I can't stand the Eragon books. Made a movie of the first book with Malkovich and Irons.

Amazon review of it are great:

"The story is cliched, formulaic and barely passable as are the characters and the language is simply what you would expect from a somewhat precocious teen fan of adult fantasy. If you have any experience in the field of fantasy at all, reading Eragon will feel like a visit to Las Vegas (though not so tacky)--sure you can see New York and Paris and Italy, but they are mere shadows of the real thing. "

"The prose is an unholy mish-mesh of melodramatic simple sentences. "

"The plot is hackneyed and clichéd. Readers are unlikely to come out of the experience with a single thing that couldn't be taken from the typical fantasy series of the past fifty years"

"The powerful forces of mediocrity must be gloating and laughing all the way to the bank. "

I could go on for days.

-HECK!

Anyway, what made me post this is I saw a third book is coming out. Fuck that.

I believe my post was saying that he's a braver man than I, I wouldn't even read reviews on it...

But you gotta give the kid props for doing his thing and making money off it. I wouldn't give him a dime of my money, but he's got other people hook, line and sinker. Good for him.

True. Just like a Britney Spears album. Wouldn't wipe my ass with the CD jacket, but people do buy it.

Crazy world.

The kids parents self- published it, then they shopped it and hawked it at Universities. I think any good publisher would have seen too many rip offs in the book, but it was allowed since the kid was only 15 when he wrote it.

Also, '15 year old boy writes "epic" fantasy tale' is a brilliant marketing ploy.
