Eldest (Inheritance Cycle, Book 2) (The Inheritance Cycle)

Eldest - Christopher Paolini I have been listening to the Inheritance Series with my 11-year old son, Michael. I admit that I initially started it because Paolini wrote these books as a teen ager and I'm trying to motivate my son to write more than the bare minimum for every English assignment. These books are great. I am constantly amazed by the writing in this book - definitely impressive. Paolini has a great vocabulary (I wonder what he scored on the SATs?) and uses it well, without being overly descriptive. Very complex plots with gripping action. Eldest is the second in the series (the firs is Eragon). This book is long - 20 cds - but we were completely drawn in from the beginning all the way to the end. I highly recommend this series to fantasy fans, both young and old.
