I cannot adequately express my complete and utter loathing for this book I was working at a library during the time that this book was being published and had access to a galley of the novel I did finish it, but only so I could know entirely how much Christopher Paolini the supposed 16 year old author genius had plagiarized J.R.R Tolkien s Lord of The Rings trilogy If you are not familiar with the Inheritance books, allow me to inform you Lord of the Rings TrilogyEragon TrilogyLord of the Rings [...]
Standard fantasy fare, except that while most fantasy authors lift their plots only vaguely from a previous author, Eragon is simply the plot of Star Wars with a Lord of the Rings paintjob Princess flees, trying to keep precious item out of the evil emperor s hands Boy finds item Bad guys burn down his farm and kill his uncle Old mysterious man helps him, and turns out to be part of a secret order of knights to which boy s now evil father belonged Gives boy father s sword and takes him eventuall [...]
Two or three years ago, everywhere I went there was some display attempting to sell me Eragon, by Christopher Paolini It was obviously a bad book without opening the cover the back cover carries a quote from the book, and an endorsement by Anne McCaffrey, and I m pretty sure I could get that woman to supply a blurb for a double mint wrapper to the effect of I couldn t put it down An author to watch for The quote is Wind howled through the night, carrying a scent that would change the world Pleas [...]
Here is a short list of things I find enjoyable than reading Eragon Why does this book read like it was written by a fantasy obsessed 15 year old Oh, nevermind Is THAT why is has EVERY single one moth eaten fantasy clich It s like Paolini actually, in all seriousness, used Diana Wynne Jones humorous The Tough Guide to Fantasyland as a real technical manual on how to create the Eragon universe And the proud parents of a budding new Tolkien , instead of proudly allowing him to read it out loud at [...]
I LOVE the Inheritance books I had never heard of Christopher Paolini before, and was walking through Barnes and Noble when I saw this book on the end display What caught my eye was the dragon on the front cover I love dragons, and my artistic eye was captivated by the artwork This is a great fiction adventure fantasy novel Anyone who is a Lord of the Rings would truly have an appreciation for this book I was hooked from the moment I picked up this book and began reading The story begins with a [...]
EDIT Re wrote fixed up this review on 8 21 2012 to reflect my changes as a critiquer reviewerRight so I ll just say it I hate Paolini s work To my very core I don t really think it s so much the he stole from Tolkien Lucas Gandhi God my dog, though whoever may say this has a point Even though he blatantly took ideas from pioneers in their respective fields, that isn t what bothers me the most.When I was fourteen, I admired him out of mere jealously I was absolutely green with envy that he could [...]
Before we get started Please,please do not judge a book by its movie I read Eragon for the first time when I was 15 years old.I ve re read it 5 times since I didn t own many books back then so after I took advantage of my neighbor s and my cousin s library,I kept re reading my poor collection and every time I loved it just the same,because it was the book that introduced me to the world of fantasy.The storyWhen I got this beauty in my hands,I thought that Eragon was the dragon laugh all you want [...]
seriously, Ben Why have you not read this sooner This beast has been sat on your TBR pile for years What is wrong with you Was little Ben intimidated by the size I FINALLY READ THIS BOOKand breathI honestly think this is one of the best fantasy YA stories Such a classic ERAGON YOU ARE MIGHTY FINEEEEEEE
Age of the readers and how well acquainted they are with the high fantasy genre seriously need to be considered here.I don t think I need to say a lot on my review on this, Eragon is a very popular book and it s been quite mixed received, to say the least The majority of love and dislike usually depends on when did you read the book for the first time If you were still a child or teenager, and haven t read a lot or any high fantasy books yet, you ll probably love this Unfortunately, I m reading [...]
appalling if written by an enthusiastic but tragically over encouraged teenager with insufferably supportive parents who somehow happen to be well connected in the publishing indus wait.ohrry on, then.
A short and somewhat sarcastic summary Main character Eragon, mysteeeeerious boy child left with his aunt and uncle by wandering mother, father unknown Boy finds mysteeeeerious stone Turns out to be dragon egg Boy raises dragon and bonds with it strongly Bad guys come and destroy boy s house and kill his uncle Boy swears revenge Boy s secret dragon is discovered by mysteeeerious storyteller who turns out to be master swordsman and random magic user The hunt for the bad guys begins, and boy searc [...]
I hadn t read this in a super long time, so it was fun to come back to This is still one of my favorite YA fantasy series The writing is a bit clunky at times, but then I remember that the author was only a teenager when he wrote this and everything becomes straight up impressive.Yes, there are obvious Tolkien influences Aragorn Eragon, Arwen Arya the elf, the urgal uruk similarities, and a lot of other names but I kind of like it when authors can create entirely new worlds that are inspired by [...]
Dragons and elves and dragons A lot of people faulted Paolini for trying to copy Tolkien, but the truth is, their styles are nothing alike Tolkien is much poetic and his writing archaic Paolini is a much straightforward fantasy guy And that is not a bad thing I really enjoyed this book and the series overall ranks as one of my all time favorites Why Because it is so well written Seriously now, the descriptions and characters and everything And it is fascinating really well, except for the Pro [...]
A wonderful rec from my GR friend, Anish Thank you Also a super great BR with Sweet Pinky , Lovely Saphy s Trainer and Gentleman Grumpy Cat I saw the movie and loved it, but when I heard about the book recently, I was curious together with a slight feeling of worry as reading the book after watching the movie adaption works quite bad for me But I wasn t disappointed, this book is wonderful RL keeps messing up with me, so, sorry in advance for a short review This wonderful books is worth way pra [...]
Probably the most expensive fanfiction I ve ever read I m not sure what possessed the publishing company to publish this book although I heard thatChristopher Paolini was self published at first I also wrote a book when I was 16 much like Paolini and the quality was pretty much the same asEragon, that is to say, awful Eragon the character is a total Mary Sue Gary Stu he learns to fight with a sword in just a few weeks, his past is angsty, he s the first dragon rider for centuries, etc etc This b [...]
September 2015 Updated ReviewAlthough written by a homeschooled teenager and it definitely shows, especially in the sequels , I was entertained by this novel I had seen the movie first which makes it look like the world was cobbled together while trying to bridge the gap between Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, and was turned off to reading the novels After being told by a cousin of mine that the book was next to nothing like the movie, I tried it out and fortunately found the statement to be fa [...]
Holy guacamole.A great read.Definitely try it.
i learned that this book kicks butt i mean common ppl you see this explosion in a forest gather up the guts to go see what it was and its a hue piece of saphire or is it well then eragon goes around trying to sell it because his family is poor but know one wants it because it came out of the spine for those that dont know what te spine is its a collection of mountians only the brave go in but only the lucky come out i seen the movie and i literally wanted to send a P.O email to him i swear he di [...]
WrensReads Review You know that saying I ll wait till the movie comes out Don t.So I am an aspiring author Let me shed some light for those who don t understand this series is a unique series Imitation a method of writing instruction that bas dropped off the map, fallen through the floor, and disappeared from the face of the earth as far as modern education is concerned And yet imitation is arguably according to Aristotle, Cicero, and numerous other authorities the most effective rhetorical devi [...]
This book spells trite excellently Unfortunately, that s the best quality it possesses.This idea has been overworked many times before, and, if I may borrow a baking metaphor, overworked dough makes for flat product Not only does he steal from successful greats, but ignores completely that the reason why they were great would be because of their ingenuity with GOING TO THE SOURCE and making it their own from there The book takes information from mouths others, throws it together into a conglomer [...]
I tried writing a novel when I was fifteen, too but the difference between me and Paolini is I had the decency to chuck it when I realized how terrible it was I m not going to list a host of authours he borrowed from many people just have different opinions where exactly he borrowed from so I don t want to get into it It s just I think he had potential descriptively, there were some parts of Eragon that were very well written But for the rest, he tried too hard and he tried too early He should h [...]
One of my former roommates is addicted to Young Adult fantasy books, and got me hooked right along with her She had read the first two books in this series right when they first came out, and urged me to read them before seeing the movie which, I later found out, was awful So I did Despite the criticism that Paolini s books get, I found I really, really enjoyed Eragon He pulls a Tolkien and creates his own world, complete with different races, cultures, and languages, which is no easy task His w [...]
Eragon has got to be one of the most tedious books I have ever read I normally love fantasy my love for Harry Potter is an indication of this but Eragon, I could not get through It was excruciatingly long for such a simple journey He chances upon all things magical and makes such a big commotion of things Everything is supposedly mysterious But it is actually annoying than mysterious I love adventure, but his journey was slow paced and took f o r e v e r to get through The writing was terrible [...]
After reading the Harry Potter books, my interest in children s literature was somewhat rekindled I had read a lot of praises for Eragon and when I saw it on offer at half price at the local bookshop near I work, I did not hesitate to pick up a copy.Eragon is the first in a planned trilogy Although Paolini was merely 14 years old when he started writing the book, his inexperience does not show for the most part The writing style could do with some tightening up in places but had I not been aware [...]

Christopher wrote this book when he was fifteen years old He did very well.I love the relationship between Eragon and Saphira I could see there are true affections between the boy and dragon.I have seen Eragon film long time ago, I can t remember what all of the casts look like but I can remember a bit what happened The movie of Eragon and the book are very differences I love the book I really didn t like a film It is pointless Alhamdulillah.
In 2002 I was 16 and a sopho in high school I was the Manhattan finalist for a storytelling festival I was writing, mostly poetry The year before I had been named runner up in a contest held by the Poetry Society of America and had the poem I entered read on the radio I used to feel pretty good about those accomplishments until I read Christopher Paolini s bio on his first book.In 2002 Christopher Paolini was 15 and a high school graduate So, of course, the next obvious step was to write a novel [...]
First read 2007 5 stars Re read 2017 3 stars When I first read Eragon I LOVED it, but it wasn t as good this time around I suppose 10 years makes a difference
