Polgara the sorceress

I read and reread David and, apparently, Leigh Eddings Belgariad series several times when I was younger, and most of the other series too, but it was only recently that I read Polgara the Sorceress, and man did it remind me of things that grated. All the women are tiny, people of particular races all do things in the same way, all women are the same in motives and thinking, ditto men, augh and grrr. 
The surface was an entertaining story and I liked Polgara's voice, but the underlying generalisations, nope.
