The Eragon movie completely failed.
I am aware, as I read these books, that the imagination it takes to create a new world, dozens of characters including creatures, must emerge from a wonderfully furtile mind. That as I read,I forget the author is not much older than my own children and that he wrote the first book while he was a high school student is a testament to the natural talent Paolini possesses. His story is rich and full and we have a chance to spend more time with some of the more important characters in this fourth book.
Some reviewers say he didn't expand enough on the characters. I would challenge them to re-read their personal favorite sagas that they feel developed the characters better than Paolini did. Lord of The Rings or the original Dune books perhaps? Re-read those book sometime. You might be surprised to discover that neither Tolkien nor Herbert actually give us all that much character back story, but after reading and re-reading the tales and watching the film versions over and over, we "think" we know a lot more about the characters than we actually do because they are now familiar to us.
Paolini gives us just enough information about his characters and lets us use own imagination to fill out the possible outcomes or even origins of their stories. He also leaves a clean path ahead for himself to write another, or several other sagas, where he can dive into specific characters the same way McCafferey did with her many, many Pern and dragons books that weave generations of characters throughout. "Always leave the reader wanting more" is the mantra of good storytelling. He has.Read more ›
Pity the Eragon movie flopped, as the entire story arc has significant promise, with well written twists. Comparisions to Tolkien aren't entirely off the mark as Paolini has succeeded in creating his own universe, albeit without the same level of detail as Tolkien's middle earth, but that was a lifetime's work over many decades. Having said that, this is no less an epic...
He read the second book from his school library but had to return before he finished. We got this boxed set for a Christmas present. He started reading it right away, and within a couple of weeks had finished all 4 books.
The box set is of high quality. The books are comfortable to hold, and the paper seems durable. The box is thick and hard, meant to keep the books straight and last. I highly recommend this set.
The start begins with a farm boy being chosen as a Dragon Rider. It is full of Magic, good vs evil and on farm boy becoming a hero and a teacher for new Dragon Riders.
