I can wait to do the reviews for the rest of the series which are Eldest,Bringersher,and the epic conclusion Inheritance
Good Points
The first epic tale had some awesome parts ,like the part where Eragon meets Siphara . And also where he met the Elf princess. The battle scenes where Eragon is fighting. Also I love how he rescue the Elf princess and his determination of trying to save the princess.

dude. it is obvious that Paolini has copied some bits from LOTR and Star Wars, but why should Paolini be singled out when u ur self said that Lucas and Tolkein had taken some stuff from other stories. It is not plagiarism because had ideas of his own. I mean come on HE CREATED HIS OWN LANGUAGE. SEVERAL TIMES. How would I know.... well my dad is a paralegal so I know this stuff.


Second what do u mean he had Plain Old Poor Writing. He had a huge range of vocabulary. Corpulent. lets see means Fat, stout or portly. so when he says "the skin around his face was dry and corpulent", he means his face was dry and fat. Another example: Prophecies means the foretelling or prediction of what is to come. so when he says "prophecies of revenge...rolled from his tongue", he means that the shade is predicting the future and the future in his case means revenge or death. etc etc.


So don't criticize this book if u do not have solid evidence that this is wrong. Look up the words before u make fun of it and also try and fit the meaning of the word to what it means in the sentence. There is an excellent website for this. Its called Dictionary.com. Use it!

After reading Eragon, I looked at what some of the other reviewers
thought of the book. Much to my surprise, I stumbled upon a great deal
of one-star reviews. After further investigation, I discovered that the
primary reason for these low ratings was that Paolini had "stolen" a
lot of his ideas. Now, I am not claiming that this is untrue - you
would have to be blind not to see the striking similarities between
Paolini's Eragon and other science fiction/fantasy powerhouses like
Tolkien's LOTR & Lucas' Star Wars. However - despite certain
uncanny parallels between the stories and/or characters, I thoroughly
enjoyed Eragon. I am a fan of both LOTR & Star Wars and I found
Eragon an enchanting story. If we as readers, did not read anything
that borrowed from a former writing we would soon run out of reading
material. In fact, you can find countless parallel's between
Shakespeare & Star Wars. I mean, honestly - how many YA
vampire/werewolf stories are there now that twilight was such a
success? They are popping out of the woodwork. When a series is
successful, there will be more like it. I think that Paolini's work on
Eragon was wonderful - I was instantly attached to Eragon and I loved
his bond with his dragon, Saphira. She was undoubtedly my favorite part
of the book. I think it is unfair to dismiss this book because it
harbors some similarities to Tolkien's work - Eragon can easily stand
on its own. It is an epic story and a total page turner. I look forward
to reading the rest of the trilogy.

Fell in love with the whole trilogy this one being my favorite of them all. I love Eragon's character and his relationship with Sappira. The whole story line is great with all the adventures and epic fights that go on as Eragon travels the path of his destiny.

A boy named Eragon is living a normal life in a small village called Carvahall. Carvahall is located in the Spine Mountain range. One day when Eragon was hunting in the Spine, an explotion rumbled through the mountains and a mysterious stone appeared with it. When Eragon tried to sell the stone, no one would buy it because they didn't know what it was. Little did Eragon know that inside the egg was a dragon that would change his life forever. Eragon soon found himself on a deadly journey with the village story teller and a newly hatched dragon.

I liked the book. The author uses some many details and describes everything so well. This book reminds me of Narnia because Narnia is about four kids who becomes friends with an animal and try to stop someone evil from righning over the land. I would recommend this book to any boys from 5th grade to 9th grade because it is a fiction book. I will read the second book in the series called Eldest.

The book Eragon was absolutely amazing! I read it over Thanksgiving break in three days. The author makes parts that would usually be boring in a normal book be extremely exciting! It keeps you on your toes the whole time. I highly recomend you read Eragon then Eldest and Brisingr. Happy Reading!

I fell in love with this book! When people describe this book, they usually complain about its length. I must admit, it was pretty lengthy, and started me reading longer books, but it's so worth it. I loved him as he got Saphira's egg, met Brom, and everything he did. I pity those who think that just because this book is long, they can't read a great story! So read Eragon, or you'll regret that you didn't read it in so long after I finally persuade you to read it!

Eragon is an extra-ordinary book, written by Christopher Paolini when he was 15 years old. That's young. I wish I could write like he does, with so much description, and such exciting plots. I love how he though up the name Eragon, from Dragon, and made the D E(the next letter in the alphabet), and I tried making short stories with words and changing the first letter with the next letter in the alphabet, and it really sounds good! Christopher Paolini is an excellent writer and I hope everyone in the world would please themselves and read this book!

I think this book is BETTER than Eragon. Don't get me wrong- Eragon IS perfect, but Eldest... It's perfect! Wait, that's the same thing! Let's just say that they're both perfect, but Eldest has more amazing twists. Eragon is a rider. Murtaugh saves him, but later Galbatorix (the evil, wants-to-rule-everything-and-is-doing-a-good-job-at-it person) forces him to swear in the ancient language (which no one can lie in, or break a promise) to obey him. And, I'm sorry for spoiling it- Murtaugh is Eragon's older brother!

Believe me, or believe me not! All will be revealed when you read this longer-than-Eragon book. It's longer, but it's perfect-er, believe me, or believe me not, all will be revealed! Read this excellent sequel to Eragon (and I mean NOW!) ^^

This book is awesome, not only for guys but for girls too (me being a girl myself).

There is action and adventure as Eragon proves himself to all those who think it is a tradgidy that he is chosen as the new dragon rider (because a human is too weak and betrayed them all) with Saphira (his dragon). There is also a small element of unrequitted love for Eragon.
