Lists with This Book. Mar 10, Tbe Jago rated it really liked it. I’m going to talk about all five books because I have just read them head-to-head so to speak. First thing to say is I’m a fan of Wddings, and I don’t subscribe to the view that there is anything at all wrong with writing stuff that is entertaining.
So if you are expecting me to go off on one about how this would be better if it was darker, or how it adds nothing to the sum of human knowledge you are about to be very disappointed.
This is over all an entertaining quintet and I am fond of it Right. This is over eseress an entertaining quintet and I am fond of its essential innocence. I also like the way it rolls along at a brisk clip-after a bit of a slow start in volume one. You know good will triumph in the end, and that’s what you want if you opt to read so-caked soft fantasy. I am also enamoured of Eddings as a writer.
He’s good, and immerses you in his world without suffocating you. What I don’t like is Polgara, who gets right up my nose -too much uber mother and superiority.
The Malloreon – Wikipedia
I also find myself wishing that Garion was less nice. But that could be just me.
All in all I’d recommend this as a warming winter read to be taken in front of a roaring fire with a dog on your feet. I still prefer the Sparhawk books, but I’ll always go back and give The Belgariad and The Malloreon a read every now and again. You know you want to Apr 16, Simon rated it did not like it Shelves: By the time I got to the end of this series, I realised David Eddings wasn’t for me anymore. Getting to the end of this series always makes me feel a bit pensive.
Of course, since there are 11 books total eddlngs the Belgariad and the Mallorean, I see another re-read in my near future.
I love how Garion keeps asking ‘Zakath “are you sure you’re not an Arend? During the previous series Garion only had Ce’Nedra as a real friend and all the others were much, much older than he and always in a position of authority over him.
Another one of my favorite parts is everything Dal Pevior sp? I adored basically every moment of that. My only issue with the wolves is that Eddings once again directly contradicts himself! Supposedly it impossible for wolves to lie because you cannot lie in thought.
The wolf was shocked when she learned the man-things can tell untruths. Ok, so this is a rule. Not possible to lie. So why does Eddings show the female wolf lying quite often?! How is this possible? In Sorceress of Darshiva Belgarion asks “Where is your mate? I visit his bone sometimes. He still runs and hunts – he is also alive so she can’t ‘visit his bones. I see now why she can’t hunt. Is she fully grown? I have had as many as six.
You should have chosen a larger mate. I’m sure she was the runt of her litter. Vella is described as heartbreakingly lovely and extremely feisty.
She typically dresses in tight leather pants with a tight leather vest and her multiple daggers on display.
Occasionally Vella dresses in thin almost translucent Malloreon dress in order to dance almost all Seeresss women dress this way to dance — and all the dances are for the entertainment of [large] groups of men.
Vella had never really liked him and she customarily loosened her daggers in their sheaths whenever she came into his presence, making very sure that he saw her doing so to be certain that there would be no misunderstandings. Technically, of course, Vella was one of Yarblek’s possessions, and Zelmit had a reputation for making rather free with the things that belong to his employer. P Omnibus Edition Since the age of 12, she had teh relied on her daggers to ward off any unwanted attention.
Although she had seldom been obliged to kill anyone — except for a few enthusiasts — she had nonetheless established a reputation for being a girl no sensible man would attempt. Sometimes that rankled a bit, though, since there were times when Vella might have welcomed an attempt.
A nick or two in some unimportant places upon an ardent admirer would sustain her honor, and then — well, who knows? As I mentioned in a previous reviewthere appears to be some sort of parallel between promiscuity, nudity and being a woman antagonist. Thou couldst father a race of gods upon me, Belgarion, and we could sate each other with unearthly delights.
Thou wilt find me fair, King of Riva, as all men have, and I will consume thy days with the passion of the gods, and we od share in the meeting of Light and Dark.
In this situation, after Zandramas is defeated, she is stripped naked in sesress of her enemies. I felt that was overkill, to be honest. Are we just rubbing salt in the wound? Zandramas shrank back even more. I would see thee receive thy reward and thine exaltation.
Zandramas made no attempt to conceal her nakedness, for indeed, there was no nakedness. Mar 26, Andrew Leon rated it really liked it. It’s great to re-visit the characters from The Belgariad and see them in action again; unfortunately, that’s the best thing that can be said about the series. It’s not that it’s bad; it’s a completely enjoyable read. However, Eddings fails to move forward with his writing and, instead, gives us what is essentially the same plot from The Belgariad over again.
If you’ve read The Belgariad and esdings it, you should certainly read The Mallorean, as well. If you’re hoping for something new, though, mo It’s great to re-visit the characters from The Belgariad and see them in action again; unfortunately, that’s the best thing that can be said about the series. If you’re hoping for something new, though, move on to some other author.
Seeress Of Kell
Eddings continues to re-hash the plot from The Belgariad throughout most of the rest of his writing career. The problem is that he never does it better than he did in The Belgariad, so there’s no reason to read anything else. Oct 28, Kristalia rated it it was amazing Shelves: I knew there was a sequel series, but i didn’t rush to buy it until all copies were almost sold, then i went into panic and bought the sequel as well.
Reading the sequel series, The Malloreon, was unique experience. The books were much longer, with more interesting story, and it was interes Final rating: The books were much longer, with more interesting story, and it was interesting and funny read.
Sad in some moments, but also very very funny. I don’t remember i laughed that much anytime recently.
I liked them too, but i didn’t love them as much as i love the sequel. In any case, this series is worth reading.
