I love reading, but being a mother of 2 I had no time. One day my son was reading these books (borrowed from school library) and he was so exited, he kept asking me to read it as well. I finally gave in and started reading it. I thought I do not care anymore for magic, dragons, dwarves and elves! But the fact is, I enjoyed reading these books so much, I was lost in the world of Eragon for several days! These books are worth every minute you spend ion them. Awesome!

This fantasy series is one of the best and most entertaining that I have read. If you enjoy The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and the Harry Potter stories, you won't be disappointed in Mr. Paolini's writing style and story-telling talents. I cannot wait until my grandchildren are old enough to appreciate this book series. The narration on the audio books is excellent as well. I wish Hollywood would dedicate the time and talent given Lord of the Rings to portray Mr. Paolini's Inheritance story. It could be awesome! And, if that can't happen, surely all the other readers and fans of Christopher Paolini are wondering, "Where is the rest of the story?"

I normally don't like to give my opinion of books, music or movies. I am a firm believer in "to each his own" when it comes to these things. I do
feel that this series is worth an opinion. I read the trilogy when it first came out and had difficulty with all the names of the people, places and
languages. I found myself flipping to the directory to find out how to pronounce names and seeing what different phrases meant. Then when I
would go back to my page of reading I was re-reading to incorporate what I had learned. By the time I ended the 3d book and found out that it
was going to take a Book 4 to complete the series I was very disappointed but determined to read it when it came out. The wait was longer
than expected and by the time it came out I had forgotten most of what I had read. Even with the synopsis I found that I was not sure about
everything so I went back and read the trilogy again. I'm glad that I did. If you enjoy fantasy this is a very good series to read. Still having
to go back and look up definitions and phrases (which I didn't always do because I eventually learned some - like "brisingr"- my favorite) I
found myself being a part of the story. I felt that I knew Eragon, Brom, Arya, Roran, and so many others. And I flew with Eragon on the
back of his blue dragon, Saphira, when he battled Murtagh, his half brother on his red dragon, Thorn. I was part of the Varden, and I was
part of the dwarves and elves. I learned to quiet my anxieties by adapting the lessons Eragon learned from Oromis, his teacher and last
free rider. I fought battles using "Brisingr", Eragon's powerful blue sword. I could go on forever with how this trilogy pulled me in the second
time around.

If you have enjoyed the ever popular Harry Potter series, or the Twilight series, and are looking for a new series to keep you reading, this is a winner.

For an author who was as young as he was when he first was published he did a remarkable job of creating this whole universe and characters in these books. These books are a bit long but are very easy to read and they are really an epic adventure to save the world from evil. You'll find the main character Eragon to be a loveable boy whose innocence and bravery are similar those of some of the great characters of novels past. You'll enjoy seeing him grow up and you'll love you'll the relationship he creates with his rare and special Dragon.

They are worth a read, and with the 4th and final book of the series set for publication and release now is a great time to start these incredible books.

This book is actually a combination of Eragon, Eldest, and Bisinger. This combimation is only $25, which $12 less than if you baught each book seperetly as ebooks. So don't listen to the idiot who dosen't read the book description.

It has been awhile since I've found a series that I've enjoyed this much. Sure there are similarities between this series and the Lord of The Rings, but the plot differs enough to keep you interested. I started Eragon in paperback while on vacation and then bought this set for my Kindle to get the next two books. I'm 1/2 way through the 4th book now, and enjoying it as I ride the trains to/from work.

I loved the writing and couldnt put it down. being a writer myself, I felt the books captured all that one may imagine is happening or going to happen if the story were true; and I found that I wished it to be so. Then I read the final book 4 and was very disappointed to see it end. Another reviewer whined on and on about the last 100 pages and why didnt the book end after the king was killed. however, the book tied up the loose ends of what those readers would wonder about. The author took that into consideration and was thoughtful about how the last book should end to please the readers. I myself would have rather it ended happily, with Arya and Eragon being together-but it didnt and its ok. This author intrigued my intellect and made my imagination sour to new levels. It takes alot of creative writing to keep me connected and what is interesting; as much as I read which is considerable; I found myself dreaming of the story line when I wasnt reading. To me that is proof of incredibly great writing. PJ
