One stone, one boy and the world in his hands, so many things can change over a night. The poor farm boy finds a blue stone when he is out hunting, the stone turns out to be a dragon egg so just over a night his life changes drastically. Soon he is thrown in to a life of adventures and power struggle.
Eragon is the first book in a series of 4 different books, so the story doesn’t really end before that last one. The plot in this is about Eragon who is a poor boy who live in village called Carvahall and he finds a dragon egg. When his uncle is killed, he and a man named Brom need to flee. When that happens the book really takes off and he needs to get to the resistance movement called Warden who is fighting the evil king who rules the world named Algaesia. Eragon has to make a lot of hard decisions when they try to make it to Warden and at the same time Eragon needs to be trained in both magic and fighting skills.
The story is a science fiction and you get to meet a lot of different characters and that’s one of the reasons I like it and the creativity from the author who was only fifteen when he wrote Eragon. I liked the book because of the story and I can’t wait to pick up the next one but I think you need to be in to science fiction and it’s really made for early teenagers. At last I give this book 2,5 out of 5 apples because it’s not the best book and it´s written for a bit younger people I think but it is not bad at all, so that’s why it gets two and half apples.
