Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
A friend was asking me today if I finally read "Inheritance", the last book in the "Inheritance Cycle" by Christopher Paolini, and what I thought about it. I remembered I never wrote anything about it...
So yes, I read Inheritance some months ago and actually like it quite a bit too. As I wrote here before, the trilogy was not exactly among my favourites. But the 4th instalment really did save the whole thing. Even though the very end left me somewhat unsatisfied, but the 4th book was able to give a new depth and direction to the cycle.
I truly enjoyed reading the 4th book, and now I'm hoping that Christopher Paolini will, as he said, at some point go back to Alagaesia and show us a bit more about the future of the main characters. I don't want to give spoilers here since a couple of friends are going to read the book soon, but lets just say that I would like Eragon to reconsider his choice of residence location eventually. ;)
