This is a great book to read. If you liked Harry Potter then I believe that you will also like this.

It should go without saying that this book far surpasses the movie. It is a great novel by a fantastic young author. Will leave you wanting more.

This was a great story, and very formidable for such a young author. The book (ask usual) was soooo much better than the movie. A worthy, and entertaining read! (it'll make you want to follow the continuing story)

I actually saw the movie in the theater before I'd ever heard of the book. I thought that it translated so well to the screen that I was compelled to check out the book from my local library since books are usually so much better than their movie counterparts. I wasn't disappointed. I couldn't put it down. I was also very impressed by how young the author was when he wrote the book. I have since purchased a copy and added it to my permanent collection.

I will admit that my first attempt with Eldest did not capture my attention, but I recently checked it out from the library again and started over. For some reason, this time around I am totally hooked. I guess I just have to be in the mood for it.

I admit that it doesn't have fabulously intricate character and plot development like J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter books where every tiny detail seems to have significance in later events. However, I still found it to be a very enjoyable read and I look forward to reading future creations by this talented author.

Enjoyed the story very much! That being said it could have easily been edited down by 100+ pages. At times lots of story detail was provided but little information was actually gathered. Found the use of the ancient language gratitious at times. This won't stop me from reading the series as Sephira (the dragon) is an interesting character that I look forward to seeing further developed.

Delightful captivating read. I picked up ELDEST, the sequel to ERAGON, @ local thrift store & was intrigued by authors young age. When I realized it was a sequel decided to order ERAGON from PBS to start from beginning.
Am a grandma & don't usually read sci-fi/fantasy, but wanted to sample before passing on to my granddaughter. Finished ERAGON in just few days & have now started on ELDEST while characters are still fresh.
Main criticism for early readers is abundance of "gore" & "slaughter", but realize it is part of reality of ancient times. Young adults should be able realize it if "fantasy".
