Inheritance ranks high on the list of books I've read and listened to. It is a wonderful conclusion to an amazing series. It is well written, well read, and well worth the wait!
Christopher Paolini answered most, if not all, the questions I had saved in my mind from the other books. He balanced the "happy" with the "sad" to create a masterpiece.
Gerard Doyle read the story wonderfully. His performance helped me connect with the characters and feel what they felt. His reading of the dragons' voices was exactly what I imagined dragons would sound like, unlike the voice in the "Eragon" movie. I would definitely listen to other books narrated by Doyle.
I cheered. I laughed. I cried. I was disappointed every time I had to turn it off and couldn't wait to continue listening. Christopher Paolini concluded the Inheritance Cycle perfectly in this book. He took his time writing it, but it was definitely well worth the wait!
I'm rather sad it's over and I have to find something else to read. :-)
Have not finished the complete book, however, it is well done.
The different items that are revealed at just the right time
Murtage - scottish type voice.
When Eragon discovered the Tomb of Souls and what he found there.
I have enjoyed the complete series. Just wish they could the whole movie thing like Harry Potter.
Mr. Doyle is a fabulous narrator but he fell way short on this one. His voices, which have held true through every other book changed in this one. orik and nar gargvag were so much alike I confused them at one point. It is like a fly buzzing in my ear at times. Elva is another one that is just obnoxious. These are nit picky complaints and don't ruin the whole thing for me but do make it difficult. overall I love this book I read it first and only just got it on audible so I knew what I was getting into before I bought it. It does get long winded at times.
Yes from the beginning of the series
How the author used truth as a powerful weapon to defeat evil!
Best of series and Gerald Doyle was great. The one disappointment was Doyle changed Hrothgar's voice? It was perfect in the first 3 books. As an audio book fanatic, I noticed it right away.
Thrilling, adventurous yet sad.
I loved Saphira! Gerard Doyle was FANTASTIC!
BOTH! I fell in love along the way...Eragon grew up! Yet...it left me wanting more!
I'd like more!
In the top rankings
The story line and the Adventure.
His interpretation and expressions brought emotion to the book
I cried at the end. I did not want Eragon to be alone without Aria.
I adored the first two books, the story was very exciting and I could not stop reading. I felt like after the third book, the author extended the details of the story way too much, which it became very boring by the middle of book four. The writer went to huge amount of boring details, I would have loved to know more about the Empire, and some of the main characters of book, such as their history. For example, more details about father and mother of Shade Slayer, and Morzan.
Unexciting after the first half of the book was completed. I was expecting more from Christopher Paolini based on his way of telling an exciting story.
Adored his gentle voice, very interesting with regards to main characters, loved his Dragon voice.
To the writer, I admired your writing and the story of the first two books. If the story needs to extended, please introduce new characters, or more history with regards to the main characters, in order to make the story more exciting.
Loves to read but doesnt have time to turn the pages....
My only wish is that someone will fund the remainder of the movies....nothing could top these books, ever, but to finish the movies, would be the icing on the cake!!!!!!
When Eragon defeated Galbatorex!
The voices of the characters are out of this world! He was better than anyone!
I laughed and cried all through the movie!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Christopher Paolini........fund the movies!
Reader. Painter. Newspaper columnist. Nurse. Humane Society. Lake life. Walker. Happily remarried - was a widow.
I have read this entire series, and recommend them all. This series finale was mature in the sense that Harry Potter aged gracefully and took on adult tasks and knowledge. I found myself unable to put it down. The plot was wrapped up in an ingenious manner that was pleasing, exciting and satisfying. Although I must say goodbye to the characters, I feel they are on their way to a new adventure and I feel as though I am sending good friends on to the next chapter of their lives, versus being unhappy that they have to leave - I hope I said this well but it was good to read a series finale that was this WELL DONE! This was a very good read all on its own as well. Believable, well written, interesting, fast paced, fun, exciting, and ultimately - well, highly satisfying - highly. You won't be disappointed. Read this alone or start at the beginning, its a good read!
Loved, the book, loved the ending, i really really did love this, but the narration, at times is absolutely horrendous. Some of the voices are okay, but his decisions for some characters, ESPECIALLY Sapheria made me want to quit less than an hour in. If there was another version available I would recommend it very highly above this, but if this is it, as long as you are just in it for the story it wont disappoint. Christopher finishes the series very well I enjoyed most of the journey.
No, he nearly ruined this book for me, and in the process the final book in one of my favorite book series as well as wasted my last credits before cancelling my gold subscription.Gerard's performance was almost laughable, deciding to do a low deep graveling tone for Sapheria, which he could not always maintain well. I'm sorry but i cannot listen to this man again.
Great book, a lot of build but it pays off in the end at least to me.
