But when the stone brings a dragon hatching, Eragon realises he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself. Overnight his simple life is shattered and he is thrust into a perilous new world of destiny, magic and power. With only an ancient sword and the advice of an old storyteller for guidance, Eragon and the fledgling dragon must navigate the dangerous terrain and dark enemies of an Empire ruled by an evil King. Can Eragon take up the mantle of the legendary Dragon Riders? The fate of the Empire may rest in his hands...The author is Christopher Paolini.Hide synopsis

I read this book when it first came out. I fell asleep reading it as I just could not put it down. There is some very interesting ideas floated around in the book that makes you place yourself right alongside Saphira and Eragon and help push them along through the story. When the movie came out, I was not too disappointed, as there have been by far much worse movie remakes of books that were very disappointing, like battlefield earth. I had to reread the book 5 times to get the bad taste out of my mouth from watching that piece of trash. The movie Eragon stayed true to the idea of the book, though I missed watching Saphira grow up much slower in the book then on the screen. Another item that would have been sweet to watch would have been the great crystal that shattered. I also wondered why Arya did not have pointed ears, she is a Elf, right? But this is about the book, and a very wonderfully written book it is in that it will grab you and not let you go until the final sentence has been read, then will have you wanting more.
