This series had so much potential and that was one of the reasons for why I started reading it this summer. The problem was that by the middle of book three all the excitement and potential was gone. I’m admitting that I never finished the books and probably never will.

Book 1, Eragon was the best of the three, with finding Saphira, fleeing for their lives and learning about dragon riders from Brom. The leader of the Varden was a good man, and his daughter had potential. Arya, the elves and the dwarves were exiting. There were some obvious flaws that ruined the book for me. The worst was how easy it was for Eragon to learn sword fighting and reading. These shortcuts felt like cheating and was the most annoying parts of book 1. But overall a good book with a plot that moved the story forward.

However, in book 2 when Eragon and Arya arrive in Du Weldenvarden where he starts training was the most outdrawn, boring part of the books so far. And the authors repetition of how quick he learned to read, why he shouldn't eat meat, and Eragons feelings for Arya gets old fast. Adding the teenage angst and this part takes up far too much space. If this is supposed to be Aragorn and Arwen from Tolkien’s world it is a poor imitation.

The most exicting part of book 2, and the only thing that kept me going, was Roran’s storyline. It was interesting and had a sense of purpose that Eragon’s story in this book lacked. Even the elves seem like egotistical and narrowminded beings whose only concern is themselves, with no interest for anyone or anything else.

And like book 1, we find a huge shortcut, where Eragon heals and become practically an elf overnight, something it takes decades for other riders to become. All this so he can be fighting fit again after becoming a cripple in book 1. Overall book 2 was boring and long, with no story that moved the plot forward other than Roran, and that was practically book 1 all over again but without a dragon.

This leads to book 3. I only read about halfway through and then I figured enough was enough. Nasuada has now become a leader who is willing to do anything for her cause, even condemn a child to a life of suffering and pain, without empathy or willingness to try differently. She reminds me of Alma Coin, President of the 13th district in Hunger Games, and we all know how that went. Even Arya’s reaction to when Eragon chose to save someone’s life rather than execute the person is off and frankly terrible, where she calls him weak and not fit to be a rider, simply because he could not kill an innocent man in cold blood. However after taking with Eragon several times she starts questioning herself, and this seems out of character for her. Is her conviction so weak that shortly after talking to Eragon she questions herself? Has she changed so much in two books? Or is this a way for the author to try and change their relationship? And the conversation that Eragon has with Nasuada and King Orrin after the incident is weird and stilted, and the topic itself is like the other topics that the author makes about Eragon’s crush on Arya, his distaste for meat, him learning to read and fight. They are unnecessary. We do not need to get spoon fed every little detail like this, we can remember things on our own (at this point I decided to give up).

Sometimes the author decides to use “old English” to perhaps make the dialogue more authentic. It doesn’t. By the end, the only person I still liked was Angela, she seems to be the only one with a brain of the entire bunch. Even Roran, hunting the beasts that kidnapped his darling Katharina, believes he can demand Nasuada to do what he wants, something he gets away with, and is another thing I have trouble understanding. I haven’t mentions Saphira simply because she is there but she doesn’t do much. She and Eragon think to each other, and she has her uses, which is mostly as a horse to get from A to B, but for a creature that is majestic and has ancient wisdom she rarely shows it. Mostly she flies around at night to stay under the radar and is frankly as disappointing as all the others.

There is much more I could say, but figured this was enough. To decide if I was going to continue I ended up goint to Wikipedia. Obviously, I decided not to because the author keeps taking these shortcuts all the way to the end, and frankly its disappointing. At this point I didn’t like the characters, the plot was not interesting anymore, much of the writing was bad or filled with shortcuts to probably fill the plot holes, and it wasn’t worth the time to finish the last one and a half books.

Some things like Arya and Eragon I could have figured out by continue to read, but when I add that to all the other problems the story contains I didn't think continuing reading it was worth it. The best thing to do is move on to something hopefully better and leave The Inheritance Cycle behind. ( )

First off Ive only read the first book and im reading the next one now. But what I can tell you, is that when you read the first chapter of the first book, you'll want to read the entire series. The plot is placed very well, and the battle scenes will give you the perfect visuals, making it feel like your right there holding a sword and a sheild. But one factor that really amazed me was that Christopher Paolini wrote this when he was a teenager. ( )

Band 1 liest sich sehr gut. Band 2 und 3 sind fürchterlich zu lesen. Vor allem die Zusammenfassung zu Beginn passt bei keinem der beiden Bücher. ( )

Christopher Paolini made an enormous step into the imaginary world with his first edition of his first series inheritance. In this world there once existed dragon riders. They were killed when one rider takes all his power to control the lands. There were endless battles of good vs evil. The people believe their only chance to survive lies in the hand of a rider. But the evil Galbatorix stole the last three dragon eggs hoping they will be hatched into his army. Everyone has lost hope, however, the strongest and the bravest stole an egg and raced away leaving the egg in the hands of the elves and Arya. But the evil caught up with them and Arya’s only hope was to use magic and send it away to someone who hopefully can help, someone who can save them all.
Eragon is an orphan boy living with his uncle and cousin on their farm. He has no memory of his father and his mother died when he was young. One day when he was hunting in the Spine, the most feared and dangerous land, a bright light nearly blinded him and left a blue rock in his possession. He knew of dragons, a man named Brom from the village spoke of them often. But little did Eragon know that the very rock that he found was actually a dragon’s egg. The egg hatched and now bound by fate the dragon Saphira and Eragon begin their amazing journey. With the help of Brom can they save their home, and the lives of everyone who depends on them?
