Description

The infant son of Garion and Ce'Nedra had been foully kidnapped. And thus, they begin the great quest to rescue the child, with the immortal Belgarath the Sorcerer, his daughter Polgara the Sorceress, and,inevitably, the little Drasnian, Silk. Guided by the Orb of the god Aldur, their way leads through the foul swamps of Nyissa, then into the lands of the Murgos, where they must face a horrible danger to not only themselves, but to all of mankind. For the Dark Prophesy had not vanished when Garion slew the evil god Torak. Instead, it had fled to Zandramas, who planned to use the child in a rite that would insure that Dark would triumph over Light. Thus continues the epic quest, across new lands and among strange peoples.

Please, don't say "horror" anymore...

The story is every bit as good as I remember it. The narrator has difficulty with pronunciation of many words, such as "horror", which has says as "hawrawuhr" I find myself making fun of it aloud whenever he says that word. Funny, he has no trouble with the word "terror". The performance is inconsistent, though the accents do tend to follow the basic patterns set by Eddings as the analogues for the different races. All Sendarians tend to speak with exactly the same English accent, and the narrator's interpretation of Belgarath is a complete rip-off of Gandalf from the movie version of Lord Of The Rings. No matter how old Garion gets, he still talks like he did when he was a little boy.

I am still glad that this series came out in audio...it was always one of my favorites.

King of the Murgod

Eddings tells his LOTR type tale with humor and is still able to maintain a feeling of veracity and suspense in the tale.

The next best thing to reading it yourself.

Would you listen to King of the Murgos again? Why?

Yes. It's a lot of fun. Beierle puts a lot of life into his voices and seems to catch most of the charm and humor that comes across in the book.

Any additional comments?

Beierle had his faults--he gets a little carried away with his accents (and I think he misses the mark significantly on a few), but his narrations are the best so far.

However, I seriously wish the narrators would put in the time to get the name pronunciations right. I really don't understand how they can mangle some of them so badly. Here's something "straight from the horse's mouth" I found after a 15 second Google search.

Nice reading

The book is well read in my opinion as well as the story. The King of Murgos himself is a hoot. The book moved well compared to the first one and had some good plot points. The King of Murgos himself is probably my favorite character. I felt the narrator did a good job. I would recommend this book.

Maybe I'm Amazed

I find myself amazed over and over again regarding the flexibility of the voice. Cameron Beierle does not disappoint!

The Story Continues... or Repeats

I love the characters. And love the world David has created. I love the narrator. There would be no need to even say who’s talking because his voices are so unique and on point. I was very disappointed that he didn’t narrate Belgarath the prequel. The twist with the king of Murgos was brilliant and unexpected.

I do not like the repetition. I get what the grand scheme of things is but it is blatantly written over and over. I get it. It is also obvious that facts in the first book were changed or poorly justified because the sequel was not planned. And C’Nedra’s character changed too much. I get she is a mother now but she was strong and willful in the first series. It was just too much of a 180.


Regardless of the flaws, it is a world you can walk into. My fellow fantasy lovers, this is for
you. Read the Belgariad first of course. Maybe read Polgara the sorceress before as well. DO NOT read Belgarath the Scorcer before. That book butchered everything Eddings created.

einfach wohlfühlen

Alle Bücher aus dieser Saga von Eddings sind wunderbar gesprochen, die Figuren wurden wirklich zum Leben erweckt. Die Sprache ist gut verständlich und die Stimme sehr angenehm.
