Eldest by Christopher Paolini(133 ratings)

I, personally, am a fan of Paolini's trilogy and I am anticipating the fourth installment. But Eldest brings new meaning to Peter Griffin's best book review, "The book can also be, a hat" It opens with excitement, but pretty much after that, it's six hundred pages of dirt on a country road up until the climactic conclussion.

Eldest did not improve on Eragon, which was perhaps enjoyable, but technically an average book. I expected Paolini to improve with age, but his writing did not. The book is bloated and desperately in need of editing. The story could have been greatly condensed and it would have been more enjoyable if something more had happened.

Even better than the first book in the series. Paolini has really developed as a writer and has added additional layers of complexity to this compelling novel.
