Not so very long ago, Eragon -- Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider -- was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. Long months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can. There will be no second chances. The Rider and his dragon have come further than anyone dared to hope. But can they topple the evil king and restore justice to Alagaesia? And if so, at what cost? This is the much-anticipated, astonishing conclusion to the worldwide bestselling Inheritance cycle. - Publisher.

In April 2007, I listened to an audio version of this book. It was the unabridged audio. I have a long commute, and since I was not a huge fan of Eragon, felt time was better spent listening to the book and reading other books I would like better.

Eldest was an improvement over Eragon, although, again, Paolini's plot and twists are transparent.

Spoilers. Loooove this story, its been a wonderful journey and Ive enjoyed all the books so much.
However, the ending is just bad.

Why the hell didnt he fly up there to aid her as soon as he had landed with the children, and to look properly for Blödgharn and the other elves?!?!? Its what he would have done, and did, all the previous times. It just didnt make any sense at all and just irritates the reader. And why would Nasuada suddenly bind all who has magic, its the same as Galbatorix did. Eragon should have made sure she never did that, it …

Okay, I did it. For the sake of completion more than any particular exitement. Actually the completionist drive started already around book two, when it started to become more and more apparent that Eragon is little more than Gary Stu. By the time we got to book four Eragon was so mighty that even Roran insinuated that he was god-like.

Speaking of Roran, for some reason he was attempted to be made an important character. Is it a bad sign when the reader winds up hoping that the important character dies? Unfortunate Roran survived. As did, unfortunately, Katrina. I fail to see what was so awesome about these two? WHY was Galby so interested in capturing Roran to begin with and then who died and made him general? No, seriously, exactly what qualifications did he have for command? He was a freaking FARMER! He had NO military training and for …
