This is my review of Book Review: Eldest (Inheritance, #2) by Christopher Paolini.
The second book was just as good as the first. Actually, there were parts of Eldest I liked even better. I’m not sure how Christopher Paolini prepared to write this book, but I find it interesting that there are many subtle truths weaved throughout the story’s very fabric. If unaware, they may be missed. The lessons that Eragon learns, and the ways he prepares for them are similar to what is taught in practices such as meditation, martial arts, and the like. Aside from Eragon’s training, the political movements laced throughout the story are also interesting.
