Eragon: Reviewed

Author:Christopher Paolini
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 8 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up
Year of publication:2003

Involving dungeons and dragons style story, with dragons of the Anne McCaffery model. (You know, the inhabitant of the egg becomes impressed on a single special human. They grow up together and have adventures.)

Amazingly well-written by a 15 year old homeschooler. Grabs you right from the beginning and pulls you along.

My 11 year old is not sure she'll survive until we get the next book in the series.

And here is our review of Eldest, Book Two in this trilogy.

-- Emily Berk
