A few of months ago I found out that the fourth book in the Inheritance Cycle would be put out soon. I don't know the exact date (it doesn't really matter to me). When i was eleven, I loved this book, and devoured the series. Now... I'll just be blunt, Eragon was horrible. I hated ERAGON, the main character, which is always a bad sign, I mean c'mon. Shouldn't you at least somewhat like the protagonist? Putting all comparisons to The Lord of the Rings (an excellent series that I do recommend and there is no comparison as far as quality goes) aside, I just can't say i liked this story at all. I felt like it was an old worn out storyline that's been used once too many times. Be original, PLEASE! I am sad to say that there is a book out there I just can't bear to finish. I'll give you a quick rundown of what I read.
Poor, average farm boy finds a mystical blue "stone" that appears out of thin air. Boy takes "stone" home. Boy then finds out that the "stone" is actually an egg, a dragon egg (didn't see that one coming *points to cover*) Boy hides dragon. Scary, mysterious creatures come to his town looking for him. Creatures kill boy's uncle/father figure. Boy wants revenge. He stumbles upon a great
That concludes my rundown. It's not the entire book, of course, because I didn't read it all but that's all I got to and it was... 1/5 Stars
