I've been eagerly awaiting Brisingr ever since I finished Eldest (almost a year ago). So when it got closer to the release date I started getting scared that that I would be disappointed somehow because of how much I had hyped up myself. Paolini Far from disappoints in this book. His writing keeps getting better and better and this is the best book so far. And Gerard Doyle is one of the best readers in the business. I can always tell which character is talking, male or female; which is difficult to pull off for a lot of readers I've heard.
*If you haven't picked up this series then you're depriving yourself! But start at the begining with "Eragon" for the full effect.
keeps getting better
i was excited after reading Eldest, but i felt the story just dragged on. I was just sick of it by the end. If the next book is like this one i won't be making the purchase
I loved the first two books, Eragon and Eldest, but Brisingr is my favorite so far. So many twists and turns. It made me laugh out loud and cry. I loved this book. My only regret is now I'll have to wait for the last one to come out to see how it all ends.
Granted, there is a lot more detail and not as much action in this book, but it makes it perfect for expanding upon the world that Paolini has created. You learn about the politics and the emotional struggles that Eragon is facing. I found this to be the perfect segue between Eldest and the 4th book as it helps to explain so much. For everyone who has said that this book is slow, they are unwilling to relax and simply enjoy the breathtaking detail that Paolini has inserted into the land. I can't wait for book 4 to finish up the story!
I am a huge fan of this series and loved this book. Like the others it is beautifully paced and full of imagination. I did not realize until the end that it was not the end of the series. So I anxiously now await more to come.
