They are supported mainly by elves, dwarves, and Urgalsbut the Empire is populated with large numbers of humans, who far outnumber Surda and its allies. The Inheritance Cycle focuses on the story of a teenage boy named Eragon and his dragon Saphira. Galbatorix's greatest fear is that a new Rider will rise up and usurp his position as king of the Empire, so when he finds out about Eragon and his dragon, he sends his servants after them in an effort to capture them.
It helped me get into bigger better written fantasy novels. The things I see alot of people here complain about are the lack of originality and its childish writing style.
The originality is not a big deal. The lack of originality comes from these authors building new works within the same genres, of course they will be similar.
Paolini's age can explain the writing style, he was a teenager when he began writing this series. The book was meant for people who were his age, not some older crowd who reads mature novels all the time.
Like I said, the book helped me get into better novels as a kid, thats really what it is meant to be. All I see here is adults complaining that a children's books does not appeal to them. Then why I'm giving such a low rating?
I re-read it after watching Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. And it's not a 'lot of similarities' as some people claim and what do you understand by similarities?
And I say no, the heroes journey is Ulysses's, Frodo's and Bilbo's, this is Luke's story in the middle ages. No, he is a sociopath, ladies and gentlemen.
Someone who rapes an old and tortured man cannot deserve a better name. Okay 'MIND' rape, it's still the same the villain is accused to do. Which brings me to another point. The empire barely does bad things. Books one and two, safe for a minor detail or two, don't show us a great deal.
We are in the middle ages, saying that a ruler is bad for rising taxes isn't much of a stretch. I thought it had some stolen ideas but was very absorbing. Book 2 was a bit better, as was book 3, and I'm not sure for book And a lot of people are knocking it because "it's not original".
Here is a question. There are billions of books out there for every type you can think of. There is going to be over laps from other books but look out there and tell some stranger the book their reading is not a original.
They will say the same exact thing, so what?
You read a book because you want to, not for the originality of it. I really, really love his series on a deep level. If you are looking at this page to see if you should read his books, please at least just give it a try. There are a lot of people with a lot of anger towards a lot of things in this world who just want to give everything a bad reputation, so ignore them and take a look at the first book.
I couldn't put this down! Whilst a good story with enjoyable characters, there is a lack of plotlines and the ending of the series leaves holes big enough to poke a dragon through. It also leaves dozens of loose ends that left me most unsatisfied. I've read it eight times.Christopher Paolini plans new books including another in the ‘Eragon’ world.
