Great Book - Horrible Narration

I’ve owned this series of books for several years and as I started reading back through them I decided to get the audible version... it was a waste. I couldn’t get past the first chapter because the narration was so bad. The overly thick accent of the narrator made it difficult enough, but when Saphira’s ‘voice’ was conveyed he made it sound like a troll! I couldn’t listen any longer. Dragons are majestic, magical, and powerful in Paolini’s world. The narrator made her sound brutish, unintelligent, and barely understandable. Absolutely horrible! Literally the worst narration I’ve heard on audible in my many years and scores of titles.

You see growth in the Author

I found myself enjoying this title the more the title progressed. It was one of those books that tends to build so smoothly up to those points of sheer action. Also of specific note is the growth that one is able to witness in the general writing style of the author. The way Christopher Paolini seems to tackle certain issues in this book as opposed to book one (Eragon) also lent to the book being even more enjoyable than the previous.

Book 2 of the Inheritance Cycle is your typical mythical fantasy novel. I couldn't help but notice slight similarities with Star Wars regarding some of the twists that the story takes. That being said, I found the entire title put together very well. In this book you get a glimpse in the lives of the elves and see as Eragon himself grows into an impressive Dragon Rider. Another great addition to this story was Roran, Eragon's cousin, whose own struggles and quest becomes even more challenging and exciting than Eragon's it would seem. A number of new characters were introduced in this title and it would seem that no one from the previous novel was forgotten either, all reappearing in some form or another through the scope of the title.

The narration grew on me throughout this book. You sometimes forget that it is one person doing the narration even though there are so many distinct voices, tones and intonations in the title. The narration in this case only adds to the title here.

Truly an impressive listen all over. I look forward to listening to the third book in this series.

Overall OK, but....

Like the book- hate the voice used for all the Dragons. Saphira is a female dragon but for some reason Doyle believes her voice should sound just like Cookie Monster from Sesame Street.

WOW!

I thought book one was good but book two is even better with more twists and unexpected surprises. I loved the action and suspense. I could not stop listening to the book and cannot wait until book 3 comes out to finish the story.

Great Story

Great story. A standard hero quest but very enjoyable to listen to and I found myself caring about the characters. It built well upon Eragon and I'm looking forward to the next book. I found myself admiring the narrator more and more as the book went on he did an excellent job. I think this is one story best heard, I agree with another reviewer this may have been a bit heavy reading, but being able to relax and enjoy the ride was perfect. Good job and definitely will finish out the series when it is done.

Engaging yet predictable

Paolini continues to spin his story that is engaging and entertaining to listen to. Though, as with his first novel, the plot is predictable and dialogue that is intended to be dramatic is often laughably absurd. The story is fun to listen to, but Paolini still needs to refine his style and his stories would benefit from more original plot twists (echoes heavily of LOTR and The Wheel of Time).

That being said, I've just downloaded Brisingr and am about to continue the tale...

Fabulous for all ages!

The narration on this amazing book is excellent! I listened to this book while on an exercise bike, and increased to 1 hour a day because I wanted to hear what would happen next! It's a great listen for a long drive, as well.

I would recommend this to any fantasy/sci-fi fan for a great adventure.

The author doesn't talk down to the audience, and he has taken a character through a difficult changes with help from wise mentors and good friends. A good reminder for those of us on either side of that equation.

ABSOLUTELY THE GREATEST

The story is without a doubt, one of the best I've ever been exposed to. It is simple to follow, yet full of enough adventure to thrill any reader.
If the book doesn't keep your attention, the reader, Mr Doyle will keep you interested. His voice inflections, various voices, etc are the very best I've heard since becoming an Audible member.
Everyone with the remotest interest needs to download/ buy this book!

schöne story, sehr vorhersehbar.

Die Eragon-Saga ist phantasievoll und immerhin so gut geschrieben, dass man immer weiterhören will. Allerdings gibt es viel zu viele Andeutungen und Vorausschauen. Das ist eigentlich schade, weil es Spannung nimmt. Trotzdem noch drei Sterne, weil das Anhören immerhin so viel Spaß macht, dass man weiterhört, um zu erfahren, ob die Handlung sich tatsächlich wie erwartet entwickelt - was sie meistens tut.

Tolle Geschickte

Eragon ist eine der wenigen Geschichten die ich mir immer wieder lesen und anhören kann. Ich kann die Bücher und Hörbücher nur empfehlen. A must read or listen.

Tolle Story, super Sprecher!

Auch für "non-native-speaker" sehr gut zu verstehen. Der Sprecher spricht ein klares und verständliches Englisch, sodass man dem Hörbuch stets gut folgen kann. Kenne die Bücher auch auf deutsch, ist aber schon länger her, dass ich sie gelesen hab. Dementsprechend war die englische Variante sehr erfrischend! Klare Empfehlung an alle, die mit "guten" Englischkenntnissen mal ein Englischsprachiges Hörbuch testen wollen.
