    Story
    (17)

    Set on the Earth-like planet Helliconia, this is an epic chronicling the rise and fall of a civilization over more than a thousand years. The great drama of life on Helliconia is shaped by its cosmic limitations. In fierce contrasts of climate, whole seasons last for centuries and civilizations rise and fall as theplanet orbits the giant sun Freyr every 3000 years.

    Overall

    In all fairness I have only made it through the first 4 hours of the book but just can't bring myself to finish it. This appears to be a collection of stories that will probably come together at some point, but the first one was so tedious and slow paced that continuing is not worth it to me. The recording quality is also not that great. There are frequent long periods of silence between words and sentences and you often hear the narrator licking his lips.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    "Excellent book"
    Overall

    This is an excellent story and extremely well written. I can't wait for Paolini to come out with the next book. If you are into fantasy you will love this book.
