    Taran dreams of adventure, but nothing exciting ever happens to an Assistant Pig-Keeper, until his pig runs away. A chase through the woods leads Taran far from home and into great danger, for evil prowls the land of Prydain. With a collection of strange and wonderful friends whom he meets on his journey, Taran finds himself fighting so that good may triumph over evil, and so that his beloved home will not fall to a diabolical fiend.

    Brian says: "Important lessons learned for young ones"
    "Good, brave fun!"
    Overall

    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.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"
    "Good first effort"
    Overall

    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.
