This book was a good closing for the Inheritance cycle. However, I personally felt that the character of Arya had drastically changed. She didn't seem to be the same Arya from the other books or suddenly changed somewhere in between the story line. What I did not like was the ending. I thought it was a little too unepical! The author could have tried a little harder with the ending.
Loved this book just like the other three. It is a book I can share with my 17 year old grandson and my 12 year old granddaughter. I love books that can be enjoyed my diffeent age groups.
This book is about how good wins over bad and the confilcts along the way`
Gerard Doyle brings a wide virety of voices, that makes telling the different people in the book appart much easier for my grandkids
I loved being able to share this book with my grand kids
A great series to Read/Listen to - wonderful voice acting
Eragon, you see great character development. Even though very powerful stays very humble.
Good use of different voices for each character. I especially liked Saphiras voice
The scene at Brom's tomb. Really had me guessing for a bit.
Wonderful book. But really felt like it ended then we got 6-8 more chapters instead of a simple epilogue. I really think he didn't want it to end..
In order to drink some of my top favorite books, however it is very wordy and starts off extremely slow. I didn't particularly care for this narrator or the way he depicted the characters however it is a fitting end to a great story.
I don't really know what to compare this book too it's actually a mix of several different stories. Ordinary person longs to be extraordinary, discovers he is in fact, extraordinarily. Learns to wield that power, takes on the great oppressing empire. I guess when it comes right down to it, this story almost equates with the Star Wars books.
Overall I don't care for the cadence of his speech, or the way he voices the dragons... especially Saphira! Dragon voices exists only in the mind, and the way he does the gravelly, throaty, gargled, hack voices annoys me to no end.
NO, it's far too slow and deliberate to sit though in one chunk.
Despite my negative sounding comments, I really love this series, really love the story. I do suggest listening to it if you get the chance!
The story was mostly empty filler that had no relevance to the plot, every part was filled with extreme amounts lengthy description, and could not fathom a guess to how many times he said the word "but". The book was more than twice as long as it should have been, and the climax was 5 hours before the end of the book!!! The conclusion should have taken an hour maybe two to finish, but he kept droning on and on about nothing. Also just about every character was a whiny little baby that had the same inner dialogue. Every major character was virtually the same person. I am very disappointed with the way this series ended up.
Prior to listening to Inheritance, I re-listened to the first 3 books. Not only did I find the continuation to be seamless, the book does have the ability to stand alone if the first books weren't read. I was a bit disappointed with the ending. But it was very enjoyable to watch the maturing of the characters I had come to love as well as to really enlarge upon Rowan (sp?) and the people of Carver Hall.
This was the best of the series.
The beginning was slow and I was wondering why the things were happening that were happening but it all made sense and came together with a bang.
The experieace was a good one.
I can't beleive he ended it the way he did he wen't into detale's on some of the people that he really didn't need to.He left out some of the detales for more of the important ones.
He slaughtered the dragons voices ....she is a girl dragon !!!!!
I enjoyed the book very much, but it got kind of wordy at the end.
Its a good book, But I really didnt like the way it ended at all i think there was way more he could have done with it.
Doyle is one of my favorite's. He does a great job and I instantly connected with him in the first book.
ugh, never been so disappointed in an ending! Very long and drawn out book and I couldn't believe that it needed 3 hours to wrap everything up and then it was done horrible wrong in my opinion. I really don't know how you could spend a decade writing a series and then end it like that and be happy with yourself. Anyway, I actually liked the way Eragon won the climatic battle, I literally laughed out loud because I thought it was brilliant.
As heartbreaking as the end was, I still love the whole series. I would have changed the ending, but then I am the eternal romantic. I hope Christopher Paolini writes more about Alagasia, although i would read pretty much anything he writes.
