    When Eragon finds a polished 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 soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight, his simple life is shattered and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance.

    Bradley says: "Inspired by those who came before."

    Story
    Would you listen to Eragon - Part One again? Why?

    Yes, this is an audio book I will listen to over and over again as well loved characters come to life. Gerrard Doyle has a beautiful voice and the life he instills in his characters makes thems so much more real - and there are quite a few.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed how you share Eragons journey from simple farm boy to Dragon Rider and I love Saphira's development and the sense of humour and possessiveness she has for Eragon. The whole world that you are introduced to, the magic, elves, dwarfs, dragons and intrigues are thoroughly enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Saphira and Eragon drink too much mead and Saphira belches a huge flame before passing out


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Come and experience the re-birth of a legend and one man's journey from innocent farm boy to fierce Dragon Rider


    Any additional comments?

    The movie that was made would have been a huge success if the film makers had stayed true to the characters in the book. It's the reason the Harry Potter and Twilight transition from book to film was so successful - the films stayed true to the characters and story lines whereas with Eragon the characters in the film had, at best, only a vague resemblance to the detailed descriptions of the characters in the book (& Arya looked nothing like her description in the book) and, if you had not read the books, the film made no sense at all
