I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
I've been waiting for this book to come out for ages. I was disappointed with book 3 as it went on a bit, but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. A couple of my friends were disappointed with the ending but you realised why he did the ending as he did. It's definitely a worthwhile listen. I also like the narrator
The was that Christopher Paolini wove the story to its FIRST (hint) conclusion. All of the loose ends were tied up. (Even if some of them were not story book ending) The conclusions made sense. In listening to the reasons WHY the events happened like they did... I had to agree.
This installment is the end piece of a Masterpiece started many years ago... Congratulations!
Enders Game... Logical development... entertaining...
Eragon... this character made me MAD...Happy...sad and all of this knowing he is one-of-a-kind.
Join the adventure with characters in the same stature as AVATAR... A must see...
Great epic fantasy
Eragon - Never forgot where he came from and stayed true to to whom he was... even as temptation and greatness pulled him into arogance... he stayed the course.
You have to love Saffira... great job by Gerald on all charachters, but the dragons were very well represented.
Without giving away the ending too much... I particularly identified with what happens after the battle has been won and you are left to lessor duties. The challenge of a superhero after a vanquish is more challenging than the battle itself. My favorite part was Eragons decision in the aftermath and his reasoning for it.
I almoast didn't buy this book because of the contraversy about the ending in the comments I read. In the end I had to buy this book because I had invested so much into it in the previous 3 books that Christopher had written. I was very much suprised and pleased when I found the ending to be more sofisticated and thought out than the reviews had led me to believe. It was a great story and very well written... I can see where the author had imersed himself into this world that he wrote about. In the end... I am very well satisfied and glad I invested the time to enoy this epic... and would be glad to read his future projects as well.
I love learning, teaching, and exploring!
I would listen again to catch up on details missed during the first listen.
I would have included more narrative from Saphira's perspective, or the other dragons for that matter. Her narrative is so different and intriguing.
This was my first time listening to Gerard Doyle. His performance was great and had many voices for the characters, although the dragon voices were not what I would have imagined.
No extreme reactions, just anxious to finish the cycle finally.
This story was well read and my children and I could listen to it together. It was a great family book. I highly recommend it for long car-rides with the kids. For us, we just listened to the entire Inheritance Cycle together after dinner. I knit and my 11 year old did a little homework (the simple stuff) and my 8 year old drew while we listened together. I found that at dinner we were eating quickly and excitedly talking about what would happen next. It was a fantastic family reading experience.
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.
