About the Author
David Eddings was born in Washington State in 1931 and grew up near Seattle. He graduated from the University of Washington and went on to serve in the US Army. Subsequently he worked as a buyer for the Boeing company and taught college-level English. His first novel was a contemporary adventure, but he soon began a spectacular career as a fantasy writer with his bestselling series ‘The Belgariad’.

High Hunt is obviously Eddings' 1st book by the quality of the writing. While not bad, it was not as mature and deep as later novels. I still found the narration pleasant and am glad that I read the book, just a little disappointed.
I agree with some other reviewers in a couple areas. The book is a bit uneventful but the protagonist's thought processes were enjoyable. It also may be more entertaining to men, or people with weapons knowledge, or that hunt. Even being a female reader, without this knowledge, it was still understandable and did not diminish the sense of adventure.
The books itself I would rate a "3", but the KINDLE Edition of the book I rate a '2'. Despite the assurances that it's an updated file, free of conversion errors, the book is teeming with them...to the point of distraction. There were more errors in 1 converted chapter of High Hunt than there was in the entire converted version of A Dance With Dragons. And a lot of the errors are completely arbitrary and ridiculous, making no sense.
If you're interested in reading this book, save yourself some irritation and steer clear of the Kindle version.
