    Re: Anyone else a fan of Eddings?

    Uh, no one needed to know that. XD

    Read (multiple times) the Belgariad, Mallorean, (plus the Rivan Codex, Belgarath the Sorcerer, and Polgara the Sorceress) Elenium, and Tamuli series, and love them. It's a bit too 1D for me to worship them, but I do enjoy his humor. ^^ Ulath's always been a special favorite of mine from the Eosia/Daresia books, as has Talen and Kalten. For the others... hmm, Silk, of course, and Velvet, and of course Beldin. Characters I despise: Ce'Nedra (sorry, folks) and Ehlana.

    omg Kalten. That guy had the funniest lines.

    After chopping off some polticians head he goes "he was so estatic he lost his head" or something like that.

    I think I actually loled

    It's quite amusing that women tend to hate these characters whereas men tend to be more accepting as they're just exhibiting 'typical' women traits (whining, arguing, tantrums when don't they get their own way..) :D *puts on hard hat and runs for cover*

    I like sarcasm and smugness (confidence) :D

    Sparhawk was the man, and if you argue, that blue guy will come down and induce death on you :D

    Re: Anybody here like David Eddings?

    I didn't like the Sparhawk series, so call the Blue Man on me! I found them a drag to be perfectly honest!

    Also, I Love Ce'Nedra. I think she's strong, feisty, intelligent, and wonderful. I'd rather be friends with her than with Ariana to be perfectly honest, XeNedra ROCKS!

    Well, he obviously either didn't hear me or isn't particularly bothered at the moment.

    What about the Dreamers Quartet? I love Rabbit. He's so cool. I haven't finished the fourth book yet but I do love them!

    Re: Anyone else a fan of Eddings?

    So do I, but not that much...:p
    A lot of the characters were also pretty similar, I had a bit of trouble telling Kalten and Khalad apart at first :)

    Re: Anybody here like David Eddings?

    ^^ Well, Khalad's rather brighter...:D

    I love these, much lighter than some other fantasy but definitely entertaining. I prefer the Elenium and Tamuli over the Belgariad and Mallorean though, probably because it's Eddings' sarky humour I like rather than his plots, which aren't the best really.

    *smacks Elladan over the head* :p Hey, I try not to do that! :p But I suspect it's one reason why I can't enjoy WoT either. :) Like Jaime Lannister, though? :D

    @ Unraveller: Never knew that. ^^

    Man, that's totally awesome. Let's just hope she doesn't turn out like the character :p

    Re: Anyone else a fan of Eddings?

    And then when all else fails you turn to violence ~ again quite typical :D

    Ditto that ~ I like his humour too. Not sure how Khalad/Kalten could be confused either :duh:

    Re: Anybody here like David Eddings?

    I cannot see how Khalad and Kalten can get mixed together. Particularly because Khalad never stuck in my head >_<

    Kalten is so much more distinctive than him.

    Re: Anybody here like David Eddings?

    I read two of Eddings series. i was on a ship and underway so i did not have a whole lot to do in my spare time. To be honest I am not a fan of David Eddings. His books are alright but similar to eatting cotton candy when you eat too much you get sick.

    Re: Anybody here like David Eddings?

    I love the Belgariad plot better than any others.

    I just like all the Gods, and Mortals, romances and creatures that are in those books. The Belgariad is one of those rare sets of books where I hate no one and love everyone... even the mad Taur Urgas, and the cool calculating Kal Zakath... In fact I think I rather like Zakath, he's quite sexy!

    Re: Anybody here like David Eddings?

    I have too say I rather like Edding's charachter. Sparhawk - need I say more? Silk - the epitomy of smooth. Kalten - The trusty sidekick. What was the kid's name, Khalad brother, the thief? I loved how he set himself up for the godling in disguise's future husband.

    He's Talen, and I loved that part too :). Although, I'd have to argue that Talen himself didn't have much choice in the matter...
