Favorite book as a teenager- doesn't hold up great

I remember this book quite fondly from my youth, but after reading it as an adult I realize how many issues it really has. The book was written by a teenager and it shows. I enjoyed it as a teenager, but since then I've read much better fiction that showed how to properly show off the genre.

Plagiarism

Took 80% of his series from David Eddings and the other 20% from everyone else.

I LOVED it!

I have to admit,when I first picked up the book, I was quite skeptical if it would be worth my time reading it...but I absolutely loved it! So to anyone out there, old or young ( I'm 21) if you love dragons,fighting, heroes, or just plain awesome fantasy, then this is the series for you. 馃憤

Incredible

I first read Eragon about eight or so years ago. Since then, I have bought the entire Cycle (only four books, not nearly enough!) and re-read it many times and will be doing so again shortly. There are some minor flaws with the book, yes, but all is easily forgiven with a story like this. It is a well-written adventure with beautiful and poetic imagery that can easily stir the imagination and make you believe in magic. That being said, this book is an excellent way to expand you vocabulary. I definitely recommend the Inheritance Cycle to anyone, adults included! P.S.- If you're an adult considering purchasing the Cycle for an older child, I would say go for it. No sex scenes. Language is extremely minimal, so no worries about f-bombs or such. As far as violence goes, there are sword-fights galore and inclusions of death, dead bodies, and killings, but nothing nightmare inducing.

Imaginas que es un granjero simple que se va a cazar para comida y toda su vida cambia. Una explosión de ningún parte y en el centro es una gema misteriosa. Mira inocente pero en unas días desde la gema nace un dragón. Toda su vida va a cambiar. Eso es que paso a Eragon. Todo se va bien y el dragón se crece pero cuando el rey aprende del dragón y algo malo se pase a Eragon el se va de su pueblo. Va con Brom que no más mire como un viejo del pueblo pero es mucho más. Los dos van al sur a encontrar los rebeldes del rey y piensan que ellos pueden ayudar. Ese libro es llenado de acción y misterio. Yo pienso que es uno de los mejores libros fantasías que yo ha leído. Nuca quiere parar de leer y cuando termino el libro yo estaba triste. Rápidamente yo busque el libro siguiente. Yo recomendó ese libro a cualquier persona que está buscando algo a leer. Ese libro va a dejar queriendo más.

A Great Young Person's Read

I have to say after reading some other's less-than-glowing reviews of this book that there is an important, crucial fact they have not seemed to take into consideration-- THIS IS A CHILDREN BOOK. This is not a book written for adults; even though certainly many, many adults have enjoyed it. It's also as certainly written quite as well or perhaps even better than your usual ripped bodice, Danielle Steele or Jacquelyn Suzanne. It is written for the older children-young adult bracket, ages 11 through 17 or thereabouts. I, for one, am grateful my 12 year old son had something as interesting as this to enjoy. It's vital that the kids read. So I say "Hooray for Eragon!"

well i liked it...

i know on here are more bad reviews then good ones but im halfway now and i admit that i really like this book and though it might not live up to lord of the rings. its still not that bad.
