Belgariad Universe Series
The Belgariad and the Malloreon are typical modern fantasy series. As such, they are aimed at making the reader feel good rather than at making them think or teaching them anything. Not only do they fail to provide anything in the way of original ideas or insight, however; they also present a seriously distorted view of reality and reinforce some extremely undesirable attitudes. David Eddings employs the usual fantasy stereotypes to perfection, with a collection of different characters on a quest, an assortment of magical items, and the clash of good and evil all pulled together in a simple and smoothly flowing narrative. The plot is so predictable there's no point giving it away — not just predictable in the sense of unoriginal, but predictable in that one could just about write the outlines for the last four books in each series after having read the first. The writing style is clear and simple, avoiding the worst excesses of some similar series.

The blurb on the back of the book I found began:. That is, of course, the blurb from the back of Pawn of Prophecy. I've still got it around somewhere; after more than 30 years, it's ready to fall apart. All that's preventing that is the clear packing tape I've used on it in several places. When the series got to Belgarath the Sorcerer , I realized that there were enough specific date references that it might just be possible to reverse-engineer the timeline that went into the books.
