    "ERAGON is fantastic! It's marketed as a YA book, but it's perfect for adults who like a fun fantasy as well. A perfect escape and with summertime knocking at our door, I highly recommend it as a beach read. The best part to me? It's the first in a series, so as soon as you finish it, you can move right on to the next one! "

    "Eragon is almost as prolific as Lord of the Rings at this point. Don't let the intended audience fool you, this book is a great read whether you're 15 or 55. If you like fantasy and have somehow missed Eragon, you're missing a lot!"

    "I think one of the best must-read books after reading Percy Jackson is Eragon by Christopher Paolini. It's a great book and is the lead book of a great series. I read it then passed it on to my 14-year-old daughter and she also loved it. "

    "As someone who loves Harry Potter, I immediately dove into this series after finishing up with Hogwarts. It is an exciting fantasy world filled with an awesome dragon. My 10 year old did lose interest after the first chapter, so I'll be saving this series for a couple more years for him."

    "Has to be one of my favorite books and movie of all time. Eragon's epic battle with the evil king made this movie legendary. The last dragon egg and it was found boy a poor farmer's child and gifted him with the power to save the kingdom. This book is magnificent and a great read and not to mention that I have seen the movie at least 20 times."

    "This is one of the few books I can think of written by a teenager, let alone a whole series. It is critically well received, and has a lot of fans all over the world, so the quality is there. It's not a complicated series, so the act of reading it is relatively simple, but you'll be engaged the whole time. You could do much worse than this book series."

    "Eragon and its associated book series are somewhat similar to the Harry Potter series. It seems like it is more focused around mythical creatures than about people performing magical spells. Kids seem to think it's a good page-turner though, it might be a good book to pick up for your kids for a road trip or something."
  • Jane Garza

    "This book would be great for adults and for 15 year olds that like stories such as Lord of the Rings. It is not like Harry Potter where it was intended for a younger audience so much and adults read it but I think both age groups would enjoy it anyway."

    "Eragon is an excellently written book and more so, a fantastic one in a great lineup of books in general. This is quite the series and I'd suggest going back to read through them before going into this one. Unless you already have, in which case just get this book!"

    "I read this when I was the same age as the main character (15). I could really identify with the plights and exploits. Easy to read, and more than that it was fun. This set me off on a lifelong quest for fantasy and fun times."

    "I usually really enjoy fantasy books, so I thought I would give this series a try. The best that I can say is it's okay. It is a fun read, but there isn't anything new or interesting about. It's all been done before and it's been done better. If you are looking for books with elf characters, you would much better off with LOTR."

    "A very good book that has danger and keeps the main character on his feet at all times. How will Eragon use his power? I found the book moving along at a good clip, although I would not say that the majority of the time Eragon is on the run. His use of his new powers is interesting to follow."

    "This book is what fantasy is all about; poor farm boy is revealed to actually be a dragon rider. In Eragon (Inheritance) Chris Paolini continues the inheritance cycle series. These books were marketed to the teen reader but are as applicable to adults as Tolkien. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes fantasy fare."
    Sandra Chavez

    "I love this book. It is one of the best fantasy book ever written. Eragon is the first book of the series and it is filled with great characters, adventures, tenderness, friendships, coming of age and all within a fantasy setting that almost feels like it could actually exist. I have enjoyed reading this book multiple times. "

    "I know this is a "kids" book, but the preeteen/young teen is a great genre. This was a pretty long book, which is fantastic, especially since it's the first in a series. Plenty of time I can spend in this world! It definitely has the sophistication to capture the attention of all ages. The outline is a bit formulaic, but hey, a heroes journey is a heroes journey."

    "Eragon (Inheritance) is the first book in the tetralogy Inheritance Cycle. It also happens to be one of the greatest book and series ever written so it would be a great fit for eleven-year-old girls if they are looking for a series to spark their imagination and wonder. It tells the story of a fifteen-year-old farm boy Eragon who goes on a series of adventures after discovering a dragon's egg, ensuring that his life will never be the same again. Would highly recommend not only this book but all the other books in this series."

Now that I am the parent of two young children, I look forward to the day when we can begin reading this together. The thought of reading this book with my kids sounds so exciting and heart warming.
