We've all heard of it. A surprising portion of us have read it. What did CP do right? What did he do wrong, and how can we learn from him? I have a personal bias towards it because Eragon changed my life. It got me into epic fantasy and to delve further into the genre; it inspired me to try to be a teen author. On fansites and forums I made new friends, several of them I still have with me today. Heck, I met my first boyfriend through Eragon! Although I can't read the books now without feeling like I have something stuck on the roof of my mouth, I smile when I think of the memories and love I've felt for it in the past.
