Eragon (Inheritance Cycle #01) by Christopher Paolini
Eragon (Inheritance Cycle #01)

Sillyhead, February 16, 2007

This book took too long to get where it was going, though it impressed me a great deal as a first book by a very young writer. Now that I have read many fantasy genre books, I am disappointed to see how much of this, and even more of his second book, ELDEST, were outright plagerism (only the names have been changed, and at that, not much) taken directly from Star Wars by way of LOTR. Save your money. Go for something original, without a powerhouse machine set up to push it. I highly recommend FABLEHAVEN by Brandon Mull. It has had virtually no press or push, (a small publishing house) but is a far better read.
