Paolini has brought us a magical world, and Doyle has brought it to life. He has a good speaking voice and gives each of the characters individuality and strength however small their part.
I really love this book. The story is told well but the voice used for the dragon is a bit obnoxious. It's all gurggly like someone who's smoked too much. I understand the perspective the narrator was going for and I can get over the annoying dragon voice because the story is just that wonderful. It's the kind of story you can really get wrapped up into and really makes you want to find out what happens next.
"Didn't get on with the narrator"
Had big expectations but I didn't get on with the narrator of this book, found his voice a bit annoying!
"eragon part one and two"
Love the book can't wait to read the next book, its about a boy who finds an egg hard as stone that seemed to flash there in front of his eyes. He doesn't know its an egg and tries to sell it for food. One day it hatches into a dragon, he learns how to look after it, but an evil king wants it. The king kills his stepfather and burns down his home. An old dragon rider finds him and helps him to get away. He teaches him about riding magic and being a loyal dragon rider. Its great.
