and the endless stream of insults to and fro between Polgara and Beldin. Ooh! and all the times that Polgara drops a perfectly timed one-liner to put Ce'Nedra in her place.

Ooh, very good choice! The soft side of Silk's beautifully done.

I like most of the end of The ELenium - Khalad's death to the end of that battle. Azash squishing Otha and Annias, and Martel getting his proper deathbed.

Re: Favourite moment in an Eddings novel?

It's good. I'll always prefer the Belgariad, but it's good.

If you get the three-in-one edition, it's good as a bookstop, if nothing else!

Re: Favourite moment in an Eddings novel?

Yeah, the Belgariad is great. *Sigh*

I'll look out for the books in the library although I'm not reading a lot of fantasy at the mo.(Thrillers are my current fad)

Re: Favourite moment in an Eddings novel?

Nuneaton? The place we all switch trains on our way up north? (Or maybe just me ) I've only ever seen the train station.

Yeah I'm in Leicester of the UK variety. (Don't hold it against me)

That's a cool offer, I'll PM you my address if that's okay??

Hmm, thinking of what I can offer in the swap.

Re: Favourite moment in an Eddings novel?

Yes, Nuneaton the travelled-through! We're going all metropolitan, with a Starbucks opening soon. Leicester's cool, so I've heard.

Don't worry about the swap - it'll be good book karma!

...

Was thinkg, BTW, I also really like the part in Queen of Sorcery where Lelldorin comes along in his minstrel disguise, and Garion goes all testosterone and attacks him. What a perfect peice of teenage boy-ness :P

Re: Favourite moment in an Eddings novel?

Funny, I was just thinking about the part where garion gets all vengeful, and kills those guys on his own, his first foray into independance and violence, which he enjoys, briefly. I like that we get a peek into his dark side.

Leicester ain't cool. Although Hinckley is pretty, and they have a good Am Dram Theatre, if you are so inclined. Worth a look seen as you aren't that far away.

Cool Re: Favourite moment in an Eddings novel?

i just love Kalten...who couldnt? I love the Gibberish bit (i think it was Tamuli?)
"Sorry, are they Gibbernese?"
"What?"
"You know, the ones who speak Gibberish?"
Gotta love him!
And when Beviar chops off the soldiers head, then prays for his soul..scary

And Silk...i adore Silk....*sing song voice* Silk, Silk, wonderful Silk!

Re: Favourite moment in an Eddings novel?

You are excused, as it's a seriously good quote! Thanks for the reminder.

Also, you are inducted into the Ulath appreciation group! Mmmm, Ulath!

Ooooh! Ooooh!
What about when Bevier's disguised as the one-eyed knight, and he's being all psychotic and too scary? All that stuff with his axe, adn glowering at people.

...

On reflection, I really do have problems with Eddings' female characters. They're so annoying!
