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.

    "Great story"

    Loved all the books associated with this. A book about Silk and his adventures would be awesome.

    "Great conclusion"

    Fantastic ending to the series. Yes there's some issues in the pronunciation of a few words but on the whole it aligns with the books. At least she can pronounce Ce'Nedra correctly. Unlike the terrible narrator of "Belgarth," she acts well and is a masterful Polgara. This might be my favorite reading of any of the audiobooks.

    "Terrible performer for a great story."

    Not much to say aside from this being the worst voice performance this side of Fran Dresser.

    "What a shame"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book is for me, I have it in hardback and have enjoyed it several times.


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

    I have read the entire series several times and there are way too many memorable moments to be limited to just one. With Polgara it is attitude and insight that create the memorable moments.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I have read the series and enjoyed it several times. I have also listened to the rest of the series narrated by Cameron Beierle three times and loved every minute. I cannot for the life of me imagine how this narrator was selected or how anyone familiar with the rest of the audiobook series allowed this to be published. This narrator has obviously never listened to the rest of the series, because she has no feeling for the depth and character of Polgaras personality and bearing when dealing with others, or even day to day situations. Further, she didn't bother to learn the accepted pronunciations of names and places common to the series. I have tried twice now to listen to this book and I can't make it to the end of the first chapter before I am thoroughly annoyed and disgusted. I am going to make the time to go back and read the book for myself because it really is a delightful story and Polgara is a literary treasure.


    What character would you cut from Polgara the Sorceress?

    Only the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    If Cameron would do the book, I will buy it in a heart beat.

    "I love David Eddings!"

    One of my favorite authors. Definitely in my top five books! The Belgariad Mallorean and Belgarath the Sorcerer are amazing!

    "Best fantasy series!"

    I have been reading it since 1989. With twelve books in the series David and Leigh were really able to develop the characters. The audio series is a whole new way to experience them too.

    "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.

    "Perfect starter"

    This was the first book I read. It was a wonderful introduction to the series because it is an overview of the begining. Highly recomended
