Publisher's Summary

The infant son of Garion and Ce'Nedra had been foully kidnapped. And thus, they begin the great quest to rescue the child, with the immortal Belgarath the Sorcerer, his daughter Polgara the Sorceress, and,inevitably, the little Drasnian, Silk. Guided by the Orb of the god Aldur, their way leads through the foul swamps of Nyissa, then into the lands of the Murgos, where they must face a horrible danger to not only themselves, but to all of mankind. For the Dark Prophesy had not vanished when Garion slew the evil god Torak. Instead, it had fled to Zandramas, who planned to use the child in a rite that would insure that Dark would triumph over Light. Thus continues the epic quest, across new lands and among strange peoples.

    "Please, don't say "horror" anymore..."

    The story is every bit as good as I remember it. The narrator has difficulty with pronunciation of many words, such as "horror", which has says as "hawrawuhr" I find myself making fun of it aloud whenever he says that word. Funny, he has no trouble with the word "terror". The performance is inconsistent, though the accents do tend to follow the basic patterns set by Eddings as the analogues for the different races. All Sendarians tend to speak with exactly the same English accent, and the narrator's interpretation of Belgarath is a complete rip-off of Gandalf from the movie version of Lord Of The Rings. No matter how old Garion gets, he still talks like he did when he was a little boy.

    I am still glad that this series came out in audio...it was always one of my favorites.

    "King of the Murgod"

    Eddings tells his LOTR type tale with humor and is still able to maintain a feeling of veracity and suspense in the tale.

    "The next best thing to reading it yourself."
    Would you listen to King of the Murgos again? Why?

    Yes. It's a lot of fun. Beierle puts a lot of life into his voices and seems to catch most of the charm and humor that comes across in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Beierle had his faults--he gets a little carried away with his accents (and I think he misses the mark significantly on a few), but his narrations are the best so far.

    However, I seriously wish the narrators would put in the time to get the name pronunciations right. I really don't understand how they can mangle some of them so badly. Here's something "straight from the horse's mouth" I found after a 15 second Google search.

    "Nice reading"

    The book is well read in my opinion as well as the story. The King of Murgos himself is a hoot. The book moved well compared to the first one and had some good plot points. The King of Murgos himself is probably my favorite character. I felt the narrator did a good job. I would recommend this book.

    "My favourite stories butchered."

    I love this series. With all my heart. I've read the books more times than I can count and loved each and every read.

    I was delighted to find them on Audible. Aaannnndddd then I started listening.

    The narrator obviously pronounces the names differently to me and that's fine.

    BUT!!!
    For pity's sake!! Quay is pronounced key!! And there past tense of light is lit not lighted!!! Every time I hear his pronunciation gaffs it makes me cringe.

    His timing and pacing is often off too. He breaks sentences in such a way as to change their meaning or make their meaning less clear

    I'd pay for these books again JUST to have them read by someone else.

    I rarely take the time to write full reviews but I can't keep my peace any longer.

    "King Of The Murgos by David Eddings"

    now Garion and his friends set out on their quest to rescue the infant prince Garan who has been kidnapped. Surprises are encounted and unexpected revilations as they pass through Niessa and go on to the country of the Murgos. They must destroy more evil and rid the world of a foul priestess, who is in league with the dark prophecy which wants to claim the world. Gripping as ever, the Malorean is a series that you couldn't put down.
