1.0 out of 5 stars Please, sir, I've had enough, 21 Jun. 2015
His prose style made me gag. More than once.

Avoid at all costs.

I wish I could unread the 9% I managed to choke my way through.

2.0 out of 5 stars Passable plot, interesting magic, but..., 20 Jun. 2014
Kip is stupendously annoying. Fat, clumsy and LOVES to cry. Appears to be incontinent, likes to wet himself and will most likely move on to anal leakage in the second book. As if that isn't bad enough, he somehow randomly, literally over a chapter, became an obnoxious and smartass know-it-all who comes up with infuriating one-liners and witty retorts (whilst still crying for no reason and wetting himself). Oh, I almost forgot, he also likes to drown himself, either in an inch of water, a rivulet, a small stream, a lake, you name it. He'll probably try the toilet next, if they even have them in his universe. Oh, and of course, he panics at the sight of rats, screams shrilly and, naturally, wets himself as a result. The list of his annoying traits is by no means exhaustive, and while each of them might, on their own, be er endearing, their combination is beyond revolting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid-from a newly graduated linguist, 14 Jun. 2014
Firstly, I would advise you all to avoid this topic if possible. It is, frankly, preposterous and contrived on every level. However, if you insist on pursuing it, this book is far too verbose to be of much use, especially if you buy it the night before the exam. Jack Sidnell's Conversation Analysis: An Introduction is a much more condensed, readable and accessible text (though no less ridiculous in content), and, while I wouldn't recommend it per se, it is still a more practical (and cheaper) alternative to this monstrously useless tome.

If any of you consider yourself possessed of good sense and logic, avoid this book, avoid his other book, avoid this topic. CA considers itself similar to the natural sciences, but they have no real concept of the word 'proof' and use it in the loosest possible manner. To anyone who is even remotely versed in the real sciences, this topic is a complete and utter joke. Actually, Linguistics as a whole is a bit of a joke, and if you are embarking on a degree in it, I'd suggest you change it to something more useful. Poetry, perhaps.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful., 9 Jan. 2008
Amazon has just notified me that the third in the Inheritance trilogy is coming out and I was prompted to write this review. That in itself is strange as I've rated both Eragon and Eldest 1 star and they had no reason to believe that I would want this one, but anyway, back to review.

The Inheritance trilogy has been, so far, terrible. The storyline is unoriginal and the narrative dreary. The only character that isn't totally despicable is the Merecat, and that's mainly due to the fact that he doesn't appear all that often. Eragon, urgh how the name makes me cringe, is possibly the most detestable character *ever* to appear in print. Yes, he even surpasses Bill-E in the Demonata series, but thankfully, Darren Shan had the sense to kill him off, better late than never, eh? If Paolini decides to emulate Darren (ahaha copying?! What a ridiculous notion!), I would suggest he makes Eragon's death slow, painful and, above all, funny. It would make the however many years of waiting all worth it. Anywho, despite all I've said, I still intend to get the last book, if only to see just how awful it is. Don't get me wrong, I *want* it to be good, but it most probably won't be... but who knows, after a 5 year break, he might've improved, albeit ever so slightly.
