Eragon: The Inheritance Cycle, Book 1
- By: Christopher Paolini
- Narrated by: Gerrard Doyle
- Length: 16 hrs and 22 mins
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.
Hard to get through

Good narration, But bad character portrayal.
Eragon is a childhood favorite of mine. this is a good narration of the story, however I felt eragon was portrayed too whiney; asking questions to complain rather than out of curiosity. Saphira is also voiced with a deep growling voice, Which would be fine if she actually spoke the words. The dragons could be voiced with more nuance and personality if they sounded more like people.
