Read from November 11, 2012 to January 12, 2013

Honestly, I really liked reading the first two books of the series (Eragon and Eldest) because it kept me on the edge of my seat wanting for more things to happen on every page. I felt that these were paced justly and that details are told with less unnecessary crap. Come the third book (Brisingr), I felt bored flipping through the pages thinking how long it would take me to finish reading because things are beginning to be such a drag. I didn’t mind it though because I believe that authors do experience some down time every now and then (hey, nobody’s perfect just so you know). And here comes the fourth book, the conclusion which I was waiting for. I was hoping to forgive Brisingr for its dragging plot and story delivery but I guess Inheritance didn’t help either.

“I am not who I was,' he whispered, gripping the edges of the column, 'but I know who I am.'...
