I read the first two books. Eragon was gripping and I couldn't wait for the second. That was good too. The wait was on for the final in the (supposed) trilogy.
However with the release of Brsingr, and having spent the money, time and energy, my overall impression was that it was a long-winded stall. The plot didn't quicken, it dragged.
I moved from loving Mr. Paolini to desperately hoping that the mind that blow mine with the first book, kept me panting for the second and third, comes up with something amazing for the forth.
I really don't see it and perhaps I can't and shouldn't, that is the beautiful thing about good writers.
At this point I don't know when the final one will be out, I hope soon and I sincerely hope to be blown away.

Thanks for your opinion, free speach is always interesting, I am not about to launch into a slanging match with you, but want to thank you for your insight to my exisitance, and the fact that I actually have a job, and also have a lot of activities outside my job, the fact that I enjoy Eragon, is just one of the facets in my life, but thank you for your suggestion anyway, as I said FREE SPEECH often brings out the best in people, I hope you also have a very interesting life, and that your happy. To everyone else that loves Eragon, bring on the positive coments and have a great day.........

Christopher Paolini's books are great no matter what anyone says. Saphira and Eragon are both characters anyone can relate to and I find that the Inheritance Cycle is very intertaining. I know that they will stay with me for a very long time to come. I can not wait for the 4th book to come out and hopefully, he will start another series soon after.

You know what guys, my favorite part in all of the eragon books is when saphira gets drunk and tries to sing. is the dragon an alcoholic or something?

okay Dragon Fan or Ginnapher, that thing you said about a broken arm is so stupid!! you're saying the person who broke his arm stole that idea from another arm broken person, please. whatever you've been smoking, you might want to limit it.
and I never said that the two series sounded the same or I'd be comparing anything with elves in it to Lord of the rings. but if you ever suffer through those book you will find that Eragon has stolen some ideas/names from those books. Helen your like a broken record how many times are you going to tell us the same thing and if you want to leave this busy world of yours, you could...um think, I'll try and be creative quit your job and/or get a freaken hobbie?!

HI Dragon fan, yes at my age it is a bit strange to be saying I love these books and this writer, but he takes me to a much more interesting world than this, and removes me from everyday life, so I cannot wait for the next book as it is my escapisim from office and everyday life, glad to see you think the same way, so bring on the next one and hopefully another after it, so I can have my holidays in this other world for a lot longer to come.

Hi Helen! It's nice to meet another Paolini fan. I hope that you will agree with me when I say that he is one of the best if not the best author of his time. Christopher Paolini is one of my heros, he has inspired me, and takes me to another world when ever I read the Inheritance Cycle. LOVE HIM!!!!

Did I just say 'THEY ARE GREAT'? That made me sound like Tony the Tiger. But honestly you guys, lay off okay because you wouldn't want anyone to say that about you. I am trying to write a book and it is hard. Every story will sound similar just like if you went to the hospital and said that you broke your arm, the doctor might think 'how many times have i heard this one'.
