I have read Eragon and Eldest and I actually did like them as books. But when you look at the big scheme of things, it might just be kind of coinidental. In the book cover it says, "His (Paloni's) abbiding love of fantasy inspired him," or something like that. Then I think about it and I think he just took the plot line of Star Wars (not literally, but it is apearent), then placed it in a Lord of the Rings world. He kind of even forgot to change his two main character's names... Eragon and Arya.. kinda suspicous.

But all in all, they are good reads and a nice addition to any fantasy collection. And about #3, I hopes he surprises me...

And if alot of people read it, that means people like it.

Use your logic.


You didn't understand me. Eragon and LOTR were basically the same type of stuff..swords..elves...darves and what not. I said they were popular because The Return of the King came out the same year, making the book big. Because of the LOTR craze it became popular.

I agree, it was popular and that was a reason, similar things have happened all the time...

Don't mention it.

Now back on topic. Anyone think the cover may be anything other than Green? Or has it been officially announced?

O_o I still don't get it.

Probably only 1 person out of every 100 I meet in the street have actually read atleast one of the LoTR books. LoTR became ALOT more famous just because of the kick a$$ movies. Same thing with Harry Potter, after the movie came out, Harry Potter's popularity went insane.

True with Harry Potter, but not with LOTR, they were immensly popular a few years after publication. They were one of the beginners of fantasty. Basically, the highest fantasy there is.

I just watched Eragon the movie today. Of course, I had viewed it once in theaters and it was ok. I rated it two 1/2 stars which, on my scale, is half a star above bad. Though this time, I just couldn't stand it. When Eragon yelled, "LET'S FINISH THIS!" I pleaded to god that it would be in the next 30 seconds.

Let me revise this for people.

The last egg will hatch for Roran because he is a human and he killed some urgals and the twins. The dragon will be green.

That is only an assumption and we all know that the dragon will be green.

Of course, the difference is that The Lord Of The Rings will still be regarded as a classic tale many years from now, irregardless of the the craze which surrounded the film-adaptations - really something quite sad when one considers the fact that so many people will never know the depths of Tolkien's fantasy because they'll have only seen the films - and Eragon (et al.) will likely only be remembered as Paolini's stepping-stones - I do believe he will be an excellent author one day. wink

I've read the books - they were good enough. Still, I've always felt that Paolini borrowed far too much from other fantasy writers, including Tolkien - not that other writers (including Tolkien) haven't borrowed or adapted ideas or themes.

For instance, take a look at that damned map and try to point out at least three place-names that aren't actual plaigarisms or directly derived from Tolkien's Elvish roots, (e.g., Melian; Ardwen; Eldor; Sílthrim; etc.).

All that aside, I'll buy the third book when it comes out....I'd say that it's a good enough series for an introduction to fantasy; after that, I'd suggest many others beside.
