To Sleep in a Sea of Stars
Has anyone read the new Christopher Paolini book? I liked his Eragon series. Just wondering if this compares or is as good?

I’m about half way through and I’m really enjoying it.

I’ve never read his other books but this is good science fiction. In some ways it’s got elements of Alien, The Expanse and Halo.

Just finished today. It was pretty good but like I said in another thread. Its very over the top to me and hard to even imagine some of it because of how far fetched it is.

Wasn’t this one of the main criticisms of Eragon?

Gotta give the guy credit, he's managed to make a nice career for himself mimicking other people's works. The throwing in the young age angle was a nice way to shield himself from criticism as well back in the day.

I didn't even think of the expanse much when I read it but now that I've read your comment again it seems almost stolen from the expanse but not nearly as well done.

Spoiler




















The first thing o thought of when the Soft Blade appeared was the protomolecule from the expanse.

And the Jellies reminded me of the squid alien things from Halo. And speaking of Halo, the nightmares made me immediately think of the Flood.

Yeah just finished it a few days ago. It started of really good. And it wasn’t terrible but as it went on it got harder and harder to buy what was happening.


But it was something to read while waiting for the final Expanse book

From what I remember there were a lot of complaints for it ripping off themes from Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc.

A Christopher Paolini book probably has a lot more than just elements.
