I also enjoyed the series, but the first book I could tell was definitely written by a younger person. There were some minor plot logic and descriptions that didn't quite make sense. However, in the end it is a good read and I own all four in the series. I hope Paolini writes more, but he may decide to move on. I will also comment - the movie was TERRIBLE. It left out so much of what made the book enjoyable that it just ended up stinking. I don't know if that had to do with budget or time, but it almost made me want to cry.
