** spoiler alert **
SPOILER ALERT Again, same thing as Eragon. Paolini almost, almost comes into his own, until the very end, when the story finally collapses around Paolini. He makes the bad guy, Murtagh, Eragon's brother. Brothers fighting against each other. "You were my brother Anakin! I loved you!" Is that not all too familiar? I wonder if Murtagh will finally defeat Galbatorix by throwing him into a blue pit filled with electricity. Heck, everything else is parodied off of something else. I'll still read the Third book though, just to give it a rating and see what else Paoloini copies of off. And the bad thing is Paoloini has copyrighted everything he's written numerous times, over and over. He's literally fortified his books with copyrights, so that no one can do to him what he's done to other people.
