Pon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself Overnight his simple life is shattered and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny magic and power With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance Erago. Here is a short list of things I find enjoyable than reading EragonWhy does this book read like it was written by a fantasy obsessed 15 year old Oh nevermind Is THAT why is has EVERY single one moth eaten fantasy clich It s like Paolini actually in all seriousness used Diana Wynne Jones humorous The Tough Guide to Fantasyland as a real technical manual on how to create the Eragon universe And the proud parents of a budding new Tolkien instead of proudly allowing him to read it out loud at family gatherings decided to publish it and unleash it upon the worldLEFT the ride that this story promises to take you on RIGHT what you actually get The only way to actually enjoy Eragon is if you have never encountered a single fantasy related story in your life and that includes Star Wars by the way Let s have a roll call for the clich s shall we A mysterious talented orphanpoor farm boy Check Dragons Check Elves and dwarves Check Stew Check Ancient sword Check The weird apostrophe ridden names save the protagonists of course Check A uest Check Hot chick Damsel in distress Check And it goes on and on and on Wait you say maybe Paolini was deliberately paying homage to the traditions of the fantasy genre Fine I suppose that could explain some of it But still blindly and straightforwardly rehashing of the old tropes without adding much originality IS NOT OKAY okay I think that the writing is immature and betrays the author s young age and lack of experience Throughout the novel Paolini clumsily brings our attention to anything that he considers important to the story with constant reminders and brick sized hints Foreshadowing should be subtle but I don t think he uite grasps that concept The descriptions are trying too hard to be Tolkien like but fail at this miserably His attempts at creating accents and dialects are pathetic There were uite a few instances when I had to shake my head muttering I don t think this word means what you think it does The prose is stilted and uite irritating while trying to be overly pretentious OH I SEE The characters are flat and devoid of any believable personality with shallow and simplistic motivations that only exist to move the plot forward The interactions between them are far fetched and forced The protagonist Paolini s version of Luke Skywalker absolutely marvelous at so many cool things with minimal training every child s dream is there for the reader to self insert into the story The deux ex machina bits replace so many actual solutions in this story that no amount of eyerolling would suffice And the plot holes the story is so full of those there s barely any plot left at all As for the worldbuilding well he stuffs it with every imaginable fantasy trope as I mentioned before Ughhhh And yet at the end nothing is memorable Wind howled through the night carrying a scent that would change the worldThe first sentence alone should have stopped me from reading this book I should have reorganized my sock drawer insteadWhy did I read it if I hated it you ask Simple answer I was bored and this was the only book within reach I would NOT recommend it to those who are familiar with the fantasy genre

    Check out this book in my very first video review Anyway onwards to the review I could read this one a hundred times and love it just the same This was my middle school book series I read it over and over and over and as you may have guessed over and over It had dragons And elves and magic and swordplay and not a love triangle in sightEven rereading it as an adult I justcannot separate all those happy memories

    I cannot adeuately express my complete and utter loathing for this book I was working at a library during the time that this book was being published and had access to a galley of the novel I did finish it but only so I could know entirely how much Christopher Paolini the supposed 16 year old author genius had plagiarized

    Age of the readers and how well acuainted they are with the high fantasy genre seriously need to be considered hereI don’t think I need to say a lot on my review on this Eragon is a very popular book and it’s been uite mixed received to say the least The majority of love and dislike usually depends on when did you read the book for the first time? If you were still a child or teenager and haven’t read a lot or any high fan
