This book is head and shoulders better than the weak movie made from it. Please read to get the full effect of what you missed. Written along the lines of Lord of the Rings with just as good a plot and interesting action. A must read
I did enjoy this book very much but something was wrong in the narration, I figured it out when I saw the movie. I strongly feel that this book should have had more than one narrator. After seeing the movie, which is something I rarely do after reading a book, I realized that Safira's voice should have been done by a woman. There was just something about a female voice that made her more alive and real. In all the movie did get the basics but the book is so much richer.
For the first time in my life I have actually listened to an audio book and then gone out and bought the actual book and then read it again
This young man has a true future in the literary world. Keep on writing at this level andthere will be no limits to how far you may go.
The sky is the limit"Congratulations I loved it "
An amazing story, well written, and brilliantly read. I typically only listen to these in my car. I actually would take extra trips at times just to hear more of the story. If you are into fantasy at all, Eragon is an amazing book.
For young and old I would highly recommend The Inheritance Trilogy. The only downside is waiting for the 3rd and final book. As a 40ish adult I have cherished becoming immersed in this book and have enjoyed sprited discussions with my 10 yr old daughter about the characters and plot and future developments. Reading books like Eragon and the Harry Potter series can open a dialog with an otherwise sullen and withdrawn tween easily.
This writing truely captures a heart open to fantasy. Eldest, the 2nd book in the trilogy is even more well written and the climax leaves you yearning for more. Well worth reading over and over again!
We can expect great things from Christopher Paolini in the future.
Just a well rounded, simple, fun ride. The author was 17 at the time so it shows -- a little. Nonetheless, it's a great book to pass time behind the wheel. The narrator does a truly excellent job bringing the book to life.
I enjoyed this book. Although it does have similarities to other, more noteable, books; it still has enough individualism to make it enjoyable.
