Inheritance

It's been a while since I have written anything and I have one word why; Inheritance...started out as a trilogy and ended as a series of four books.  I bought this book in December.  It is now the end of February and I am finally finished with it.  The story is great.  It has dragons, elves, dwarves, so many of my favorite mythological creatures.  To give you a brief about me of the series, there is an evil king who has the last dragon.  He's hiding a dragon egg, egg gets stolen, boy finds egg, egg hatches, boy and dragon bond.  The end :)  Throughout the series, Eragon and his dragon Saphira are trying to put an end to the evil Galbatorix.  For the longest time we all though book three would be the end.  Then I finished book three and realized it wasn't the end and he was going to write more.  I'm glad this actually was the final book in the series.  Don't get me wrong, like I said the story is great and really enjoyable.  The books just took me so long to read.  I found myself getting distracted easily and with past books I actually stopped reading them to start reading something else.  While reading Inheritance, there were so many parts where I would ask, is this really necessary?  Paolini would spend an entire chapter on something he could have written in one page.  Do I really need fifteen pages on one practice fight between Arya and Eragon?  No!  The last 100 pages of this book were the hardest to get through.  the book is almost 900 pages long and by the end I was so done and wanted the book to be over.  I wasn't too happy with the ending.  I won't say why because I don't want to spoil it.  I'm just glad to be done.
