Publisher's Summary

Als Eragon auf der Jagd einen glänzenden blauen Stein findet, ahnt er nicht, dass dieser Fund sein Leben verändern wird. Doch plötzlich zeichnen sich auf dessen Oberfläche feine Risse. Ein Drachenjunges entschlüpft der Schale und beschert Eragon ein Vermächtnis, das älter ist als die Welt...

Über Nacht wird Eragon in eine schicksalhafte Welt voller Magie und Macht geworfen. Elfen, Zwerge und Monster bevölkern Alagaesia, dessen grenzenlos grausamer Herrscher das Volk unterjocht. Mit nichts als einem Schwert und den Ratschlägen seines Lehrmeisters stellt sich Eragon dem Kampf gegen das Böse. An seiner Seite Saphira, der blaue Drache. Wird Eragon das Erbe des legendären Drachenreiters antreten können? Das Schicksal aller liegt in seiner Hand...

A Great Story!

A wonderful story. All of the characters are very likable, and it is exciting.
However, I did not like the translation: there were too many borrowed English words. (I bought this to practice my German!)
Finally, the reader was so-so. The dragon's voice was just silly (an echo chamber!).
However, I love the story (I have an English copy too), & I would definitely buy it again! Enjoy!

Excellent & Epic Fantasy

Firstly, to comment on the other reviews:

.... yes this is the German language version and should only be purchased by those with sufficient knowledge of this language!

I never read the book from Christoper Paolini or previously heard the English language audiobook version. All I can say is that Andreas Fröhlich’s performance of book 1, so many different characters and voices is tremendous.

Hugely enjoyable stuff!

Annoying reader

Would you try another book from Christopher Paolini and/or Andreas Fröhlich?

Yes Christopher Paolini.No Andreas Froehlich

Would you ever listen to anything by Christopher Paolini again?

Yes

Would you be willing to try another one of Andreas Fröhlich’s performances?

Hell no

Any additional comments?

I could not get through even an hour of it. It was so terrible. Compared to Die Unendliche Geschichte's Gert Heidenreich, Andreas Froehlich's performance is very inferior.

Make sure the language is correct!

I purchased the wrong language. Was my one book for the month. Looks like I'm screwed now.
