Since I read all the Belgariad, and the library is unjustly accusing me of having a book I've never seen, I thought I would just read all the rest of the David Eddings in a huge binge. David tried to do the same thing but got too irritated at the details to continue. These are good books, the characters are very enjoyable. Reading these books is like hanging out with friends that have a few quirks, but you love them so you ignore the obnoxious laugh or hogging all the pizza.
The last two books are interesting, I don't know of any other author that has gone back to a series and retold it, from a different character's perspective. Eddings does it twice. I enjoy these last two books, even though I know the story, because of the changes that happen because of a different character's viewpoint. Since you know and love the characters, the changes are enjoyable too. But I must admit, I skimmed some places towards the end. Too much Eddings gets boring after a while.
