I tried to read Eldest, but I couldn't get through it. I found it too boring and Paolini's writing style was starting to get on my nerves. I did read the plot twist at the end; I'd seen it coming, but it was sort of exciting in any case.

what happens in it anyway?

i think Paolini's writing style is ok, not anything special, but i like the storylines, you dont expect the things that happen.
also, just finishes The High Lord by Truid Canavan.
everyone should read thie trilogy, its brilliant!

Woo just finished Eldest. It was quite good but nothing compared to Alisons (somehow I always compare books to alison's). OMG the shock was so....shocking It was a bit slow paced though but good all the same. Once again left with a cliffhannger ending... You know they're making a movie out of the books?
April 23rd, 2006, 01:50 PM #758
really? and i just received some gift cards for bookstores and im going to buy some books, but...suggestions please! i have no idea what to get after reading alison's books nothing seems good anymore

Um, you might like Exodus by Julie Bertagna if you don't mind it not being strictly fantasy. I think it's either a cross between fantasy and sci-fi or sci-fi. At first I thought it was 'okay', but when I like it more and more the more often I re-read it.

sorry, i bum her at the moment
nothing compared to alisons books (i always compare others to alisons as well ) but still good.

My favorite book is the forest wife which is a re-telling of robin hood from marians point of view it has everything in it magic, action, romance and it will defiently keep you hooked lol i could'nt put it down until i finished.
i also like trudi canavans stories but i prefered pristess of the white to the black magicians trilogoy and i kept thinking her name WAS trudi cadvan lol until my friend told me that i was wrong which she loves doing lol.
i have'nt heard of the eldest is it good? because im looking for a good book to read.

ya the first one is Eragon and the second is Eldest...it's about a kid and a dragon I think...
if you're looking for a good book read the His Dark Matters series by Phillip Pullman, it's so good and original and well written The characters are the best
