: So. Anyone read the Eragon series? Is it any good? Should I read the book and eagerly anticipate the movie? I was dreading the potential boredom of a fantasy free holiday season but I'm hoping there's a reason to be excited! Anyone know of anything else coming out? Epic Fantasy, Historical Epic, anything epic?

Well, I read Eragon and thought it was really, really bad. Definitely felt that it was derivative of every fantasy cliche out there, and the characters were very poorly fleshed out. As it was written by a kid, it doesn't come as any surprise though, and I'll give the author a lot of credit for finishing it. Not sure why its so wildly popular, but my taste usually differs from what is 'popular'. At the request of my niece, I took up the second book, and couldn't get through it at all. Anyway, the movie could very well be much better than the book!
