Eragon by Christopher Paolini Book Summary

A new adventure hatches in Book One of the Inheritance Cycle, perfect for fans of Lord of the Rings! This New York Times bestselling series has sold over 40 million copies and is an international fantasy sensation. 

"Christopher Paolini is a true rarity." —The Washington Post

When fifteen-year-old Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon soon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

Overnight his simple life is shattered, and, gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save—or destroy—the Empire.

And don’t miss the most recent book set in Eragon's world, The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm: Tales from Alagaësia!

BEST READS EVERI've read all 4 books and I love every one. I wish the author would write more. Some people say these are teenagers books but I'm 24 and I still love them. Bottom line read these books or live a sad and meaningless life you peasant..Score: 5/5

EragonThis book was pretty bad. The author spent far too much time describing the surroundings, and the book was a dragged-out bore. It definitely did not live up to its great reviews. Don’t waste your time with this..Score: 2/5

TOO LONGToo long to read!.Score: 1/5

One word: MajesticThis is the best book ever. I'm already reading Brisingr. As soon as I read the Prologue, I was hooked. I finished it in less than 2 days, and I was depressed after I finished it. Then I found out it was a series and I was like gimme dat book now. I finished Eldest in about three to four days. Now I'm more than 3/4 into Brisingr. So yeah. GET THIS BOOK N O W!!!.Score: 5/5

A MUST read!I've read the whole series; all four books, and this is a great book! Love it! Very worthy of five stars!!!.Score: 5/5

I Don’t Read, But This Was SpecialI got this book for summer reading in school a few years ago and I never finished it. It had a certain feel to me that just stuck with me, and when I felt that feeling again years later I had to pick it back up. I finished the whole series over one summer. I hadn’t read a book all the way through for a while before. When I could put read the physical copy, I listened to the audiobooks in the car. I’d end up taking long drives and wasting gas with this series but it was totally worth it. The series’ ending stuck with me for a month or so after, and it’s impossible to describe. The music I was listening to over that summer attached itself to the series because it was all I could think about. Now all those songs make me think of the characters and Alagaesia. Read. It..Score: 5/5

My 10yr old loved it.I was reading this book to my son (who has dyslexia). He loved it. I, however, dreaded it and couldn't wait to get into some better lit of this genre like Anne McCaffery or Tolkien..Score: 1/5

Best books!!!!I have read thousands of books and the inheritance cycle is by far my favorite series iv read.Score: 5/5

A must read seriesI originally read this series back in 2005 as a child. The world and its characters drew me in and never let me go. Slow burning in certain areas but a fantastic start to a wonderful saga. Recommend to anyone who enjoy a good fantasy defying book.Score: 5/5

Riveting YetAlthough I found "Eragon" riveting, I thought it lagged in a few areas. Also I was a little disappointed with the archaic trope of damsels in distress. The women's prowess seemed to have come a little too late..Score: 4/5

My absolute favorite book.My review I did before was not right. I came back from putting the book down to read Heroes Of Olympus, and I read it. This book is the masterpiece of every book of all time. It has characters that make you smile, twists that sometimes make you cry, yes, make you cry. My review before was made when I was only a fifth through this gem, and now I’m not completely done with the book, but already it is actually getting close to the series Percy Jackson. If you are reading this review, then I literally with my whole heart say, read this book, no doubt about it, it is a book that everybody should read in there lifetime, unless people don’t like reading, which is kind of sad because they take you to different worlds, which I think is a miracle. Okay enough of me ranting. Buy this book..Score: 5/5

AmazingThis book was simply amazing! I saw the movie years ago when it came out and I loved it! When they didn't make anymore movies, I decided to read the book. The book is SOOO much better then the movie and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series..Score: 5/5

My thoughts.I love this cycle. I am not that big of a reader but I started this cycle in high school back then only Eragon and Eldest had been written and released. So I waited patiently for brisinger and inheritance. And I can’t wait for more to come..Score: 5/5

AmazingI’ve read this series four times through now, and I love it. The main character is one of the best because no matter what happens he still makes mistakes. This, to me only makes his proudest moments even better. Christopher Paolini wrote the four books in a way that it’s easy to follow along with what’s going on. All the characters are really relatable too. Definitely would recommend this to anyone who loves Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and The Witcher series..Score: 5/5
