I honestly kinda wish I'd given Eragon two stars, simply so I could give this book a lower rating, because it is SERIOUSLY worse than the first one. HOW!? If we're gonna excuse the bad writing in the first one with Paolini being young - what are we gonna excuse him with this time? Okay, Paolini was only 22 when this was released, which isn't that old tbh, but still ... the whole boy genious thing is way behind him.
This was book Empire Strikes Back and I honestly didn't see it coming. I knew the first one was Star Wars, I just didn't know it was gonna keep going. But no, most of this book Luke Eragon spends his time training with Yoda some wise elf dude but he has to cut his training short after seeing in a vision that his friends are in danger, so he goes off to rescue them and ends up in a fight with a superior foe who tells him that his father is actually Darth Vader Morzan and then it ends with him promising Leia Roran that they will go rescue his one true love Han Solo Katrina who has been kidnapped by the evil forces.
What should make the book better is that we have three main characters now, instead of just Eragon, but sadly it doesn't make it better because two out of three are honestly just bad people. Eragon and Roran kill people without mercy to get what they want and I might be wrong but I think the narrative is on their side, saying that they're justified in what they're doing. That's fucked up. Maybe it'll have a different pay-off later off, but I don't know.
Not gonna lie, at this point I'm mostly rooting for Galbatorix. Or I would, if his name wasn't so dumb. I guess who I'm actually rooting for is Murtagh, whose name is slightly less dumb. But he's a tortured bad boy with a dragon and presumably lots of angst, and who's not into that? I can change him, I know I can. Or I could join him and kill Eragon and Saphira, that might be even more satisfying.
And on top of everything else the elves are fucking furries. FURRIES. ELVES. I can't believe that fucking shit, why would you make me read that with my own two eyes, Paolini? Why? WhY???? Just because of that I'm gonna include this horrible pic of you in my review:
Put on that oufit, go sit in a corner AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU'VE DONE.
Am I gonna read the rest of the books? Yes. But I'm gonna need a break and read about Mount Everest for a bit.
Rambling on about dwarf and elf culture as opposed to getting to some real progress in Eragon's adventures, getting through the third book and its generic twists is a chore. At least the book is still well-detailed enough to keep the interest-factor fairly strong.
In Eldest, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, travel to the elven land of Du Weldenvarden, where he undergoes extensive training on his journey to become a Rider. The first part of the book is a bit overwhelming with all the different languages and odd names, but once you get past that, the story gets energizing. While we follow Eragon's adventures with the elves, we also find out his cousin, Roran has his own problems back in Carvahall fighting the Ra'zac. Surprisingly, Roran morphs from a farmer into a notorious fighter, leading the entire village into war with the dreaded Gallbatorix. Eragon is finally maturing a little, although I'm still waiting for that he's-a-badass-warrior moment. Saphira could also be more assertive. Hopefully, that's something we'll see in the coming books as the story continues.

Nothing wrong with a good thick serving of swords 'n' sorcery, but it needs a hero. In the hands of a writer like George R.R. Martin, Lois McMaster Bujold, Barbara Hambly, or J. K. Rowling, the central characters of fantasy are persons worth knowing: smart, flawed, moral, doomed to love the world more than the world loves back. It's fun that they're kings and queens and wizards, but we read the books because Miles Vorkosigan or Harry Potter are in them, the kind of people we'd like to know and be. Unfortunately, Eragon just doesn't measure up to the standard; he's a Frankenstein video-game hero, clanking with magic armor, charms, and weapons, but long on seams and short that essential spark of life.
It's clear that Paolini has drive and talent, and "Eldest" is, for the most part, competently constructed and written. The problem, however, is that anyone committed to reading a 2,000-page epic deserves more than competence and tropes that have been used countless times before.

Ho comprato il libro solo perché era in questa edizione Fabbri molto caruccia e super economica. Il terzo e il quarto volume non sono mai stati pubblicati in questa edizione e quindi non li ho letti.
