(Best book of all time!)
Eragon is a magnificent story written by the presently 19 year old Christopher Paolini. It is an epic tale of dragons, elves, men, an evil ruler, and a boy on the verge of becoming a man. No book is better than this one!

EVERYONE would enjoy this book. There are great ideas in it, and it is written really well. Eragon is a boy who lives with his uncle and cousin, and one day he finds a strange rock on his farm. A couple of days later the rock, which is actually an egg, hatches into a dragon. Eragon must now flee from the law, and he has his friend Brom to help him. It is a very engaging book and I hope you like it.

This book is about a poor farm boy named Eragon who finds a shiny blue rock in the forest. It looked so valuable, so he tries to sell it to get money for his family, but it turns out it’s a dragon egg. He raises the dragon. The dragon was an ancient, valuable creature. They have to go through a dangerous empire ruled by an evil King. Eragon tries to be a dragon rider. This book was confusing.

The book Eragon is about a poor farm boy who goes by the name of Eragon. While hunting in the Spine, a dangerous untamed land in Alagaesia, Eragon finds a polished blue stone. That stone ends up being a dragon egg. With the help of an unlikely friend, Eragon sets out on a great adventure. Audio book read by Gerard Doyle.

I loved the book Eragon because Christopher Paolini developed complex characters and setting that never ceased to amaze me. The plot is very well thought out and the whole book flows together very nicely. Also, Gerard Doyle gives new life to the characters with his narration.

Eragon found a strange rock while hunting one day. He had heard tales of dragon riders, when his strange rock reveals a dragon. Trained by Brom, he travels to find Varden.

I liked this book. Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, work together and occasionally act like whining, bickering children.

The book is about a boy who finds a dragon egg. When the dragon egg hatches he sets off on a journey with a local storyteller and dragonrider, Brom, who teaches him magic, to read, and how to ride dragons. But soon the King learns about him and Brom gets killed when Eragon is hurt. A man named Murtagh saves him and helps him make it to Farthen Dur where his future waits for him to decide what to do. I liked this book because I love fantasies. I love to read about dragons and fairies, so this book really hooked me even though it was more than 500 pages long.

This book is amazing! I love the amount of adventure and action in it! I recommend this book to all readers. It is about a 15 year old boy who has lost his uncle due to villainous creatures, and seeks revenge with his dragon, which he found in the mountains. The book gets better, and is part of a series. This is the best fantasy series I have read. It will surely lure you in!
