Customer Review

on 21 November 2011
You can draw many parallells from this series. It isn't wholly original. Nevertheless, it has still had a profound impact of modern literature and I for one was incredibly excited to get stuck in. I just finished it and it has left me with a sense of profound sadness and disappointment. The book is incredibly well thought out and plotted until the last 150 or so pages, where it decends into badly written rubbish that feels rushed and leaves so many questions unanswered it's unbelievable. The ending feels like a cop-out (and a slight lord of the rings rip off) that leaves me slightly enraged. I applaud Paolini for not doing the happily ever after thing, but there is no sense of closure here at all really. Suffice to say, a poor ending to a series and another book could easily be written (not a prequel or whatever he's stated already, another book of this series) that I'm sure fans would be grateful for and with all of the loose ends there are here, is direly needed.
