Eragon = Eragon | Christopher Paolini

Dragons, elves, dwarves and one hell of an advance.
After not being too sure about this series I'm glad I gave it ago. I really enjoyed it.

GingerAntics I‘ve been on the fence about wanting to read this book for over a decade now. 5d
BookishRedhead @GingerAntics I was too. My "friend" tried pressuring me to read it years ago. I think you should try it. 4d

I heard much about this book and I have to say I really liked it! Lots of fantasy but without the endless discriptions.
Going on to the second book now:)

This was a relisten for me. I think the last time I read this was in college. It‘s still an interesting book but this time I noticed how juvenile parts of this book was compared to other parts. It‘s good for a distraction. I‘ll have to read the rest of the series again to see if the writing gets more consistent.

I really expected to enjoy this book, but it just didn‘t work for me. On multiple levels. My biggest issue was with the writing. I could have overlooked some of the trite prose if there was something unique to the story, but it was typical, traditional fantasy with all of the expected tropes. And, I didn‘t like Eragon the character. He lacked depth...and a personality.

1. Spending time with my niece making memories at our local museums and seeing cool movie props from space movies!
2.Unfortunately my dumb brain won‘t let me reread. Even my most favorite books become dull if I try!
3.Jurassic Park Raptors
4.Eragon, I loved it so much. But the movie is an atrocity!

Another kid I tutor is finding it harder to be interested in the creative writing process so I‘m going to set him time to read Eragon in the hope of engaging or encouraging more enthusiasm.

LibrarianRyan Great book. Might help to tell him the author wrote it when he was 15. I found that worked with some of my kiddos. 7mo

Great debut novel. Yes a reread but it‘s been so long I didn‘t remember anything except the name of the dragon and maybe one other thing that I will not reveal here because spoilers. If you have not yet picked this up I highly recommend you do. It‘s a great read for readers young and old.

I love eragon. Definitely my favorite story. In some parts of this book, the reading gets some what boring, but i believe that it was a necessary part of the story. It is when Eragon was traveling with Brom and his training. Their relationship is the important part of this. I have no complain about this book. I just love it.

Day 2! We want to know who the worst villain is. This is not the best, nastiest villain (Umbridge....). This is the worst, most boring, most poorly written villain in any book you have read! Who just annoyed you????

Mine was Galbatorix. Like did he even actually make an appearance or was it just all in the name. I don‘t even remember because I completely checked out after book two. He was a boring plot device and that‘s it. #lovehate

I forgot to share this last week! Finished my baby blanket 😍🙌🏻 my first big crochet project, I just love it. So soft. We have a local place in NC Greensboro called “Geeksboro” which is a coffee shop/wine and beer bar/ geeky, nerdy, amazing establishment. From old gaming systems, to every board game created, to book clubs, to comedy nights, to Harry Potter galas. They have everything here. Such a great place to go and read. It was great.

Re-reading this via audiobook to prepare for the newest novel! It‘s been too long (middle school?) and I just don‘t remember the story. I‘m loving it. But if he speaks in this terrible growl for the dragon every time I might have to switch narrators 😂
Every time I read this I‘m reminded how mad I was when they messed the movie up storyline wise.
Ohhhh I MISS being so enthralled with this series! I may start a bad addiction here 😂
