The Belgariad

I'm currently reading a series of books called The Belgariad by author David Eddings. This is probably the fourth time reading this set since my childhood years, the only difference is that I'm now reading it as an ebook of my cellular phone.

It's quite an interesting fantasy novel set in the ages of sorcerers, knights and vikings. There's suspense, drama and action. And Eddings adds a bit of intelligent humour in it as well.

The story is about the life of a young boy, who goes by the name of Garion, and how his simple life gets turned up side down and great responsibility is placed on his shoulders. Garion is teamed up with a very diverse group of people from all over Aloria, who possess unique skills which are used throughout their journey.

The Belgariad has been around since 1982, so it shouldn't be new to scifi fantasy fans. If you've read it once you will definitely want to read it again. Eddings has the magical ability of his own of taking you away from reality and sub merging you into the world of The Belgariad. A guaranteed page turner.
