Commentaires

"It's an impressive start to a writing career that's sure to flourish." (Booklist)

"Doyle's range of accents is perfect for the multiple characters of this epic....On paper Eragon is a sprawling fantasy, filled with obvious nods to Tolkien and too many convenient plot devices. But on audio, it fills the ears with vivid characters, witty dialogue, and nail-biting battle scenes set in a magical world where a beautiful blue dragon and her rider are at the noble center of it all." (AudioFile

"An impressive epic fantasy." (Publishers Weekly

Great

Flawless! Thanks for your fabulous job! I've been worried by all the comments about Saphira's voice but I think it matches well. It didn't bother me at all.

Good reading but some flaws

The reading is good but the sounds of some characters aren't how it should be. The voice of Saphira was really annoying to hear and the ancient language has an over exaggerated sound. But the rest is good and pleasant to listen. Will listen to the second book.

Awesome book, perfect narrating

Loved it, Gerard Doyle really nailed the narrating ! I was first shocked by Saphira's voice (I always heard it like a beautiful female voice in my head), but it finally makes sense and I couldn't imagine it otherwise now.

narrator ruined it

I couldn't even finish listening to the first chapter. I have read/listened to this whole series before a nd know that it's excellent...but the narrator simply read it...and too fast...and did not "tell the story"

How to Tell If this Book is For You In 2 Easy Ques

To determine if you should read this series, answer these two questions. (1) Do you like traditional fantasy? The kind that might have a noble death but not the kind full of gang rapes and torture. This kind has farm boys with heroic destinies. (2) Are you bothered by books that borrow strongly off of books written before them? in this case most strongly The Lord of the Rings. That is, will it be unbearably annoying to you that a book that is not LotR has elves who sailed to our shores in silver ships, and powerful silver haired wizards blowing smokes rings, etc. Or can you overlook that and enjoy a different story with similar world building? If you like traditional fantasy and can handle the similarities, then you can enjoy this series. On a side note: I disagree with those who think the dragon's voice should be more feminine. I like it the way it is - after all, even Eragon himself assumed at first that Sapphira was male. The voices are dramatized but I think it is done well.

Saphira's Voice is Immersion Breaking

When Gerard Doyle voiced Saphira's first line ("Eragon.") in that deep, masculine, gravely voice, I thought, "oh this is just what baby Saphira sounds like. Strange choice, but I'll go with it. Maybe it'll change as Saphira matures." I was wrong. Doyle sounds like he's drunk doing an impression of the goblin/beast/thing Ludo from the movie Labyrinth (1986). Each time he reads a line for Saphira, I laugh a little, but I also cringe. It's hard to listen to and take seriously. The story overall is well written and has great momentum, but every time Saphira has anything to say, it breaks the immersion completely. I can't describe how disappointed I am.

The Narrator ruined it for me.

Ok the story is good! HOWEVER i had a real problem with the way the narrator made the female dragon sound just like Cookie Monster from Sesame Street.

it's a telepathic connection. No vocal cords are being used. The Dragon is not straining her throat to mimic human speach. ITS TELEPATHIC!!! Why on earth would you make her sound like that?
I can only imagine what the author reaction would be listening to this (face palm)!
I continued listening anyway because i like the story but the more i listened the more it grated on my nerves and i started thinking of the dragon as a sumo wrestler with laryngitis. I really hope the rest of the books in the series aren't like this. If so i may have to return them.

Saphira's voice sounds like Yoda!

What did you love best about Eragon?

I love this book and how unique the story is. However, the reader's use of a growly voice (which sounds disconcertingly like Yoda from Star Wars) is very jarring. Saphira should have a more feminine and regal-sounding voice, in my opinion. I debated returning the book for that reason alone, but the rest of the reading is quite good.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Saphira is my favorite character. She's very witty.

Delightful and Enjoyable

I don't hate to admit that I'm over 50 and absolutely loved this book. I didn't want to quit listening, I was saddened to hear it end -- and already started looking for the next part. This was, in my mind, not written for any particular age group - it far transcends that. I've already recommended it to several others and even thinking about listening to it again (and again). I'm sure that the second time around I'll pick up something that I missed or didn't find significant the first time around.
I've definitely formed my opinions on who I think the traitors might be - I'm on pins and needles until I find out.
I highly recommend this book to any that enjoy a good book - I don't even think that most would find the characters that unbelievable.

The way he voices the dragon is god awful if its communicating with telepathy why did he feel its voice so had to be so gruff. I honestly wouldnt have got this if i had known the voice would be like that! Wont be finishing the series :/ wasted my credit for the month

Narrator Ruins Phenomenal Story

This is one of my favorite series of all time. I almost stopped listening in the first chapter due to the terrible voice of Eragon but I powered through that due to my love of this story. However, the voice of Saphira is horrendously inaccurate. Saphira is a regal and female creature and should sound as such, not as a guttural and poor attempt at a powerful masculine voice more fitting of a Kull maybe in this story. I should have sampled before buying but it was the only option for a chance to listen to my favorite series and I was sorely mistaken in making this purchase. If you have read this story do not buy this the disappointment may even be greater than my disappointment in the movie if that gives you any scale to go off of. If you haven’t read this you may be able to stomach the performance. Good luck.

The Dragon is a GIRL

this is a great book which is only hurt by the nararator's inablilty to create a female dragon's voice. if you think you can get through this though than you will enjoy the read. I would have given it 4 stars but the naration brought it down a notch IMO

Utterly Awesome!

This was one of the rare books that so fully absorbed me that I forgot to worry or think of anything else. No "rewind because I've lost track" throughout the entire story. The author is very descriptive in creating the characters, enabling you to envision the events as they unfold. Equally as important, the narrator was more than excellent! While this type of fiction will never make a classic or provoke mind altering thought, if what you want is entertainment value, this is for you.

Gute Geschichte - Gut gelesen

Eragon ist eine typische Fantasy-Geschichte, junger Noch-nicht-Held findet Drachenei und muss schließlich die Welt vor dem Bösen retten. Also eigentlich nichts, was man nicht schon einmal irgendwo gelesen hätte. Trotzdem ist diese Geschicte sehr ansprechend und gut geschrieben und man ist gespannt auf den nächsten Teil. Bermekenswerter macht es die Geschichte, dass der Auto erst 15 Jahre alt war, als er sie schrieb!
Für die Geschichte würde ich eigentlich nur 4 Sterne geben, den letzten gebe ich für die unglaubliche gute Umsetzung von Gerard Doyle beim Vorlesen des Buches. Er liest sehr gut, den unterschiedlichen Charakteren werden verschiedene Stimmen und Dialekte zugeordnet, was die Geschichte sehr lebendig macht und den Zuhör-Spaß wirklich erhöht! Auch für non-native speaker sehr gut verständlich..

Just a good book but an excellent audio book!

Eragon by Christopher Paolini is a must have for all who love fantasy, dragons, or even just a good book in bed.

It follows the fashion of the mystical series: Magic, knights and dragons. The plot is as follows, briefed, of course: A boy on the verge of growing into a man discovers something, which will forever change his life - a dragon. When he loses his family, Eragon our hero vows to take up revenge.

The plot is nothing new, to put it nicely, but the narrator keeps this story alive! Each character has its different dialect. You actually think different persons were talking. Additionally the flaws of the prose (lots of telling, incorrect word usage, sentence blunders) of Christopher Paolini - who was only 15 when he wrote this book - are not as obvious in the spoken version.

If you like Tolkien, Harry Potter and so on this is just a book for you and due to the narrator you will receive many hours of fantastic fantasy story telling. The plot is only a 3 to 4 stars but the narrator brings this audio book up to 5 stars.

unterhaltsam, mehr auch nicht

Das Buch ist unterhaltsam, aber sicherlich keine Klassiker der Literaturgeschichte:)Der Sprecher ist meiner Meinung nach sehr gut, und ich höre ihm gerne zu. Es sei denn der Drache fängt an zu sprechen. Dann würde ich das Hörbuch am liebsten jedesmal in die Ecke werfen weil ich sie extrem nervtötent findeund bei manchen Dialogen habe ich die Augen verdreht.Wenn man über diese leichten Schwächen hinwegsehen kann und gerne Fantasy liest/hört, dann kann man sich Eragon mal anhören.

Als Kind geliebt, jetzt...

Ich habe Eragob als Kind geliebt. Jetzt muss ich leider sagen, dass es doch sehr schlicht geschrieben ist. Gerade für Englisch-Anfänger kann ich mir es gut als Lektüre vorstellen und auch der Sprecher leistet einen wunderbare Arbeit

Great story, mediocre voice

I love the story because I was obsessed with this series when I was growing up, but the voice sometimes seemed really unfitting. Eragon for example always sounded surprised which was not fitting into the context of the story.

good start to a great series

I loved everything about the book. The story was good and the narrator did a good job portraying the characters' feeling. I can't wait to finish the other books.
