Not as good as the first one, the story is a bit stretched out, but still a good read.
Available on request.

Vielen Dank Shevek, dafür lässt man sich doch gern von der Briefträgerin aus den Federn klingeln :o) Freu mich schon riesig drauf!

Du schreist laut "hier", wenn du was bei meinen AVLs findest, ja?- bzw. wenn du Bare Bones -schonmal als Vorschuss?- haben magst, brauche ich deine Adresse :o)


Okay, here's my review:

Being lost in the world of the Dragonriders and seriously annoyed by the very open ending of Eragon, I just had to get Eldest and this is even better - this is definitely on my favourites list!

While just 200 pages into the book, I posted in a thread on book talk "Does your current book have a great quote?" - this is the quote:
"I have a new name for pain[ ...] The Obliterator. Because when you're in pain, nothing else can exist. Not thought. Not emotion. Only the drive to escape the pain. When it's strong enough, the Obliterator strips us of everything that makes us who we are, until we're reduced to creatures less than animals, creatures with a single desire: escape."

And I admit, some bits moved me to tears - the end of the celebration with the dragon blessing was just awesome!

So, this is a great fantasy epic up there with Lord of the rings and the Potters, but it has so much...wisdom? insight?, too, especially astonishing with such a young author, and I'll definitely recommend it!

Again, a horribly cliffhangy ending - but I hear rumours that the third book will be out late this year....let's hope :O)

Journal Entry 5 by Sunjo from Leipzig, Sachsen Germany on Tuesday, February 26, 2008
I really like this book - it was exciting.
At first it was a little bit difficult for me to concentrate on the changes between the stories of Roran and Eragon. Often such a change was a good excuse for a reading-break. But then I became addicted and had to read the book 'til the end nearly without any breaks, I slept not enough and so on... But I really wanted to know how the story ends.
The problem is: it was no real ending, because there will be the third book of inheritance - I'm looking forward to read it

Ich habe bisher nur den ersten Band (auf deutsch) gelesen - mal sehen, ob ich die Zeit finde für den zweiten Band. Ich könnte mir aber vorstellen, dass mein älterer Sohn, der gerne Fantasy, auch auf Englisch liest, an dem Buch Interesse hat - andernfalls schicke ich es wieder auf die Reise
