I absolutely loved it. I don't care what anyone says, it was the purest example of the word "amazing."

The fact that I could tell it was written by a fifteen-year-old prevented me from both enjoying and finishing the book.

It was probably also that I was a much better writer than Christopher Paolini at the age, as well.

I've heard that it's really damn close to LotR, and having read the five staple books of that universe more times than I can count I had no desire to read Eragon. Is it really that unique?

It's amazing.

It is very similar to the Lord of the Rings. There are some unique elements that make it interesting by no means a boring book. But its very formuliac you know there are so many other stories like this. I wish it was more unique but its not

I downloaded the book (lol FILES) and read some parts. Wasn't really impressed by the prose. It read like a pretty purple synopsis of a movie and you could tell he had had the Thesaurus by his side when he wrote that.

tl;dr I broke laws to read verbose drivel.
