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.
It all starts with a stone. Or rather what appears to be a stone but actually turns out to be an egg. A dragon egg. When the stone hatches into a egg Eragon finds himself unprepared for a whole different kind of world. He leaves his home after his surrogate father is brutally killed with Brom, the local storyteller. And so his journey begins.
The book is well-written. My only problem with the book is that it is a bit cliche. And it bears a marked resemblance to the Lord of the Rings. But the adventures and the good writing make it well worth the read.
Eragon by Christopher Paolini is a wonderful fantasy book for all ages. Even though I find this book to be based on the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I think the author brought a different prospect to the story and was very creative. I would recommend this to anyone who likes elves or dragons.
"Eldest" is a much-anticipated sequel to "Eragon", and it was worth the wait! With just as much nail-bitibg adventure, romance, and comedy as the first, I know that you'll love it just as much as I did. Join Eragon in the second stage of his grand adventure.
In this books there are many suprises (which I can't give away, but I'll hint at them). Eragon finds an enemy in a friend, fights a great dragon rider, and finds the secrets of his past (as well as some long-lost relatives). But I can't tell you anything else, you have to read it for yourself and find out the rest!
This is the best book I ever read. I have read SO many books, and this is my favorite. If you didn't read this book, I feel sorry for you. If you read this book, but don't like it, either you're mad or you are from another planet. Eragon has everything I like about books. It's thick, has dragons, magic, multiple things happening, and a great adventure. I'd give over 100 stars to Eragon if I could. Go Eragon!
I'll admit that this book has possibly everything that would make a great and thrilling fantasy book. Dragons, legends, magic, swordfights, elves, and a young hero coming to terms with his new journey. Yet somehow while I read this book everything seemed a little contrived. I felt I knew what was going to happen and there was little that was unpredictable. Somehow even though it has the right elements the book was lacking in my opinion. I thought it was interesting if for anything else to waste time. It ends abruptly forcing you to read the next one if you want to see what happens. Yet after reading a rather disappointing book I don't think I'll read the next one.
Upon finding a polished blue stone in the forest, Eragon hopes he can trade it for food. He has no idea that the moment the stone hatches, his life will be forever changed. When his uncle is killed and home destroyed, Eragon and his fledgling dragon, Saphira, are forced to flee from chilling, evil beasts sent by Galbatorix to capture them. Accompanied by Brom the storyteller, Eragon discovers that he is the last of the Riders, who once kept the peace and were wiped out by Galbatorix.
On his journey to avenge his uncle, Eragon learns to communicate telepathically with Saphira, and Brom begins teaching him the skills of fighting and magic. It soon becomes apparent to Eragon, however, that his appearance has reawakened ancient rivalries and he becomes the center of a vast power struggle. He and Saphira can change the evil tides of the empire -- if only they can find out whom to trust.
I think Eragon was a great book, and so is Eldest. People should stop saying the book stinks,(though most are saying it is great)if they cant do better, and trust me NO ONE could do better. Christopher Paolini is an AWESOME author and I cant wait till' the movie Eragon and book three comes out.This was my favorite book, better than Harry Potter, and that's sayin' something!! Paolini put so much detail in the book I felt as if I was the one who rode on Saphira and defeated Durza. Saphira ROCKS!!
I will first start out with telling you why I called this "A Truth". I called this a truth, because there are a lot of truth's about this book, but I chose one or two of them to focus on in this review.
To begin. To begin this review I will talk about other people and what they say about Eragon. Other people say that Eragon is a complete copy of Funke, Dragonriders of Pern, LOTR, Star Wars, and more. Let me ask you something first. Have you read every book ever published? I think the answer is no. No as in N-O. Are you wondering why I asked you this? Well, I hope you are, because I am going to tell why in the next paragraph.
Have you ever thought that George Lucas (Star Wars author) and J.R.R Tolkien (Lord of the Rings writer) ever stole something? Well, let me be the first to break it to you. Yes, they stole from other people, most likely. The theft might have been a little one, but for one person or another they freak out at one copied word or one copied idea. Let me tell you something, all authors, except for those at the very beginning of time or the first ever published in the world, stole from something/someone else. Now to begin with the real review.
Another thing I would like to say really fast before the review. Poalini did not steal names, because if he did it would have said Orc instead of Urgal. Also, Eragon and Aragorn do not sound anything alike, well sort of, but the orn is different then on. Also, Poalini chose the name Eragon, because E is right after D in the alphabet so: ERAGON=DRAGON with the D=E. If you don't understand math the D and E are switched. Ragon Ragon Dragon Eragon. Get it good, now let me begin, please.
Eragon is a masterfully spun book that can intice the reader to want more and more. I hope Mr. Poalini keeps writing, for he will keep getting better. I rated this book a 4/5 because it has some flaws and other things, but most of it is okay. Thank you for reading my review, good day or good night, what ever.
Eragon does copy from Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. The names are copied and so is much of the plot. I think that's reeeeeaaaaaaaaallllly wrong, but I guess some of the writing is O.K. At least the style of writing is different. It's not tooooo bad. Some of the ideas and details are nice but the author really shouldn't have copied other people's ideas.
