I thought Eragon Audiobook was good but Eldest Audiobook is even better with more twists and unexpected surprises. I loved the action and suspense. I could not stop listening to the audiobook and cannot wait until audiobook 3 comes out to finish the story.
Introduce to Eldest Audiobook
Eldest is the second audiobook in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini and the sequel to Eragon. Eldest was first published in hardcover on August 23, 2005, and was released in paperback in September 2006. Eldest has been released in an audiobook format, and as an ebook. Like Eragon, Eldest became a New York Times bestseller.
Eldest is the sequel to Eragon and is the second book in Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle. Eragon and Saphira, saviors of the rebel state must travel to Ellesmera, a land of elves to complete their Dragon Rider training. A journey begins, full of adventure and betrayal where Eragon will be lucky to escape with his life.
Eldest will once again thrill and excite young fantasy authors around the world. The tale is full of excitement, awash with swords and sorcery, full to the brim with friendship and betrayal. Eragon and Saphira once again play the leading roles but we now have Eragon’s cousin Roran playing the supporting role as he defends his mountain community from the evil King’s men.
The plot of Eldest Audiobook free
Eldest Audiobook begins following several important events in Eragon Audiobook. The story is the continued adventures of Eragon and his dragon Saphira, centering on their journey to the realm of the Elves in order to further Eragon’s training as a Dragon Rider.
Other plots in the story focus on Roran, Eragon’s cousin, who leads the inhabitants of Carvahall to Surda to join the Varden, and Nasuada as she takes on her father’s role as leader of the Varden. Eldest ends at the Battle of the Burning Plains, where Eragon faces a new Dragon Rider, Murtagh, and a new dragon, Thorn.
I found myself enjoying this title the more the title progressed. It was one of those audiobooks that tends to build so smoothly up to those points of sheer action. Also of specific note is the growth that one is able to witness in the general writing style of the author. The way Christopher Paolini seems to tackle certain issues in Eldest Audiobook as opposed to audiobook one (Eragon) also lent to the book being even more enjoyable than the previous.
Audiobook 2 of the Inheritance Cycle is your typical mythical fantasy novel. I couldn’t help but notice slight similarities with Star Wars regarding some of the twists that the story takes. That being said, I found the entire title put together very well.
This book is very detailed and can drag on at times. It’s a good story and we get to learn a bit more about some of the other characters. The world is magical and again Doyle brings it to life. The story and characters have been given much more depth, but it could be a little hard going on the younger listeners.
This audiobook has some great plot twists, so if you’ve not read or listened to this story before, you’re in for a ride. This audiobook plunges you into the history, myths and culture of Algaesia. We get to see so much more of the country than before, and just as the world develops, the characters do too.
The whole time there is a sense of danger, knowing that eventually Eragon must do his duty and lead the rebellion, knowing that there’s a battle coming and characters might not survive.
About the Narrator
The narration on this amazing audiobook is excellent! I listened to this book while on an exercise bike, and increased to 1 hour a day because I wanted to hear what would happen next! It’s a great listen for a long drive, as well. Once again, I think Doyle did a great job. His narration is engaging and each of the voices for the characters is fairly distinctive. His pacing and tone are also good.
Doyle needs to distinguish more between the male and female peasants of Carvahall. At times it was confusing as to who was who. I’m also starting to get tired of the voice he uses for Saphira. Since she’s a female dragon, her voice needs to be a little more feminine. The growliness can be harsh on the ears when she’s speaking for long passages. Apart from that, he did a good job.
