I love those books!

Even though Eldest was really slow. x.o It was almost unbearable... Brisingr was a much better improvement.

Even though I know the only people who've read these books are Jessica and Tyann, I figured why not start this thread. I loved Brisingr and can't wait for the 4th one to come out. I was totally captivated by the opening of Brisingr with the Razac's hide-out!

Why do you think it was slow? I loved it!

Well, I think it's that there was a lot of "political" talk within the Varden. Though some of it was definitely need-to-know, a lot of it seemed like mere filler material, as if it was only to make the book longer. Then there was the traveling, which also seemed drawn out.
But I loved the epic ending! It was my favorite part. And I liked it when Saphira got drunk, and the parts with Roran battling in Carvahall and such.

Yes, the ending is something quite epic that I would love to see done RIGHT in a movie one day. I guess if I want things done right I'll just have to do them myself. *sigh*

Honestly I tried to read Eragon and just couldn't make it. It kinda seemed juvenile to me. But I guess I started the book knowing it was written by a teenager and I was trying to compare him to Dean Koontz

I'm actually re-reading Eragon at the moment, and compared to Eldest and Brisingr, Christopher's writing has come a LONG way. Like you said, it's rather juvenile. In the more recent books, though, it's a lot more detailed and in-depth.

Yes, I do agree he has come a long way. Which makes me more anxious for Book #4! But yeah, I'll always be a fan.

Same here. Smile

But even though Eragon does seem more "juvenile", I'm still enjoying the re-read. And I would definitely say his style is exceptionally better than some adult writers... *cough*Twilight.*shifty eyes*

As for Brisingr, I pretty much loved most of it. But it was a little sad at the end, with Oromis and Glaedr. Sad
