This is a wonderful book! Eragon is a new Dragon rider and the word is out! He will have to go through nany challenges to find the Varden! So many sad things happen, Sometimes I even cried reading the book! Eragon will make new friends, enemies, and meet a line full of changes. Can Eragon stay strong or will he surrender to the shade, urgles, and most of all, Galbatorox!

I mak it a habit to visit the bookstore regularly now that I've got my beautiful and long-awaited car. When I arrived at the store, all I saw was this strangely captivating blue book with a dragon on it's cover. And for some reason, ever time I went, I refused to buy it, and I have no idea why. Mayhaps I was waiting until I had enough money?

Anyways, my father luckily came with me on my next visit and the beautiful blue book caught his eye. I could not move my Dad from the couch, the next few days, and that in itself is one of the biggest compliments my father (or I, for that matter) could ever give out.

That book cost less than it would for one day at Disney, and yet kept me on the edge of my seat for the whole three day journey. It was incredible. The smoothe way that Christopher writes his sentences is an estimable quality that should be harnessed and never lost, for it is what makes any story palatable.

The story itself wasn't the most original (after all, it deals with a common boy, who gets to fly a dragon, and fight evil kings), but the way this gifted boy/man author took this old-time story and turned it Paolini-style makes it one of the lucky books that will stand on my shelf, waiting for it to be reread time, and again.

You will not regret reading this wonderful book, because I say so.

Incase you don't know my other name is Spartan 0

This is a great book I read it in 2004. It's part of a series. It's about a boy named Eragon I think who gets a "gem". Later he finds out it's a dragon's egg. When shes older Eragon tries to ride her but unfortunately for him her back shreds the skin off his legs. lol. He makes friends with this old rider who is a person who owns a dragon. I think his name was Brom. Anyway they find an unconcious creature and take her to her home. Eragon later must duel a spirit of some kind.

The funniest part is when Eragon uses magic on his arrow and shoots it at an enemy explodes it and snuffs it cause he is drained of magic. Brom finds him later I think.

I thought Eragon was one of the best books i have ever read. it was a awesome story about a young boy and a dragon. i thought it was worth 30 bucks or whatever u said........ i actualy thought it was worth more than 30 bucks!!! but there is only one prob with the author he takes way to long to make the next book. And i have plenty of friends who disagree with what u thought about the book even my teacher!!! u better watch what u say about good books boy... it must mean u are a messed up person who cant understand ANYTHING!!! u probably cant understand what i just typed u dippo brain. POFFY ESQUARE!!mestup mongoose man....

Eragon by Christopher Paolini is a magical book and absorbs you in this wonderful world of magic and dragons.

The story is nothing special and i'm sure many others novels like this will have similar plots of revolting against the dictatorship and how a young boy is the man behind this. But none the less this is a fantastic book. The characters are complex and you can never seem to have a certain opinion. Eragon, will make you feel he is brave and worthy, but other times will be naive and rash. Brom, will one moment be this kind, wise old man and the next, a devious and tricky man who betrays people. There is Murtagh, who appears stubborn and uncaring, but has fantastic bravery and fighting skills and is a worthy ally to have despite being the son of the man who betrayed the dragon riders.
The whole world of Alagaësia is so very vividly described and everything is portrayed so well you clearly imagine the whole book inside your head. The world also seems so real and is a joy to read.

Overall, this is a fantastic book and i'm will certainly devour the second book in the Inheritance Cycle.

Eragon is the amazing story of a young man, Eragon, and his dragon, Saphira. In this book they go on a quest for vengeance. Eragons uncle has been killed by the Razac, King Galbatorix evil minions. As Eragon and Saphira hunt for the evil Razac they meet new friends along the way and learn many important lessons. I recomend this book to those who like mythical creatures, Magic, and a good story.

Eragon is a teenager when he comes across the dragon egg. He just thinks it might look good in his bedroom, but he gets a surprise that changes his life. The egg hatches into a dragon, and Eragon calls her Saphira. Once she is born Eragons life starts going downhill. Creatures come from everywhere to steal the egg and in the process Eragons uncle is killed. Fueled by the desire to get revenge and protect his village, he sets off with Brom, a used-to-be dragon rider. They go through many lands, while Eragon gets stronger. Then during his journey, while trying to save an Elf, Brom dies trying to save Eragon. They later meet up with Murtagh, who leads them to the hideout of the Varden. The Varden is against the evil rule of the monarchy. While there the Shade finds Eragon again, and they fight. The Shade dies but Eragon gets a large scar on his back as a reminder forever. Ayra then tells Eragon that he must complete his training in the land of the elves. Eragon agrees, for it was the only way to get his revenge. This book was full of suspense and I couldnt put it down! If you love fantasy, you will love this book.
