When I read this book for the first time, it was everything: inspiration...an amazing example of really really good literature...a motivation for me to work hard to get published early in life. I remember thinking the writing was great, the story super intense, the characters fully developed. Then I read Eldest. Then Brisingr. Then Eragon again. My opinions have...ummm....changed. I'll say first off that I want to cut this guy some slack. After all, he did write this when he was just 15, and that's pretty darn amazing if you think about it that way. But really, if you look at it from the viewpoint of one who has read a lot of really great literature, Eragon is nothing super duper special. Good, but...lacking. The writing is good, but it lacks life, meat. Paolini gets across what he wants you to see, but not in a way that gave me chills or made me want to live there or experience that world with Eragon. Speaking of Eragon, he's just average. I never felt a connection with him, through all the books. I liked him, but not enough to really care about him. I cared more for Arya and Murtagh. Murtagh is actually one of my favorite characters in the whole series, a great, tragic character who caught my eye from the first. And Brom...oh Brom. I loved him. The story is fairly good, but not as strong and original as I'd want. It was, however, enough to keep me interested and a couple of the scenes, because of their sheer danger and magical intrigue, really stuck with me. So, this book is worth the read, because it is good, and because the series just gets better and better

I understand what my pupils like so much about 'Eragon' as I enjoyed reading it myself. I actually look forward to reading the other books in the inhertance cycle. That being said, it did take me a while to get into the story. Somehow the beginning of the book seems a bit weaker then the rest of it!

Grrrr. He never tied up all the loose ends floating around the herbalist. Disappointed.

This is exactly what I wanted and it was a great deal to boot. The corners of the cardboard "box" that holds the book had slight damage to the corners when I received it but nothing that putting it on a bookshelf won't hide. Overall I am very satisfied with this purchase.

I first started reading this series as a teenager and was immediately drawn into Paolini's world of dragons, magic, elves, and dwarves. As I reread this series years later, I was very impressed with Paolini's writing and creativity that appeals even to adults. The emotion and vivid description in this book is incredible, and I am anxiously awaiting the final book.

My daughter kept checking these books out from the library at her school, repeatedly. She would finish the series, and immediately begin reading Book One, Eragon, again. Finally she asked for her own set. She loves them very well - highlighting, notes, dog-ears. She is completely captivated by the magic, mythical creatures, and engaging mystery & action. She also identifies with the main character and his search for his own Truth. One particular passage she has outlined and referenced multiple times is in the third book when Eragon is questioning which religion he should join. He wonders if there are parts and pieces of truth in every religion and if it's up to the seeker to identify this truth, and then ultimately decide for himself. I give the author kudos for his skilled writing of an epic adventure that captivates and enthralls children, while weaving in large concepts to motivate his readers to think for themselves.

Although the majority of moments in this series are just painful, there are a few that are clumsy enough to bring enjoyment to the fans of 'so bad it's good' movies. Also recommended to writers as a guide that touches upon everything to avoi whilst writing.
