I know it's been a while since I have posted a review, but I've been swamped with things and it took me quite a while to read this book. So, here is what I thought of Eragon: Overall it is a great story that is told very well. It was a little slow starting for me and I almost put it down and chalked it up as a book I wouldn't enjoy. I'm glad I didn't. This book turned out to be quite the page turner once you got into middle and end of it. I love the character development and the great descriptive language used in the book. It's almost like I'm traveling to the cities and through the valleys with the characters in the book. I love where the plot is going and can't wait to read books 2 and 3 and see where it all ends up. Overall this book gets a 4/5 from me.
Had the same problem with Eragon when I started reading it. The dialogue was distracting and it was slow going. I'm glad I kept reading though. The 2nd and 3rd books are awesome. The only problem is that now we'll have to wait 10 years until the next one (Paolini is the worlds slowest writer). It will be worth the wait when it comes. Good to see another guy blogging books (especially YA). http://casadelosnerds.blogspot.comReplyDelete
