Publisher's Summary

Darkness falls.... Despair abounds.... Evil reigns….

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have just saved the rebel state from destruction by the mighty forces of King Galbatorix, cruel ruler of the Empire. Now Eragon must travel to Ellesméra, land of the elves, for further training in magic and swordsmanship, the vital skills of the Dragon Rider. It is the journey of a lifetime, filled with awe-inspiring new places and people, each day a fresh adventure. But chaos and betrayal plague him at every turn, and Eragon isn't sure whom he can trust.

Meanwhile, his cousin Roran must fight a new battle back home in Carvahall - one that puts Eragon in even graver danger.

Will the king's dark hand strangle all resistance? Eragon may not escape with even his life....

    "Would definitely reccommend"

    An addictive story that has been excellently narrated. The plot makes this audiobook a must and its tone and characters are perfectly captured by Doyle's narration.

    "Alright, will listen again"

    Well, i can say its all well read apart from the voices of the dragons and the werecats, in my opinion they are jarring and ugly where they should be powerful and impressive, it's akin to a tiger trying to roar but instead grunting like a pig. Once one gets used to that its perfectly brilliant!

    "Worth a listen"

    Not the most sophisticated of its genre but worth a go

    Not to sure about the narration - some strange use of uk dialects and for some reason the Dragons all sound like Daleks from Dr Who...

    "Poor narrating"
    What disappointed you about Eldest - Part One?

    The narrator. The story is brilliant!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Saphira, but the Narrator killed her voice. It is supposed to be nice and pleasant sounding voice yet he gives her a gravely throat cancer voice which made me cringe every time she had a vocal line.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gerrard Doyle’s performances?

    No!!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eldest - Part One?

    N/a
