    1. "Is it better than Eragon??"Lots of people have asked me if I liked Eldest better or thought it was a better book. Yes and no. The writing was more coherent and sounded less inexperienced, and some of the perspective changes made it easier to read. But if a writer doesn't get better on his second book or as he gets older, he's kind of a jerk, eh? But Chris was quite a bit more aware this time that he had an audience, that his book's arrival was being anticipated with bitten nails, whining, and d [...]

    2. I hate Eragon, but I was intrigued to see if Paolini has improved, so I borrowed this book and attempted to read it.I hate Eragon. I hate Eldest even more.If Eragon is bad, it at least had a semblance of a traditional plot - the introduction, the buildup, the climax, and the teaser for the next chapter of the journey. Eldest started off with a flat summary, then it went straight into a continuation from the previous story, and around 600 pages of exposition full of step-by-step miniscule details [...]

    3. Do Elves have pubic hair? Are Orc marriages performed with ceremonies? What is the life cycle of the giant birds the Nazgul ride? If questions like these have haunted you ever since you delved into the world of fantasy, look no further for your answers!Eldest continues the saga started in Eragon by sending our plucky hero into the land of the Elves in order to complete his training as a Rider. There, we learn absolutely everything you (n)ever wanted to know about the Elves (think of it as though [...]

    4. Slow for the first half but really picked up and actually got very very good! All the twists and turns introduced have boggled my mind time to move onto book three

    5. And the adventure continueeees!!!Now let me tell you (gosh, I feel like a mother or father here about to teach their children :)): if you are an YA lover or a high fantasy lover you will like this one a lot. I know there's been a lot of talk regarding what should or shouldn't be included in the YA genre, but I think this fits there. Granted, in my opinion, this genre is made of two classes: the old YA and the new YA. And even if some may get upset, the old YA is much much much better than this n [...]

    6. Ok thank you for continuing on from my Eragon review. Now remember step one from the last review yea ok we'll call it Step 5: Go to the store and buy EldestOk now follow these steps. Step 6: I hope you've learned from your previous mistakes and set nonperishable snack foods withing reach as to keep reading while eating. Now get an empty 2 littter bottle don't worryyou'll figure it out. Finally get a drink that is pretty good a room temperature or if you just really like cold drinks be sure to ge [...]

    7. 4.5 stars!Truly, I have nothing bad to say about this book. I liked every moment, was engaged, kept finding myself excited about the story. It did many fantasy elements well. I enjoyed the training portions, the shocking revelations, the magic system, seeing young love through a male protagonist's POV, and the fact that injury and disability in heroes during wartime was something that was represented. And DRAGONS. The dragon/rider relationship is my favorite part of this series.Even though I enj [...]

    9. To say that Paolini's follow-up to Eragon is a disappointment is something like saying that George Lucas' Howard the Duck isn't quite as spectacular a film as Star Wars. It took me NINE MONTHS to force my way through this drivel-saturated sequel, and turning each page required an act of will.WARNING: Spoilers below.If Eragon is Tolkien fanfiction, Eldest reads like the world's longest Mary Sue story. In between soapboxing about religion and veganism, Eragon proves that you CAN have a character w [...]

    10. I was very pleasantly surprised - Eldest laughs in the face of the so-called sophomore-slump curse.While I liked Eragon enough to give it five stars despite the weird feeling that it was a mediation between Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, it was kind of slim in several places, character- and plot-wise. Not so in Eldest. Finally, some real meat to the relationships between characters, the government of Alagaesia, and the drive toward battle. My empathy was tested every time I was irritated ov [...]

    11. FINALLY!It's time to return to the world of Alagaësia with my fellow Dragon-riders, Her Purpleness and Her Pinkyness!No disputes about Saphy tho! She's all mine! Let's fly to the Elves, y'all!

    12. This second installment in the Inheritance Cycle was extremely surprising for me. I find it hard to be surprised by most book endings, and this one had a twist that I was not looking for, so when it jumped out at me, I was almost knocked out of my chair with shock. This book goes much deeper into the world of Alagaesia, its myths and history, and the characters become much more complex. I felt for Eragon as his attempts at romance are spurned, and watched carefully as his bond with Saphira deepe [...]

    13. Eldest, the second book in the inheritance trilogy by Christopher Paolini is disappointing largely because it's a long book in which very little happens. The narrative through most of the book switches back and forth between Eragon and Roran. Eragon is traveling across Alagaesia and eventually begins training as a dragon rider. As a result we get long swaths of exposition explaining every detail of Alagaesia and the philosophy of dragon riders. It's common in fat fantasies like the inheritance t [...]

    14. Και ολοκληρώνοντας αυτό το βιβλίο έφτασα στα μισά της διαδρομής, 2 βιβλία τέλος, μένουν άλλα δύο.Και τι διαδρομή, γονατιστός πάω, λες και πάω προσκύνημα στην Παναγιά της Τήνου. Πολλή ανηφόρα. . . Τέλειωσα έτσι το πρώτο μισό, το γνωστό, τώρα μένει το άλλο μισό, το άγνωστο, το αχαρ [...]

    15. Remember what I said about the first book in this series? How it shows promise, is an interesting take, blah blah? Yeah, forget it all. This was one of the biggest disappointments I've ever read. All of the promise and interest in the first story disappeared into a foul-smelling vapor within the first 2 chapters. The author has obviously forgotten the character parameters he set for his own characters, namely Eragon. This story takes place at most 6-9 months after the end of the first book, in w [...]

    16. Alright. Eragon was a great book. I mean GREAT. There was suspense, action, and a possible romance.But this book just completely screwed everything up with the boring dialogue and the action less pages.Yes, this is a very unpopular opinion, so no hate, ok?? :)So as a person who was obsessed with this series at the time, I fortunately finished the book. Unfortunately, what exactly was this book about??1.Eragon was a hopeless, romantic ditz that kept running after Arya. Like, dude, nobody wants to [...]

    17. This is crap. Paolini ditched almost all of Eragon's potential, spending his time in the land of elves who are smarter, more gorgeous, wiser, stronger, faster, longer-lived, better at magic, more hygenic, more tasteful, better at art, music, metalworking, and just generally better in every way than those poor, lowly humans. And. . .every man jack and woman girl of them is an atheist vegetarian! Yes, Paolini takes some clumsy but pervasive swipes against religion, demonstrating that he really doe [...]

    18. This full review can be viewed on my blog along with others at: shesgoingbookcrazyBuddy read with Maks Understanding begets empathy and compassion, even for the meanest beggar in the meanest city of Alagaësia.The battle against Galbatorix' army in the dwarvan mountain realm was only the cusp of the war looming ahead. Now that Eragon and Saphira's presence is becoming known across Alagaësia, enemies arise at every turn.Strategy, politics, and duty threaten to delay Eragon's much needed journe [...]

    19. The writings of Eragon are the lamentations of readersNOTE: I listened to this on audiobook, so espect to find the names and places probably hideously misspelled. I would make an effort to correct the spelling if I cared.Eragon and the Vardan have defeated Galbatorix’s forces at Farthen Dur. But Eragon’s journey has only begun. He must now travel to Ellesmera to learn the ways of the dragon riders from the Elves. Meanwhile, his cousin, Roran, must defend his home of Carvahall from the Raz’ [...]

    20. “Eldest Book Review” The book Eldest by Christopher Paolini is a book about a dragon and his rider. The two, intertwined by the magic of thought, journey through the land to Ellemera to study the arts of magic as he prepares to face off against the belligerent tyrant Galbatorix. The book had many interesting twists and turns. Eragon, the rider, has always thought to be the last rider, excluding the king and his evil riders, know as the foresworn. But suddenly, Ormoris, an Elvin rider appears [...]

    21. I was half expecting Eldest to be an improvement for Paolini, but what I expect never seems to be what I get. Eldest was lengthy; too lengthy. What were easily 500 pages of adjective oriented action would have been fine at 30 pages tops. It seems as if Paolini is still aiming his novels towards the pre-teen to teen audience, something that paid off for him after making Eragon. It's a shame that strategy worked again. Besides the one or two exciting twists and turns, the plot did not impress. The [...]

    22. Took me a while to notice that I haven't added this book yet. And overall it wasn't that bad. There were some major twists in it, especially towards the end. And I did love when Eragon was with the elves, though some chapters were too long and boring. Also, I didn't really like the chapters with Eragon's cousin. He's not my favourite character of the books and he kind of irritates me, especially when he blamed Eragon for everything. So, I didn't like his chapters. Plus, there weren't many battle [...]

    23. I really enjoyed Roran rising up to become his own man and learn all the lessons of being a dragon rider along with Eragon. The level of detail in this story is astounding and it takes a very special kind of writer to not only come up with a story like this but to be able to keep all the different plots moving along smoothly without leaving loose threads that savvy readers could unravel. Bravo!

    24. I thought the first half is a bit boring but then second half is a lot better than first half.I agree with one review in this book "Will appeal to legions of readers who have been captivated by the Lord of the Rings trilogy." School Library Journal.Roran is one of my favourite characters.

    25. I try not to read sequels as they come out. With the exception of every Harry Potter book (yes, I attended three of the midnight release parties) and Breaking Dawn (which I bought two weeks after it was released), I wait until an entire trilogy, quartet or series are released in paperback before starting the first one. Like the Faerie Wars or the Derkholm books. I mean, I’m a Tamora Pierce junkie, but I'm still waiting to start the Terrier series.(Note on paperback v. hardback – it’s a pre [...]

    26. I liked this one better than Eragon. The plot really thickened! I started to get bored about halfway through, until Eragon was "changed" and Roran was in Teirm is where it got interesting. The last half of the book was better than the first. The first half felt so dark and hopeless, then finally you started to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Great plot twists, and very believable fantasy!

    27. Reviewed on 26/07/2015Actual Rating: 3.5 StarsJust a heads up to those who are really impatient; do not, I repeat, DO NOT ever read this book, or should I say this particular series. This apparent book has bloody 679 pages, and for those of you who hate books which are so painfully slow you could just rip them into shreds, please, run far away and never come back. Don’t even think about hesitating; just run for your life.While reading Eldest, I had the most awe-inspiring major conflict/ dilemm [...]

    28. May good fortune rule over youPeace live in your heartAnd the stars watch over you." This book was quite amazing. The plot was good, the story made me gasped with amazement. Beautifully written. Although I found some sentences were really descriptive and drag through pages and pages. I still don't like the elves somehow. They are too perfect.But Roran's story was quite amazing. And the title of the book - "Eldest" was really meaningful.Better than the first book.
