    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    Story

    I easily get bored with most books, especially ones that are as long as this one. Therefore, I switch between books and can have up to four or five books going at once. Not so with this book. It held my attention and entertained me on my daily three hour commute. Often I would sit in my vehicle for a few more moments wanting to get to a good stopping point before I got out. Paolini does a good job of creating characters I could identify with and root for, even with all their flaws. The story is somewhat predictable from an overall standpoint but subtly facinating in how it gets there. I would recommend it to anyone, young or old.

    Story

    As a Guy, I can not see myself going through all the deep emotional discussions and angony in my head that can last for pages. As far as I know, typical guys just don't disect our emotions like the book implies. For a cold blooded killer like "iceboy" he seems a little bit more feminie than masculine. I finished the book but it was definately a chore. I loved the reader though and thought he did a really good job, especially with Puc. My daughter loves the book and wants to hear the other books now....which sort of makes my point.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Story

    I enjoyed Grishim's witty humor and ironic parallels with my own life as he describes a person who has had just enough and then takes a leap of faith into a wild adventure. Then he wakes up to find he's not in the dream he signed up but definately not in the nightmare he was in before. The main character works his way around roadblocks to eventually find his place in his profession. The other supporting characters bring humor and reality to his adventure and to me made it a very enjoyable book.
