It began with Eragon It ends with InheritanceNot so very long ago Eragon Shadeslayer Dragon Rider was nothing than a poor farm boy and his dragon Saphira only a blue stone in the forest Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shouldersLong months of tra. Why does everything have to be so hard Eragon wondered Because said Saphira everyone wants to eat but no one wants to be eaten This book makes my heart happyEragon has graduated from isolated farmboy to savior of the kingdom Along the way he's faced trials tribulations and terror He's fought the shade the Ra'zac Murtagh and All that's left is to defeat King Galbatorix Easier said than doneThe king has held his long reign through than sheer luck He's stockpiled unimaginable power power so great that despite all of the training in the world Eragon and Sapphira can barely hold a candle to the evil kingBut fight they must for the alternative is far terrifying than either of them are willing to comprehend I am not who I was he whispered gripping the edges of the column but I know who I amAnd I won't give up GAH My heart is just so happy For context I first read this series in middle school and absolutely adored itNow that I'm 25 I've decided to go for a reread all the while crossing my fingers that I still love it am I the only one who gets scared by rereads What if the book doesn't hold to my memories What if younger me had bad tasteAnd oh thank goodness I still love this series The first one will always be my favorite but all in all I'm really pleased by the way this series turned out Angela and the werecats absolutely riveted What little we know of Angela's origins is expanded upon in this novelthough instead of filling in the gaps I feel like it's creating whole new ones I'm so curious about her life this girl deserves her own book I love at the hints of Nasuada and Murtagh that pairing completely blindsided me at first but it developed so slowly and naturally that I am just crossing my fingers that there will be a later book that wraps up that story lineAnd honestly I wasby the lack of Eragon and Arya Logically I totally understand why the author did that for the time being Eragon IS of age but he's still SO much younger than herand yet just one sentence or two to hint at a future romance would have just cinched this story for meOverall loved it the first time through and every time I read it I fall a little bit in love Audiobook CommentsReally enjoyed this audio Murtagh's accent was a cool drink of water on a hot day Sapphira's accent was a congested Yoda gargling nails YouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

characters Inheritance

InheritanceIning and battle have brought victories and hope but they have also brought heartbreaking loss And still the real battle lies ahead they must confront Galbatorix When they do they will have to be strong enough to defeat him And if they cannot no one can There will be no. I am desperately trying to think of one concise word which sums up the sheer misery of the last five and a half days in which I had to slog my painful way through this 849 page monstrosity The horrors of Inheritance are so vast and so many that I am unable to; instead I find my mind reliving the pain the awefulness and the absolute boredom of this book So maybe I should give up trying to express my feelings in one word since it apparently cannot effectively be done and just relate to you the attrocities which face any Reader brave enough or dumb enough depending on what led to such an unforunate circumstance I was being paid to pick Inheritance up One thing I will say to my fellow critics especially those being hired to read this book you should demand hazard paymentWhatever small hopes I might have expressed in my review of Brisingr they were all crushed Character development Ha Plot twists Dream on Deepening of character relationships If you even wanted that then you are already way too much into this series and will probably stone me for this review Character deaths My mind is drawing a blank Paolini promised surprises and unexpectedness of all kinds; the only thing that surprised me was that I managed to finish this fourth and blessedly last book in this torturous four volume collection as uickly as I did Every single thing that happens is predictable no psychics needed right down to the endBut don't despair there are some surprises Let's start with the worst of it shall we Now I have often commented about the wrongness that prevades these books in descriptions word choice and events In Eldest we were presented with a bathing scene where our oh so lovable hero shamelessly eyes his now naked teacher who is male by the way from head to toe and the Author finds it necessary to inform us helpless Readers that Oromis has absolutely no hair on any of his person I didn't think things could get much worse than that and it doesn't but my goodness does it come close There is a certain chapter in Inheritance which I have lovingly titled The Chest Hair Chapter Ladies if you were picturing Roran as a buff young man with a waxed chest think again because our beloved Author makes it uite clear in this section and others that Mr Muscleman is as wooly as a baboonDescriptions only get worse In the same chapter Roran is attacked by an assassin and they fall into a heap at one point trapped under a now collapsed tent Rather than expressing this in somesuch words as Roran and the assassin fell atop each other in a tangle of limbs he instead chooses the phrase and I uote directly Roran continued to hold him as the life drained out of him their embrace as intimate as any lovers' I am sorry but unless you are trying to creep your Readers out an Author does not use such wrong imagery because the Reader's mind is going to immediately jump to unwanted thoughts I can't tell you how much I suirmed in my chair and made faces; I even got a bad taste in my mouth and shrieked out loud in horrorHowever among all of the chaos of just plain badly written battle scenes where Paolini attempts to be like Michael Cadnum and throws in gore which doesn't succeed; there is a proper way to write gory scenes and he didn't do it looonngggg nightly character routines we get to read about Eragon's regular spelling sessions and side travels that shouldn't take as much time as they do the Reader is finally presented with a character Enter Mr Fingernails This part by far outweighed even The Chest Hair Chapter when it came to over the top unnecessary and ultimately vomit enducing descriptions though the number of flared nostrils nearly did me in Page 414 416 is entirely devoted to describing in microscopic detail the clean and cultivated yes cultivated fingernails of a character whose name you never even find out And I hate to say it but those fingernails were the only thing in that entire book which had even a smidgen of personality By the end of page 416 I knew those fingernails so well that I was inclined to give them names and the description is so in your face thorough that whenever the owner of the nails walked through the door I no longer pictured a man but a giant fingernail with googly eyesAnd if that isn't scary enough Inheritance abounds with monsters fit for your worst nightmares Imagine if you are brave enough being attacked by a giant snail No joke Eragon is attacked by a giant snail like the sort you find in your garden which proves once and for all that Eragon really is a vegetable If the Author inserted these snails for comic relief it is a joke which falls flat and wastes time It is plain stupid and adds to the length of an already lengthy novel But apparently Paolini has some fear of insects because before the giant snails he introduces us to maggots called again I am not joking burrow grubs with obscene little mouths I'm sorry but there simply is nothing threatening about maggots Spiders Yes Or even beetles because there are actual existing beetles which are poisonous But maggotsThe rest of the book is just disappointing even for an anti fan like myself Anyone who was anticipating an even halfway decent stand off between Galbatorix and Eragon will be really disappointed Not surprisingly the oh so evil King sets up a one on one duel between Eragon and Darth Vader I mean Murtagh Also not surprising Murtagh has a change of heart and does something that helps Eragon kill Galbatorix I thought I would never say this but for once I would have rather had a cliche hero kills villain death as opposed to how Galbatorix really dies I am sorry if I an spoiling the book for anyone but presumebly if you're reading this you either don't care or you've already read the book Rather than a sword through the heart or a fireball to the head Eragon and his accomanying Power Jellybeans kindly show Galbatorix the error in his ways from when he stole a candycane from his baby sister at Christmas to his tempting people to join his side with their favorite cookies In the words of the book Eragon makes him understand Galbatorix is so overcome with all the awefulness he's committed that he spontaneously combusts What do I need to add to this What's wrong with this picture people The villain the evilest person in the book is killed with sad memoriesThat brings up another point that plagued me throughout the book and that is Galbatorix's supposed badness When a country is controlled by a tyrant there are signs of it soldiers in cities secret police crushing taxes executions people dragged from their homes at night furtive glances over one's shoulder starving peasants closed borders just to name a few If I walked through Alagaesia and a random citizen came up to me and said Hey our king is a tyrant I would be flummoxed because there seems to be no real evidence of an evil monarch Every once in a while the Author kind of mentions a few high taxes just in passing but there has never been any real indication of a controlling king Heck Eragon and Brom traveled the entire country in the first book with no Imperial soldiers stopping or attacking them No bands of knights or whatever pillaging Nothing And I failed to see his massive evilness in Inheritance when he had occasion to talk with other characters He in fact seems no evil than the average evil person He sits in hi

This is my ABRIDGED VERSION of my essayreview about Inheritance by Christopher Paolini Read the really long version hereSo let's break format and start with what I likedThis 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 and figured that objectively I'm afraid it still deserves a bottom of the barrel rating Sorry fans First off Paolini corrected a number of things that he's had trouble with in previous volumes He introduced horses that actually get tired He introduced characters who dislike the protagonists and don't automatically get written as evil or get punished for it He acknowledged that the elf Arya would be a better fighter than plucky farm boy Eragon owing to over a century of practice He wrote a couple of conversations that felt like conversations There was no Super Special explanation for why Cousin Roran was such a badass Nobody got brought back to life in a cheesy touching resurrection view spoilerAnd Eragon didn't get married and live happily ever after or turn out to be related to Princess Leia hide spoiler
