I don't know what it is about David Eddings that keeps you glued to his books. Is it his plots? No, they tend to be overly complex, even if they are linear. Is it his narrative? While he is definitely entertaining, Mr. Eddings often drags the story out a bit too long (hence, two 5-part series). Maybe it's the dialogue? It is, after all, highly witty.
No, what keeps me turning page after page are Mr. Eddings' characters. I don't recall ever having a fondness even remotely close to what I have with Garion, Belgarath, Pol, and Silk.

The penultimate book in the series, things are starting to come to a head. The Belgariad, from beginning to end, is a fantastic read. The characters will amuse and engage you and the plot, unlike some of his more recent works, is fresh and interesting. My own copies are falling apart from the number of times I have read them. I still enjoy them as much as I did as a teenager when I first read them. Highly recommended, but best to start at the Pawn of Prophesy and read the series from beginning to end.
