* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Anti-fans of the series love to find new interpretations that subvert the good/evil conflict. So far, sites such as anti-shurtugal.com have concluded that Eragon is a sociopath, [[LaResistance the Varden]] are [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified terrorists]] and the original Dragonriders were a racist military junta.

* TheyJustDidntCare: No, the author himself put his all into his series. In this case it was the ''editor'' who was lazy. Aside from making sure that nothing was misspelled there are tons of minor and major continuity mistakes, PurpleProse abound, and somehow didn't notice that a sentence containing the words "descended upwards" doesn't make any sense.

** Also applies to the Elvish civilization as a whole and the EvilEmpire as a whole. The primary problem being that the wrong one of the pair goes to immense lengths to accommodate the needs of all its citizens, even the AlwaysChaoticEvil beast men, foster technological advancement and communication, and secure a good quality of life for the underclasses. The wrong one is also culturally monolithic and intolerant to the point of literally physically transforming the few allies it doesn't treat like absolute dirt into the self-professed master race.

*** It's hard to tell if the use of the "I raped him for his own good, to teach him a lesson" defense above is supposed to be a serious defense of the mind-rape or an illustration of what causes the readers to react to this example of a Galby/Eragon parallel so strongly out of the many available. PoesLaw at its finest.

Added DiffLines:

** SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: A lot of people say that ''Eldest'' was the point where the Cycle actually got its first bit of decent ground to stand on, distancing itself from the ClicheStorm that plagued ''Eragon'' and actually creating an engrossing story of its own with actually interesting characters.

* EndingAversion: Some fans of this series hated how the fourth book ended, due to the fact that it [[LeftHanging left too much hanging]]. (Paolini plans to tie everything up in a forthcoming "Book Five".)
