My kids (girl-11yr & boy-9yr) and I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a little slow starting and the names were confusing at first, but it got moving and was a lot of fun. Taran (main character) gives hope to the average-feeling person. Bravery often comes in small packages. We're ready for the next book in the series.
This book is clearly an amazing effort for a 15 year old kid. But, it is so similar to the Lord of the Rings that it doesn't seem particularly original. Excellent description of the dragon and the relationship between Eragon and the dragon. The author seems to be trying to impress us with his vocabulary. But, overall, we did enjoy reading this book by the end.
