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

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.

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)

When Earagon finds a plished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy. Little does he know it is a dragon egg and he will become the last of the dragon riders, destined to save the world. Filled with fantasy and imagination this is a very enjoyable book.
