About The Belgariad
This is all of David Edding's great fantasy works. The Belgariad stands out as the best, as it has by far the most interesting characters, and yet they are "human" enough for us to be able to identify with them.
The plots also have lots of twists and turns, but true enough the apparently loose ends all come together at the end - a sure sign of a well crafted tale.
A classic fantasy good-vs.-evil, coming-of-age, lost-kings-returning, quest-with-companions epic. These are common themes in fantasy, but Eddings' writing is so witty, and his characters so intriguing, that it never gets old. He seems very aware he is using some well established cliches, but puts new twists on them and even makes fun of them as the story goes on
