I have read Eragon… but not the rest of the series (did the movie put me off? I honestly can‘t remember) but this is the funniest and best reason I‘ve ever heard for not reading a book.

Eragon and Saphira have the best bond between two characters of any series in my opinion. I always wished I had my own Saphira while reading this book. And this series has one of my favorite zero-to-hero trope stories. Zero-to-hero is one of my absolute favorite tropes.

I am very intrigued by Eragon's story and very curious to see how it will continue. It's a good start to the series and has piqued my interest in the series and the various characters we met in the first book.

Very good fantasy novel, with great storytelling and interesting characters.

Eragon, a novel about a younger boy who is growing up on a farm with his uncle after his Mother, left him as a child with his uncle. As Eragon is out hunting, his life will be forever changed as he finds a warm blue stone in the forest while hunting. Unknowingly he takes home a dragon egg, which lead his family to danger being as it wanted by the empire and Durza - the main antagonist of this book. As we learn, this egg is wanted by the empire…

Paul.Skretting and Durza - the main antagonist of this book. As we learn, this egg is wanted by the empire, and dragon is forced to flee his home to embark on a journey to meat the Varden in the mountains, past the Spine. Brom who is the mentor for Eragon, teaches him basic magic, and techniques to defend himself while also teaching him about dragons, his own dragon Saphira and the history of Alagaësia and its dragon riders. 5mo
Paul.Skretting They face foes along the way, the Ra‘zac, minions of Durza, and Urgals, who have been bred for the fighting against the Varden.

As Eragon‘s strength grows and his magic develops, he is able to cast stronger and powerful spells that require more energy that can leave him vulnerable to the Urgals and Ra‘zac. Farthen Dur, the home of the Varden and dwarves, is finally reached after meeting Murtagh and Arya and countless battles through the Spine.
(edited) 5mo
Paul.Skretting Arya, being an elf, is able to help Eragon develop his magic further before the invasion of the Varden‘s home. The invasion commenced and the casualties were high and Eragon is almost killed. During his battle, he is able to defeat Durza, by stabbing him through the heart, after which, he falls into a coma because of his injuries. The book ends with Eragon receiving a new quest to venture to the capital of the Elven community, Ellesméra. 5mo

Paul.Skretting If magic, combat, dragons and the medieval tyranny, this is definitely a must read for you. A great aspect of the book, is how it is written in first person point of view. The author Christopher Paolini depicts Eragons thoughts and feelings by introducing the aspect of telepathy, mind battles and love interests with others .… (edited) 5mo
Paul.Skretting We see Eragon struggle with his feelings, and mental battles with his foes; one of the most difficult and straining forms of combat. 5mo

It‘s been 6 hours and I have finished 2.5 books. (The Ghosts We Keep, Eragon and half of A Tale of Two Cities.) Here is my review for Eragon:
I suppose that this was a good book, but not so good that I will go ahead and read the next books in the series. I don‘t tend to enjoy books about dragons and adventure anymore (which is a pity), and that has affected my experience. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Happy National Dragon Day! 🐉❤ I couldn't fit an actual dragon in my last picture, so of course I had to take another one! 🤣😂 Eragon will always have such a special place in my heart, as it was one of the first series (along with Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede) that really got me into dragons! Also, it's such a comfort read for me - any time I'm feeling a bit down I feel myself craving a reread of these books! 🐉📚💕 #dragonsoflitsy

In other news, I finally got a copy of Eldest after so long, and now the Inheritance Cycle is complete! 🥳🐲 Now I can't put off re-reading the series. 😂

(Note: I got the movie tie-in version for Eragon because that was the only available copy my local bookstore had. I actually enjoyed the movie when I was younger, but in recent years...*cringe* We need a new adaptation!)

KaylaCReviews I loved the Eragon movie before I read the book. Now, in order to enjoy the movie, I have to think of it as its own separate work, not an adaptation of the book, though there are still cringe-worthy moments. 😅 A remake could be great. There was talk of it and a TV series a while ago, but nothing came of it, sadly. 12mo
asterese @KaylaCReviews Admittedly, there were some good moments in that movie so I like that idea of seeing it as a separate work. 😄 Hopefully we get that remake someday. 12mo

This book had long been on my radar. I finally found a copy at my favorite used bookstore and placed it high on my TBR list. Completely worth the time to read. I enjoy dragons in the fantasy genre. Saphira is awesome. I look forward to reading the remainder of the series. If you haven't read this, you should.

Fantastic start to my favorite fantasy series ever, and this is the simplest one of the whole series!! Christopher Paolini uses such incredible descriptive language that you can perfectly imagine these strange and fantastical places and things in a story he establishes so well that it cannot help but feel real

I wanted to like this more. It's too long and/or slow—what should be fantastic and exciting ends up being a bit of a slog.

TheAromaofBooks I really love fantasy, but I did not enjoy this series. In a lot of ways, it almost read like nonfiction, except of a not-real place, if that makes sense haha I didn't really care for how he decided to end the series, either, so when I got done with all of them I was just aggravated! 2y
JoyBlue @TheAromaofBooks Aggravated? Oh, no—that's not what we want! I'm guessing I won't continue reading the series. I often like fantasy, but this wasn't enough for me. 2y
TheAromaofBooks It just wasn't what I would consider a happy ending, and it felt like after hundreds and hundreds of pages, there should be some happy endings haha But this series definitely has its devotees, so it could have just been me! 2y

Ok, I will admit when I read Eragon I got pretty mad towards the end as it wasn‘t wrapping up and I didn‘t know it was going to be a series. Then at the end of Brisingr the same thing happened because I thought it was going to be a trilogy. But since they are all published now, I can recommend them! Most remarkable is he published the first one in his teens! I loved the story too.

Eragon is such a fun fantasy read! It‘s one of my favorites and I read it and over and over. The characters are all delightfully flawed and undergo quite a bit of growth.This first book is not as well-written as the rest of this cycle but it‘s very fun.I would highly recommend this book to late middle schoolers and up who loved Harry Potter, magic, or dragons.

bookswithbec Just a cool fact for you, Chris was only 19 when the first book was published! That's why it reads different:) 2y
