the soldiers of the maniacal king of Cthol Murgos as well as by the sinister arts of the now-leaderless Grolim priests. Only then can they return the Orb to the Hall of the Rivan King, which Polgara reveals must be accomplished by Erastide. From there Belgarion must set out to meet a destiny beyond
Well Narrated, have read then books many times and the audio is a pleasant way to revisit when doing things or traveling. If you have e never read Eddings, start at the beginning.
amazing story, David Eddings puts you in the moment , and in the scene. you are living the story with the characters.
read this series in high school and college several times. now listening to it is even more wonderful and I enjoy every moment. the voice actor is incredible
David and Leigh Eddings were such amazing authors. They inspire me to write my own works.
"Come on, Cameron!"
I'm beginning to wonder if the voice actor on this just wasn't given enough time with the scripts. Fiddle penyang.
"I'm running out of good things to say!"
I am quite honestly running out of praise for David Eddings and his masterful storytelling.
Worth every second of your time!
enjoying the different voices, though some slightly comical , monty python like, thoroughly enjoying listening to it though
"A tale of family"
Why do I keep coming back to the Belgariad? because it has women who actually act like people. because it has emotional depth which always surprises me.
There are very few books in the genre where family is important, but this is one of them.
you can get past the narrator it's a good story and the guy does his best. worth it
still holding my attaention
