Gioco e imparo. Ediz. a colori home When I recently came across The Rivan Codex I wondered why Iad never added this book or even read it I did Allow me to point out that this book is definitely not one to be read from start to It s not that kind of book This is the book that you read when you want s not that kind of book This is the book that you read when you want gain a full understanding of everything concerning the world and its Le guide Ornitho history This is where you turn for religious teachings for currency names and exchange rates If anyone ever decided that they wanted to make a game or a movie based on these books then this is definitely the place that you want to look to get the specific information you would need to fully flesh out the worldBasically this book contains all of the interesting details about the world that would seem rather boring or unnecessary to a typical reader of the booksSo as far as being a good read goes this one just cannot even begin to compete As far as being an interesting source of information about an excellent series this is definitely top of the line material Almost a guide to writing fantasy It contains the notes which provided the details from which sprung both the Belgariad and Mallorean series Interesting for readers of both series especially to see where.

"Actually Uite Entertaining For What "uite entertaining for what is a collection of notes and reference materials used in the creation of the Garion books bookended by Eddings s firmly stated opinions about ow to go about writing a fantasy series This was pure nip to Me When I Was A Teenager I Am Fascinated By when I was a teenager I am fascinated by process of worldbuilding and while large chunks of this are fairly dry they re interesting at least to me And the bits that aren t purely notes are largely written in the formal style that I think Eddings does reasonably well the prose ends up being tighter and less digressive and actually as some rhythm Compare the origin of Belgarath Des femmes qui tombent here with the version inis eponymous bookIt was a little ironic that I felt this eld up fairly well when one of my big complaints of all of Eddings s work that I ve bothered to reread is the sloppiness and shallowness of the worldbuilding I think e did too much of the wrong kind of worldbuilding to lead to the sort of books I like there s too much istory and geography and not enough character of any kind So for example when we meet a secondary character e ends up being a shallow collection of racial characteristics because Eddings Kiss That Frog had a nice detailed list of what all the races were like but no particular thought seems toave been given as to what individual people were like outside of the main characters And so we end up with a world that feels very shallow overall And there are all sorts of minor bits of worldbuilding that end up getting retconned because they were invented separately from the needs of the actual storyThis is actually a book I would recommend to aspiring fantasists who are familiar with the Garion books because I think it The Seneca Scourge highlights many of the series s strengths and weaknesses I don t necessarily think Eddings s advice should be followed without uestion but that s true of all writing advice I find it impressive that they wrote this 460 page book just to prepare for writing 10 others As a fan of the original Belgariad and Mallorean as well as both Polgara the Sorceress and Belgarath the Sorcerer thisow to process provided insight than I initially expected I found much of it fascinating but think they could Caleo Leech have pared down things like currenc.
