Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
Eldest, book two
This book took me a while to read. I am not sure why, the story was fascinating, moving, entertaining, and well, a great story. I just can't/couldn't seem to get motivated to read. Same goes for writing the review. I just don't feel like it.
But it's such a good book. Eragon learns so much about himself, it's amazing. He stops whinnying and learns how to control his power. It's nice to learn about things in the first book that don't make sense, now everything adds up.
Allot of time passes in this book. I think about a year. Plus it switches between three different characters, that way you are all caught up in everyone's story until they are reunited. At first I didn't like it switching between characters, but mostly that's because when the author finished with one, he would do a cliffhanger at the end of the chapter and then move to another character. So you are just dying to know what on earth is happening to the first character. This happened everything, eventually got better. But it really made me want to skip through the book and just read one person story and then go back and read the other, so it was all one continuous story, not broken up.
I don't want to give anything away, but something happens to one character and then the ending totally surprises you and throws you off guard. It was an interesting ending. And I am glad I have the third book already.
