    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.

    Overall

    OK, so after the first book which was marginally better I thought the second one started with promise but the middle section or Part 2 of this download it dragged and dragged. By the end I was just wanted to be done. Part of me wants to think the Paolini is a great writer, but I'm not sure. He's decriptive to a fault and when listening to all that narrative it gets boring. "Alright already with the scenery let's move on." The pacing is bad. It seemed like reading the equivalent of a bad buffet dinner..a little bit of everything when a tasteful entree would have been a better read or listen. If you've listen to JK Rowling stuff you will think Gerard Doyle is good. He's kinda like Jim Dale.
