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.

Warning -- MAJOR Spoilers Below:

The Review below are my thoughts and analysis on Inheritance, written a few days after I finished it. Please Like or Dislike, and read my other reviews.

I've read and reread all 4 books in the Inheritance Cycle.

I read ERAGON and I loved it, at the time I thought it was very original, which in a way it is -- no one uses magic quite like CP. It was just the right length and I felt Paolini didn't need to write 3 sequels.

ELDEST was talky, tedious,and it droooned on for 200 pages too much. Roran was just a loser looking for his girlfriend and the sub-plot of the villagers migration from Carvahall was incredibly boring in parts. Eragon was also a vegetarian for part of the books 1000+ pages, incredibly.

BRISINGR was cool in parts. In fact, Brisingr may be the best in the series. I loved Oromis and Glaedr and Roran became an interesting character. Nar Garzhvog was cool too. Then we got bogged down with the dwarfs. I doubt I would have finished the book if it weren't for Eragon's visit to Du Weldenvarden and the forging of the sword Brisingr and his visit to Oromis and Glaedr. That was cool. I was just waiting (waiting = furiously reading) for the "brisingr at the end of the tunnel" if you will. (If that's a pun it's intended)

Now we come to INHERITANCE, the much-awaited, much-hyped, INHERITANCE. I borrowed the book from a friend who said it had battle after battle and read it and read it... and read it. Now that I'm done the book here are my honest thoughts. (Drum Roll).

(So, don't get me wrong, I'm an avid reader of CP and am well versed in fantasy.(Tolkien, Martin, Jacques, Jordan, Le Guin, Peake, Durham, Sanderson, Novik, Flanagan, and of course, Paolini))

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'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 ›

Imaginative story with a lot of word padding. The story line was good, but it kept getting off into inane details about situations not relevant to the storyline. I kept waiting for some steamy parts....never happened although the story pointed in that direction. The ending of the story was like a dying battery...no warning, just THE END, in the middle of nowhere. I was disappointed after struggling through the unimaginative parts. There were great parts to the story, but you had to pay by struggling through the boring parts.

It is easy to see where the story is ending. By far the worst of the series. IT's a shame to have waited for the moment it goes out and be deceived..

Everything I expected in the final book of the set. Would like to see a re-establishment of the Riders in a new setting, but I'm not the author. Well written and definitely for the afficinados.
