Eragon

I'm about half way through Eragon and I love it. I haven't seen the movie yet but I heard it isn't that great, not as close to the book as it should be.

Anyone else read it?

I have read Eragon and Eldest, I liked them both. The movie wasn't so bad. I think it's just that the books seem to be heavily influenced by other authors of the same genre ( I think that was the major complaint). That's how we find new authors that we like.... He/she writes like so and so, so if you like one you should like the other. They said he was influenced by Anne Mccaffrey and David Eddings... Just made me want to read it more. Can't wait for the 3rd book.

I HATED HATED the movie. It BUTCHERED and tortured the storyline. If they are to make a second movie about the second book it will be next to impossible!

On the other hand I LOoooooooooove the books. Awesome books! Pretty darn good for a 20 year old I think.

*impatiently awaits the third book*
