Inhertaince

This book is amazing yes it can be boring at time's but come on. He made the first book in high school imagine how young he was when he wrote this he hasn't hit his peek yet and he is making another book. Yes, there's drinking,smoking, and death a lot of death but those thing make this book. having mature themes in a tween to teen book is different and amazing. I know it seems like over do but i am reading this for my 8th time and i am still finding little secrets. They ending leaves us wanting more that is why i can't wait for the 5th book.

Characters

The characters in Inheritance have been criticized, Eragon specifically. The problem is while outwardly Eragon can be seen as perfect, he is not a perfect character. He is forced into a role he doesn't want, and struggles with the flaws he recognized in himself. The conclusion is great, and has a lot of meaning, but character is where the story shines. You get to watch the characters grow, even if they get better you can still see the same characters you fell in love with. It's an amazing journey to go through and watching these characters succeed will help a child face their own life.

Helpful book

Throughout the book there are large pile of bodies, thousands of dead people and powerful killing machines that single handedly destroy buildings. The protagonist becomes intoxicated at one point. There is a reference to mating between dragons. Some coarse language, and reference to revenge is also used. At the end of the book there is a nuclear-like explosion, created by a character committing suicide. Fairness and equity are also explained in the book as the people are negotiating peace treaties. It is highly recommended that you do keep an dictioanry on hand as some of the language used is advanced, before your child reads this book i would recommend that you help them read a small dictionary, as it may help them. As un-fun of an task as that is it will also help your child in their school work. This book will help your child to read between the lines, detect sarcasm, and determine what words mean by how they are used.

Disappointing, but well written.

While literally and structurely better written than the previous three, it seems Paolini hasn't gotten the hold of an satisfying ending just yet. He also seems to be a bit still too fond of his Thesaurus for my comfort. Still, this was a relatively entertaining yarn, even if it did not live up to expectations.

dissappointing

Coarse language is used a bit throughout the book. Eragon and Arya get drink some intoxicating beverage and get drunk together. Lots of violence and gore.
