So of the two prequel books, I definitely prefer the one from Polgara's viewpoint over Belgarath's. It may be because of the women's perspective thing, I don't know. That said, the usual standard rules concerning reading any Eddings work applies, perhaps even moreso because this book admittedly is just a retread of events that have already been written about, just from another character's POV. So don't read it for the plot, but for the dialogue.

Having gone through a recent re-read of Eddings' books in this particular universe, I find them to be both more enjoyable on an older adult level, while at the same time raising an eyebrow at certain repetitive phrases and the very obvious opinions that Eddings and his wife seem to have about gender roles and female archetypes.
