Eldest, not the best
on 5 July 2010
Continuing from Eragon, Paolini tells the story of Eragons quest to the elves and his lessons there, whilst also following his cousin as he takes his village out of the empire for safety.
Great ending battle, yet felt a little lame until then. Christopher Paolini has used the elves as a media to portray his very strong beliefs and has ruined alot of the books message, especially for younger people. And it comes out very strongly and unopposed.
Perhaps you need to get it to keep up with the story, but besides that it isn't the best book he has written.
Story 3/5 (Eragons cousin has the best story here)
Value for money 4/5
