Eragon by Christopher Paolini
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.
I put off reading this for a long time because I saw the movie. To me the movie was....terrible. I hated it. There wasn't much to like because the whole story was missing. Without reading the book I could tell that the movie left a lot of stuff that was in the books out. So my aunt read this book just a little while before I did and was telling me how good the book was. My first opinion of the book before I read this book was not good. But as I read from cover to cover I got ingrained with the story of the dragons (not the cute barely ferocious dragons but the actually scary and intelligent dragons from the book)and the rider. I learned the history of the riders and all of the other stuff I'm not gonna tell you because I don't want to give anything away. I learned Brom's story as they introduced charectors that wern't even in the movie...I was awestruck by just how AWESOME this whole world is. It's amazing, it truely is. I would recomend this book to anyone.
