First sentence Eragon knelt in a bed of trampled reed grass and scanned the tracks with a practiced eye.
When Eragon discovers the strange blue stone he found in the mountains isn't a stone at all but a dragon egg he begins the adventure of a lifetime as the first dragon rider the land has had for over a hundred years.
I've read this book I believe four times now and it never changes. It's as exciting and fun every time. I love the whole idea of this story. I've always been fond of stories about someone that is special, someone important and unique. (I'm sure a therapist would have lots of fun with that) Anywho, this is one of my favorite series and I loved it as much this time around as the first time I read it. If you like fantasy and haven't read this series...Oh my gosh get off your butt and go read it. ;)
Eragon, I don't think it hurts that Paolini wrote this when he was 15, it makes for a very realistic character in Eragon.
Saphira, ADORE her. Who wouldn't?
Brom, A wonderful teacher and mentor for Eragon.
Murtagh, *Long, dreamy, sad, sigh*
Arya, Slightly uppity but I think that's what Paolini was going for.
Would I recommend it?
Uh, weren't you listening?! YES!!!
