Sep 19, 2012 Kay rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
this was basically just a collection of information already in the books. there were some random things that werent in the books, but overall, it wasnt enough to go out and buy it because im sure its on the internet somewhere. this is repetitive. i bought it because i thought it was going to be new information, but it just isnt.
the other thing is that when the guy wrote it, inheritance hadnt come out yet. so theres alot of characters/ plot lines missing. like it says the rock of kuthian was jus

Hmmm.... A lot of information in this one. I thought it might help jog my memory as I want to get back into the series again, but I'm more confused now!

I think it would have helped if they would have also referenced the book too. Instead of just explaining what something was, included the book it was in and maybe a page number where readers could go back and read it in context. But perhaps that is just me being picky.

The Guide to Alagaesia is much cooler! Although die-hard fans will like this

Good book!! It was based on the inheritance Cycle. It had lots of useful information. Of course, most of the info was already in the books, but when you read 4 books with 600-850 pages, you forget the little, important stuff. This book had all the characters, places, and objects listed and explained about. Plus, lots of the pages had facts about the books, about the author and behind the writing of his books. I would really recommend this book to anyone who's a big fan of the Inheritance Cycle, ...more

A useful reference to the world of Eragon, the details of which may get a little fuzzy after thousands of pages. This almanac serves mostly as a perfunctory memory-jogger rather than a means of answering questions about the series. There are no especially profound insights or added knowledge to reward the close reader. It is also slightly out-of-date since it doesn't include entries for the fourth volume, Inheritance.

I only read this when I had a few extra moments here and there. Having only read Eragon, and not really liking that so much, it was a difficult read. I had to put it down on the 11th. I'll try to pick it back up later. Picked it up on March 8, 2013.

Seems complete as far as I can tell. Hope the fans of the Earon books like this. I know I'm not that into it.

I bought this because I'm officially obsessed with Inheritance, not because I needed it--I already knew 90% of the stuff in it by heart anyway. And yeah, it should have been written once the series was finished, and thus, complete.

Not bad, though, and being blue gives it a boost.

A very informative guide to the Inheritance Cycle!

I read it mostly because I haven't read the Inheritance Cycle in a while, and I wanted to go through it because of that.

I need to refresh my memory before reading Inheritance. This series is really complicated...
