One of the best books on cd (and absolute worst films) we have come across. My children and I have a pretty long commute to and from school and we pass the time with fantasy books on cd. We have listened to the Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, and Eragon/Eldest (soon to be Brisngr Trilogy), as well as Lord of the Rings, and The Darks is Rising series several times. I have to say that the Eragon series is one of our personal favorites. It is very well written (by a 14 year old I believe!) action packed and full of magic ,mystery, and mayhem; I mean what more could a child or fun loving adult ask for. This series definitely gets two thumbs up from our family!! We are always suggesting others read this series and loaning out our cds and books.
