This review is from: Eragon (Inheritance) (Hardcover)
The Good: I read this book with my 8 year old son and I found myself looking forward to reading the next couple of chapters each night. It was a very enjoyable read for anyone who likes this type of book. I agree that much of the negative sarcasm in other comments listed here sounds more like jealousy than fair criticism. It is a good book.
The Bad: The book is a little slow and I found myself wondering why I had covered so many pages with no major action taking place....on the other hand, I enjoyed reading it all. I also got the impression that he was trying too hard to impress us with the vocabulary. In some instances he uses esoteric words where more common ones would do just fine.
Overall, I consider myself to be a tough reviewer and would not give out more than 4 stars to anything but a classic, so I highly recommend this book.
