4.0 von 5 Sternen Not the top, but good
I found this series very good. Not as good, perhaps, as a few other fantasy series I've read, but good nonetheless. David Eddings is a refreshing writer who does not fill up his books with swears and unnecessary sexual and nude scenes like so many other fantasy writers do these days. His books are very funny at times, and some of his characters are really...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Amusing, but not very good
Eddings certainly knows how to write an amusing, readable story. He has a fairly good sense of humor, the ability to keep numerous plot threads going without seeming confusing, and characters who are fairly likable.
The flaws in his work are more basic. The series suffers from a bad case of "Star Trek Worldbuilding": each country has a single personality...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Amusing, but not very good, 3. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
Eddings certainly knows how to write an amusing, readable story. He has a fairly good sense of humor, the ability to keep numerous plot threads going without seeming confusing, and characters who are fairly likable.
The flaws in his work are more basic. The series suffers from a bad case of "Star Trek Worldbuilding": each country has a single personality. All the Tolnedrans are crazy about money. All the Sendarans are practical. All the Arends are brave and stupid. All the Mimbrates are romantic. With a few exceptions, there is almost no good worldbuilding.
The characters, also, are not very good. They seem to have no idea that they are inhabiting a Heroic Fantasy novel. Come on, now: how many of you REALLY think that a ten thousand year old Noble Sorceror would find much attraction in getting drunk?
Overall, Edding's stuff is sort of like the old epic "cast of thousands" movies which are fun to watch even if they're not very good simply because they've got huge casts and fancy costumes and lavish scenery. Castle of Wizardry is good for speed-reading on a hot summer day. But don't look to it for depth.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
I found this series very good. Not as good, perhaps, as a few other fantasy series I've read, but good nonetheless. David Eddings is a refreshing writer who does not fill up his books with swears and unnecessary sexual and nude scenes like so many other fantasy writers do these days. His books are very funny at times, and some of his characters are really well-developed. Others aren't quite so good, but it doesn't matter so much if you are just reading for entertainment. Like another reviewer said, I wouldn't read these books if you were looking for something deep and very well thought out and put together. But for a more relaxing time, I suggest these books, especially if you don't want any of the junk that they tend to put in books these days.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The story great! The characters lovably! Never dull!, 15. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
I enjoyed this book, this series, and has become one of my favourites. It is is light or heavy read depending on how much you want to get out of it. His characters have believable personalities, especially the ones who have lived thousands of years. Belgarath and Beldin have enough sceptisism and hope in their characters to make them truely lovable. The story itself is full of twist that kept me coming back. The only disapointment was Errand/Eriond, I guessed his fate before the end, but still wasn't to big of a disapointment, it finished so well. Eddings will be hard pressed to dupicate the sucess of this series. I hope he writes more with these characters. Did I detect a bit of sarcasism ? Mr. Eddings Thank you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Eddings really captures the essence of the characters, 16. April 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
The entire Belgariad series was excellent as was its sequel, The Mallorean, and its pre/sequel, Belgarath the Sorccerer. Eddings paints stunning mental images of the characters, giving them their own personal idioms and idiosynchracies, as well as letting them evolve, change, and adapt. His ability to write such long epics is elite. You are quickly enthralled in the stories, and just when you think the plot could end in Book 3, here comes Book 4 with a new unexpected twist. As was the case with Castle of Wizardry. It was another shining example of fantasy literature that can stand on its own, but will leave you needing to read the rest of the series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Science fiction will never be the same. EXCELLENT!, 6. November 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
Eddings throws you, yet again, in a fantasy world where the characters will become as well known to you as life-like friends and the mystical aspects of this book don't seem cartoonish or petty. The beauty of Eddings works is they're all taken from a realistic start without any fantasy and incorporates it slowly and very believably as well. This book, as well as his other Malloreon series (which is a continuance of the Belgariad) MUST be read. Eddings is the only sci-fi type reader I will spend time with.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mum, I finally got around to it!, 12. Juni 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
After many years of nagging from my mother to read Eddings, I finally got around to it. And do I regret not reading him earlier, YOU BET!!! I picked up the first one, and three months later, I'd finished the whole lot. Including "Belgarath" and "Polgara". Now they take pride of place, and nobody borrows them, for fear of never getting them back! If I was stranded on a desert island and could take only ten books with me, it would be a closed contest, pack your bags "old wolf".

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Malloreon, 26. September 2002

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
About 2 Years ago I picked up a book called "Pawn of Prophecy". 2 weeks later I owned the whole "Belgariad" as well as the "Malloreon".
It's the best book I ever read and I just love it's character, who are so real.David Eddings created a fantastic world and tells the story so vividly, you can't help but read day and night. I also introduced it to my younger sister, who didn't stopp reading until she finish all of them - and she never liked reading befor.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nothing new here, 4. Januar 1999
Eddings starts to go downhill with this 4th volume of the Belgariad, primarily because the more the story expands, the more problems creep up. Always conventional, although fun, Eddings should've been able to keep material this simplistic from having so many logical gaps. Still, lots of clever dialogue (sometimes this is all that Eddings has going for him) and more adventures with his well-loved characters make Castle of Wizardry a good (if brain-dead) read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Elite few..., 21. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
Not the first book,but certainly one of the best,Eddings has acheived the status : Elite. I read this book during my lunch breaks, ( I was always late returning to work). It was delightful to have a dining room full of people look my way when i could no longer hold back my mirth at some witty comment made by one of the char's, and burst out laughing....Extremely delightful!! Thank you David for putting some humor back into life!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Way Cool, 30. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Castle of Wizardry (The Belgariad) (Taschenbuch)
This book has so many wonderfully funny parts - Ce'nedra jumping up "OH, NO!", Relg's and Taiba's "little theological discussions", "This isn't going to work, Rhodar," Anheg turned to the rotund monarch in disgust, "What are we going to call her? The Overlady of the West?", and so on. I memorized what is given of Ce'Nedra's first speech. I love these books! Breathe deep, seek peace. Tin
