    David Eddings should be considered a staple of junior high school/high school fantasy, along with Piers Anthony, Robert Asprin, and Anne McCaffrey. The dialog of the characters in his books is truly playful, and captures more of the 'fun' that can be devoid in many fantasy novels. Yes, it doesn't hold its own, when you get older and are looking for deeper and richer fantasy. But, regardless, he is one of the most successful Fantasy writers of the 80s/90s and helped usher in the current age. I find it interesting that he passed away only two years after his wife passed away. Thank you Mr. Eddings for all of the page turning days and nights.
