Title:  Eragon
   Author: Christopher Paolini
   Release Date: August 26, 2003

     Fifteen-year-old Eragon believes that he is merely a poor farm boy—until his destiny as a Dragon Rider is revealed. Gifted with only an ancient sword, a loyal dragon, and sage advice from an old storyteller, Eragon is soon swept into a dangerous tapestry of magic, glory, and power. Now his choices could save—or destroy—the Empire.

My Stance:

     While I have fallen behind a bit, the list of books that I want to read, has grown. More so than the books that have recently just came out. This Wednesday segment is getting harder and harder to do, and I find that I'm not really looking at older books that I want to get my hands on. I hope to change that with time.

     With Eragon, I was shown it by my girlfriend, and while I have been looking at it. It's not on my list of books that I need to pick up and read. Not because my girlfriend will more than likely gouge my eyes out if I don't attempt to read it, but that the book sounds rather good. Eragon's always got my attention, but it's the synopsis that has held me back. There just isn't a lot from the preview of the book to try to understand or grasp my head around and for that reason I have been hesitant on it for a long while.

     I have always been a fan of books on dragons and the lore behind the creature. One of the first few books I read back in high school was Dragon's Blood. It's a book that is similar to this, but there is a few differences that I can tell already. I want to get into this book, badly and hope that it lives up to my high expectations of the book as well.
