Adventure, sass and dragons.
I adore Eragon and Saphira's relationship. It rivals my love for my top ultimate bromance between Harry Ron.
I've never listened to any, but I absolutely love Gerard Doyle's voice. It's what convinced me to give other audiobooks a chance.
If you've considered this book and put it down because of mixed responses- let me try to convince you just once more. Eragon isn't for everyone, but it's full with a rich world and wonderful characters. The story is addicting and the parts that aren't filled with battles are still wonderful. I love being immersed in this world and you could too, if you give it a chance!
Yeah i would listen to it again. I have listened to it again, its great
Umm maybe Lord of the Rings but its compared to it a lot, But a better fit would be Terry Goodkind's Sword of truth books.
His voice SO FREAKING GOOD. One of the best readers ever. His accents and different voices are amazing and imaginative
.....don't watch the movie they made.
This first book of the series is probably my favorite. It was kinda like Star Wars mixed with Lord of the Rings (not the best comparison but please work with me). This book is very well read. Its pacing is good, the characters are great, and the action is awesome. This is one of my favorite audio books.
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
I loved the movie but the book was ten times better, as they always are.
This was a great story well told by the narrater. I love the story and Brom is awesome
The narrator's versatility made listening easy. I have read the books many times and Mr. Doyle effectively conveyed the emotions and tones I interpreted as I read.
I absolutely did not like Mr. Doyle's voice for Saphira. She is supposed to be a majestic, elegant FEMALE dragon and he made her sound like a sick toad. I really hope his voices for the other dragons in the next books are better. They talk so much throughout the story that the bad voices make it hard to listen.
I loved everything! the story. the performance. but the dragon's voice is just doesn't suit her. it sounds like an old man. that s the only part that i don't like.
all and all Its a great listen!
So much so that I can't stand listening to the audio books for the rest of the series. I understand that to some, a dragons voice might not be graceful, but don't you think that if Saphira and Eragon were communicating telepathically she would have a calming smooth feminine voice? I digress. I enjoy the story of the series and I have since been reading the physical media rather than listening.
Epic, interesting, and fun
This was a pretty good book. As an adult I found myself pleasantly surprised by this series. While the main character did initially have that slightly annoying sense of honor and black/white view of the world, the situations his encounters throughout the series change him to a more contemplative hero who still believes in good, but approaches it with a respect for the possible negative external effects of his actions.
The narration and writing make Eragon an outstanding listen. The details in the story show depth, insight, and planning.The narrator's voices are excellent (although it did take me awhile to adjust to such a masculine female Dragon voice!)
Eragon and Sopheria of course. Eragon is a wonderfully typical young man and Sopheria is a wise playful kitten.
His voice for all the different characters was excellent. Listening allows me to spend more time creating each scene in my head, with more detail, than just reading does.
An enchanting tale of dwarfs, dragons, elves and men.
