Love this story!
It has elements of so many other books but i feel like it stands alone very well. It is hard to compare.
Ya know, I have heard him read other books and i have loved his narrations. This one was great minus the voice he used for Saphira. It was so rough and completely not what i would have preferred especially since she was a girl dragon. That should have been the voice for all of the Urgals. I am sure he had his reasons but it was very frustrating to me and i ended up reading the book more than i listened to it because it bothered me that much.
The final moment with Brom was very touching for me. I felt his pain.
Five stars on everything but the narrators voice for Saphira. That was the only thing that bothered me.
Great book, one of my favorites. I did enjoy the ease of using an audio book, but I feel like the "tone" they chose to represent Saphira's voice was a little silly. I would have preferred a different voice actor over the story teller using funny voices for, not only the dragon, but multiple other character voices.
Disappointment and Rage
I loved this book when Robert Jordan wrote it (i.e. Eye of the World). Just add dragons and you are set. It felt like I was listening to an reenactment where the names of the characters were changed to protect the integrity of the original. A waste of my time, money, and effort.
