The writing is much better than in the first book and the characters are more nuanced. There was also a good pace and some original ideas.

The audiobook was well done all around. As someone who loves stories, I loved the opportunity to listen to this great fantasy. I don't give it full stars only because the voices don't sound like how I imagined them when I read this book when I was younger, and there is really no way to help that and satisfy everyone.
Understandably the first half drags on due to eragons wound and his needed training but once that is completed his story and rorans story quickly pick up pace bringing us to an entertaining end of the book. Now it is on to the next book
