"Eldest" By: Christopher Paolini book review
By: Christopher Paolini,
2005; 1056 pages,
Have a long car trip ahead of you? No? Just a daily commute? Well, if you have any time that you usually spend listening to bad talk radio, you really should give Christopher Paolini's series a listen. First came Eragon, then came Eldest.
Seriously, if you can, listen to these books. They're really very very good. And the audio is great.
I almost always find it easier to listen to novels of the fantasy genre than to sit down and read them. I don't know why that is, but it's been true ever since I picked up my first fantasy novel. (Thanks Dr. Tom Bredehoft and your senior seminar! It really opened up my reading.)
Dragons, Elves, Dwarves, War, and just a few humans thrown in the mix and you've got another great story.
