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, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders?
The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands….

"Great story, narration could have been better"
The voice choice for Saphira was quite awkward, and Eragon sounds very bland, as if his speech was automatically generated by a voice synthesizer. Other than that I enjoyed it a lot.
Great audiobook and amazing story, but the voice over for Saphora and Solembum were not good at all:s
Really great story, gripping and enjoyable. Shame that the voice of the dragon sounds more like a man than I think it should.
"Good for teens not adults"
Read this as a lad growing up and loved it but again as an adult and I find the writing waffley and convoluted. Was written by a 15 year old and it shows. Good for younger readers hope that the second one is better as I loved the series first time around
I loved reading them and enjoyed listening too. though the voice of the dragon i found very wrong. should have been more female.
"Not bad or good"
Starts kind of bland and stays there throughout. The writing itself isn't bad just uninspired.
A great book, told well in audio form. Gerrard Doyle sounds bizarre as saphira at first but grew on me the more I listened.
"Stupid voices for Saphira and solembum"
For female Saphira he sounds like a 80 year old man who's smoked all his life. Why???
"great book, average reader"
A brilliant fantasy story, although the reader is a bit monotone to begin with, gets much better by the end though
"Excellent writing, Excellent voice actor, but what was up with saphiras voice"
Overall excellent, Saphira does sound like a chain smoker but you sort of get used to it....
