Eldest: The Stunning Follow-up (1 Viewer)

JK Rowling did not rip off more than Paolini. Sorry, but I've read both, and no. There is no book that I have ever read in which I recognized more elements from well known authors.

i found some scenes grotesque in desription, seens ment to be sad were hikarious.

Actually, he started "Eragon" at 15 and ended at 18, but that doesn't excuse how awfully cheesy "Eldest" was. I saw his inclusion of the bath, toothbrush, etc. as a sad shortcut to an end. I thought by the second book he would have found some selfesteem that would allow for him to branch out with his own ideas, but when I read his description of the elves, I just about gagged.

There are movies perfect for Sunday (Brat Pack movies, Lifetime movies, etc.) when you want mindless entertainment before work on Monday. Well, here's you're Sunday Book.
