I had these great plans that I would have the final book in the Inheritance Cycle finished today and I would write a wondrous review on it.
But then there was work. And unpacking.
And packing to go on a trip.
And just, generally not enough time in the day to read a good book without the rest of the real world getting in the way.
I am over halfway done with it though, and I am enjoying it so far. I have a few complaints about it, but those are mainly about how there are plot devices happening that seem to come out of no where, left field, and shoved in there because “crap…I forgot about that loose end that I needed to tie up!”
I feel that a lot of that might be resolved if I sat down and reread the other three books though. It’s been so long since I have read Eragon that I honestly don’t remember much about it aside from “boy gets dragon, chaos ensues”. And elves.
So I’ll totally take the blame on any failings that the book has right now until I sit my ass down and reread the others. because otherwise that’s just not fair to the book.
I hope that Paolini writes quicker now though, so that I don’t need to worry about forgetting everything in the 10 years between book one and the last one.
