Also, like Kay said, a lot of people kept reading because we want to know what happens next. (less)
I didn't think it was possible for this series to get worse after Eldest. I was wrong. This book is nearly 800 pages of pointless adjectives, with perhaps six pages' worth of plot... most of which is just review (described in *excruciating* detail) from the previous books.
Don't waste your time or money... unless you really need a cure for insomnia.
The story was good and what I have come to expect from this series. But honestly, it did not have to be 748 pages long. I understand the author's desire to flesh out his characters, but the way that he kept going back and forth between the different characters I found annoying. The descriptions of th ...more
To compress all of my thoughts and the plot in to only one word, this has to be it - Unpredictable.
Certain events that happened in the book really took me by surprise and I have to applaud Christopher Paolini to even think about such a complex plot. I could hardly guess what might happen in the next few pages, and the only way for me to find out was to keep my head buried deep within its depth.
Seriously, an ...more
(SPOILER ALERT) The wedding scene was particularly terrible. It was so long and drawn out. I don't like to go to long drawn out weddings in real life. Reading one was that much worse. (END S ...more

What the fart.
WHAT THE FART.
This series goes downhill rapidly with every book I read. I really liked the first book , I found the world-building to be amazing and original, even though I noticed the similarities to other fantasy novels. I didn't mind, though. The second book was then a big disappo ...more
I thought Brisingr was a lot better than Eldest.
Christopher Paolini is good author.
Oromis, Glaedr and Angela are one of my favourite characters.
Brisingr is one of my favourite books. Alhamdulillah.
We all know Paolini killed his trilogy by turning it into a "cycle" but making us read through another 784 pages after his horrific second book, Eldest, was grounds for banishment to the Empire's dungeons.
The book basically had no plot, just a bunch of diversions to keep you reading ...more

Brisingr is perhaps, in my view, the better novel of all three currently in circulation. It is certainly written with greater confidence and signs of maturity. Although do not by any means equate word count with maturity. yes Brisingr is the far larger novel of all the Inheritence books and yet is perhaps still oddly the m ...more
To be fair, I've never been ecstatic about the Inheritance trilogy (although I think there's going to be one more book because 700 pages just wasn't long enough). Eragon was a pleasant enough, if unoriginal, story, made more impressive because of Paolini's young age. (Heck, when I was 15, I w ...more
I will probably never know how this book ends.
Why did Paolini have to make this a four book series. He easily could have taken the 35 pages of actual plot from this book and prepended it to the beginning of the next book. The pace of this book was excruciating.
Does there really have to be thre ...more
The reason for the 4th book was this was for character development? What character development, the characters are more one sided then ever. You can almost predict what they will do before they do it because they are just ...more
I probably wouldn't be so critical, but the video he posted stating why it took so long to get to book 3 said that he didn't feel he could do it in one book. Bad news. I bet that if you read book 1, book 2, and 3 selected chapters of book 3, you could go st ...more
I am anxious to see how the story ends, I just hate it when I can't stop thinking about the author's prose and plot choices while I'm reading a book.
Eragon and Saphira have just barely survived the latest battle between the Empire and Varden, and learned the truth about Eragon's parentage. Their encounter with Murtagh and Thorn has made them realize that they desperately need to revisit their teachers in Ellesmera, but their multitudes of promises keep them from returning. They must help Roran recover Katrina from the Ra'zac, rally forces for the Varden, and find a way to thwart Murtagh. ...more
This series keeps getting better and better! i think what makes this series so enjoyable for me is the fact that I love the narrator in the audiobooks. I feel like if I didn't have that like for him I might not enjoy the books as much but I love them dearly.
The world this author has created is so intricate and detailed and every character is so well written and developed that I applaud his writing.
