    The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    opinions on what is better "written"
    which author has most creativity

    - Both are actually quite similar if you think about it
    although the times in which they were written were very different!

    - personal op. TLOTR > TIC

    Re: The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    Certainly LOTR is better..... its simple yet brilliantly woven.

    The Inheritance cycle is good but with shit load of unnecessary verbal abuse... the kind of words that series has for the ancient or elven language are extremely crappy.

    Lord of the rings definetly.
    Better story and better writing by far.

    You can tell chris paolini was influenced by tolkien
    Tolkien created a whole language in lotr and chris (sorta) tried to do the same with the ancient language

    I still like the jnheritance trilogy alot too
    Nothing kinda beats riding a dragon

    Its a seriesnof books based on some dude(eragon) being one of the last good dragon riders born in the kingsoknruled by an evilndragon rider (galbatorix).

    The series is just basically him finding out, training, and kicking some ass after that

    it's not trilogy, there are 4 books

    i don't know, i guess it's because i have seen LotR movies before reading LotR books

    i liked Inheritance cycle books more than LotR books

    BOOKS, Eragon movie was COMPLETELY screwed

    I love the fact that the best
    character in Bakuman is based
    on Eiichiro Oda
     

    Re: The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    There is really No comparison between the two

    Lotr is just something else

    Re: The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    for all those that have not read the inheritance cycle and love TLOTR --- READ IT
    its not on the same level - none of the books that come out these days are - but its a good read and has many similarities to TLOTR.

    Re: The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    Never read LOTR, even though I have the entire series on my bookshelf. Inheritance by default.

    Re: The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    I might be heavily biased here since i went to the same school as tolkeins grandson.. so it kinda got drilled into me at a young age that the sagas of Ea were awesome (tolkien wrote over 15 books based on the world of lotr) to me, noone can ever come close to matching the depth and sheer originality to the some 40-50 thousand years of history tolkein made for his stories

    Re: The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    Is it me or is the Inheritance Cycle so diluted that it becomes difficult to remember what is even going on by the time the new book comes out? I like it but the time gaps between the book releases really ruin it for me. I have to remember what happened using context clues as I'm reading. ~_~

    I'll go with LOTR.

    I loved the Inheritance books except for the last one. The ending of it just was so despicable its not even funny. Paolini could have and should have done much better than that. And the fact that there arent going to be any prequel books to tell Brom and Morgans stories upset me.

    Imo Roran and his wife and child should have become Riders, Roran weilding a Hammer instead of the customary sword. Murtaghs story ended horribly as well.

    Sorry for mini rant. Must go LOTR

    I agree..It looked like paolini didnt even make an effort to surprise us...arya becoming rider was so BS...and the vault of souls..another huge disapppointment...

    Re: The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    Inheritance cycle for me, keeps the reader guessing about what will happen next, which I think is brilliant to have in books as the reader attention isn't lost after reading.

    Re: The Lord Of The Rings Vs The Inheritance Cycle

    I like both of em. Since Tolkien basically set the standard for almost every modern fantasy novel ever written, I have to side with LOTR.
