At long last, the completion of the Inheritance Series. I was a little leary because of the reviews, but I realized that some people are fearless, self-empowered and cruel when anonymous. This fourth book was just what it needed to be. It kept my interest and finished up the storylines brilliantly. I repeatedly found my self wanting the story to never end. What an overall incredible piece of work. Well done. I hope everyone enjoys!
Yes. I am a fan of both the Narator and the author of the Inheritance Cycle. This is the climactic ending of the series (for now).
I would have fixed the ending. I think that the author instead of letting the story flow to it's natural conclusions forced the ending to fit the forshadowing from the previous books. It felt very contrived instead of the natural flow the rest of the series has.
I have both read and listened to the book and find that I enjoyed both experiences. Gerald Doyle is a master story teller that brings to life the characters and the setting of the book. He fits the emotions of the characters into his story telling beautifully that helps you care and imerse yourself into the characters wonderfully.
There are scenes in the book that pull out strong emotion and people are put under extreme circumstances that must be addressed and delt with.
After finishing the book and talking to friends and family that have also read the story I find that most people are in agreement that 9/10 of the book is fantastic but that the end leaves the reader confused and a bit let down. I still recommend the book to all readers of Fantasy as it is a strong story line and good writing and story telling.
Great ending to a great series!
The narrator did have quite a chalenge: so many characters and so many dragons to give voices to.
I was very happy with the way Paolini painted out the aftermath of the final battle...but I would have liked a different ending for the Nasuada/Mortag story line.
One can tell that Mr. Paolini has matured a great deal as his imagination has waned a bit. However, it was a fitting ending to a long awaited book.
Yes if they read all of the books. However I was disappointed in this book. It was not as good as the earlier ones.
Thank you Chris Paulini! He wrapped up the saga in the style of his forebears! I can move on now to the next saga!
This book ended the series well. CP, did a good job tying up the loose ends. I have to admit I was a little disappointed that they didn't all go riding off into the sunset, life partner in hand, I appreciate the artistic and thought felt ending to the series. It had great ups and downs and the characters become even more rounded. I definitely think any loose ends people still see are left on purpose for other stories. All in all, it may be my favorite of all the books.
Interesting, yet predictable.
Although the story line was very predicable, Paolini is a very imaginative and talented writer. I look forward to seeing how is writing expands.
His range of voices and expressions definitely keep one’s attention. His voice does NOT loll a person to sleep on long over-night drives.
It was too long for one sitting, but I definitely did NOT want to start anything else until I finished.
Hopelessly addicted to Audio Books! I started listening as a distraction to the aggravation of driving, now I listen all the time :)
Yes, anyone who enjoys this genre will immediately move this series toward the top of their list of favorites.
The ending... put together quite nicely with the right amount of conclusion versus the feeling of being
An epic clash of Evil dictator King versus the last Dragon Rider
After laying a total rotten egg with book 3, Brisinger, Paolini gets back on track with a terrific conclusion to his Eragon series. Highly recommended, especially for those who enjoy this genre. I am looking forward to Paolini's next endeavor.
I have loved this series since I downloaded the first book. Gerard Doyle is an extremely talented narrator who brings the characters to life. Once again Paolini did a wonderful job of writing suspencful scenes full of action balanced with parts of the book which further describe the mysterious land of Alegasia. I was very sad for the series to end as I have grown very attached to all of the characters (even the bad guys!). I'm sure that Paolini is ready to write something different and expand his professional skills as a writer, but I hope this is not the last we see of Sophera and Eragon. His writing has been very inspirational to me. I look forward to reading all of his new books in the future.
