SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy—until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. Gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save—or destroy—the Empire.
Do not be intimidated by the size of this book. Do not be intimidated that it is just like all of the other high fantasy dragon books out there; because it is not. Do not worry that because this book was written by a fifteen-year-old, it is going to suck; because it doesn't. Do not worry that the book is going to be as bad as the movie, Eragon, was, because the book is so different and sooo much better. And, most importantly, do not let this book gather any more dust; read it. Right now. You will not regret it!
