    I've read Eragon.
    It was okay, a total ripoff of Star Wars though.
    I've wanted to read Eldest, but I haven't got the time. I barely have enough time to read my school books.
    And the movie was...yeah...all copies of the film should be burned and Zatanna should mindwipe it from every human's mind.

    Watched the movie. Too cliched and completely unoriginal.

    I did a character analysis of Eragon...turns out he's a sociopath.

    BTW, Book 3 comes out this September. Its been split into 2 parts. No word on when Book 4 comes out.

    It was not bad but I prefer the sword of truth and wheel of time series.

    I most certainly dislike the books for reasons I'm too tired to explain, so I'll link you to a website that gives a well-structerd (if a little *****y) analysis of their failings: http://www.anti-shurtugal.com/wordpress/?page_id=11 . This is where the 'Eragon is a sociopath' bit comes from.

    It's not a bad series of books, but not great either.

    It's a rip-off of "Star Wars" with dragons. That's what you get when you give a 17-year old with not enough experience a book deal.

    Well, people will probably tell you something like "go read The Dragonriders of Pern" since it came before Eragon. I gave Pern a go and in all honesty can say that it wasn't my cup of tea. Too much sci fi for my tastes. I will say that I liked the dragons' method of choosing their Riders in Pern better than in Eragon.

    If you want more dragons, there's Pern (not my style) or a lesser-known series by Allan F. Troop called The Dragon DelaSangre. Its writtem from the perspective of a dragon and introduces a mythology to the creatures that I have never read about prior to this (Troop's) series. There are currently four book, the first being titled The Dragon DelaSangre. I really recommend them! :up:

    So Unkown I take it you are an Eragon fan? I've got some theories about Galbatorix I would like to share with you via PM if so. :yay:

    Not all of the Pern books are super sci-fi...I still recommend that he go check some of them out. The ones that I like are in a trilogy: Dragonsong, Dragonsinger, and Dragondrums.

    My favorite books about dragons are the Pitdragon books by Jane Yolen. Also a trilogy.
