Disappointing

I love David Eddings - "The Belgariad" series are among the most loved books of my vast collection, and so I purchased this book with frank expectation of a good read.

It starts out well - our hero is well drawn and we are interested in his experiences. The other characters are introduced and we become interested in them as well. But somehow it just runs out of steam from there, and by the end I was simply pleased to be finished (I confess I did finish because I am one of those people who perservere unless a book is truly atrocious).

Overall I was very disappointed. It is evident that Edding's still has the gift as the characters are well cast and interesting, but the battles are too long, and by the end I didn't care what happened to any of them.

Stick to his earlier, far superior works.
