Lots of Ce’Nedra, and a few other people: the Belgariad, book 4

See Tehani’s post for the comments she gets! Castle of Wizardry: Book 4 of the Belgariad David Eddings Spppooooillllers!! Me This may have the dumbest title in the whole series. I don’t anyone ever calls Belgarath a wizard. And what exactly is meant to be the castle – the stronghold at Riva? That’s just ridiculous. […]

Journeying onwards and leaving endings hanging: The Belgariad Book 3

You can find Tehani’s post over here, if you want to see what comments she gets. More spoilers ahead! Magician’s Gambit: Book 3 of the Belgariad David Eddings Me Ce’Nedra gets to star in this book a bit more than the others, and I’m sure she loved that. Firstly, I think it’s totally awesome that […]

Racial stereotyping and plot development: the Belgariad, book 2

Tehani and I continue our re-read of David Eddings’ The Belgariad. Tehani’s got it over here, if you’d like to read the comments she gets; there are more spoilers ahead! Queen of Sorcery: Book 2 of the Belgariad David Eddings Me I’ve never figured out whether the title refers to Polgara or Salmissra, but that’s […]

Getting the band together: the Belgariad, Book One

Tehani and I have decided to re-read The Belgariad, and – partly to justify that, partly because it’s fun to compare notes – we’re blogging a conversation about each book. We respond to each other in the post itself, but you can find Tehani’s post over here if you’d like to read the conversation going […]

The Einstein Intersection

Oh Delany. You continue to impress and stagger me. And I don’t think I got some of the more subtle stuff that was going on here. SLIGHT spoilers. I don’t think it would compromise your enjoyment of the book. I really enjoyed this novel. It’s got such a clash of styles – sometimes the main […]

The Tamuli

Earlier this year, Tehani, Jo and I read and reviewed The Elenium (The Diamond Throne, The Ruby Knight, Sapphire Rose). It was fun! We enjoyed them – again! So we decided to do the same for The Tamuli! … and that took a bit longer.  ALEX: Dear readers, Here’s an interesting thing. We’ve been writing these reviews […]

The Ruby Knight

EDDINGS RE-READ: The Ruby Knight, BOOK TWO OF THE ELENIUM Because we just don’t have enough to do, Tehani, Joanne and I have decided to re-read The Elenium and The Tamuli trilogies by David (and Leigh) Eddings, and – partly to justify that, partly because it’s fun to compare notes – we’re blogging a conversation about […]

The Diamond Throne

EDDINGS RE-READ: The Diamond Throne, BOOK ONE OF THE ELENIUM Because we just don’t have enough to do, Tehani, Joanne and I have decided to re-read The Elenium and The Tamuli trilogies by David (and Leigh) Eddings, and – partly to justify that, partly because it’s fun to compare notes – we’re blogging a conversation […]

A Confusion of Princes

I was really looking forward to this book, so perhaps that’s why I was a bit disappointed: expectations too high? Khemri, our narrator, tells us straight up that he has died three times, and that this is the story of those deaths “and my life between.” It’s also made clear that although he is called […]

Galactic Suburbia 22

You can download or stream the episode from Galactic Suburbia, or get us from iTunes. In which we have run out of our supply of feminist ire for 2010 and are reduced to being happy bunnies with rainbows and vanilla sprinkles.  Also, we discuss re-reading, re-watching, and our (apparently unhealthy) emotional attachment to beloved books.
