Publisher's Summary

Best-selling authors David and Leigh Eddings welcome fans 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.

    "Great read"

    Read the Belgariad and the Mallorean first! Read Polgara after. Fills in the gaps of the others great book, only struggle I had was going to bed at night and not wanting oh just 1 more chapter.

    "Cameron Beierle the Best Narrator"
    Any additional comments?

    I read this book when it was first released. I love all of Eddings books of the 2 series this book relates to. Back in 2013 I bought this audio when it had a different narrator. It was ok, did not like some of his pronunciations but put up with it anyway. I just found out that this audiobook has been re-released with Cameron Beierle narrating and I HAD to buy it!! He is the best.

    "Beierle is best"

    I'm very glad that he got to do Belgarath. I enjoyed the previous eddings narrations he did and was pleasantly surprised to find this book had come out and that he kept to the same voices nearly a decade later. I wonder if he's going to be doing Polgara at all...

    Story
    "Great trip down memory lane."

    A solid tale that fills in some of the details of Belgareth's backstory prior to the Belgariad and the Malorian, as told by him after those two series. So read those two first if you haven't. It hits all the things that were told in passing during the main story and expands upon them.

    But... that is the vast majority of what this book is. Nostalgia. You don't meet many new characters of much lasting importance, so it becomes a parade of past remembered places and events where they're with you briefly then move on. A lot of time passes, but there isn't a strong sense of progression or conflict. Which is furthered by the fact that you know the outcomes.

    If you are a fan of the main story, this is worth the credit, with the proper expectations going in.

    "Masterful rendition."

    If you have listened to the rest of these books then this is the version of Balgarath to listen to Cameron does a masterful job on this using the same accents as the other book and great care is taken with pronunciation and he even referred to David Eddings notes to get it right.
    I hope books in motion redo Polgara which is hard to listen too.
    With this version it is like listening to an old friend tell his favourite tall tale. This version is simply wonderful.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Belgarath the Sorcerer to be better than the print version?

    This audio book is possibly better than the print version. Narration is spectacular.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Belgarath the Sorcerer?

    There were many memorable moments.


    Have you listened to any of Cameron Beierle’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to Cameron Beierle's other performances, but I am going to buy the audio book versions of the Belgariad series (even though I have the printed books) just to enjoy his narration. This is because I enjoyed Belgarath so much that I am listening to it for a second time...that's 32 hours each time!


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

    yes. I used every opportunity to listen to this book...even during my outdoor running, instead of a playlist.


    Any additional comments?

    The storyline was very entertaining. I have read many comments about Eddings not being the most complex fantasy writer. I'm sure that's true. He is however very good IMO in building the characters in his books. I also note that Eddings seems to have similar characters in his different series however that didn't really bug me. Overall, when I read Eddings works, I feel relaxed and am generally looking forward to picking up again where I left off. Belgarath is one of my favourites!

    "Lore Galore"

    Great lore addition! Fills in the history perfectly!
    Recommended to read after main series though, it contains spoilers to The Belgariad.

    "Great Story. Perfect voice for the Performance."
    What did you like best about this story?

    The performance was amazing. The perfect voice for an old grizzled sorcerer. The story is very good and made great by the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    This book plays perfectly in the Android app. It is not usable in the Windows PC app, can't understand anything. I've downloaded it 3 times on PC and it's the same every time.

    "Like hanging out with old friends."

    Not a lot of story here. More like sitting around with old friends, telling tells and finding out things you never knew about them. Fans of the series will appreciate it. The narrator is great. Hopefully they will arrange for him to narrate the last book.

    I've read all the books in this series many, many years ago. Listening to the story after so many years was really enjoyable. The narrator was wonderful and even though it's pretty long, it didn't feel that long.
