About the Author

Christopher Paolini was born in Southern California on November 17, 1983, but grew up primarily in Paradise Valley, Montana. He was home schooled and at the age of 15, graduated from high school through an accredited correspondence course at American School in Chicago, Illinois. He decided to write mostrar mais a book and after three years of writing and editing, Eragon was self-published in 2001. The Paolini family spent the following year promoting the book themselves by giving presentations to the local library and high school and then eventually branching out to libraries, bookstores, and schools across the United States. After his step-son read a copy of the book, author Carl Hiaasen brought Eragon to the attention of publisher Alfred A. Knopf, who acquired the rights to publish Eragon and the rest of the Inheritance Cycle in 2003. The other books in the cycle include Eldest, Brisingr, and Inheritance. Eragon was made into a movie in December 2006. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

Pequena biografia
Paolini was raised in the Paradise Valley, Montana area. His family members include his parents, Kenneth Paolini and Talita Hodgkinson, and his sister, Angela Paolini. Home schooled for the duration of his education, Paolini graduated from high school at the age of 15 through a set of accredited correspondence courses from American School in Chicago, Illinois. Following graduation, he started his work on what would become the novel Eragon and its sequel Eldest, both set in the kingdom of Alagaësia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christop...

Christopher James Paolini (born November 17, 1983) is an American author. He is best known for The Inheritance Cycle, which consists of the books Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, Inheritance, and the follow up short story collection The Fork, the Witch and the Worm. His first science fiction novel, To Sleep in a Sea of Stars, will be published on September 15, 2020. He lives in Paradise Valley, Montana, where he wrote his first book.

Following his high school graduation, he started his work on what would become the novel Eragon, the first of a four-book series set in the mythical land of Alagaësia.

In 2002, Eragon was published for the first time by Paolini International LLC, Paolini's parents' publishing company. To promote the book, Paolini toured over 135 schools and libraries, discussing reading and writing, all the while dressed in "a medieval costume of red shirt, billowy black pants, lace-up boots, and a jaunty black cap." He drew the cover art for the first edition of Eragon, which featured Saphira's eye, along with the maps on the inside covers of his books.




So, in this book there's an AI and it calls some of the ppl it works for "meatbag"! Can you imagine? AI is supposed to be respectful and this one is snide! Wow, great stuff. That and so many more piping fresh ideas about SF in this masterpiece.

The writing was excellent, but this was a DNF for me solely on the basis that this wasn't the story I wanted. After peeking at the last chapter, I think I want Tales from Alagaesia #2. I need dragon babies. I didn't really care for Angela's backstory, or a random tale from a previously unknown girl.

Great characters, absolutely incredible audio book reading, fun action and drama, a pretty ok world, ok plot… and in the end it didn’t open my thinking much to new ideas despite featuring many. Possibly because the author emphasises action and drama over ideas.

The problem with this book is that it is primarily a fantasy adventute and only secondarily honours some of the interesting ideas conveyed in its world. The last chapters include long discussion about the background world physics but in a sci-fi story i would have expected that to be integral core of the story.

Murtagh picks up where the Inheritance Cycle ends but follows Murtagh and Thorn on their adventures. I was excited to return to this world but found it difficult to delve back into the series. Having read the main series as they were released 20 years ago, I didn't get the tug back into the story. I would have liked to see more character development from Murtagh. It really felt like his entire character was that once he was made to do bad things. I love a redemption arc but I felt like this lacked depth. At almost 700 pages, I felt like it could have been condensed. The author's voice has certainly changed, and given he wrote Eragon as a teen I guess that is to be expected. Overall, a solid high fantasy novel that could be enjoyed independently of the original series.… (mais)
