If you love David Eddings, and enjoyed the Belgariad and Mallorean series of books, then this is essential. I have this in paperback so it was a no brainer to get this on Kindle. Would recommend this to any lover of science fantasy. This is Belgarath's story from his beginnings as a boy thief, through his apprenticeship with the God Aldur to reach the status of sorcerer and right up to the birth of Garion (The Belgariad and The Mallorean series). Eddings is very good at developing likeable real characters and allowing them to have believable character flaws.

Includes both series of books and the two prequel books. Belgariad has long been one of the top epic fantasy series, often shelved right next to the Lord of the Rings or the Wheel of Time. It consists of two prequels, five main books, and five books in a sequel series.

The story of Belgarath, the great sorcerer learned in the Will and the Word on whom the fate of the world depends. This is his own account of the struggle that went before "The Belgariad" and "The Malloreon". Only one man could tell of those near-forgotten times. That man is known as the Old Wolf.

This 12 volume set was the first adult fantasy set I ever picked up and I have lost count of how many times I have read it. I was ecstatic when David Eddings wrote "Belgarath" and then "Polgara". Getting the beginning stories, and then being able to better understand some of what happens in the original two sets, is a wonderful way of rounding out the stories. But know that you have to read the original stories first or you won't understand a lot of little comments made and it will make things very confusing when you do read the main sets. I highly recommend you get started on "Pawn of Prophecy"'and dive your way into a wonderful, complete world that has it all, running away in the night, sorcery, treachery, small fights, wars, family love and squabbles and even its own romance as well as Epic battles of Good vs Evil! I really think you will be glad you did!

Fun read and provides interesting background to the first 10 books in the series (The Belgariad & The Mallorean).

No gratuitous profanity, explicit sex, or excessive violence - for those like me who think they should only be included if they advance the story in a significant way, this is a welcome relief from so much of the SF and Fantasy out there!

If you enjoyed The Belgariad & The Malloreon, you will enjoy this book as well. (You'll also enjoy the final book - Polgara the Sorceress.)

I was halfway through reading my hard-cover version of Belgarath the Sorcerer when we decided to go camping. instead of packing a large heavy book I decided to download the story from Amazon to my kindle - brilliant decision!! the e-version compares well to the printed version.

you really need to have read the Belgarion and the Mallorean series for this book to really make sense, as it fills in a lot of the background happenings and history that is only briefly touched on in the series. like the rest of the books in the series, the characters have a real depth to them, reminding me of people i know, so each time i read the books i almost feel as if i'm visiting friends and family.

every winter for the past 16 years i curl up in my chair with a blanket, a cup of tea and these wonderful stories and spend the time laughing and crying, trying to read quickly through the scary bits and lingering over the parts that are sweet, warm and and full of love.

I have read the complete Belgariad and Maloreon series about 17 times. Every time I feel like a holiday I grab it. This is fantasy and humor competing with the best (I read Lord of the Rings only 7 times).
The characters are well developed and true to the various nations of which they are members. They sometimes make you cry but often you laygh out loud for the dry humor they display. When I first picked up Pawn of Prophesy I could not put it down and went right through the series of 12 books.
Although Belgarath the Sorcerer is the 2nd last book of the series it actually gives you the pre-history of the whole story, but it should not be read first. The Follow up book" Polgara the sorceress which is the last one in the series actually ends where the series begins.
Fact is when you have finished Polgara you feel a great loss. Maybe someday somebody will attempt to make a film series out of this, but that will be a major challenge.
David and Leigh Eddings created an outstanding story

If you are one of the many fans of "The Belgariad" and "The Malloreon", here is another treat for you. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading those wonderful epic fantasy series, make yourself a favour and read them before tackling "Belgarath the sorcerer". You can thank me later for introducing you to a wonderful new imaginary world and to likeable characters :)

"Belgarath the sorcerer" starts just where "The Malloreon" ended, that is the book "Seeress of Kell". And, strangely enough, it is nothing less than Belgarath's autobiography. As those who have read the series already know, Belgarath is a notoriously lazy sorcerer, probably the least likely person to feel the need to write his story. Unless someone compels him to do so, of course. But to know who or what could do that to an all-powerful sorcerer, you must read this book.

What is in it for you?. Well, lots of fun, and the opportunity to know how things really started, from the point of view of one of the main characters in the series. You get to accompany Belgarath from his birth in the small village of Gara, to the fateful day when he met Aldur and became first his pupil and then his disciple. In case you are as curious as me, you will also be grateful to know that this book will allow you to learn more about Belgarath's family, and to live wondrous adventures with him and his friends.

Personally, I found the opportunity of "living" the things I had merely read about in the previous books specially rewarding. The fact that Belgarath's memories span thousands of years gives the reader the opportunity of gaining a good perspective on all the things that happened, thus preparing him to read the previous books in the series in a different way. A warning is in order, though. If you haven't read the previously mentioned books, this book has big-time spoilers, so please don't risk ruining the surprises those series have for you. Do first things first, and read "The Belgariad" and "The Malloreon" before "Belgarath the sorcerer".

All in all, I loved reading this book, and I highly recommend it to those who aren't ready to leave the world of Belgarath and his friends. Enjoy it!

This is one of my favorites from David Eddings. It takes a nice behind-the-scenes look at the events leading up to the Belgariad series including the history of the land and how its characters, cultures and traditions came into being. It includes all of the usual dry, witty humor characteristic of Eddings' books. Since it is written in the first person, we get a glimpse into who Belgarath really is and how he thinks about life. It is entertaining and funny. It is a "must read" if you are a fan of the Belgariad or Mallorean series.
