    From her first moment at Merryweather High, Melinda Sordino knows she's an outcast. She busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, a major infraction in high-school society, so her old friends won't talk to her, and people she doesn't know glare at her. She retreats into her head, where the lies and hypocrisies of high school stand in stark relief to her own silence, making her all the more mute.

    "Fantastic audio book for 15+"
    Overall

    I have listened to several hundred audiobooks and this was on of the best I had heard. I listened to this on holiday and it was so good I finished listening within two days.

    Esperanza Ortega possesses all the treasures a young girl in Aguascalientes, Mexico could want. But a sudden tragedy shatters that dream, forcing Esperanza and Mama to flee to California and settle in a Mexican farm labor camp. There they confront the challenges of hard work, acceptance by their own people, and economic difficulties brought on by the Great Depression. Pam Munoz Ryan eloquently portrays the Mexican workers' plight in this abundant and passionate novel.

    "Very predictable"
    Overall

    I listened to this with my wife during a car journey. The readers accent was extremely distracting and when I finally finished the audiobook I felt I had wasted several hours when I could have listened to something else.

    Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesmera, land of the elves, for further training in the skills of the Dragon Rider: magic and swordsmanship. Soon he is on the journey of a lifetime, his eyes open to awe-inspiring new places and people, his days filled with fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and nothing is what it seems.

    "The female dragon's voice has a sex change"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the Eragon audio book and was looking forward to Eldest.

    The Eragon plot was good and the voices suited the characters including a female voice for the female dragon. In Eldest the same female dragon now has a rough male voice which ruined the audio book for me.

    Eldest has an extremely complex plot and seemed to go on and on and on and on. My daughter enjoyed it but I could not finish it.

    In summary Eragon was like the Hobbit, readable, concise with great character development. Eldest is more like the second book of the Lord of the Rings and I just lost patience with it.
