Brisingr: Book 3 (The Inheritance cycle) - Christopher Paolini (book review)

So finished this book before the weekend but it took me a while to  upload the review here

Story
Oaths sworn . . . Loyalties tested . . . Forces collide.

Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives after the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains. Now Eragon finds himself bound by promises he may not be able to keep. 

He must help rescue his cousin Roran's beloved from King Galbatorix's clutches. But he also owes his loyalty to the Varden, the elves and the dwarves, who are in desperate need of his talents and strength. 

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

My Thoughts
This book had potential with a great start where throw us right into the story. I enjoyed the book there and then it went from bad to worse.

The story is very long and very boring. I am used to read fantasy but this is one of the most boring books I have read. I dont mind when there is a lot of talking but in this book it has no deapth and no reason for it. It is a lot of filling in the book with very little substans.

I liked Nasurda in the second book but in this one I really hate her. She has gone from a strong female leader to a actling like a spoild egoistic brat. Im sorry but that is the feeling I get from her and how she acts in the book.

Roran was enjoyable in the second book and sure he has a lot of interesting things going on in this book but it feel like he is the hero and not Eragon. When reading this book it felt like the story is more about Roran and how much a hero he is and everything he does than Eragon and Saphira becasue they do mostly talk, think, walk, run and fly.

The end is interesting and I like when Eragon returned for his training with the elves and the entire ending off the book. THe book is over 700 pages but if you took away 500 of them you would have a pretty good book but as it is now, it is boring and dragged on way to long. To much talking and to much nothing going on with Eragon. Also when things happens it is things we have read before. talking, talking Fighting Murtag and Thors who almost was a bad replay of the fight in the second book and more talking and inner monoloug.

I hope the last book in the series is better than this was because I really enjoyed the first book, most of the second book and parts of this one but this was just to much of things not going on.
