i would read books from Paolini
stop making Saphira's voice sound like an old guy who smokes too much. Saphira is a girl dragon.
The narrators lives for the dragons was horrible sounded more like some one had a cold the. A dragon. Other then that his normal speaking voice isn't bad
Don't get me wrong well worth the lisson if you can like I did get past the guys voices
I loved getting to know the characters even more than I already did.
I don't want to give away too much but some of the most memorable parts to me involved nasuada and galbatorix.
Although I am not a big fan of how he does saphira, I did grow to accept it and I enjoy the voices he does.
Flat out awesome!
Simply a fantastic performance. I'm going to look and see what other books Gerard Doyle has read. The variation of voices used is great. The emotion of the characters really came through. I know guys aren't suppose to have feelings but Mr Doyle will does a fine job of reminding you that they are there.
I think a film of this series with a decent budget would rival that of Lord of The Rings. Mr. Paolini deserves any and all the good results that come from this book. I know there was a movie done on this already but books relay a far better story. I think someone needs to take a swing at it.
I'm watching for other books by this author. I plan to have my daughter read this series.
I am a vet student, and I graduate in 2014.
The relationships that were developed throughout the series.
Maybe lord of the rings because there is a long quest and a struggle between good and evil.
All the dragons. He made their voices so unique and whimsical.
This book did not live up to its potential in my mind nor did it have to end like it did. My disappointment is largely directed to the state of the relationships between several main characters at the end. It could have been handled a lot better. I'm stuck with a bad taste in my mouth, similar to that of Mass Effect 3.
I'm falling asleep.
Disappointment, sadness, anger. I do not appreciate investing this kind of time in a series to be left with an ending that makes me want to forget ever hearing about it.
I might. In fact, I just listened to it for the second time, in part because I initially forgot I had listened to it before.
He did a pretty good job, even considering the range of voices to do
No, it was good, but neither great nor poor.
I didn't feel the book was as bad as some reviewers suggest. Yes, he could use an editor that forced him to "tighten things up" a bit, but he's FAR, FAR better (in that sense) than, say, Robert Jordan. He occasionally dwelled on things of little relevance, but it wasn't for entire books at a time.
The only thing I thought was a bit crazy was the whole maudlin "farewell tour" in the epilogue. I like a good epilogue (I had to write my own because the one at the end of Harry Potter 7 was unsatisfactory), but this was just silly.
Also, the whole "where do the dragons" go decision seemed a bit odd -- certainly there are other solutions.
I have listened to the other books in this series with diminishing enjoyment of each successive book but because I wanted to finish the series and get some closure I finally picked up this book when it dropped from 2 credits down to 1. I shouldn't have bothered. I LOATHE THIS BOOK. I'm barely two hours in and every paragraph is agony. I'd have stopped listening after only one hour but I paid a month's credit for this blasted thing and I have to get my money's worth. I have listened to a lot of books via Audible, some great, some not so great and some were bad but never have I wanted a refund. Until Now!
Please Audible can I have my credit back and erase this book from my library? I know I've already invested 70 hours in Eragon's story but frankly I don't care. Screw closure. Eragon can rot in unresolved plot hell I just want my credit back so I can put it towards another book, ANY other book.
When Eragon was friend zoned at the end, cracked me up.
Gerard did a great job reading this book, though I had trouble adjusting to the way he did the Dragon's voices. I had to stop thinking "Cookie Monster". After a while my mind just accepted it. Other then that, the story was told very well.
The first 5 chapters of this book need to be burned and rewritten, other then that, this book was great.
