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….

Why split the book into two?
Great start - shame they split the book in two !
I think the story is engaging and it has elements that mean you could listen to it over and over.
Eragon the central character is growing and learning and does not get dull
Gerrad Doyle's performance overall is good; characters sound different and speech is clear.
There is already a film to this book which I have seen before getting the audio book and so far they are very different, but I am enjoying it.
I don't like the fact the books are split into two parts! There are longer books un-split!
