This book was Just as awesome as the first two. The Narrator Gerand Doyle is Amazing and flawless. My only disappointment is reading the reviews for the Fourth book OMG! All of them hint at the same Disappointment. I don't think I am going to buy the last book in this series. It pains me greatly to say that, but after reading several dozen reviews I think I would rather create my own ending instead of having to live with the disappointment everyone else has felt. Anywhoo, Good Book. :)
This story was well read and my children and I could listen to it together. It was a great family book. I highly recommend it for long car-rides with the kids. For us, we just listened to the entire Inheritance Cycle together after dinner. I knit and my 11 year old did a little homework (the simple stuff) and my 8 year old drew while we listened together. I found that at dinner we were eating quickly and excitedly talking about what would happen next. It was a fantastic family reading experience.
The Series is on the top of my reading list!
He changes his voice to make each charter come to life thus making the story more believable.
Brisingr is an amazing book, Christopher Paolini has done a masterful job in etching his story! I can hardly wait for the next story to come out!! and I hope the the audio books comes out not to long afterward!!
The annoying part is that you have to wait for another book. Also the voice characterization of Safira grates on my nerves. As far as the writing I wish they would all stop pestering and nagging at Eragon. It seems like half of the book is dedicated to chewing out Eragon for some incompetency by either the dragon or the Queen of the Varden or Aria or the Elf dragon rider or someone is always chewing Eragon out. The whole series has been like that. Also I wish the dragon would quit calling Eragon little one.
I found this whole series enchanting as well as wonderful to listen to. Brisingr was a bit slow at times but well worth the intro to the rest of the story. Wish the movie had done the original book Eragon justice. Can't wait for Paolini to either continue Eragon's adventures with his beloved dragon or start another series equally as fun. What a fun series. Well worth the credits and time !
I was a tad disseminated that this was not the last book in the "trilogy" but I still love the book. Though it can ramble in places and the politics of some parts can move slow, it is still full of new adventure. I like that CP pays more attention to the growth of his characters in this book. Eragon and some others are wrestling with their demons and this book clearly portrays that.
BTW-the interview at the end of this book was really interesting, but only if you are a fan of the books. The editor's voice was SO VERY annoying and her laugh *shivers*......
Nice core story, but incredibly long-winded and overloaded with detail. My least favorite aspect however was the voice of Saphira. Instead of a dangerous, feminine voice I quite liked in the movie...we get a male rendition of the Sesame Street's Cookie Monster. I may make it thru this story as I went to a lot of work to burn the disks, etc....but this is just a 2 star story.
This one holds your interest all the way through, which is how all of the series has done, I can hardly wait for the next one in this series, I sure hope it doesn't take long to get the next book.
Paolini continues his wonderful storyline. I thoroughly enjoyed this book along with the first two in the series. The narration is wonderful. I highly recommend this to other listeners. Can't wait for his fourth book to come out!
