Publisher's Summary

Best-selling authors David and Leigh Eddings welcome readers back to the time before The Belgariad and The Malloreon series. Join them as they chronicle that fateful conflict between two mortally opposed Destinies, in a monumental war of men and kings and Gods.

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.

Then came the dark day when the Dark God Torak split the world asunder, and the God Aldur and his disciples began their monumental labor to set Destiny aright. Foremost among their number was Belgarath. His ceaseless devotion was foredoomed to cost him that which he held most dear - even as his loyal service would extend through echoing centuries of loss, of struggle, and of ultimate triumph.

Fantasy fan? Listen to titles in the Malloreon series, which is a sequel to David Eddings' Belgariad series.

    "Another horrible narration"

    As with Belgarath the Sorcerer, this book's narration was an abomination. My absolute favorite set of books, and listening to Cameron read the Belgariad and the Mallorean, I was absolutely astounded at the poor choice of narrators for these later two books. Once you got past Cameron's introduction (he has a funny way of saying spokane washington) he did great. These later two were awful.

    "Polgera is unforgettable"

    This is one of those stories that shouldn't be read without first reading David Eddings other books. I love Polgera and all the other characters from the Belgariad. I am glad to finally learn more about her she was such a mystery that needed solving. David and Leigh are a great team. Dina Pearlman is a perfect pick for the voice of Polgera.

    "Slightly dissapointed"
    Would you try another book from David Eddings and Leigh Eddings and/or Dina Pearlman?

    possibly


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    familiar characters


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I had recently listened to "Belgarath the Sorcerer" really enjoyed it. My problem is, Dina Pearlmen's pronunciation on place and character names was so far off from the other book that it took me a while to realize whom or where she was speaking of. If you are going to be an audio book narator. You should have at least a passing aquaintance with the story and charactors.

    "Excellent performance of an excellent novel"
    Where does Polgara the Sorceress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's one of my favorites.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Polgara the Sorceress?

    The fall of Vo Wacune: it made my cry when I first read the book years ago, and hearing it again I still teared up. It's heartbreaking.


    What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

    Pearlman's acting is just right, it draws you in and it utilizes a consistent set of voices within an impressive range for the different characters. She can pull of a low, raspy brogue as well as a lilting soprano. The characters had diverse voices that kept it easy to follow who was speaking.


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

    I certainly never got bored. It was something like 30 hours long though, and eventually you do feel the need to do something else.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to audiobooks at work, and I've found it's important for them to be performed well for me to be able to follow when a small portion of my attention has to actually be on whatever boring task I'm doing. Pearlman's acting was superb, and I was never forced to jump back 30 seconds to figure out who was speaking or what was being said. It was very well performed.

    Probably the best of Eddings I Have yet read. The tale is well told and fills in gaps left by other of his books. I enjoyed it greatly.

    "Quite good."

    When reading Eddings' books, I find myself skipping over long descriptions to get to the next dialog. However, in audio form, the descriptions work masterfully.

    There are a few words that are not pronounced correctly and a few emphasise on the wrong part of the sentence (in my opinion), but other than that, the performance is quite good.

    "Very poor version"

    The narrator Dina Pearlman has carried out little or no research prior to narrating this book.
    The voices don't suit the characters and the pronunciations are not how they are supposed to be as detailed by the Authors.
