Biografia breu
David Carroll Eddings (July 7, 1931 – June 2, 2009 was an American fantasy writer. With his wife Leigh, he authored several best-selling epic fantasy novel series, including The Belgariad (1982–84), The Malloreon (1987–91), The Elenium (1989–91), The Tamuli (1992–94), and The Dreamers (2003–06).

Part Cherokee and born in Spokane, Washington, to George Wayne Eddings and Theone (Berge) Eddings, in 1931, Eddings grew up near Puget Sound in the City of Snohomish. After graduating from Snohomish High School in 1949, he worked for a year before majoring in speech, drama and English at junior college. Eddings displayed an early talent for drama and literature, winning a national oratorical contest, and performing the male lead in most of his drama productions. He graduated with a BA from Reed College in 1954. He wrote a novel for a thesis at Reed College before being drafted into the U.S. Army. (He had also previously served in the National Guard.) After being discharged in 1956, Eddings attended the graduate school of the University of Washington in Seattle for four years, graduating with an MA in 1961. Eddings then worked as a purchaser for Boeing, where he met his future wife. Through most of the 1960s, Eddings worked as a lecturer at Black Hills State College in South Dakota.

The Belgariad, #1-5:
non capisco perchè negli anni 80 andavano di moda i protagonisti tanto ottusi, moralisti e idioti da essere odiosi! pur non raggiungendo l'apice assoluto de "la ruota del tempo" anche qui i personaggi sono ficcati a forza in clichè mediocri; alla fine l'unico di cui mi interessava era Silk

The Belgariad, #5
mancanza di ritmo in crescendo, mancanza di un vero scontro finale, zero pathos
LLonaVahine | Hi ha 65 ressenyes més | May 22, 2024 |
Dei, una compagnia di maghi e eredi, una cerca di manufatti magici rubati

This was better than the first book.
More of a purpose to everything and positive progress towards it.
Still not good enough for a 5 star rating.
Hopefully it finishes off strongly in the 3rd book, and the Tamuli continues strongly.

Easy reading, enjoyable enough, but they are dragging on.
The repetitious comments to each other "Be nice", etc are still annoying.
As is the way that powerful women also need to be ridiculously "girly" at times. And the Gods...
Several things were very predictable, including the reveal of the main villain - and the way of dealing with the trolls.
Made it this far, one book to go.
