AT LAST!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, my, gosh. You don't know how long I've been waiting for this. Years. Bunches of aching months. All the while, needing and waiting and hoping for the next book.

And now, I have it, and I'm reading it, and I'm loving it, and I'm already over halfway through! I honestly don't know how I'm going to handle it being over... I mean, I've been waiting so long and then it's going to be gone like that! I just can't take it!
How did I find it? Where did I get it? Did I by or rent it?
Well, we were walking through Costco (rather quickly, as the store was closing) when we passed the book section. I almost walked by it when I saw that beautiful golden dragon and the word Brisingr on a book, and I grabbed it. Then I ran up to by parents, started jumping up and down, but the moment I asked if we could get it, Mom lifted up her hand, and within it was the very same book. I smiled and put my copy back. Mom really knows me.

I own the entire Inheritance series, not including the next one to come. And before Brisingr came out, I had read the entire series five times plus. Personally, I believe these books are better than Harry Potter. Then again, I don't really like the whole Harry Potter series as much as most do.
How is the book so far?
Well, the first ten-ish pages are not very enjoyable, well written, but I didn't like it, then the rest of the chapter was just grand, full of action (the destruction of most of the Ra'zac, FINALLY) and a bit of romance between Katrina and Roran. I almost cried, but then again, it's easy to make me do so.

After Eragon killed the other Ra'zac, the book got a little weird. It just didn't make much sense, especially the part where Eragon decides to eat meat again. He goes from being utterly repulsed by it, to eating it frequently in the story... it was just weird and I think that if Mr. Paolini intended him to eat meat, he shouldn't have through the whole vegetarian phase. I also didn't like the Sloan part too much, but it wasn't really bad.

After that happens, things go wonderfully and the book gets great. Action, adventure, battles... It really is a fabulous book and I can barely put it down long enough to make this post.
As for my predictions for the future... I think Murtagh might be a shade, as he has improved strength, and there was another hint to that fact from this weird guy who had some sort of vision. I'm probably wrong (because why would Thorn serve a shade?) but it would make me feel better if he was, and it would make more sense as to how he could act that way. I never liked him being a bad guy. Murtagh was one of my favorite characters... not too far from Eragon. I just couldn't bare it, and it broke my heart in the ending of the second book, Eldest. I'm still hoping for him to go back to his good old humorous and fun and kind self. Hear that Christopher (the author, for those of you who don't know)? Bring back Murtagh(please)!

Also, I'm positive that Oromis is going to die. I know Oromis is going to die. I'm preparing myself, and if he doesn't die, I will be very, very surprised, and rather happy, if he does die, I will be prepared (then again, I was 'prepared' for Dumbledore to die in the Harry Potter books, but when he did I cried like a baby... it was just so sad!).

So, overall, what do I think of the book so far? It's grand, entertaining, wonderful, adventurous, humorous... I just love it. I love, love, love it! Gosh, I really don't know what I'm going to do when it's over... *sigh*
Okay... I guess that's all I have to say--besides to tell you to run the nearest store possible and BUY THIS BOOK!
