    One thought on “Eragon & Eldest (Inheritance, #1-2)”

    1. I feel as though this series is one whereby only the generation it was brought into enjoyed it.I will admit these are not my favourite dragon stories, but as I’ve always had a love for dragon stories I’m one of those people who enjoyed the books somewhat. That being said, the first book was probably the only one that I really enjoyed.As a whole if you love a good dragon story they’re worth a read if you’re willing to go in with a mind free of negative reviews otherwise you’ll be pickin [...]

    2. I loved it. I have already started Brisinger and the 4th book will be headed my way as soon as it is released Tuesday. Had to add this one the the favorites shelf and hopefully the other two will find their way there as well.

    3. I had a really hard time with how bad the writing was in the first novel - Ben and I were reading this aloud while driving, and I kept interrupting with exclamations of dismay. (Really, how many times can something be described as 'liquid silver'? And how many chapters do you need to end with someone being hit on the back of the heading and blacking out?)Given the lack of resolution at the end of the first book, however, and given that I had the second right there in my hands, I continued on. Pa [...]

    4. Eragon:I found this treasure during my junior year of high school, recommended by a fellow classmate in science class. I picked it up,intrigued by the idea of an epic adventure, and was not disappointed in the least. I remember diving into its pages on the bus after school, completely lost in the world Paolini created. Having never been a real fan of the LOTR book series (though i loved the movies) I was wary of any novel of the same genre, but this book left me enraptured and eagerly anticipati [...]

    5. The books Eragon and Eldest were . . . Interesting to say the least, though I did enjoy the storyline. The books just seemed a bit, well, plagiarized. When I read the story all I could think of is Star Wars. I mean a boy who believes his parents to be dead is taken under the wing of an old mysterious man. The old mysterious man just so happens to be skilled in many different areas and teaches the boy everything he knows. Doesn’t that sound familiar? Just wait, it gets better. The boys dead dad [...]

    6. Excellent books (don't let the movie delude you, the book is so much better). I did like the second, Eldest, every better than the first. However, if you are like me and don't like waiting for the next in a series, the third book isn't scheduled to come out until next September and then who knows when the fourth and supposedly final book will be release. Science fiction well written.

    7. Finished the Eragon section 02-06-10 Can't wait to find out what happens next!!! Very upset with myself for letting the size of the 2 books together in one volume keep me from reading this for so long. So far, could be one of my favorite!!!Started reading Eldest 12-109-11

    8. A little long and wordy, but I liked them. I guess my only complaint is that at times you can really tell they were written by a teenager, but still I was impressed. There is no way I would have been able to write books like these when I was seventeen.

    9. I started reading Eragon with my kids and got totally sucked into the story. It is full of imagination and plot- unlike the movie. Can't wait to read the 3rd one together.

    10. My favourite books so far, though I know I have much more to read. I can't wait for the third one, and I've already read these both twice, but I like Eragon quite a lot more.

    11. I loved this book. Paolini created an entire world full of mythical beings who have actual character unlike other books. He has given a new perspective to dragons and has made a plot line that is easy to follow and can quickly excite you. I can understand why this might not be some people's preferred type of reading but if your willing to see this series to the end please do. The characters develop at lot more throughout the last two books and you get to see a whole new side of things. And if yo [...]

    12. I LOVE "Eragon" and "Eldest"! So exciting to read these books and Eldest, especially, is an unrelenting page-turner. I stayed up way too late last night because I had to finish the book.*SPOILER-ALERT*WOW! I knew that Murtagh wasn't dead, but I really thought that he would resist Galbatorix and that Eragon would save him. I just liked Murtagh so much, I wouldn't let myself think that he would really succumb. It's funny that because of listening to "Eragon" as an audiobook that I now read Murtagh [...]

    13. Alright, so, years ago, Eragon was my top favorite book. Not unusual, since I had-still have- a deep love for dragons, and whether it was 'Eragon' or 'Dragon Rider' (by Cornelia Funke) I lugged those books around with me and reread my favorite bits. Not so long ago, I got my hands on Eldest. Alright. I was still in total love with Eragon, so Eldest wasn't bad at all. I was, of course, furious at the ending (spoilers, so I won't say why. ;) ). It was when I got half way through Brisingr I just co [...]

    14. These two books are about a guy named Eragon. Eragon is a young man who lived in a small town in medieval times. Eragon grew up as an orphan. Winter was coming and since his family, he lived with, were farmers they didn't have much money, so every fall he would have to go hunt deer. Eventually, he got really skilled with bows. One fall he was tracking some deer when all of a sudden out of nowhere a blast of fire scared him, making him duck for cover and he found a "stone" which turned out to be [...]

    15. I put off reading this for a long time because I just wasn't interested in an amateurish attempt at making a dragon fantasy interesting. In spite of the good reviews some of my family have given me, I resisted. Then one day I was in the mood and I was completely wrong about what I thought the book was going to be! I really enjoyed--a lot more than I expected to. Good character development and good story line with what I thought were realistic accomplishments and feelings of an adolescent boy bei [...]

    16. alright, here goes my first review ever, bear with me if it's terrible! These books, Eragon and Eldest, are decent books for being written by a 15 year old, but they do have flaws. As a die hard Lord of the Rings fan, this series seems to take a lot from LOTR. I actually have a theory that the Eragon series takes place many years after the LOTR trilogy, but we won't get into the details of that now. The reading is easy, and flows nicely, Paolini does a good job of keeping the reader involved. Th [...]

    17. cannot believe it has taken me two years to get around to reading the second book in the Inheritance Cycle. The book begins with Eragon and Saphria traveling to Ellesmera to complete their dragon rider training amongst the elves. But while they try to fit decades of training in to mere weeks and months, we learn about Eragon 's cousin Roran as he attempts to protect the mountain community from the Empire. While I found the book enjoyable to read but is pales in comparison to other fantasy novels [...]

    18. This book starts out with a boy named Eragon. When he found an egg which hatch into a Dragon, he was pulled into an adventure that change his life instantly. While in it, he had met some people such as Brom a so called merchant and Murtagh a mysterious warrrior. Each one has a past realted to him. With the help of hsi dragan Saphira bonded to me in a certain way, he travels to Vaden territory to take shelter against the evil king of an empire. He late discovered his true abilities in a battle to [...]

    19. WOAH! Eragon rocked my socks off. The most thrilling book I've ever read! Each time I opened the cover I felt like I was zapped into Alagëasia. Totally realistic, on an emotional level anyway, considering this is fantasy, and completely well written from the cover to cover. Each chapter just got better and better and I can still remember the story and replay how I pictured it in my head like a movie. (So what if I'm a geek?) I got really far in Eldest, but never actually finished it. Some peopl [...]

    20. I started reading this because I won it at the Breaking Dawn release party and it happened to be upstairs while I was searching for something to read. Someone told me this book (these books) wasn't very well written so I hadn't been going out of my way Anyway, it was definitely clunky in the beginning, felt a little thesaurusy, if you know what I mean, and a few of the ideas in the story got off to a rocky beginning (all the sudden something the main character could do something that really didn [...]

    21. If asked to place this book, i would say that it is a happy medium between the seriousness of the Lord of the Rings and the playfulness of the earlier Harry Potter books. It was not until i read the books a second time that I found out that Paolini wrote Eragon when he was 15 and had achieved bestseller status by the time he was 19--that only adds to the books, I think. The plots of both of these books move along well, with plenty of actioncharacter development. While i did not see the film, i'v [...]

    22. I loved Eragon from the start. It flowed and had a great pace to it. It was fun and different from anything I'd read in a while. I really liked it so I was excited to read Eldest when it came out. Eldest was a disappointment. It was almost as if the author had one idea when he started (was supposed to be part of a trilogy) and then realized he could sell more books by stretching things out to four books and kind of patched the second book together sloppily. It was not as fast-paced as Eragon and [...]

    23. There is a big difference between books written *for* teenagers and books written *by* teenagers. Sure, it's better than anything I could have written at 15 or even now. But it's still derivative. I only read both books becuase I had the box set. I've clearly read all the same hobbit/dragon/elf books as the Kid Author and seen the same movies. Harry Potter at least uses common, recognizable themes in clever ways. This kid barely changes the names. And a fifteen year old writing about girls? Oh, [...]

    24. I have read Eragon, and seen the movie twice. I posted the reviews separately for each volume of the double edition. My long-ago opinion was 5*. I will continue, not yet knowing if I have read Brisinger. Plot seems easy to predict, more for the overkill of clues than my memory, I think.The first and the second half of the second were the most exciting action. Eragon fades away when the focus shifts to the Eldest. I like Paolini's style already; maturity may improve his work.The bonus on the doub [...]

    25. I bought this book in a second hand book stall in Legian, Bali. I chosed this book because there was not so many choice. I was not so sure I could finished this book so fast because it is so thick!But amazingly I read this book like eating potatoes chips! whenever I started to read this book I could not stop until my husband showed that his annoyed with it. Because I left him alone hahahaanyway it is a maginifique story of a different world and I gave my two thumbs up for the writer to have such [...]

    26. In this book you follow the life of a poor farm boy named Eragon. He lives with his uncle since his mother had to leave. He help on the farm and one day while in the woods hunting he finds a strange looking rock, that's actually and egg, and tries to sell it. No one buys it because of where it was found. Then one day the Ra-zacks came into the village and they're after Eragon. He then decides to leave and run to kill the king, otherwise his "uncle". I recommend this book to anyone who will enjoy [...]
