Eragon is a lonely boy who has to support his uncle Garrow and cousin Roran by hunting in the Spine. It is good hunting because nobody else in his town ever goes there. One day Eragon finds a turquoise stone. Eragon thinks that he has gotten some luck at long last. To him it looks like the stone could buy him food for at least three years. But when the traders come late, Brom, the storyteller, tells the small town of Carvahall about the old government, the empire.
The dragon riders ran the government with their magic. The dragons hatch when the rider that was meant for them has the egg and is ready to become a rider. Everybody was happy until Galbatorix overthrew the riders and has ruled since that terrible event. Soon Eragon's stone cracks and out pops a tiny little dragon whom Eragon names Saphira. When Saphria gets big enough she and Eragon soon go on many great adventures. Now it lies on Eragon's shoulders to relieve the world of the evil King Galbatorix.
Christopher Palnoni fills the book with adventure, and makes it unpredictable. He also makes the characters so lifelike that when I was reading it I was seeing a movie in my head. It is a real page-turner. I think that it is amazing that he wrote a book when he was fifteen that is better written then most authors who have graduated college. It is the best book I have ever read and I recommend it for any age and even people who like other genres.
"Eragon" was a fantastic book, containing all that a fantasy lover could ask for. Dragons, magic, mythical beasts, and a great storyline, which make this book a no brainer for kids of all ages.
This is a truly good book that many children and adults will like. We are r you look at it from a different point of view, not one of he copied Lord of the Rings and many other books and all those other negative comments but that this is authors first book and he was only 15 when he started it you might enjoy it much better. His writing style will imrpove with years of practice. I recommend this book to all children who like fantasy books and are at a lost of books while we are all waiting for the 6th Harry Potter book.
