If my book does end up getting published and they ask who my greatest influence was i would say Christopher Paolini. Heck, I'm not a writer but it was kind of interesting.
But better still, Paolini has achieved a portrayal of true affection between boy and dragon, without ever labouring the point, and this shows real skill. And personally, I love all the pointless detail because that is part of what contributes to its reality.
Near-vertical sides rose out of the ground like a jagged piece of the earth's bone. A good example of its original content would be its reflections on magic, prophecy, and death.

They will say the same exact thing, so what. Some bits were good. He is particularly good with all things to do with the dragon Saphira, whom Eragon rears from an egg. The book was a "fun read" for him because it is "quick and exciting" and "packed" with action and magic.
But sadly that's impossible. The evocative title exemplifies Paolini's flair with words. I re-read it after watching Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. Book 2 was a bit better, as was book 3, and I'm not sure for book Now, I do acknowledge that many of the ideas in this book were built off of others but I still believe that this is an overall amazing read.

I read Eragon before I saw the movie and he appeared just as I visualized him.
Eragon - he was alrite, Brom and Murtagh were by far the best. Like many others, I found the detailed, protracted battle scenes throughout the series quite tedious and usually flicked through the pages to get past the endless bloodshed.
I just finished Inheritance today and of course, loved it. Ajihad imprisons Murtagh after he refuses to allow his mind to be read to determine if he is a friend or a foe to the Varden.

Gives boy father's sword and takes him ev Standard fantasy fare, except that while most fantasy authors lift their plots only vaguely from a previous author, Eragon is simply the plot of Star Wars with a Lord of the Rings paintjob: It helped me get into bigger better written fantasy novels.
This was the book that got me into magical creatures and magic itself as I wasn't fond of it before. Many modern fantasy authors do the opposite: It teaches us that people don't read.
Not to mention that there are authors double his age that do this. This is all part of the impressive depth of backstory that Paolini peppers through the narrative.
They destroyed the whole series with one movie These imitations rapidly settled into a genre known as "high fantasy", often written in semi-biblical style and always with rigid conventions of plot and character.
