    EDIT: Re-wrote/fixed up this review on 8/21/2012 to reflect my changes as a critiquer/reviewerRight so. I'll just say it: I hate Paolini's work. To my very core. I don't really think it's so much the "he stole from Tolkien/Lucas/Gandhi/God/my dog..," though whoever may say this has a point. Even tho...

    Standard fantasy fare, except that while most fantasy authors lift their plots only vaguely from a previous author, Eragon is simply the plot of Star Wars with a Lord of the Rings paintjob:Princess flees, trying to keep precious item out of the evil emperor's hands. Boy finds item. Bad guys burn dow...

    I cannot adequately express my complete and utter loathing for this book. I was working at a library during the time that this book was being published and had access to a galley of the novel. I did finish it, but only so I could know (entirely how much) Christopher Paolini (the supposed 16-year-old...

    Two or three years ago, everywhere I went there was some display attempting to sell me Eragon, by Christopher Paolini. It was obviously a bad book without opening the cover: the back cover carries a quote from the book, and an endorsement by Anne McCaffrey, and I'm pretty sure I could get that woman...

    I LOVE the Inheritance books. I had never heard of Christopher Paolini before, and was walking through Barnes and Noble when I saw this book on the end display. What caught my eye was the dragon on the front cover (I love dragons, and my "artistic eye" was captivated by the artwork). This is a great...

    Here is a short list of things I find more enjoyable than reading Eragon:Why does this book read like it was written by a fantasy-obsessed 15-year-old? Oh, nevermind... Is THAT why is has EVERY single one moth-eaten fantasy cliché??? It's like Paolini actually, in all seriousness, used Diana Wynn...

    Before we get started -Please,please do not judge a book by its movie.-I read Eragon for the first time when I was 15 years old.I've re-read it 5 times since (I didn't own many books back then so after I took advantage of my neighbor's and my cousin's library,I kept re-reading my poor collection) a...

I FINALLY READ THIS BOOKand breathI honestly think this is one of the best fantasy YA stories. Such a classic! ERAGON YOU ARE MIGHTY ...

    I could read this one a hundred times and love it just the same. This was my middle school book series. I read it over and over and over (and, as you may have guessed, over and over...). It had dragons! And elves and magic and swordplay and not a love triangle in sight.Even rereading it as an adu...
