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.
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.
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.
