Product Description

Review

"If you're not already a Paolini fan, now is the time to rush out and buy the three previous books, as this is the final instalment of the epic story which began with Eragon." Book Time "Inheritance is the final book of the wildly popular "Inheritance Cycle" by wunderkind Christopher Paolini. In this thrilling conclusion, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, take the fate of their world into their own hands. The evil king, Galbatorix, must be defeated and justice returned to the realm, but can the young dragonrider handle the pressure? That remains to be seen." The Christian Science Monitor "Featuring spectacular artwork by John Jude Palencar, this book brings the bestselling Inheritance cycle to a breathtaking conclusion." Middlesbrough Evening Gazette "It is an extremely compelling and well written book, set in the magical land of Alagaesia, and is one of the best fantasy books I have read. Christopher Paolini is a great author who has been able to conjure up a fantastical yet believable world.This is just as brilliant as all the other books in the series and ends spectacularly, but not in the way I expected..." Guardian "The Dragon has landed! Paolini's conclusion to his popular saga for young adults has been eagerly anticipated and at 880 pages, it's a whopper! Can Eragon the Dragon Rider restore peace to Alagaesia?" -- Kate Lazenby Western Morning News --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I like most, don't know what to say but for an ending to it all in that it is disapointing. There is to many unanswered questions, I hope he does continue the books and answer some things. The book is good but so much more was needed to end it all.

As an inveterate dragon fan, I thought that the four books of Christopher Paolini's Inheritance Cycle were great. I was engaged from the first paragraph and could barely put the books down until they were done, which meant a number of virtually sleepless nights. This young man has started out as an excellent writer, and I will be looking to see what he chooses to produce next.

I fell in love with the inheritance cycle with book 1 and 2, then Brisignr became book 3 of 4 when it should have been the last and I was disappointed with how it just dragged on. I expected Inheritance to be long and it took me a long time to be motivated enough to read it. I started it and finished within a week so it did entertain me. I had just read the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon so I was already in a mindset that I would be reading a long book with too many unsignificant details. That was exactly what Inheritance was. There were references to previous books that were not explained. For example, "That is what the Ra'zac told me"... I didnt re-read the books prior to reading this and so I didn't remember what they said and it wasnt explained! Frustrating! There are lots of stories that could of been edited out. The end should have happened after the crowning of the new queen, I dont know why the book went on for so long. I did wish we had found out who Angela was but I also like when books leave me wondering. So really I feel lukewarm about this book... I guess I am just glad the series is over.

After spending so much time on the series, I was very frustrated with how some of the stories and relationships were being handled. Brisingr was somewhat underwhelming, and with Christopher Paolini explaining that the story was too large for three books, I was really hesitant to read the fourth.

Finally I picked it up, and because the books were so few and far between, and so large, I didn't remember some of the storylines that he was awkwardly tying up in a nice little bow. Also he more often than once led astray with some random story, or another. It made me realize that he likes to write just to write. Some of the stories have no purpose to the over-all story, and thus it's led to this strange book that is meant as a means to tie up all the many loose ends caused by his wanderings from previous books.

What's worse is that he never stops with the overbearing, and boring descriptions. Stone walls, stone floors and castles, we get it. I was tempted to skip many paragraphs and even chapters.

He often stayed with characters I didn't care for, and the few relationships that did matter to me never came to a satisfying end.

The ending, as well, felt very forced and awkwardly placed. Strange character motivations led to the ending, as though Paolini really wanted it to end the way he wanted it to, no matter what the characters or stories had to say about it. Needless to say, as others have mentioned, the ending was disappointing. While I never really got into the series, I felt the ending was somewhat depressing and led me to write this review. It didn't have to be a happy ending, but at the very least some things could have been resolved that weren't.

I was given Book 1 Eragon as a gift when is first came out and I was captivated by the book. I thought it was well written and I couldn't wait until the series continued. The second book was good, the third was alright but I found it dragged on alot. My opinion of Inheritance was very similar to what a previous reviewer (Maggie) wrote. I was disappointed in the book. I found many chapters boring, especially when it came to describing battle details. There were a few chapters in the book, like when Nasuada was captured and her relationship with Murtaugh that kept me wanting more. But then of course, that was the end of their relationship. I found myself continuously skipping paragraphs, chapter after chapter, because nothing of interest was being said. And a few chapters before the end of the book you could pretty much guess the ending. And is was disappointing too.

I don't think this book was as well written as the first book at all. I definately would not read another book of his if/when he starts a new series.

I'll admit that after the drudgery ridden muckhole that was Brisingr I did not have high hopes for Inheritance. However, I wanted to see how the series ended so I picked it up and was pleasantly surprised. Paolini did not win me over quickly, however... Like Brisingr, the book is riddled with dead-end side plots that do little to nothing to advance the story. A perfect example is Eregon healing Horst's baby. This serves no purpose but to fill space and in an 850 page book this isn't needed. Paolini seems to suffer from literary diarrhea in that every inconsequential thought in his head comes out on the paper unbidden. The irony is that the things you really wish he expanded on he doesn't, but more on that later. Additionally ironic is the fact that the chapters starring Roran are some of the most entertaining, but argueably could have been greatly reduced. The fact that the book also takes over 100 pages to wind down after the climax is a little ridiculous. Despite Paolini's shortcomings, he has managed to pen a fitting end to his series. It is a good and satisfying climax, and the reader does feel a sense of completeness and closure when it comes to the main narrative. HOWEVER, I'm irritated by the fact that within all Paolini's loquacity he could not tell us who and what Angela is. He keeps it a mystery folks. I don't necessarily have a problem with mystery; Tolkien never explained who or what Tom Bombadil is, after all. However, Tolkien didn't spend four books dropping hints and strengthening the mystery of who he is either. If Paolini was attempting to leave Angela as a Bombadilesque mystery character he should have refrained from asking the question of, "who is she," so many times. Perhaps he intends to explore her origins in a future book, but who knows?Read more ›
