5.0 out of 5 stars Fandabidosie!, 12 Jan 2007
I am 14 and I thought this book was fantastic. My dad bought the first one and after that I just couldn't wait to read this. I still read parts of it almost every day, especially when I am unhappy, and can barely put it down to go to bed.

I like the character Eragon because unlike most heroes he is not perfect and spends his time being saved by people who are smarter and more powerful than him including his dragon Saphira.

The film of Eragon was awful but I can't wait for the next book to come out!
