Publisher's Summary

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, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by a king whose evil knows no bounds. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders?
The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands….

Inspired by those who came before.

Would you listen to Eragon - Part One again? Why?

I quite enjoyed the story and loved the narration by Gerrard Doyle.

What did you like best about this story?

Sooooo much better than the movie. A good start to what appears to be a great Fantasy series.

Which character – as performed by Gerrard Doyle – was your favorite?

Loved the portrayal of Brom, loved the character in the movie as portrayed by Jeremy Irons (a most underutilised actor) and it was great to see him fleshed out in the book and greatly portrayed by Gerrard.

Any additional comments?

The story and so many things in this book are obviously inspired by Tolkiens' works, but done with a obvious love of the original source and with just the right spin to make it his own world, an incredible feat for any author let alone a 16 year old novice (I believe that's how old Mr Paolini was when he finished Eragon).I look forward to sharing this book with my children as they grow older as it is a fine addition to anyone who loves Dragons and the bond they can have with their riders.

I wonder if Anne McCaffrey ever read Eragon?
