This series is one of my all time favorites, and though I've read the book multiple times my heart still flutters as if it was the first time. I'm not so big on the voice acting for some of the characters, and there was some audio issues throughout the story (could have been a flawed download),otherwise happy to listen to the story again and again.

This book is amazing and epic, but it can be dense at times. That's why I love listening to it because Gerard solves that problem for me. There's so much happening and we get several points of views and different angels of these different stories that begin to intertwine. It's awesome and so interesting.
Eragon is definitely my favorite, although I suppose it would be hard for him not to be since he's the main character. But we really see him grow and become a young man and the rider the world needs him to be. He has his struggles, but they never deter him from what he knows what he needs to do.
I love Gerard! I've listened to Eragon as well and this was a re-listen for me, but the last time I listen to Eldest I was in the seventh grade and I'm 20 now. But I've always loved his storytelling and he makes this tale come to life so beautifully! I even put off really getting into the book because I wanted to listen to Gerard's rendition!
Definitely. I couldn't, unfortunately because life things kept getting in the way but I listened to this in about the span of a week! That was pretty insane to me because this is a super long audiobook and Eragon was much shorter and it took much longer to get through Eragon. I was so addicted though, I also finally have my phone all loaded up with the next one and I'm excited!
Yes! If you've ever been hesitant to pick this series up because of it's size or because you've heard how wordy Paolini can be- then you should definitely pick up the audiobook! Gerard does an amazing job in bringing the characters to life and listening through someone else tell the story makes the experience go quick. Highly, highly recommend!
I liked Gerard Doyle's performance, but I'm done with Christopher Paolini. The story just never seems to move forward, while he goes on and on describing details to the point that the storyline is lost. Clearly a case of so many tress you can't see the forest.
Maybe if he write a book in another ten years and I'm around to read it. I doubt his style will change though, he has a audience for his current style.
Can't comment as to the full story I gave up after a few chapters.
