I've been in the mood for some more epic fantasy ever since I finished Game of Thrones in February, so I decided to start Eragon last night. My sister actually gave me this as a present a year or two ago, but I never got around to it until now.
Eragon. The plot of Star Wars. The names of Tolkien. The writing style of Jim Theis. Sums it up, really.
I did start reading it some either right after or right before my post about it, and I can see that pretty clearly. While reading the prologue I was able to pretty cleanly able to line up what was happening with the opening of A New Hope. I was able to do the same with more of the plot as I skimmed the Wikipedia synopsis.
