Needless to say everyone knows about Eragon. I've never read the book because of the dreadful movie based on it which made me hate it instantly. The first pages went on slowly and I continuously tried to put it down, but once you enter into the magnanimous world of Alagaësia the book started unraveling itself and its wonderfulness. Paolini claims to have started the book after realizing there were no good "quality writing fantasy" books and although I beg to differ I have to admit the thorough writing and dedication in the book are remarkable. Paolini weaves a world of new characters with such precision not done lightly giving birth to a great fantasy novel full of fights, magic and dragons. Overall, I was utterly impressed with the story and can't wait to start the next in the series. A great read for everyone regardless of gender or age.
