Read in August, 2012

I've read the Belgariad series a few times, and finally just started the Malloreon. I like seeing all the familiar characters, and that they're off on another quest again. However, I've seen some reviews about how this series ends up being remarkably similar to the Belgariad, and I already get that sense from the first book, so it will be interesting to see if the series can hold my interest. I'm also starting to get a little annoyed at how every woman is considered in need of protection (including Polgara!), and not supposed to be on the frontlines anywhere, and that Ce'Nedra goes all hysterical, even after the events in the Belgariad where she showed she could hold her own and make big contributions. Eddings has powerful women in his books (especially Polgara and Porenn), but somehow it still seems like they're given short shrift.
