Critiques

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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"

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

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.

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.

Good Start

Being the first book of a 4 part series, Eragon is a wonderful starting point. This is an exciting book to start out with. It teases in all the right places I find to have you look forward to the books going forward. The title as a whole was not utter perfection but was just good enough to keep me interested.

The story itself was extremely interesting. The imagination that went into making this book and knowing the history of how this book came into being made it all the more an interesting title. I appreciate the fact that the book doesn't shy away from concepts such as death, love and sacrifice. The book is a pretty good experience all together, flows pretty well in general.

A Winner. Captivating from beginning to end.

I downloaded this book mainly for my almost teenage son because it was written by a young man not much older than he is. I decided to go ahead and "screen" it first on my 2 hour daily commute and absolutely enjoyed it immensely. It is written in a simple, straightforward way and is filled with plenty of action and adventure. Besides "Envy", this is the other of my 2 favorite audiobooks I have listened to on audible so far. I can't wait for the next one in the trilogy.

Download this book. It is masterful storytelling. You won't be disappointed!

Very Captivating Book

Being a fan of fantasy, I very much enjoyed this Book, it was great. It had all the details that hold your interest. i never wanted to put it down! This Book doesn't have alot of in depth surprises around the corner, however the book is not lacking for it. The Charachters are easy to identify with and the story flows well.For readers like myself who simply want to enjoy a well told story, this one is a definate jewel and i can't wait for the next installment!

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..

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.

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.

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 audiobook, but

Love the audiobook, I also like most of the speakers voices. I just can‘t get over how his Saphira voice sounds like a non-dyslectic Yoda.

Fantasy but very real

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

I liked the middle-aged atmosphere in this book. You always want to know what comes next and the different world is magnificently described! The author has much fantasy and he lets the main character act so normal and down to earth that you have to like him immediately.

Welcher Moment von Eragon ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

From my point of view, there isn't a particular moment that i prefer over the other but the whole development of Eragon is amazing.

Wie hat Ihnen Gerard Doyle als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

The author did catch the books atmosphere quite right. I enjoyed listening to his voice very much.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Eragon will not only pleases fantasy fans. The book is about a young man who makes a huge development and learns doing the right things a taking wise decisions.

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.
