Eragon/Eldest/Brisingr (Inheritance Cycle)

I’m a big Eragon fan, having read the book eleven times. Christopher Paolini’s second book, Eldest, wasn’t quite as good but I still liked it. Book three in the Inheritance series is titled Brisingr. I was looking forward to the third book ever since Eldest came out. I wanted to be one of the first people to buy it. Unfortunately, I don’t live in New York so I had to wait for three hours after everyone over there already had their copies. I went to the release party at Borders in Scottsdale, Arizona. My friend Leanne and I were the only people who showed up. Which meant they didn’t bother having a trivia contest or anything for us like some other bookstores were doing. So there we were dressed in our “medieval” costumes, and we just walked around the store from 10 pm to midnight. My dad said we were as quiet as mice on the ride home, because we were both busy reading our Brisingr books. It took me about 14 hours to read all 748 pages. Brisingr was a lot more interesting than Eldest was, but not quite as exciting as Eragon. I caught one continuity error that I’m surprised the author didn’t even notice himself. In Eragon, Angela made a point of trying to prove that toads don’t exist. But in Brisingr, Angela matter-of-factly said “They’re as ugly as the warts on a toad.” Overall, Brisingr was a great book. Now I can’t wait for the fourth one to come out! ~By Peter O., age 18
