Dragons. Elves. Magic. Heroes. Novel. Written by a 15 year old boy.
Those are the rumors that reached my ears about Eragon.
So, I did what any self respecting book worm would do – I checked the book out the library and proceeded to listen to it. (audio books rock!!)
In a word: Awesome!!
Paolini weaves a beautiful story within a masterful prose of descriptions, feelings and excitement. I love the way he develops the depth of the characters as they live their lives across the pages.
Note that it is a thick book – but once you’re into the world of Eragon, you lose yourself into a tapestry of adventure and excitement. *smile* Time found me wondering around working on the house with headphones and a CD player…
It’s a good read. I would recommend it – especially as I move on to book two (of three): Eldest.
