Pawn of Prophecy
Pawn of Prophecy | David Eddings
Selected as a 2003 Popular Paperback for Young Adults by the Young Adult Library Services Association Long ago, so the storyteller claimed, the evil God Torak sought dominion over all and drove the world to war. Now the one talisman keeping this sinister force from seizing power has been disturbedand no one will be safe. . . . Raised on a quiet farm by his Aunt Pol, Garion spends his days lounging in his aunts warm kitchen and playing in the surrounding fields with his friends. He has never believed in magic, despite the presence of a cloaked, shadowless stranger who has haunted him from a distance for years. But one afternoon, the wise storyteller Wolf appears and urges Garion and his aunt to leave the farm that very night. Without understanding why, Garion is whisked away from the only home he has ever knownand thrown into dark and unfamiliar lands. Thus begins an extraordinary quest to stop a reawakened evil from devouring all that is good. It is a journey that will lead Garion to discover his heritage and his future. For the magic that once seemed impossible to Garion is now his destiny. The first exciting adventure in David Eddingss The Belgariad Pawn of Prophecyis the newest addition to the Del Rey Imagine program, which offers the best in fantasy and science fiction for readers twelve and up.

1. If I‘m just taking a brain break, cozy mysteries are life.
2. I reread Little Women annually, but when I was hospitalized last year I had my husband bring me the first 3 books of The Belgariad (first one is tagged).
3. Pawn of Prophecy, Little Women/Little Men. Otherwise I‘m not much of a rereader, because there‘s so much on my TBR! The “Bibliophile Murders” by Kate Carlisle is a comfort series.

Thank you @MoonWitch94 for the tag!

I shouldn‘t laugh but Silk baiting Captain Brendig is always amusing. 😊

humouress I think Eddings got ‘sulky teenager‘ right without making Garion bratty. I was around the same age when I first read this series and I could empathise with him. Now my kids are the same age I still find him relatable. 1y
humouress Good pacing and enough description and little incidents to paint in the background and invest you in the characters. (edited) 1y
humouress It's not high literature but it is written well and lots of fun; it's a bit irreverent with a lot of banter between the characters. Best of all, it lived up to my memories of it.
I like the way Eddings shows and doesn't tell; mainly we learn about events as Garion does. But it's also easy to put together information and understand a bit more than he has, so far.

Restarting this because I had library e-books which were expiring.
I like the way Eddings took time to set the world up beginning with Garion‘s childhood; I think it grounds the start and invests us in the characters & their interactions as a family (group).
I also remember liking the way that the people of each nation have their own quirks and characteristics (hey, it‘s fantasy!) A farm-boy/ sword-in-the-stone trope story first published 1982

humouress I love the original cover art on the Corgi edition by Geoff Taylor; this is the 1991 edition (my firsthand copy). Can you believe it was Qb.99 when it was published? (edited) 1y

This was one of the books that got me really started in fantasy in my teens. I‘m going to re-read it for the first time after a long time and I hope it holds up 🤞🏼It was in the era when fantasy books were under 300 pages and some books suffer from being curtailed (on re-reading).
This original Corgi edition cover illustration (can‘t find the artist‘s name) typifies the (UK) fantasy covers of the time 💝 - they helped pull me into that world.

humouress I've found it: the cover artist is Geoff Taylor. 🎨 1y

Congrats Christie on your milestone! 🎉🥳

So many books I read & reread & recommend. I picked the tagged (1st book of The Belgariad) for both. I was 10 the first time I read The Belgariad & because of it, I fell in love with the epic fantasy genre. I was transported to another place with characters that felt so alive to me. I reread it every couple of years. I often recommend The Belgariad to anyone looking for a wonderful epic fantasy read.

LazyOwl I have read The Belgariad quite a few times, such nostalgia when I read 💕 2y

I read this on audiobook and didn't love the narration. But the story itself was enjoyable. I would have liked it a lot if I'd read it when I was younger. I'm looking forward to seeing where the series goes.

This is an 80's bk pblshd b4 YA fantasy became a thing & it shows.

A simple story with 👌 characters & enuf intrigue to keep us entertained. With newer fantasies I had cm to expect cnstnt twists, but this bk was predictable in a nostalgic, good way. I am continuing with the series.
I don't care much for the plot, but I am very interested in Polgara, Durnik & a few other characters.

“The first thing the boy Garion remembered was the kitchen at Faldor‘s farm. For all the rest of his life he had a special warm feeling for kitchens and those peculiar sounds and smells that seemed somehow to combine into a bustling seriousness that had to do with love and food and comfort and security and, above all, home. No matter how high Garion rose in life, he never forgot that all his memories began in that #kitchen.” #QuotsySept20

#20Series20Days Day 2:

The Belgariad qualifies as one of my #Top20Series by virtue of its sheer awesomeness! I read and fell in love this this fantasy series as a teenager—I would check the bookstores constantly in the hopes the next book had come out. Fast-paced, incredibly funny, and filled with a likable and very entertaining cast of characters this series makes me smile, even today, just thinking about it.

Now I am one who takes a lot of care of her books. I don‘t break my spines, I don‘t bend the corners, I treat my books like they are made of glass. So having bought this used through eBay I knew it wasn‘t going to be perfect. But BOTH the front and back covers made complete cracks (literally they cracked) and fell right off while I was reading it. That‘s how old this book is. My heart is breaking right now. Also I have about 50pgs left to read.

I'm not done it yet but so far I like it. It is just so engaging. It is about a boy named Garion who lives with his Aunt Pol in a remote farm village. He has three friends, but after an incident in a barn with one of them his Aunt Pol keeps both eyes on him at all times. Now he is moving away, reasons I don't know yet but I know I'm going to like the rest of the book and series.

March stats - a challenging month as I got to the point I couldn‘t focus on any of the new books I picked up. Thanks to my reread of The Belgariad, my stats aren‘t that bad.

I didn‘t get all the books read I had intended, but I did remove 14 books for #marchunshelfing (not all read this month). As soon as I can, these will be donated (and hopefully I can add a few more to this pile). Thanks @Clwojick for hosting this fun challenge.

Silk/Kheldar, a Drasnian prince, spy, and thief, is both naughty & nice in the Belgariad series. Introduced in Pawn of the Prophecy, he‘s described as fairly short with a rat-like face, scruffy black hair, narrow eyes, a very long nose that tends to twitch when his cleverness was about to secure him a profit.

Not reading as much these days as preparations for my excavation season ramp up but there is always time to post cool retro book covers. Today‘s isn‘t actually all that old but it is a beloved, battered 1984 paperback edition of Pawn of Prophecy. $2.95 and worth every penny. This was my favorite fantasy series as a teen and one that holds up (the original 5)—still makes me laugh every time I read it.

2. A tough choice. Jane Austen, the Brontë sisters, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, or George Eliot or any of the female writers/poets from the 1800s.
3. Not using the Oxford comma and misusing ‘s

There are so many fantastic child protagonists - Matilda, Coraline, HP, Fern, Laura Ingalls - the list goes on & on. But one that immediately came to mind was David Eddings‘s Garion, who is a child in the first couple books. I read this series when I was a tween and loved it. I re-read it every few years and I never get tired of the story.

The book (and the series) that hooked me on fantasy! I still remember that first rush of excitement at the discovery of a whole new magical world. #Sentimental #FallIntoBooks

This was the first fantasy book I ever read. It's hilarious and the sorcery captivated me, so it's #somethingmagical on two levels - the magic in the book and the spell it cast on me. #riotgrams
