Before I begin this, I'd like to say that it's a rant. For those of you who don't like ranting- Don't read it. I actually happened to love this book, but I'm just a tad mad at the ending at the moment.
Dear Christopher Paolini,
How. Could. You.
(view spoiler)[ You wrote four MONSOROUS TOMES of creative genuis, and you couldn't even SPARE A SENTENCE for Eragon and Arya! I don't care if you're the author, and you have your little creative steaks of whimsy, but it's just damn logical that they shou ...more
Book 4 of the Inheritance Cycle
By Christopher Paolini
A Review by Eric Allen
After his early success, Christopher Paolini set to the final book of his trilogy. Unfortunately, for everyone involved, the outline he'd written for the third book wasn't going to fit in a single volume. He decided to split it in two. I have to question why, but I'll get into that later in the review. Now we've finally come to the end with the fourth and final book of the series. Was it a good ending? Well, to ...more
I can't wait for this book to come out, but a tiny, miniscule part of me doesn't want it to come out because if it is not absolutly flipping fantastic, then I may have to kill myself. This final book needs to be better than the previous books, which is not an easy feat. Plus all the lose ends need to be tied up. I for one, am interested to see how Christopher Paolini pulls it all together.
Two things I am hoping for in Inheritance:
1. We will see some action from Galbatorix. And ...more
So let's break format and start with what I liked.
This was my favorite of the Inheritance series. It was enough less of a chore to read than Brisingr that I very nearly considered rating this two stars out of five. But then I realized I was thinking that way based on hating it less rather than liking it more, and figured that objectively I'm afraid it still deserves a bottom ...more
This is a truly epic series. If you love heroic quests with amazing dragons, interesting magic systems, and little romance, this is definitely one to check out!
Fixed the rating thing, so never mind the May update.
May 2011 Update
I do apologize for being one of those idiots who gives a book 5 stars before they've even read it. I accidentally clicked the "rate" button when I added this book, and the only way to remove the rating is to remove the book.
March 2011 Update
Okay, so now there's a release date set for November 8 this year. I really hope this won't get changed or moved around!!! I've been waiting three years for this book.
I have so many predictions about what's going to happen, I couldn't list them all here if I wanted to. But the main ones are:
- Eragon ends up with Arya... I don't really like her but it would be kinda weird if Christopher Paolini threw in a new girl he falls in love with, in the last book.
- Murtagh is going to end up being good! He's going to change his name and get free from Galbatorix ...more
Obviously, this book is the end of the Inheritance cycle. You have no idea how profoundly sad that makes me. I love this series, and some of my all-time favorite book moments occur during it. I shall never forget you . . .
Despite, how long it is, you don't really notice. Riordan paced the book perfectly, so it never feels like some new, completely unfeasible stretch is being made to end t ...more
If you would like a chapter-by-chapter commentary/sarcastic review of Eragon and Inheritance, check out "distinctvagueness" on youtube...he pretty hilarious :)
Well, I have to say I was extremely disappointed with this conclusion. It was by far TOO perfect and way too tidy. It was over complicated with wards, spells, ways to kill dragons, ways characters avoided death, perfect weapons, too perfect characters, anti-climatic battle with the king, and references to other bo ...more
Let's just say, I might have been very, very tired when I wrote it, and write another review. Perhaps a more cohesive, comprehensive one. Onward!
This book was split into two because the author found he was writing too much to compress into one book. Dude, that's because there were too many battles and unnecessary bullshit going on here. They could have easily been one novel. I'm going to summarize Inheritance with one word: bloated. There is a whole chap ...more
Coming to its end, this series was overall amazing and made me feel so cozy and at home that I won't ever be able to part with it.
I cannot begin to describe my love for the protagonist, Eragon, who is by far my favorite male lead character. Paolini created a character and managed to make us grasp Eragon's entity. He is not just a fictional character to me, he is more, he is real and if you try to contradict me I will hurt you. This series had so many aspects to the things ...more
Title fail. Brisingr was hard enough, this is suicide. Only the hardcore fans (like me) will even bother to learn how to pronounce the title. "Empire" would have been a great title.
"Inheritance" is a GREAT title :) First of all, it's a pronounceable, English word, and second, it will actually help us remember what the proper name of the series is! lol And the cover is just Gorgeous! :)
Looking forward to reading it :)
Overall, compare these four books (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr and Inheritance) in Inheritance Cycle series the last two books were lot better than the first two books. Eragon and Eldest were weakness compare to Brisingr and Inheritance.
I have no idea why this didn't occur to me earlier, but why is the series called the Inheritance Cycle? Does that mean the series is going to pull a Dark tower by stephen king, and end at the beginning of the first novel? I don't think I can take that. I can take any other predicted or non predicted twist. I can take Eragon leaving Alagaesia, I can take Saphira dying and Gallbatorix winning the war and burning the whole world down. But if this series ends up being an actual god-forsa ...more
All his die-hard 5th grade fans will have grown up and hate reading by the time this is released.
It was quite disappointing actually. IT played out exactly how everyone thought.After all the emphasis on no eldunaris, it was kinda annoying when it was all they could find to save themselves! I was hopping for something like a super kickass spell or an awesome sword that could shoot lightning through shields or...never mind, but in short I was hopping for something dramatic. Everyone knew Eragon would kill galbie. Great surprise! Eragon went along with exactly as Angela's pro ...more
★★: Pérdida de tiempo/dinero.
Menos mal que me gusta el género, si no esto habría sido un suicidio.
Dejemos una premisa sentada:
Paolini, sos una mierda para las relaciones románticas literarias, así que si vas a ser tan mierda, directamente no pongás ni siquiera una insinuación de romance, ¿entendido? *aparecen todos los miembros de la mafia por detrás de mis hombros* ¿ENTENDIDO?*
Con eso dicho, prosigo:
•Tiene figuras femeninas fuertes, lo ...more
The good stuff:
1. An admirable end to the
2. The epic battle at Uru'baen was skillfully done and kept me at the edge of my seat.
3. Loved both Murtagh's and Nasuada's storyline.
4. Paolini's writing has picked up immensely; there was never a dull moment in the book - everybody was always on the move.
5. I'm glad the focus was more on Eragon and Saphira in the book. It was getting ...more
I'm noticing a trend that I'm frustrated with the length of most of the books I'm reading. Maybe it's just me, or maybe authors are going completely nuts, editors aren't doing thei ...more
What's Shur'tugal mean, anyway? I don't remember... well, anything from the previous tales. Except for a bunch of elves... and dragon-hearts... and it's all gone fuzzy from there.
Hmm. What say Knopf is taking so long to release this because Paolini is actually trying to make this good?
So, anyone want to lend me a copy? Then again, I ...more
MY PREDICTIONS are very much based on the prophecy from the werecat, and a bit from the Menoa Tree.
VAULT OF SOULS;
I'll wager that this is where all the Elundari are being kept by Galbatorix, and Eragon will use their strength to defeat him. OR, dragon magic will change them into real dragons again. The latter is a bit wild, I'll admit.
Eragon will storm Galbatorix's hideout twice possibly. Once to get the last egg, and another as the finale piece ...more
