We listened to this as a family on a long car ride, and the kids were begging to get back in the car every time we stopped. Well read, well written, and enjoyed by everyone.
I really enjoyed the first book in the series except that the pace dragged a bit at various moments. This book took the sluggishness to a whole new level. There was barely any action or real intrigue. There were hours and hours of waiting around with little of real interest. I just wanted it to be over. The primary confrontation of this book - the moment you wait and wait and wait for - is VERY anticlimactic.
This installment was very entertaining, it started up where Eragon left. If you want to go through the series, it is a must read. I have to continue with the third installment, you will too.
Excellent. Enjoyed this audio book very much. Saved my life while driving on the road, as I was not bored during a long drive! Listener should read or listen to Eragon prior to this book for background information.
Wonderful. Exciting. Fantastic. Takes you far and away for hours! Young author has what it takes to keep you gripped with suspensive excitement. Narrator is superb. Don't miss it! Better than the movie.
I read both of the first two books of the trilogy and loved the story. Christopher Paolini is a very good author and developed the story and characters very well. The books are sold as childrens stories, but like the Harry Potter series, good stories are still good stories, and well worth reading, no matter the readers age.
I only hope the author will finish the trilogy soon.
step back into the world of Alagaesia, in the 2nd book of the inheritance trilogy, the first book was merely an appetizer, this book could very well be my favorite
