Great book! I read it when I was a kid and loved it , then upon revisiting it now I'm in my 20s I still love it. Good performance by Paul Panting, the recording however is a bit poor quality, not as clear as some other audiobooks I've liststened to, and there's audible feedback in the background. Worth a listen though!

Another great installment in the series, with all the attention to detail and cool action sequences from the previous books. The one irregularity I found in this one is that Jack is described as English, rather than American. Perhaps just a mistake, but resulting in the performance of the character having an English accent throughout, which just sounded wrong! Other than that, good story and very good performance by Rupert Degas.

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.

I have read the Inheritance cycle before and adored the books, and am now thrilled to be able to listen to them on Audible. they're just as magical as before, brought to life beautifully by the narrator.
