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.

Fantastic book!

I bought this audiobook with some trepidation - Polgara the Sorceress was (and still is) one of my favourite books growing up, I was therefore slightly concerned that it would have been mangled like many of the other sci fi/fantasy type books on here.

fear not! it's brilliantly read, once you get used to the American pronounciations (and over the 'I don't pronounce Ctuchik like that!' issues) and had me totally addicted very quickly, much like the book.

Now if only the guy reading Belgarath the Sorcerer was as good...!

I recently reviewed and rated the brother book to this one as extremely poor due to the narrator, indeed I gave up on after only a short period.

However this production was excellent. I think with the possible exception of Ce'Nedra, Dina Pearlman managed to pull off the characterisations brilliantly. Carmeron Beierle still sits atop the pile for me though.

I can strongly recomend this production to all Eddings fans. The story is a crisp as ever and Dina P. does a wonderful job of bringing the story to life.
