Finished Eldest [1/09/2009]

After having fun relaxing with Eragon, this sequel was a huge disappointment. Many plot points were very predictable. The story dragged on way too long. The tension between Eragon and Arya was annoying. The Roran chapters were completely unbearable for me and I would have skipped them altogether had I known there wouldn't be an important plot development in them. Pretty much the only thing I liked in the entire book was the description of Ellesméra, that's not good considering how long the book is. Now I'm not sure if I'll read Brisingr or not.
