Yes, this whole series is amazing!! I have started my sister, mother, father, friends and even my husband on it, it's a great story for people of all ages and gender!
The self-discovery trip where they travel and find the help they need.
When Nasuada annd Murtagh have their weird relationship after the capture. They should soo get together, we need another book!
Great ending to the series, a little slow at times, but a great story overall and very good!!
Recent convert to audio books and have never "read" as much as I have in the last 6 months
This series is well worth reading and well narrated except for a few characters (see below for why). The story is extremely well thought out and though I believe this book lacked the imaginative clout of the previous ones it was well written and a satisfactory ending to the series as a whole.
Corky from "Days".
As long as it is not as bad as the movie that they already made...
While Paolini does not come close to great fantasy by the likes of George MacDonald or J.R.R. Tolkien, the story proves interesting and provided an enjoyable ride. The reader did a great job with the voices and characterizations, which added greatly to the experience.
hard not to enjoy this one, only complaint is that there were a bunch of questions left unanswered.
After reading some of the other reviews for this book, I was set to be disappointed and unsatisfied, but to my delight it turned out to be a seamless continuation of the story with no let downs or dissatisfying conclusions. It was perfect in my opinion and Christopher Paolini at his best. If you liked or loved the other books in the series, I see no reason why you would not like or love Inheritance just as much.
Although I have always liked this story, I never expected to be so sad to see it come to an end, but that is life, even in fiction.
Most certainly.. If you have read the first 3 you got to read (or listen to) this final chapter.
No one else could do justice to Sophia quite like Gerard.
Quite a few!
A must read (listen)
How he was able to wrap things up.
The interactions with the dragons and the magic system.
The idea of the story was good, the design of the plot and development of the characters was inadequate... lacking!
I would not recommend this book to someone looking for a well crafted and well written story. I would, however, recommend this book to someone learning how to tell a story, so they learn not to make the same mistakes Paolini made.
The biggest mistakes being:
1). borrowing whole concepts, plot lines and structure from many different sources (star wars, The Lord of the rings, a wizard of earthsea, dune, the sword of truth, among others) and not transforming them into his own original story
2). writing very immature characters, especially those who are supposed to be very old. In other situations, the path Paolini designed for the evolution of a character, Roran in this case, is non sensical. Leaders are not flogged to death (or near death) for saving platoons even when contradicting stupid orders from superiors ....
3). not being consistent with the story. Paolini contradicts himself in many ways throughout the story, for example, dragon riders are supposed to be above all kings and queens in the land, yet Eragon has to bow and pledge alliance to everyone.
4). and it goes on and on....
Miles Vorkosigan saga .... Fantastic!!!
I had not heard any of Gerard Doyle's performances before but I greatly enjoyed this one. He portrayed each character in a different way and transports you to the world he is reading.
Well .... Give away the hard copies I have
Paolini has a lot of talent. I hope he goes to College and receives good training on how to avoid the problems he run into while writing the Eragon series.
This series started off strong but this last book was a let down. It seems as though the author just decided to "phone it in" for the final installment. Disappointed.
I would eventually listen to all the books again.
Narrator did a decent job of the characters in the story.
I had watch the movie of the first book then listen to the book. The movie turn into a big disappiontment! IF the story line was followed, these books could make a good mini-series on the Si-Fi channel, I would watch it.
