    1. So, I used to love David Eddings I thought his Belgariad series and Mallorean series were pretty awesome Granted I was in high school at the time and not the discerning reader I am today But I ve reread them frequently since and they are still pretty fresh and intriguing funny, and wry and interesting HOWEVER since then he s been doing nothing but recycling This book is third in what is likely a series of 4 It s awful It s the exact same lines and the exact same characters and the exact same jok [...]


    2. Well, honestly I haven t read the Malloreon and the Belgariad series, yet somebody strongly recommended David Leigh Eddings books for me to study, as I am a fantasy author myself From the Dreamers series, I learned how to control so many characters as per their role in the story Yet, in Crystal Gorge, as well as other series, gods and dreams are involved, things are quite revealed and foretold The most exciting part is, of course the details and backgrounds of the characters that made them likab [...]


    3. Out of all the David Eddings I ve read, this has been one of my least favorite I found that there was a lot of needless repetition Also, for a war, there hasn t been any danger to the main cast of characters.


    4. 3.5 stars.This books isn t bad, it s just not as good as the previous books It focused a lot on set up and the wars fought weren t actually fought so per say.So called Mother a characters whose existence is suddenly well known without having been mentioned before in the first two books provides just a bit too much of a safety net for our soldiers and warriors I enjoyed the expansion of knowledge of the land of the Malavi and The Northland of Dahlaine s part of the Land of Drahll But at the end o [...]


    5. This review is for whole The Dreamers seriesIn sort all four books are terrible The characters are plain and easily forgotten one which I can remember is a guy who was good at shooting a bow, his name was Longbow or probably something along the lines , there is cheating around every corner Eddings was cheating a little bit and with every book, but in this one it s just too much , the writing style is terrible and feels like listening to two idiots talking between themselves The book just doesn [...]


    6. Harvoin tulee luettua vapaaehtoisesti niin huonoa kirjaa, ettei siit ole juuri mit n hyv sanottavaa Juoni on k kk ja ennalta arvattava, henkil t suoria kopioita aiemmista kirjoista, maailma on t ynn aukkoja ja kieli on t nkk ja t ynn toistoa Samoja asioita toistetaan moneen kertaan, eri henkil iden n k kulmasta Suomentaja on my s mokannut pahemman kerran k ytt m ll sellaisia fantasiakiejaam sopimattomia sanoja kuin tavis ja tt ri Taitto on my s ep onnistunut, sivuilla on todella v h n teksti ja [...]


    7. The first half suffers from this series tendency to repeat the same stuff over and over, again, but at least it didn t fully recap the events of the second book The second half is straight through story.But still, almost every character, new and old alike, has the same damn personality The gentlemen from the horse culture and the queen do act confused occasionally, but they then turn around with the same style sarcastic quip sense of humor that everyone else has.Much as the most interesting PoV [...]


    8. warm fuzzies A total feel good comfort read for me I very much love the unexpected twists and unhappy surprises that take the characters off guard after all those preparations And another character I love to hate happy sigh view spoiler Apparently knowing the ending of book 4 didn t ruin book 3 for me, either hide spoiler


    9. Not bad if you read it in translation The Italian edition has been shortened noticeably.With 20 pages remaining, I gave this book 5 stars, but then I was reminded on Aracia s storyline and just ughhhh For me that s the main downside of the book.The ableism continues, but their enemy is smarter than they think Mwahaha.


    10. Under other circumstances, this could have been a three or even four star read I would like to point out a few things that may influence your decision You might like this book a lot than me if 1 You are reading this in its intended place as the third book in this series2 You have not read any of David Eddings other stories before3 You aren t constantly being kicked out of the story by the overt similarities between this series and his past works.A bit of BackgroundI first came across and loved [...]


    11. This book is truly awful The worst book in an already bad series Repetition is sometimes unavoidable, but there was a scene in the book that happened no less than 4 times through the eyes of different characters That would be okay if they were all adding something new to the scene, but that doesn t happen It s literally the same scene Other parts of the book, like clever lines the characters say, are sometimes repeated upwards of a dozen times The plot of this book also does not add anything to [...]


    12. Maybe because I started by tomo 3 I didn t get half of what was happeningMaybe I should invest in the previous volumes to get it right.But this is like LotR Same kind of dynamic and detailed description of everything And of course, those space time charater jumps that may be a bit difficult to let you track and know all the characters and places which have action going on at the same time.


    13. I had a difficult time reading this book It seems to me that the beast of age had finally launched its attack on the fine mind of Mr Eddings as he and his lovely bride worked on this series It breaks my heart, but my fondness for the man will allow me to stumble through the rest of the series.I also now understand the tragically negative reviews As far as I can tell he employed a form of writing, that I don t like even when it s well used, where the author tells a story covering the same time pe [...]


    14. Unfortunately, Crystal Gorge goes back on the good work of its predecessor, The Treasured One, and is by far the stodgiest book of the series so far The jumping, third person narration which was so ubiquitous in the previous two books seems really half hearted in this one, with some chapters having a such a vague presence I wasn t sure whose character I was supposed to be following On the other hand, every time a new protagonist shows up, the story line jumps backwards several years to retell th [...]


    15. This is the 3rd book in the series of The Dreamers Seriously, if you ve read the 1st book, you don t really need to waste your time and cash getting the others Cos the 2nd and 3rd are written in the exact same fashion, with very predictable read similar outcomes.Basically, the series is about 4 old and 4 young gods, set in a primitive age There is a cycle in place where, when it s time, the older gods will go to sleep and the younger ones will take over the running of the world.In the 1st book, [...]


    16. Okay, what happened There was a time Belgariad, the Elenium when the Eddings plots were fresh and new, when we loved their witty characters and felt included in their inside jokes and smug confidence when we read them because they gave you that adventure movie feel like Indiana Jones It s been a while since I read the first two, and they weren t really that great, but this one has begun the trend of extreme yuck Not only are we down to recycled characters and lines from our better days, the writ [...]


    17. This is the third book in the series and I have to say the writing style in beginning to annoy me as it is becoming quite sloppy In fact one bit of the story was repeated virtually word for word I know part of their style is to repeat a scene from another characters view point but this was just sloppy editing I do enjoy the stories and the concepts behind them a range of different nations all pulling together to fight the same threat and doing better together by sparking off each other than they [...]


    18. I read the Belgariad years ago and was pretty bored by it, but picked up this recent Eddings book out of curiosity and to see how it compared and contrasted with the Malazan series, which I m in the middle of reading This is partway through a series The subject matter is fantasy in the post Tolkien tradition of heroes, gods, and monsters, but the emotional tone is this weird bland cheeriness that reminds me of Teletubbies than Tolkien and doesn t fit the content at all There s a reasonable amo [...]


    19. Story time I started this book the tail end of summer break before school started up again Not because the book wasn t interesting, the characters weren t witty, and the inside jokes weren t fun, but because I can t pleasure read and do school work at the same time s the pity These books don t shine as brightly as the Elenium or the Belgariad That doesn t mean they aren t good, but it does mean that you have to purposely ignore the author lest you set yourself up for disappointment The back sto [...]


    20. It was hard to accept, seeing as how I love the Belgariad and Mallorean so much, how much I hated this book and the entire series All he does is recycle the same story lines and characters with different names In this book, he couldn t even come up with a full plot, and just recycled one little part among several different character s PoV The writing that was so fresh and witty in his first works has been reduced to a dry and boring formula Mr Eddings said a long time ago that people shouldn t w [...]


    21. For some reason I put this aside, maybe because I look at this series as Desmond looks at his last Dickens book in Lost once it s ended, no tri quadri pentalogies The concept is kind of interesting, and the depiction of the escalating battles was cool lots of warfare , although a bit too benign, it s like a 1960s Batman version of the previous sagas by this author The plot is serendipitous Lots of filler though, the annoyingly recurrent bringing up to speed all the characters.


    22. Rather a disappointment after the first two novels in the series Characters who had been well characterized became two dimensional It was top heavy with padding rehashing the same events from from the very slightly different perspective of different characters interminable dialogue rehashing the plot over and over Add to that the continuity errors that that crept in and this novel really looks like something cranked out just to meet a deadline.


    23. Wow, the characters are getting bored at doing the same thing and being upstaged by deus ex machina the writer seems bored, and the editor appears to have given up I think this book is only longer than the first two because the exposition was repeated at greater length and often, because even less happened in this one But I will finish the series, just to see if the old Eddings pops out anywhere in here.


    24. I simply couldn t finish this especially after discovering there was another after it It continues the over the top retelling rehashing the plot from the 1st and 2nd novel that becomes soul destroying by the end of the first chapter I m an Eddings fan, have the majority of their books and read some of their series times than I can remember but I think unfortunately its time for them to call it a day.


    25. The constant repetition is a little annoying, ok a lot annoying, I don t like the narration in this book very much The wars are alright, but this story is not very well though out, seriously the repetitions are driving me crazy, we don t need to hear the same narrative from each persons point of view.


    26. Will probably never finish reading this one It was no different than the first two books It was as if Eddings didn t have enough to fill four books so he kept rewriting the same thing over and over again I can t say that for certain, as I don t even have the fourth book, but by the third book the repetitiveness was too much for me.


    27. I tried to read the Dreamers series I read the first two books and only a fourth of the Crystal Gorge and it just didn t hold my interest Frankly I thought it was repetitive and boring Needless to say I will not read The Younger Gods book 4 I really liked the Belgariad and Malloreon series.


    28. I was so disappointed with this series The writing is sloppy, the characters without depth Different characters use the same phrases, I got the feeling David Eddings just wanted to get it finished and kindof gave up on getting it right in favour of a deadline A real shame.


    29. I seriously trashed the first book click here in this series and the second book is as equaully bad in fact the whole series is a waste of time Aviod like the plague.


    30. I almost gave this book a 2, but it s as good as the other ones, so I gave it a 3 The problem is, it s JUST like the other ones I had the hardest time getting through it because it felt so monotonous It s probably going to be a while before I get to the final book in the series.
