I purchased the hardback version of this book and Eldest for my stepson last Christmas because he has a thing about Dragons as lots of boys do. With the movie version hitting the cinemas soon I thought I'd listen to this to see which I enjoy the most. The first thing that struck me about Eragon is the talent the writer has to transport you to a believable mythical time and place especially as I believe he was 15 when the book was written.If you love Lord of the Rings and such books you could do a lot worse than this as the feel is very much the same.Dwarfs ,Elves and Shades are just a sample of characters you'll come across, some good some evil but there is battle action , magic , happiness and sorrow all rolled together.The narrator is skilled at creating character voices from Eragon himself through the spectrum of Riders, Kings , Dragons and such and my only reason for not giving this audiobook 5 stars is that it ended just when I was so hungry to find out what happens next. I will be downloading Eldest without a doubt.

Having already read the book, it seemed a bit indulgent to get the audio version for a long trip - however it was well worth it! This audio version will become a favourite for sure - little details stand out on retelling. It's an all action, magical mix of adventure, spell casting and battle. It would suit a Tolkien or Pullman fan especially - Paolini certainly has a wide ranging vocabulary! A terrific book from start to finish, narrated in style. Highly recommended.

A very good book, and voiced extremely well by a reader with the ability to add a range of voices to differentiate the numerous characters of the book.
