A re-telling of his belgariad series but from a different viewpoint. I enjoyed this but preferred the full series. ( )

OK, let's be clear about this, BtS is a fairly blatant attempt to milk the Belgariad Universe for as much as the market can take. It does also give David to share the limelight with his wife, Leigh. And to be fair, there isn't anything bad about the story itself though if you have followed the earlier books, the barebones outlines will be familiar to you, this book will more than flesh them out.

I gotta say, I like David Eddings voice. The character of Belgarath the Sorcerer. Is very well done. Inconsistency is always an option for him.

This is my thought about fantasy in general; To a certain degree,An author is painting a picture of a reality, that makes sense to him or her.

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. ( )

Belgarath the Sorcerer is another one of those Del Rey series-padding specials - there were a whole bunch of these in the early 90s, where authors rewrote their successful work from the point of view of another character. I adored the Garion books, and I was quite fond of this one, but its charm has worn off - even more than the original series.

Part of the problem is that Eddings's worldbuilding is just sloppy. He doesn't seem to care all that much for consistency, and alters things in later books with no apparent regard for the earlier ones. Belgarath is a particularly dense example of this, and the result is that the reader either has to either take it as canon and assume the narration of the original series is unreliable, or throw it out as barely-true blather. Neither make it an asset to the series.

The other part of the problem is that when the writing isn't a tedious rehash of expostion from the first ten books, it's gimmicky fourth-wall-breaking stunt writing. And that's charming for about a minute, and then you realize that the narrator is really kind of a self-satisfied asshole. There are some parts - the first few sections in particular - that really are new material and hold up reasonably well, but once we get to the oft-retold recovery of the Orb, it's downhill from there.

A disappointing revisit to a book I remembered liking, certainly. ( )
