Audio Books: Interitance Cycle | Brisignr & Inheritance

I finally finished the Inheritance cycle by Christopher Paolini. I think it too me almost 9 months to complete it and I really miss listening to it. I wrote about the first two books (Eragon and Eldest) here, if you would like to read the review.

So, as Eragon’s adventure and struggle against King Galbatorix finally comes to an end I am rather saddend that I actually finished the books. It was a great story, even though some parts were a bit slow. The character development was great, even though there are characters that seem very steady and make only little progress.

Brisingr and Inheritance follow Eragon as he becomes stronger, becomes more of a leader and a more skilled magician than he ever thought he could be. The end of the series of course leads to the confrontation with Galbatorix and many things are revealed that explain why exactly Eragon became a rider and how he was lead up to this point and how Galbatorix became so strong. It is a good ending, even though it’s different than some fans might want it to be. It’s a bit sad but honestly, it is a wonderful ending for Eragon, as he excells all riders and magicians before him and as there is much more for him to do and learn.

If you love Fantasy, especially medieval stories, read the Inheritance Cycle. It’s one of the best book series I have ever read. What a journey!

Audio Books: Interitance Cycle | Eragon & Eldest

   
 

It has been long since my last post about my current reading status. That’s because I was reading Eragon and Eldest and those are some whammy books. The Eldest audio book was 20 hours long. It took me 3 months to get through it. I did t really commit to listening every day because middle part of the book was a bit slow. I love reading the books which are totally tainted by the movie they attempted to make of Eragon. I wish they would redo the Inhertiance cycle and make it a movie series like Lord of the Rings. Try the books series is you like Fanatsy. It has a big fandom!

The Story of book 1 & 2 (Eragon & Eldest) without spoilers: Eragon Garrison is a ordinary farm boy who one day finds a strange egg out of which a dragon named Saphira hatches. The dragons and riders were thought to be distinct but Eragon now becomes the first dragon rider of the new age. The story begins with the murder of his uncle, commanded by the evil king Galbatorix who is enslaving all of the land of Alagasia. In rage Eragon begins a journey motivated by revenge, which leads him with his master Brom all across the land to fight enemies and to make allies, to be trained by the ancient elves in magic and combat and to grow up to be a mighty worrier who soon has to face king Galbatorix to overthrow his evil rule.
