Eragon by Christopher Paolini Part Two

12 Mar

This week I finished Eragon by Christopher Paolini.  It was a really good book.  I couldn’t put it down until I had finished it!  The ending was so good, had to start the second book, Eldest, right away!  This has become one of my favorite series! I’m not going to blog about any more of these books, though, because I want you to read them yourselves!

Christopher Paolini used a lot of author’s craft in this book.  He described things in detail, and made a lot of inferences.  In Eldest, he makes a lot of inferences to the things that happened in Eragon.  I assume that he does the same in Brisingr and Inheritance.  He also used a bunch of similes and metaphors.  He didn’t really use much personification or alliterations, though.  Even without that, his writing is really good.

There are a lot of changing characters in this book.  Two characters, the Twins, aren’t very nice toEragon when he first meets them.  They get redeemed later on, by helping Eragon.  However, in Eldest, it turns out that the things that redeemed them were false.  Another character, Roran, Eragon’s cousin, falls out of touch with Eragin when he leaves with Saphira.  He hates Eragon for leaving and blames him for his father’s death at first.  When Roran and Eragon meet again in Eldest, Roran forgives his cousin.  Anyways, this book gets a check +.
