A number of years ago one of my children received Eragon as a gift and we ended up reading together. I am not a big fan of Fantasy (e.g. I couldn’t get going with Lord of the Rings) but I enjoyed reading Eragon. When Eldest (the second book) came out my family gave it to me for my birthday. I didn’t think Eldest was as good as Eragon but it was still a good story.
Brisingr came out a few months ago and I added my name to the waiting list at the library. I got an email a couple weeks ago that a copy was available for me so I stopped by and picked it up.
I haven’t had much time to read it yet – lots of other stuff going on but I am now about 100 pages into it and the story is keeping me engaged. Since I am invested in the series, I will finish the book for sure. It has been a while since I read Eldest so I had to get reacquainted with the story and this book does a nice job of providing a summary of the first two books before the story picks up.
