Yes, the story is broad and deep, very rich and well written.
He brings the charatcers to life.
I was overall dissappointed with the story it felt it was a little dragged out. no real twists I was anxious for it to be over but had to get to the end
if you are a fan then you have to finish the story but I wouldnt recommend it
Gerard Doyle was very good,
Paolini started these books as a kid and finished as an adult. There is real growth, both in the characters and in writing. Still, his style is plagued with
Yes, i like to go back for a different interpretation of events
That he covered all the bases, and those he did not he makes clear they will be for other books.
Rorin giveing it to King Orin
Chris did a great job. I think people are mad because their a bunch of winy babies who wanted thing to go the way THEY wanted, not the way that logicaly needed to happen. If an auther wrights just to please the readers and not to fulfill his storie then thats the real dissapointment. Chris did a great job and i love the ending. Some stories are not ment to go on forever, even if the charicters are.
The narrator: He is worse than ever before.
Also the the story completly failed to engage me in any way.
Im starting to think, the only reason I read the 3rd book was because I had just read the 1st and second. The characters have, after being fleshed out in great detail at first, steadily been reduced to one dimensional characters, that its impossible to relate to.
I was disappointed. The book was bad, the narrator was too and I should have listened to myself and not bought both parts of the book, when even the preview was unbearable to listen to.
The story was ok at best. The ending while interesting seemed very lack luster. I did however really enjoy the interview at the the end. I hope very much he will come back to the stories of Alagaesia and fill out the gaping holes he has left behind with this book. Narrator was great uses all the same voices for the same characters. Over all I don't believe this book is worth 2 credits and i should have waiting until the price can down a bit.
This was really well done and was I think the best of the cycle things got wrapped up nicely but let room for revisiting Alagasia later on.
Here it is in a nutshell:
Great story ruined by a horrid ending and a plot that you just keeps dragging along.. chapter after chapter of useless ^%$#.
Just make up an ending for the series for yourself, it'll probably be more interesting.
This is the first time I wish I could return an audiobook.
Excellent Tetralogy! This is an addictive, totally engulfing series, which gripped me from the beginning & wouldn't let me go. Only the Harry Potter Septology exceeds it as a modern Escapism series! However none other compare. While everyone is entitled to their opinion, Christopher Paolini stayed true to the story line, He prepared us for ending with the Herbalist Angela's premonition of Eragon's future early in the series. Just remember, some endings aren't just an end, they are also a new beginning full of wonders & possibilities! He did a great job of wrapping up the story of Eragon & Saphira.
I can't wait for his future work & I would suggest he offer us a prequel entailing the rise & fall of the riders using Eragon or the Eldunarí as narrators to the young rider & Who is Angela The Herbalist & why is she so well respected, as well as other story lines I can't mention w/out giving away the last volume.
