Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy-until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. 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.

While Paolini obviously borrows certain aspects of his fantasy universe wholesale from Tolkien—elves and dwarves are almost public domain at this point—Eragon is no mere imitation, but a wholly creative and original work. The depth of the world, the nature of magic, and the believability of its characters all help Eragon to stand out as a shining example of fantasy done right. I was continually impressed how the story seldom went in a predictable direction, but never felt forced or contrived. So if you like fantasy and want something new, look no further than Eragon.

This book is my all time favriote book it has so many twits and is full of adventere and you never know what will happen next. I also like how they picked a kid not an adult and the name of his dragon is uniqe.
