Inheritance: The Inheritance Cycle, Book 4 - Part 2 | [Christopher Paolini]

Inheritance: The Inheritance Cycle, Book 4 - Part 2

Not so very long ago, Eragon-Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now, the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances.

Publisher's Summary

Part Two of the Fourth Book of the Inheritance Cycle - Inheritance, featuring an interview with the author and his editor at the end of the recording.

It began with Eragon.... It ends with Inheritance.

Not so very long ago, Eragon-Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider, was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now, the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders.

Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances.

The Rider and his dragon have come farther than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alaga√ęsia? And if so, at what cost?

    "Production error spoilt the end"

    Why is it necessary to repeat 12 minutes of the final part of the book? Did the audio engineer fall asleep?

    I found the climax of the battle exciting and unpredictable, as it should be, and then enjoyed the long gentle wind down towards the end, even if it was marred by the 12 minute repeat.

    The cynic in me says there will be a book 5, which will of course ruin the author's credibility but make him some more money. After all, I had to pay for this book twice when US listeners did not. Times are tough, even for teenage writers.

    "As always i loved it but"

    I didnt need the interview tagged on the end again!!! it was on the end of Brisigr, and then on the end of here too! really?



    In terms of the audiobook itself, i love it. the characters are narrated well, and given their own detail. even minor characters are given the individuality they deserve, and it is consistent throughout! sad to see it end really

    "Great Ending"

    Christopher Paolini has finished of a great story with style. I really enjoyed it. I agree that ssplitting it over two credits was a bit mean, but all the same a great story. There is a lot going on in this book as there are so many little stories that happen one after the other and each one keeps you going. I listened to this in the car for the most part which I would point out that you need to be careful about as your focus can leave the road. Anyway, thank you Christopher Paolini.

    "A good ending to a great series"
    Any additional comments?

    Having read the books years ago, I thought it would be great to listened to them, over slightly disappointed that the books are each split into 2, meaning I have to pay 8 credits instead of 4 (though most books on audible seem to be like that regardless of length, which I feel is a bit cheeky) but to make it worse, my Audible version repeated part of the ending meaning I didn't get the last 40 minutes of the story, which was rather annoying....The performance by the narrator was amazing just like the other books in this series - He is a very talented narrator and I could listen to him all day!

    "Lame Ending"

    Only 4 stars for the last in this epic series. I enjoyed it, the story was more rounded, characterisations given more substance and the story line was looking back, only going to go one way, BUT, the ending was long drawn out and unworthy of the writer or the books. The editor should have taken him to task over it because it was dire. Not because of the story or the ending but because of how long it took to get there.The plot line had always been clear it would never end that way so to drag it out on and on was odd when the author had already stated it over and over previously. I guess Christopher Paolini just didnt want to leave!
    And then, to make it worse, my Audible version repeated the last part again!
    Up until that point I could almost forgive the book split between two credits and the repeated interview (which incidentally after the narrators dulcet tones really jars) and so, only 4 stars overall, note the performance gets 5, it was very very good and well done to Gerrard Doyle for narrating all the novels as well as he has.
