Sloan betrayal not exactly a surprise for me.. Murtagh being Eragon's elder brother? There was rumour long before Eldest got out so it's not exactly shocking either. About Glaedr... poor Saphira if she trully alone in her species :D. Arya just not ready for relationship--quite understandable. Ajihad? only natural when a powerful leader died.. although it was so sudden. Murtagh got Thorn was shocking, though. But the most shocking for me was the blessing turned out to be a cursed, poor Eragon!

ya what fathskie said.
also the bloodoath celebration--i TOTALLY did not expect that, although after finding out about the back pain i did think eragon would be healed

I think the bloodoath celebration seemed too much like a coincedence. Paolini should have mentioned it earlier rather than the last moment cauz it seems weird that its held once every 100 yrs and Eragon just HAPPENS to be there at the right time.

yeah that is weird, but basically eragon's whole adventure is being in the right place at the right time. for example if he had caught the deer in 2 days (instead of chasing it for 3) then he wouldn't have found saphira's egg.

I know but that just seemed a little too much. I still think he should have mentioned it way earlier, the start of the book or near there perhaps. It semed too mush like a coincedience for my liking there.

i almost cried when ajihad died, i liked him
he reminded me of dumbledore in HP (BTW i was very...'upset' when dumbledore died JK Rowling killed off too many good chracters grrrrrrr)

Sloan betraying Carvahall for the Ra'zac
Murtagh being Eragon's elder brother/Morzan being his dad
There being another rider: Oromis and his dragon Glaedr
There being another rider: Murtagh and his dragon Thorn
Arya rejecting Eragon
Elva being cursed, not blessed
Ajihad dieing
Nasuada becomeing ruler of the empire


okay, out of all of those, lets see, i guess ill just talk about them in order, so.....
sloan betraying carvahall: i kinda expected it it, i mean, even before eldest came out, in eragon roran said he was going to ask katrina to marry him, and even if roran had the proper status, sloan hates him, so of course sloan isn't going to be happy about and of course hes going to do something evil. but at least sloan will get what he deserves sooner or later.
murtagh being his older brother/morzan being his father: sooooooooooo expected. do you think its just coincidence that they are the same abilities in sword fighting? and that they never mentioned their past in eragon? nope, totally expected.
there being another rider: totally expected. who else was going to talk across all the distance from ellesmera to farthen dur except a dragon rider....
there being another rider: one of the few things that did surprise me. i DID NOT expect murtagh to be next rider
Arya rejecting eragon: are you kidding? Arya and eragon? come on!!!! those two are so incompatible, they will never be together. not in your wildest dreams!!!!!
Elva being cursed: definitely surprised me. i didnt even expect to hear of her ever again....
Ajihad dying: i expected it, just not so soon.....
Nasuada ruling: expected. next in line to ajihad, why not?

i didn't find much of it suprising. One of my friends had decided to tell me about the curse he put on the girl and so that wasn't so suprising.

i always had a sneaking supicion that murtagh was eragons brother and everything and it just wasn't a suprise that morzon was his father either.

Murtagh being a dragon rider was a suprise. i didn't expect that.

Post subject:  Re: What Was the Biggest Surprise in ELDEST?

yeah. i expected murtagh to still be alive and all, just joining the evil side, so typical, but i didnt really expect him to be a rider....

especially since he had just gotten the varden's trust.

Author:  sjlsscsdoo [ August 14th, 2008, 5:22 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: What Was the Biggest Surprise in ELDEST?

well, really just ajihad's trust.....the rest of the varden still really didn't trust him.....

Author:  xx_Nova_Nebula_xx [ August 14th, 2008, 5:28 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: What Was the Biggest Surprise in ELDEST?

yeah...
I guess but still, he got ajihad's trust didn't he?
And wasn't that big for him?
