Monique Rockliffe (SwordBearer) | 1 comments I was a teenager when I read The Belgariad and Eddings quickly became one of my favourite fantasy writers. As you can all imagine, no doubt, as a teenager one is a little less cynical and almost nothing is impossible, so it was easy to lose myself in the brilliance of his imagination and seeing myself as part of the story! It's what turned me into a fantasy writer! One of my favourites is still 'The Redemption of Althalus'. The Redemption of Althalus by David Eddings

Crystiannia | 3 comments I'm with you, Alyssa. When I was very little I used to like writing my own stories. After I read through my first batch of Eddings books it made me think, "I want to create worlds like this and people to live in them." And it made writing become much more of a hobby for me and more of a necessity. I'm not sure if it would have become a part of me if I'd never happened across his books.

I actually am a teenager so still living the Eddings dream. Read all his books *except Polgara & Belgarath* & I loved them all! His books got me into reading & I can't stop thanking him for that.

Katelynn | 3 comments I read his books and want to go write so bad, but I can't write after I've read a book because I accidentally mimic their style, makes me so mad because I always get inspired but when I write its going to be 100$ percent me, but he is inspiring, He is from the same area I am
