Now here's a book that will surely captivate your eye, heart, and a headache. The cover will be staring at you menacingly as you try to decide which book you should steal. Ah yes. The cover I do have to admit looks nice, with a blue backdrop covering the whole cover. A dragon is staring at us and the words Eragon are below all this blue in white letters. If the cover is the only thing that captivates you’re eye and the only thing you like about the book, then this is the book for you! The inside however, just like my imagination, is an ancient curse… Some readers may love this book, but I don’t. The writing style does not appeal to me, I didn’t get into the story, and when I have to look in the glossary, and online some place to remember just who in fact the bad guy is again, that kind of irks my tidy mind. This book shouldn’t be set carefully aside; it should be hurled deep into hyper space, or in front of the death stars main guns. There is a sequel to the book, but I shall use my Jedi mind tricks to be sure that eldest never comes into my hands. With weak story elements, lagging story telling, and character distinction issues, this book goes on the bottom of my recommend list. There are better books out there, but if you like hearing star wars all over again in a different binding, then this book may be for you. I however, give this book a one lone Jedi knight out of 5. Let’s hope when that the force grows stronger in the final book, he can go back and give this Palawan some lessons, because this one doesn’t even pass Jedi training. The force is not strong in this one.
