yes but not with this narrator
when Saphira parted the fight between eragon and Murtagh
kerry shale or some one more animated
Gerrard Doyle reads so excellently that I can imagine I am reading the book - as I did before getting the audio.
Stephen Fry does the same superb job of bringing a book - and its characters - to life in the Harry Potter series.
His dramatisation enabled me to follow at all times who was speaking when, and how they were feeling at the time.
It is too long (for me) to sit through in one sitting but I can imagine being alone on holiday and enjoying a virtual trip to the land of dragons and dwarves, elves and evil men through the audio book.
The book itself is slightly disappointing in leaving a few loose/unsatisfactory ends. yet how can one not, when concluding such an epic. I am glad I made this journey both by book and by audio.
Great story, Chrisopher Paolini has a rare talent and Gerard Doyle makes the story come alive
Eragon, seeing how he has to grow up and mature to face the challenges he has to face.
Best series ever!!!
The whole adventure of discovering the new world, and the sense of humour that Safira has.
Everything, he is a brilliant narator. Each caracter has their own voice, which is incredably suited for the specific caracter. The way that he narates bring acros the emotions and really enhances the story.
This is one of my fav books.
The narrator is pretty good and the storyline is
"Great story poor narrator"
I love these books and bought the audio versions with high expectations, the storyline is fantastic but I don't get along with the narrator who I find sounds a bit petulant at times. It's a real shame as I downloaded the first two books at once certain I would enjoy them becuase I couldn't stop reading them... a bit of a dissappointment!
"Well performed audio book"
It's in my top 20
Broa because although he doesn't last through the entire book his character is well thought out and had plenty of lore around him.
The start of the book had me hooked eragon finding the egg in. The spine the way it's written has you waiting to know more.
A fantasy epic
I found this to be a great book and have read it in all forms and now I can listen to it.
"Part two - still keeping me engaged"
It starts as the first half left off, there is more action in the second half.
Well read; at times the reader seems to have improved over the first book.
Its too long for one sitting but I did listen to it in all my spare time.
This book seems to move at a slower pace than the first half and quickly finished and leaving me wanting the next book.
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.
