    Check out this book in my very first video review Anyway onwards to the review I could read this one a hundred times and love it just the same This was my middle school book series I read it over and over and over and as you may have guessed over and over It had dragons And elves and magic and swordplay and not a love triangle in sightEven rereading it as an adult I justcannot separate all those happy memories So keep in mind my review might be is than a bit biased Eragon a farm boy stumbles upon a suspicious blue stone while hunting in the Spine an area that few would go to even in the best of times He loses sight of his prey but brings home the stone anyway figuring that he might sell itHowever once folks find out it's from the Spine they refuse to touch it Begrudgingly Eragon takes it home only to discover a few short days later that the stone is not a stoneit is an egg A dragon eggAnd while Saphira his young dragon is cute for the first few weeksSoon Eragon realizes that keeping a dragon even a young one is no easy task When a tragedy befalls Eragon's family he sets off with Brom a local storyteller and Saphira on a quest for revenge Along the way he meets both friend and foe He travels far farther that he ever dreamed possible and experiences losses that will irrevocably change him Nothing is dangerous than an enemy with nothing to lose he thought Which is what I have become Rereading this as an adult there are a few things I picked up this time around like how Eragon is always just strong enough to vanquish his enemies how he is always in the right place at the right time how he's able to pick up swordplay and magic at an unbelievable speed And yetThere is one thing that 11 year old me and 25 year old me would absolutely agreeOne thing that remains steadfast and true I will defend this book to my dying day This book is simply the best The best of the best Audiobook CommentsWhile the book may be the best of the bestthis audiobook narrated by Gerard Doyle was not In particular Saphira's voice was absolutely hands down the worst voice ever bestowed upon a dragon I could understand going for a deeper voice for a dragon but she's a young female dragon not a crotchety 1000 year old creature with a chip on his shoulder It was painful to listen to Over 10 hours of a deep guttural flem in the back of your throat sort of voice think yoda on steroidsYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads
