Christopher Paolini's abiding love of fantasy and science fiction inspired him to begin writing his debut novel, "Eragon," when he graduated from high school at fifteen after being homeschooled all his life. Both "Eragon" and "Eldest," the second book in the Inheritance cycle, became instant "New York Times" bestsellers. Christopher is currently at work on "Brisingr," the third volume in the cycle. He lives in Montana, where the dramatic landscape feeds his visions of Alagaesia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eragon?

Readable but painfully unoriginal  Jul 20, 2008
I actually re-read this, and almost reached the end without realising I'd already read it a year or so before. It's that memorable.

It "borrows" heavily from several well-known fantasy authors' work, with little (if any) original content, and the sources are painfully evident throughout. Although it's readable, the writing is shallow and immature. This isn't surprising, considering the author's age. Yes, it's impressive that he finished it, but that doesn't mean it automatically deserved to be published, let along adapted into a movie. Avoid.
wow  Jul 17, 2008
i read this book right before the movie came out, and loved it. I look forward to reading Eldest, soon.
Excellent  Jun 25, 2008
When I bought this, I was looking for something to fill my fantasy void (especially in Audio CDs). The book was outstanding. Yes, its wrapped into the whole Tolkien genera, but it does a nice job of having its own style.

Highly recommend the Audio CDs. The narrator was not as good as Jim Dale, or some others, but nonetheless does a great job.
This book helps your self esteem!  Jun 21, 2008
No, really, it does. First off, I'll say it was a simple read. I didn't have to constantly grab a dictionary and wonder what on earth a word meant. However, that doesn't excuse the Gary Stu (Eragon) or the Mary Sue (Arya) who are pretty much just cardboard cutouts with some pretty wrapping paper. The hero was so stupid. If a ROCK begins cracking, shaking, and making noises in the middle of the night, why would you fall back asleep? The plot was horrbily predictable.


Gasp! Arya's a princess! Did anyone NOT see that one coming? Gasp! The stone is an EGG! Really? Imagine that.
Even worse in audio  Jun 3, 2008
I wanted to like this book - I really did! Despite being gifted with two hardcover copies, I put it off until listening to the audio version. Sorry - I can't make it past Disk 4 of 14. All of the monochromatic storytelling in print sounds even worse, aggravated by the Gerard Doyle's ever-breathless, semi-falsetto voicing for Eragon. As an audio production, this work fails compared to the unabridged CDs of Rowling's Harry Potter series or Pullman's His Dark Materials.
