Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy — until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed.

Now his choices could save — or destroy — the Empire.

Tomabob, August 9, 2012 (view all comments by Tomabob)
I thoroughly enjoyed this fantastical story, as it includes dragons, elves, dwarves, and magic continuously throughout the book. It kept me on my toes the whole way through, making me laugh, cry, and scream in frustration. Paolini manages to fit a huge amount of story and action in such a small amount of book. The book flows so quickly and it is so sad when it ends.
