Description

Don’t miss the latest book from the author of Eragon, The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm: Tales from Alagaësia, coming December 31, 2018! Perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings, the New York Times best-selling Inheritance Cycle about the dragon rider Eragon has sold over 35 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation.

Oaths sworn...loyalties tested...forces collide. 

Following the colossal battle against the Empire’s warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

First is Eragon’s oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran’s beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix’s clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too.

The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength - as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices - choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

Saphira sounds like Grover after puberty

This book is an absolute gem, a must-read for anyone who might enjoy the genre. It has everything, adventure, magic, romance, humor, suspense, surprise -- all of the elements that make this the kind of story you want to read over and over again. The narration is very good, except for one vital flaw. The interpretation of one of the lead characters, Saphira the dragon, is way off base, and it ruins the story. I thought I'd start this audio book from the end and work my way back since I've read the book many times, and thought this would be another way to enjoy it. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Read, read, read the book.

Brisingr

My favorite character in this book has to be the dragon, Saphira. She is portrayed as so caring for Eragon. The bond is immeasurable. I have enjoyed following the two of them through all of their adventures. I look forward to the next book series to see what happens.

truly enjoyable

I could have just read this book as I did with the first two, but decided to simply listen to it for a chance. I don't regret a minute of it. I couldn't wait to find a minute of peace to go sit and visit Alagaesia. The narrator did a wonderful job in pronouning the word I couldn't read at all. Of course Saphira's voice was not as feminine as I would have like it, but in overall, the narrator did a great job. I'm glad that the story will continue through another book that Christopher is creating. There are still questions to be answer and a war to finish. Christopher has a fantastic mind. I'm sure that his 4th book will be just as good as his last 3 ones.

Excellent as always

Great detail, great story lines. Can't wait for the next part. Plus I love Gerard Doyle's animation of the characters. His voice is the best ever!

Excellent story, stunningly bad writing

This is a high fantasy epic of the likes of "Lord of the Rings" or "Sword of Truth," and follows the same mythical path that all such stories do, so if you don't like the genre, you probably won't be interested in this.

Supposedly the writer is a prodigy who wrote much of this by 19, and it shows. The writing is atrocious. Even my teenage daughter laughed at some of his cliches. Worse, he chooses completely inappropriate verbs and adjectives. Things "slip" when they would more likely "rip," for instance. It is really a distraction throughout, although sometimes completely without discernible pattern he does slip into a skilled narrative tone for a scene or two.

That's the negative. On the other hand, the writer's imagination and thorough creation of his universe is worth slogging through the prose. His world of dragons and warriors and thieves and magic and prophecy is vivid and imaginative, and at times does reach the level of Tolkein--though never in writing ability. His characters are surprisingly insightful at times, given the writer's age, although at times they are simplistic.

And the story--the journey--is well created. The world is revealed slowly, and with great skill, and mysterious seeds are planted early that take time to bloom. Characters are introduced and left to mature and reappear later. Minor incidents come back to have major impacts. This is where the author is far beyond his years--in the telling of the story. This is where the book becomes worthwhile, despite the prose and the derivative storyline.

So, overall, if you like high fantasy of the Tolkein variety, you'll like, and maybe even love this one. It is safe for the kids, mostly, and can keep a family entertained on a long drive. This is some of the best of the high fantasy genre. That's how I rated it. If you don't like that genre, you may not like this. Buy it for the story, not for the writing.

Milking the long hull...

I literally counted down the days until this book came out. The first two had me on the edge of my seat for the 3rd. I have to say I finished this with much disappointment. Chapter after chapter of dwarf politics drug out this book an extra few hundred pages and even if that’s not exactly true it sure felt like it. I just felt like this book didn't follow the direction of excitement like the first two did. More than anything I am very frustrated that it will probably take another year or two for a forth book. Don't get me wrong Christopher is brilliant I just wish he would finish this story and write spin off books on the untold portions, sort of like Orson Scott Card.

Get on with it!

Ok, so I'm actually really impressed with with the author. Sure it's obviously that he borrowed a little too much from LOTR and Star Wars but I can forgive that for a good story, which it is.

That being said. The major problem with this series is that instead of going into detail about the things that are very important to the story, the author seems to talk about everything forever just to prove that he can make this place real for you.

The major events of the book are great but they are interrupted by very long, seemingly unimportant plot lines that make the story drag on. In this book's case, it was forced into two books when it clearly should have been one. This is the first book I would ever say that I think I would have enjoyed an abridged version more. However, it is worth the read if you can take it.

Not a Bad Listen

I don't mind long books- in fact I generally enjoy them. I agree with some people that this book is one battle after another and that Eragon still seems a bit childish. However, I still like the book and think that if you've read the other two- this one should be read as well. I'm just wishing Mr. Paolini would hurry up and come out with the last book. I enjoy the narrator and think that this is a good- but not great book. I also appreciate the fact that I can listen to it with my young children around and not have to worry about vulgarity and bad language.

Potential never realized

Emotionally flat, with the occasional anthill or small valley, this book leaves you with nothing. Unable to capitalize on his earlier success and grow, this installment by the author lacks the depth and range that make a good premise into a great novel.

Instead it is a tiresome plodding series of events that do not flow, and characters whose motivations lack the ring of authenticity. His world has elements that are interesting in and of themselves. It is a place of magic, and mystical creatures, love, war and strife, things that almost always make for a good escape.

That is why it got three stars.

That he took those elements and made a hash of it is disappointing to say the least. If you are interested in those sorts of worlds, Goodkind, R. Jordan (RIP), and George R.R. Martin are genuine masters, even if they have the occasional flaw.

If you read the first two novels of this series, you could take this one or leave it without gaining or missing out.

After Elder, I was surprised how good this one is.

I had figured out all the revolutions in Elder about half way through the book so I wasn't expecting much from Brisingr. I was pleasantly surprised that this book was so good and am on pins and needles for the conclusion in the next book. Great listen or read!

Wunderschönes Buch

Brisingr ist der 3. Band der "Triologie" von "Eragon". Allerdings ist es nicht das letzte Buch, sondern es wird noch eine Fortsetzung geben. Das Audiobuch ist sehr gut gelungen. Der Autor Paolini hat sich bei seinem dritten Buch im Vergleich zu den ersten beiden Bänden nochmals gesteigert. Die in den ersten Bänden eher blassen Beschreibungen von Alagaesia steigern sich im Dritten Band enorm. Die Beschreibungen erwachen förmlich zum Leben. Das liegt aber nicht unwesentlich auch am hervorragenden Vorleser, der sich für jeden Charakter eine eigene Stimme und Sprechweise überlegt hat. Der leichte schottische Akzent gibt dem Hörbuch einen liebenswerten Beigeschmack. Unbedingt empfehlenswert!!

einfach toll gelesen

Paolini's Bücher sind eine tolle Lektüre, aber die Hörbücher sind ebenfalls ein Schatz der besonderen Art. Nachdem anfangs die Interpretation der Drachenstimme (knarzig, rauh) für mich sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig war, so komme ich doch nach dem mittlerweile dritten Hörbuch gut damit klar. Die unterschiedlichen Dialekte von Menschen und Zwergen machen die Personen interessanter, einzig die "salbungsvolle" Interpretation der Elfen ist nicht so ganz mein Ding, aber naja.Spannend und mitreissend gesprochen.

Schöne story, sehr vorhersehbar.

Die Eragon-Saga ist phantasievoll und immerhin so gut geschrieben, dass man immer weiterhören will. Allerdings gibt es viel zu viele Andeutungen und Vorausschauen. Das ist eigentlich schade, weil es Spannung nimmt. Trotzdem noch drei Sterne, weil das Anhören immerhin so viel Spaß macht, dass man weiterhört, um zu erfahren, ob die Handlung sich tatsächlich wie erwartet entwickelt - was sie meistens tut.
