    Explain why the novel is amateurish. Challenge: no mention to plagiarism.

    A alot of the hate came from the fact Paolini's parents had a publishing company and he got in purely through nepotism. Remove that and he wouldn't be as well known as he is today for his Star Wars/LOTR fanfic

    I read it when I was like 16, back when the movie was coming out. It was very derivative but entertaining nontheless, maybe I found it interesting because I too was a big Star Wars and Lord of the Rings fan and around the age the author was when he wrote it. It's "okay" all things consider.

    I recently read Murtagh and am currently preparing to write my first letter to Paolini. I started this series in third grade and it was fricking awesome, I had no clue who Tolkein was or about the plagarism- just that I wanted to be a dragon rider like Eragon. I also couldn't pronounce either of the main characters' names and was stuck putting the wrong emphasis on Eragon (e-RAH-gun) and butchering Saphira (sah-FIRE-uh) until my friend corrected me. To this day the series is my guilty pleasure, I don't care if it's a load of hot garbage.

    complaints about novels or about the author who wrote it?

    should've published under a female or neutral sounding pen name

    thought it was readable compared to hp which is what share it would've taken from also displacing the female less lotr

    in other words the distinctions are political and the philosophy of it all relates to a less relevant crowd and so it would've generated more backlash and less mojo to do anything but let it pop and fizzle

    look to today though and hp is for millenial female equivalent of grouchy lonely old male boomers

    and kids these days just learn to emulate both of those and become cold and dead inside before they're even physically matured

    bad examples, but also should say necessary or academic at least

    honestly think it'll resurface later after say gen x are ... they're kind of like the silent generation of the culture war and it'll come back as the sort of propaganda to replace war flicks of stupid political memes nobody wants anyone to remember

    I was miffed he didn't explain how sorcerers used spirit magic in the cycle. He also had a tendency to go into too much detail describing visuals. He'd say something like the main character glanced around a corner and then spend like two paragraphs describing all the details of some guards clothing. I want to say he got better about it, but I can't recall for sure.

    However I will say he did a good job at selling the main character as the illiterate farm boy from a small isolated settlement. Even at the end he managed to balance that initial ignorance with the slap dash unorthodox education Eragon got. I also enjoyed the psychic banter between Eragon and Saphira. While some elements of humor didn't always work for they always felt earnest.

    Anyway what color was your oc dragon partner? Don't deny, we all did it. Mine was white because I was hyper fixated on animal albinism at that time in my childhood.

      books or otherwise if you get used to too high of a quality the lack of new or the drive to find more may as well find pandoras panties squared under a trolls outhouse

          grammar is for people with too much patience
          I used to like the color white because clouds fly idk

          there is getting too used to high quality literature, and then there is actively liking literature written by a 14 year old.

          are you fricking moronic?

          14 is the goldilocks range for almost everything and only the unclean fail to realize this truth as for actually liking it well it's dumber to actually like anything more

            I read it to avoid dying of boredom in school which was essentially a mandatory prison sentence

            like is definitely too strong of a word, but every other fan base and every other genre is nonetheless dumber in a wisdom sense

            perfection or whatever they're talking about is ... unwise stupid flappery fappery flippantry idk stupid

      This. It was a fun read as a kid, and I enjoyed the world and characters back then. I have no desire to reread it now, since it’s very much written for pre-teens as it’s audience.

    I read it when I was ten after being drawn to the cool dragon on the cover in the library. I enjoyed it very much. I didn’t even realize the heavy similarities to things like star wars and lotr then, I was just happy to read about more dragons. It is very much a book for young kids but it is also a fun one.
