A mediocre book, a shitty film and a game straight from the very depths of hell itself.
The book is kind of entertaining for a little while, despite the fact that the story ripped off a mix of Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, with forgettable characters and a lack of originality (The main character's name was the word "Dragon" with the first letter changed. Go figure). It really showed that it was written by a teenager. The plot is easily predictable but it's fine for when you just want a easy, slightly shoddy book to read.
The film is bad. Lifeless and at times a bit silly, the best thing in it is the visual effects. And, of course, the same flaws in the story of the book.
The game is terrible. You cannot upgrade anything, change anything and it's so repetitive I think I actually lost a lot of my brain cells from it. The graphics are rivaled only by video games of the cretaceous period.
Give the book a try if you really want to.
Avoid the film.
Buy the game and burn it to rid the world of this abomination.
I bet I get a load of down votes from Eragon fans now. Well, apparently some people have not read a decent book in a while.
The first book in the Inheritance Cycle. A great book that is fun to read. Really interesting characters.
I Just finished Eragon, now I have to read Eldest.

"i have a huge eragon right now"
The best book ever written. It is about dragons, elves, and a lot of battles.
"I just finished Eragon. It was so INCREDIBLE! I just want to read it again and the other two books, Eldest and Brisingr!!!"
-A friend of mine... I cannot mention a name.
An entertaining book for children ages 10-15. It is entaertaing but uses many over used themes. The similarities to Star Wars and Lord of the Rings is blatently obvious.... The main charecters name is because it is one letter of Dragon...
Eragon is a good book for kids.
A pretty badass hero who has a flaming sword, an elf to hang out with, and a huge blue dragon. Plus the task of saving the world from an evil guy who wants to enslave everybody and kill all the good people. Yeah.
Eragon has a flaming sword named Brisingr.
