I don’t know how many of you have read Christopher Paolini’s books, but I personally like them. Sometimes I think he gets a little long-winded (and I seriously wonder why his editor didn’t cut more material), but the story is great!! I read “Eragon” after it had been out for about a year and “Eldest” right after it’s release. I’m excited to get “Brisingr” tomorrow. I hope it is as good as I want it to be.
Anyone who follows this series probably already knows that this third book was originally supposed to be the last in the series. Not any more. Paolini decided he had too much story left to tell and he added a book. So…there’s still one more to come. I sincerely hope he doesn’t wait another three or more years to release the fourth book. I honestly think that because it’s been so long since the release of “Eldest” that some of the hype has died down and that people aren’t as interested. I may be wrong, but I just don’t know very many people (besides those I’ve give the books to) that have read this series. Maybe I just know the wrong people, though, because it’s been a New York Times Bestseller.
So everyone go to your local bookstore tomorrow (or Wal Mart, in my case) and pick up a copy of “Brisingr.” Hopefully it will meet expectations.
