Read by Melissa: I'm a bit of a fantasy fan, and this had all the typical elements of a traditional fantasy story - a magic object, an unwitting hero, a tutor who befriends the hero and is more than what he seems.... it is an 'epic' story and the first book sets up the history and the likely direction of the saga. I was quite surprised to discover that Paolini was only a teenager himself when he wrote this. Quite impressive, although a little predictable at times.
