it was amazing
Read in January, 1985

The Belgariad is, possibly, the best fantasy series ever written after The Lord of the Rings. It's totally formulaic, although that was sort of the point. However, it was written while the formula was still being established, so, when I read this series the first time (more than 20 years ago), it was fresh and new. I don't often re-read (because, really, there's always something waiting that I haven't read at all, so why read something I've already read?), but I have returned to this series twice. And my kids have loved the series as well, so, evidently, it has staying power. It's the characters that do it. They are hard not to fall in love with.
